Following the release of a highly-decorated Tourbillon Double Rainbow, Swiss haute horology brand Parmigiani Fleurier has come up with yet another tourbillon, this time opting for an equally luxurious yet more subtle take.
Named the Toric Tourbillon, the brand foregoes the diamonds and vibrant colors this time, instead going with a classic 18k rose gold case measuring 42.8mm and pairing it with an extremely intricate “Guilloché Grain de riz” finished slate dial. A flying tourbillon sits cleanly at 7 o’clock, a nod to the company’s founder Michel Parmigiani, who was born at 7:08 a.m. on December 2, 1950. The rest of the dial is made up of matching rose gold applied indices and hands, all sitting underneath an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Inside, the watch is powered by none other than the brand’s very own PF517 automatic movement, itself a very decorated piece comprised of 207 components with a platinum micro-rotor and côtes de Genève decorated bridges, and holding a power reserve of 48 hours.
For those interested, Parmigiani Fleurier’s Toric Tourbillon is now available for $130,000 USD. Head over to its website to learn more.
