Oval Watch with Articulated Hands

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 26, 2019:   All the watches in the Edouard and Maurice Sandoz Collection have specific features that Parmigiani Fleurier has had the pleasure of studying during their time in its restoration workshop.

It is a pocket watch of English origin. The hands are designed to trace the elliptical form of the dial. A holistic approach was adopted for this timepiece, with the case, dial and time indicators all following the contours of the shaped movement. The bezel and case-back of this gold timepiece are edged with pearls. The back of this jewelled timepiece is adorn ......read more

Master Chronometer: Raising Standards

A Quest For Precision   Dubai, UAE - November 28, 2019: In watchmaking, the margins of precision can be measured by seconds. That may seem small to most people, but for OMEGA, those seconds represent a lifetime’s work. Even in 1848, when Louis Brandt sat down to create the company’s very first watches, his ambition was to produce the most accurate movements possible. This dedication led to the 19-ligne “OMEGA” calibre in 1894, which was so admired and revolutionary within the industry, it would soon become the company’s title. Indeed, OMEGA is perhaps the only watchmaker in the world to be named after the excellence of a calibre. But this was only a starting point. The 20th century followed with numerous first-place awards at observatory tr ......read more

Restoration by Parmigiani Fleurier-Snuff Box with Singing Bird

Dubai, UAE - November 20, 2019:  Nature is a source of inspiration for all. Humans have always sought to imitate it, and automata were among the first objects to recreate natural movement. Parmigiani Fleurier has drawn on its expertise to restore many pieces, including a snuff box with singing bird produced by Frères Rochat around 1820 and belonging to the Edouard and Maurice Sandoz Collection. At first sight, the piece appears to be a 75 mm x 51 mm x 25 mm box designed to hold snuff. The materials used are all eminently precious, with the box made from finely engraved coloured gold to represent foliage, cornucopias and dolphins, and it has a compartment intended to hold snuff. Yet the piece harbours a secret. When the side button is pressed, the polished oval element edged with pe ......read more

This chronograph, created by the watchmaking centre's manufactures in 18 ct rose gold or white gold, is limited to 25 pieces of each.

Each of these twin timepieces has a jumping seconds mechanism, formed of a hand which makes one revolution per second. Parmigiani Fleurier's history began when Michel Parmigiani opened a restoration workshop in 1976. This marked the start of his in-d ......read more

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - November 04, 2019:    The “Sistema Magini” by Eberhard & Co. in its “Mod. Mag.” version was a pole of attraction at the recent Bolaffi auction where it was assigned at 156,000 euros.   The famous Eberhard & Co. split-seconds chronograph, produced in the early 1940s and instrumental for the success of an epic Italian Air Force mission, was named after the heroic pilot to whom it was issued, Publio Magini.   The chronograph was, in fact, at the centre of a relatively unknown episode of the Second World War, the round trip Rome-Tokyo flight of 1942. In that period, the Axis powers were unable to communicate via radio because their secret codes had been deciphered by the Anglo-Americans. Italy, Germany ......read more

A new model for the ladies enriches the Corum AC-One collection with luscious femininity

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - October 12, 2019:    Creating scaled-down versions of men’s watches for ladies can no longer suffice their desire for substantial and practical timepieces.

September 12, 2019 - Dubai, UAE One of Parmigiani Fleurier’s signature details is the iconic knurled bezel of the Toric Collection.
