Parmigiani Fleurier, have captured this naturally alluring form in an Ovale dial and captured it in a tourbillon model.
These elevated examples of horological excellence, by their very nature, are in limited supply. Indeed, only 30 examples were created.
The tourbillon resides above 6 o’clock and close examination of the tourbillon bridge reveals a matchless example of patient endeavour. The skilled polishing of the bridge takes a timed-served artisan numerous hours to achieve. This particular tourbillon is unusual in that it rotates every 30 seconds, instead of the more usual 60 seconds. The increased rate of rotation is said to enhance the accuracy of the watch.
A power reserve indicator is located beneath noon and is presented in a crescent shaped form. The timepiece has a power reserve of 168 hours which is remarkable considering the presence of the tourbillon complication.
Adjacent 10 o’clock is an open-worked area, presented via a figure of eight aperture. It reveals some of the gear train with comely circular grained wheels partially disclosed, reaffirming the intrinsic craftsmanship.
A central seconds hand, lithe in form, with a crescent shaped counterweight, completes the ensemble of functions presented.
The PF 501 calibre is a manually wound movement, made at Vaucher Manufacture, Fleurier, a sister company of Parmigiani Fleurier and a member of Les Manufactures Horlogères de la Fondation (MHF).
The power reserve of 168 hours is very impressive, partly owing to the use of two series-coupled barrels.
