Parmigiani Fleurier Ovale Pantographe

For the amazing Ovale Pantographe timepiece, Parmigiani Fleurier has drawn inspiration from a 1780s oval pocket watch that is fitted with a system in which two pawls in a cam enable the hands to extend and retract. Parmigiani Fleurier has incorporated the highly ingenious mechanism of this antique pocket watch into its Ovale Pantographe wristwatch.

The Pantographic hour and minute hands of this timepiece comprise more than 30 elements in continuous movement. To ensure the flexibility and rigidity of these telescopic hands, the manufacturer has chosen a very special material used in automotive industry: an aluminium alloy with a magnesium base.
The Ovale Pantographe is available two case versions: White gold or rose gold. Parmigiani Fleurier equipped this creation with a movement made entirely from rose gold. Making a mechanical watch movement entirely in gold needs highest levels of expertise and brand new techniques are also required in polishing and engraving. This manual winding movement featuring 28 jewels boasts an 8-day power reserve.
The silver dial is stamped with a decorative "barley grain" pattern, which adds a further touch of sophistication to this already refined piece. The indices, replacing the transfers used on the previous model, lend it a richness and brilliance. The disc power reserve and the large date window at 6 o'clock complete this harmonious dial.

With its Hermès strap and rose gold ardillon buckle, the Ovale Pantographe is available in a limited edition of 50 watches.
