The iconic Kalpa line designed by Michel Parmigiani in 1997 was enriched with a sensational anniversary model - the Kalpa XL Hebdomadaire Anniversaire - in 2016 to celebrate the manufacture’s 20th anniversary. This year, at SIHH 2017, Parmigiani Fleurier unveiled a new Kalpa XL Hebdomadaire model in a rose gold case and featuring silvered yellow dial.
The Kalpa XL Hebdomadaire is driven by the PF 110 hand-wound movement, with a tonneau shape that perfectly marries the contours of its housing. This proprietary double-barrel movement ensures an 8-day power reserve and features a patented display system. Its powerful aesthetic owes much of its impact to the repeated semi-circular forms of the bridges. Their shape is based on a cutting technique which allows for greater complexity and more internal angles. The "Côtes de Genève" decoration, the swan-neck featured on the balance, and the hand-bevelled bridges are amongst the subtle touches that demonstrate the high standards demanded by the Manufacture.
To ensure the ideal proportions so dear to Michel Parmigiani, the indicators at the top and bottom of the dial are perfectly balanced. While the identity of the piece lies in its tonneau shape, this quest for harmony creates a striking aesthetic. The delicate contemporary numerals, the solid gold indices and the original alignment of the numerals around the small seconds dial ensure perfect readability and complete this vibrant dial.
