Excellent Creation ‘core’ – Parma Gianni’s 20th Anniversary Achievements Retrospective Exhibition

In 2016, Parmigiani ushered in the 20th anniversary of the brand’s birthday. At this point, we are honored to present the “Creation” of Parmigioni-a retrospective exhibition of the 20th anniversary of Parmigiani. 25 exclusive self-developed movements will be publicly displayed for the first time in mainland China. Among them, the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire double chronograph specially created to commemorate the brand’s 20th anniversary will also meet watch collectors, presenting Swiss tradition. Fine watchmaking ‘core’ height.

   In 1976, the entire watch industry was experiencing a quartz watch crisis, and the traditional watchmaking industry was hit hard. However, Mr. Parmigiani still decided to start a business and opened a watch repair workshop. ‘If people can have as many historical watches as I have access to, they will know that traditional watchmaking can’t completely say goodbye to the historical stage,’ said Mr. Parmigiani, Michel, many years later.

   Michel Parmigiani created a watch repair technique, which also became his later professional philosophy. His outstanding watchmaking skills were convincing, and every timepiece he repaired was continuously improved, and Mr. Parmigiani began to gain a small reputation in the watch museum and collectors. In the 1980s, he was invited to commission the maintenance of the Maurice-Yves Sandoz series. It is also his outstanding ability in this field that made him fortunate to be associated with the Santos family, his appreciation and trust in his watchmaking talents, and laid the groundwork for his future watchmaking adventures. Finally in 1996, Mr. Parmigiani Michel received the resources he needed to create a brand of the same name, realizing his ultimate dream of being a watchmaker.

   Although the Parmigiani brand is now committed to continuously creating new masterpieces of timepieces, it has never forgotten the past. Watch repair is still part of the brand. Inspiration is drawn from the professional experience accumulated in fine restorations, which further enriches and creates contemporary mechanical masterpieces.

   The brand has launched a number of products since its founding 20 years ago, all of which reflect the extraordinary watchmaking standards and the talent of the brand founder. Since 1996, Parmigiani has created at least 33 independently developed movements.

   Kalpa Hebdomadaire is the first watch to be launched since the brand was founded. Its classic barrel shape was designed by Mr. Michel Parmigiani, laying the foundation for the brand’s aesthetic principles. Later, Parmigiani launched the first women’s watch Kalparisma on this basis, well-made and charming. The transversal movement adopted by the Bugatti 370 subverts the constraints and traditions of the watchmaking industry and is a perfect interpretation of the potential of independent watchmaking. Tonda Hemispheres can display two time zones, each time zone accurate to the minute. Ovale Pantographe’s design is inspired by a pocket watch repaired by Mr. Parmigiani, which realizes the amazing work of replicating retractable hands in the watch structure. The Tonda 1950 continues the simple and elegant design style of Parmigiani. Its ultra-thin movement has been proven in practice to provide the perfect solution for the subsequent loading of the tourbillon function without changing the delicate lines of the watch.

   Every timepiece launched by Parmigiani reflects the uniqueness of the brand and its fine watchmaking technology. The Tonda Chronor Anniversaire double-track chronograph released in January 2016 has the most say, as Parma Johnny’s first integrated double-tracing chronograph shows to the world the peak of the brand’s technology and outstanding achievements in the past 20 years. Michel Parmigiani gave the perfect interpretation of the brand.
