The Kalpa Donna joined the Parmigiani Fleurier collection in 2006 as the first watch designed for women. Since then, this model has become the height of elegance and finesse, with its steel case majestically set with stones, and featuring guilloché dials in captivating colours and a wide choice of bracelets and straps. Every woman can choose a version of the watch to suit her personality, with the style closest to her heart.
The shape of the Kalpa Donna case is the classic "tonneau", one of the first designs that Michel Parmigiani created for his brand. This form is based on the application of the golden ratio, a geometrical reference which provides a harmonious ratio of proportions. The case and its lugs, the angle of which has been carefully calculated to describe a perfect curve, sit ergonomically on the female wrist. The sides of the steel case are set with Top Wesselton diamonds of a rare purity.
The dial of the Kalpa Donna features guilloché work, reflecting the sun's rays. This motif also echoes the segmentation of the hours: the pattern becomes a form of index. The relief inherent in guilloché work accentuates the intensity of the colours applied to it. Ivory, amaranth, and metallic blue shimmer with a unique brilliance, perfectly complemented by a stone-set or plain steel bracelet, or a linen colour Hermès alligator strap.
There is an inherently feminine softness in the design and lines of the Kalpa Donna. The curve of the case extends to the rounded lugs in perfect harmony, emphasised by a striking setting of Top Wesselton diamonds. The numerals 6 and 12 on the dial, inspired by Art Nouveau, feature exuberant curves, evoking the softness of the female form.
The Kalpa Donna is equipped with a quartz movement, with flawless craftsmanship ensuring the reliability and finesse of the watch. Decorated to the very highest Haute Horlogerie standards, this movement echoes the details that make the Kalpa Donna so precious.
