Watches are a real passion of ours here at Coolector HQ and it never ceases to impress us just how much painstaking precision and delicate craftsmanship goes into the making of high end watches. Watchmakers seldom come more well regarded than Parmigiani Fleurier so when they announced a new watch launch, the stunning Toric Chronomètre timepiece, we inevitably sat up and took notice and, it’s safe to say, we were not disappointed.
Parmigiani Fleurier is a Swiss watchmaker that may not be the oldest on the market, it was formed back in 1996 but it’s one of the most impressive, with a stunning back catalogue of watches to which the Toric Chronomètre makes a stunningly stylish addition. The brand is a real breath of fresh air in the watchmaking world as they have full control over the production process and a unique creative freedom that isn’t often seen in matchmaking today and, as a result, can deliver timepieces as exemplary as this Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronomètre Watch.
Understated Elegance and Refinement
Whilst Parmigiani Fleurier may perhaps be best known for timepieces that pack a visual punch, there is a good deal more refinement with the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronomètre Watch from this exceptional Swiss watchmaker and we’re certainly impressed with the understated look and feel of what is clearly a wonderfully well made watch. Boasting deliciously intricate detailing throughout its design, this magnificent timepiece is going to appeal to those horology aficionados who love attention to detail and the dapperness it delivers is second to none.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronomètre Watch is a contemporary reimagining of the first watch designed by Michel Parmigiani and this traditional looking timepiece takes things back to basics by just displaying the time and date only. For men who want a watch that doesn’t see the need to be ostentatious and would instead rather have a timepiece that delivers an unparalleled level of sophistication, the Toric Chronomètre Watch gets our vote here at Coolector HQ.
Boasting an eye-catching 40.8mm three-part case, the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronomètre has been released in your choice of either 18ct white or red gold and the timepiece has been crafted very much with comfort as a chief consideration. Measuring a mere 9.5mm in thickness means that it sits comfortably on the wrist and the impressive ergonomic design of the lugs make it the perfect choice for an elegant dress watch fit for any occasion.
Unquestionably stylish and exceptionally well crafted, there are a number of distinctive, well considered features to the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronomètre Watch that fans of luxury timepieces are going to appreciate – most notably, the intricately designed bezel. Taking its design inspiration from the structure of a Doric column which has then been commingled with the spiral construction of a pointed shell Michel Parmigiani discovered on a beach in Malaysia, there is a real tangible sense of luxury to this phenomenally stylish timepiece.
As big fans of understated, traditional style watches here at The Coolector, this latest offering from Parmigiani Fleurier was always going to resonate with our design and taste sensibilities but such is its level of refinement, we’re in little doubt that they will positively fly off the shelves and become one of Swiss watchmaker’s most popular timepieces to date.
With an automatic, in-house caliber PF 331 movement, operating at 28,800 vph and a max power-reserve of 55-hours, you can see that this cracking timepiece also delivers in the performance department. With a movement crafted from 220 moving parts (visible from the case back), this is one of the more complex watches you’re likely to encounter and for any man looking for the ultimate in elegance for their wrist, this more than fits the bill.
