Parmigiani - Ovale Tourbillon

Parmigiani Ovale Tourbillon

Rose gold, Abyss Blue, power reserve and tourbillon bring to this timepiece a striking personality.

The Ovale Tourbillon is part of the Ovale Pantographe line (inspired by an antique piece) of which we have already showcased the new model unveiled at the SIHH earlier this year.

The oval is not a fixed shape. Its outline changes to suit its purpose. In both modern architecture and that of the past, the oval is both strong and unusual, subtle yet assertive. In watchmaking, the construction of Parmigiani Fleurier's timepieces is based on the simple geometry of creating tangents from two intersecting curves. The piece is harmonious, both in terms of its proportions and its gender balance, as the shape of the oval moves away from the more feminine ellipse.

With a rose gold case in three sections and a stepped bezel, the Ovale Tourbillon boasts a truly dynamic design. Curved surfaces are broken up. Straight lines replace rounded ones. And beams of light bounce off the myriad angles this creates. The signature Parmigiani horns are no exception. A graduated chamfer tapers out towards the end, lending further tension. On this timepiece, the oval adopts a new stance, an overtly masculine one with a style of its own and its  45 × 37.3 mm size.

The dial combines the ever-classic "Côtes de Genève" design with Parmigiani Fleurier's own Abyss Blue, a colour it keeps a closely-guarded secret. It is now standard practice for the Manufacture to offer a new model each year in this intense blue which is  obtained by galvanoplasty.

The Ovale Tourbillon is driven by the PF500 hand-wound movement designed by Michel Parmigiani. This 30-second tourbillon movement with power reserve indicator (one week) is finished with "Côtes de Genève" design and hand-bevelled bridges. The watch s complemented with a Hermès alligator strap, secured with an ardillon buckle.
