The chic and sporty spirit of the Kalpagraphe collection is designed to perpetuate the elegance of the Parmigiani Fleurier style. While its contemporary look is made all the more imposing by the gold streamlined case and dynamic dials, the refinement demanded by the values of Haute Horlogerie is reflected in every detail.
The Kalpa model is characterised by its elegant case in the shape of a "barrel". This seminal design was one of Michel Parmigiani's first and established the brand’s aesthetic codes. Its shape is based on the application of the golden ratio, a geometric reference point that ensures a ratio with harmonious proportions. The case, whose incline has been studied to identify the perfect curve, is extended by elegant lugs and hugs the wrist with a view to achieving the ideal ergonomic fit.
Given its style and functionality as well as its comfortable user experience, the automatic chronograph has become the archetypal sports watch. Featuring the Calibre PF334, the first chronograph movement manufactured by Parmigiani Fleurier, the strength of the Kalpagraphe’s style is imposing, while it stands out with its racy look. Shaped to withstand the greatest of time pressures, its perfect ergonomic design ensures exceptional wearing comfort with maximised use.
The strength of its style is accentuated by its dial, which is elegant and original in the way it enhances the chronograph features. The counters together form an oblique figure of '8', a symbol of eternity that has become a hallmark of the Parmigiani Fleurier chronographs. The presentation of these indications enables a simple and immediate read of measured times.
Automatic & chronograph movement
The Calibre PF334 is an automatic-winding chronograph movement, ensuring precision and reliability as well as a comfortable user experience. The sheer excellence of its modern design is magnified by superb finishes, with bridges angled by hand, “Côtes de Genève” decoration and a solid gold oscillating weight. Its two series-coupled barrels ensure 55 hours of autonomous operation. Its pendulum beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. With more than 300 components, it allows for the display of hours, minutes, seconds and the date, together with its chronograph features with a large second in the centre as well as hour and minute counters.
