Personally, I’m not especially a fan of this kind of date display but with this watch, it actually works, as I feel one date aperture would have been too little given the expanse of blank space on the dial. Plus, the golden frame around the aperture provides a wonderful bit of comparison and brings the eye.Powering that the Toric Chronomètre is the automatic, in-house grade PF 331, which is COSC certified as a chronometer, hence the name. It runs at a standard 28,800 vph and offers a max power-reserve of all 55-hours. As you probably guessed from the dial, it’s capable of displaying the date and time just. As we have come to expect out of Parmigiani, the movement has been completed to a very large standard, with the highlight of course being the good gold, engraved rotor. All four versions are paired with a Hermès alligator strap and fitting 18k gold buckle.Boasting such a rich history, grandeur reputation and an exquisite selection of timepieces, we thought it finally time to talk about Parmigiani Perpetual Calendar watches. As a Swiss manufacturer who haven’t only remained separate but also build their own in-house movements, Parmigiani Fleurier are quite effortlessly making their way to the forefront of luxury watch design.

On July 5th, Addison Frei became the latest laureate of the Parmigiani Montreux Jazz Piano Solo Competition, captivating the jury with his enthralling repertoire. This was Addison’s first visit to Montreux, but at only 25 years old, it will surely not be the last we hear from this talented young American.

Elsewhere, over the course of two weeks, as the Parmigiani hot air balloons hovered back and forth along the Montreux riviera, music lovers were treated to a multitude of outstanding performances from many great artists.
