My first journey over to Switzerland masking this business had me visiting the city of Fleurier, to see the watchmaking amenities of Parmigiani in motion. It was an eye fixed opening expertise and an unimaginable have a look at a model I used to be comparatively unfamiliar with on the time, and it included a jaunt over to Le Locle, dwelling to the watch museum inside a home known as ‘Château des Monts’. As spectacular because the work throughout the manufactory was, it was the heritage items throughout the museum, a few of which had been restored and maintained by the manufacturers founder, Michel Parmigiani, that left the most important impression.
Parmigiani Fleurier has steadily flourished within the subsequent years, with watches just like the Tondagraph GT and Tonda PF ushering in a brand new route for the model below the management of newly appointed CEO Guido Terreni. This yr marks the twenty fifth anniversary of Parmigiani Fleurier’s founding in 1996, and to mark the event, Terreni undertook a particular challenge with Michel to showcase their adept hand at restoration, and the result’s the La Rose Carrée seen right here.
