Introducing: The Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpa Chronor

Snappy Take

Last year, Parmigiani Fleurier appeared the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire , which is an in-house rattrapante chronograph with a development in rose gold. This year, they’re following it up with another, non-rattrapante chronograph, with an in-house, self-winding development – and a high-recurrence one for sure, at 36,000 vph.

The Parmigiani Fleurier Chronor Anniversaire

The Chronor Anniversaire was a significant declaration a year ago for Parmigiani Fleurier, and a significant accomplishment also, scoring the firm the Chronograph prize at the Grand Prix Horlogerie de Genève. To discover more, look at our Hands On from a year ago.

Why This fake watch prices Matters

Making a coordinated, programmed chronograph development is definitely not a simple errand – indeed, of all the standard horological complications (the unending schedule, the repeater, the basic schedule, the chronograph and rattrapante chronograph, etc) the programmed chronograph was the last to show up. It wasn’t until 1969 that the primary programmed chronographs showed up. For Parmigiani Fleurier, creating a year ago’s in-house Chronor Anniversaire was a significant assertion on a few levels – it was an affirmation of specialized ability (the rattrapante, or split-seconds chronograph, is generally viewed as a high complication, at a similar level as a ceaseless schedule or moment repeater). Yet, it was additionally a proclamation of commitment to a specific way to deal with watchmaking. 

The style of the Chronor Anniversaire were obviously a declaration of Parmigiani Fleurier’s set up plan character as far as development design and development. In any case, the sum and nature of completing applied to the development additionally said a lot about the company’s vision of its place in horology. The outcome wasn’t absolutely Genevan in feel, and had the somewhat extravagant quality that one frequently connects with watchmaking in Fleurier. The new Kalpa Chronor attests similar qualities, yet in the tonneau-like Kalpa case and with an all-new development as well.

Introductory Thoughts

This is the second year straight that Parmigiani Fleurier has made significant news with another chronograph development. An in-house, high beat programmed chronograph is an impressive accomplishment, and particularly with such engaging style (there are a few significant haute horlogerie firms that you’d think would have an in-house self-winding chronograph, yet don’t). Improvement time and costs will in general be very high for even a basic incorporated chronograph; as indicated by Parmigiani, this one has been a work in progress for a very long time. The lone expected cloud in the sky is that the Kalpa case by its very nature is a plan with a smaller allure than the round Tonda, albeit by and by I appreciate Parmigiani Fleurier for standing firm and keeping the Kalpa assortment in the frontal area (the development additionally looks as though it would not be hard to adjust to a round case). This will be one of the additional energizing presentations of the 2018 SIHH to see in person.
