PARMAGIANI

On May 29th 1996, the brand Parmigiani Fleurier is founded. It is born from the trust woven between Michel Parmigiani and the Sandoz Family Foundation who have acknowledged his talent as a watchmaker.

In 1999, Parmigiani Fleurier’s first wrist-watch is created, the Kalpa Hebdomadaire and this piece changes the work approach. With its iconic tonneau shape movement and 8-day power reserve, it represents the brand’s first component miniaturisation and creates therewith a strong necessity in industrial partners.

Bringing together five entities that were assembled in less than 6 years, Parmigiani Fleurier’s watchmaking hub is an extensive center of know-how that enables to conceive, manufacture and perfect every single watch component. From the smallest gear wheel to the entire escapement (which is the doing of very few watch companies); from the minute details of the dial to the case in its every shape.
