Boasting such a rich history, grandeur reputation and an exquisite collection of timepieces, we thought it finally time to talk about Parmigiani Fleurier watches. As a Swiss manufacturer who have not only remained independent but also construct their very own in-house movements, Parmigiani Fleurier are quite effortlessly making their way to the forefront of luxury watch design.
There seems to be something almost magical about the Parmigiani watch brand and the unique history behind it. Michel Parmigiani was only young when he first fell in love with the mystery of watchmaking and made a career out of this passion. He specialised in watch restoration; a field that is believed to harness only the best and most skilled watchmakers. His outstanding skillset eventually led him into the path of Pierre Landolt, president of the Sandoz Family Foundation, and in 1996 the Parmigiani Fleurier brand was born.
“Knowledge of watchmaking history and the ability to restore antique pieces are a major asset for a Haute Horlogerie workshop. At Parmigiani Fleurier, restoration has never ceased to be the soul of the brand.” – Michel Parmigiani
Now with an impressive 33 in-house movements and a prestigious collection of watches with each and every component manufactured by the brand themselves, Parmigiani Fleurier have truly made their mark within the watchmaking industry. The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti watch collection has become one of their most recognisable models and celebrates the long and established relationship between the watch and car manufacturers. The unique architecture of each Parmigiani Bugatti watch emulates a car’s engine or race course cockpit providing an unmissable piece of wrist wear.
Another example of the brand’s masterful talent is the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda watch collection. This bold and luxurious set of timepieces showcases an array of skeletonised dials, diamond decorated cases and rose gold detailing made with only the sophisticated of men and women in mind.
