In 2018, Parmigiani Fleurier enriched its Kalparisma Agenda collection with a watch featuring an aventurine glass dial which emulates the twinkling of the stars, hence its name, Galaxy. Exuding feminine symbolism and a striking elegance, the Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy is an iconic part of the Parmigiani Fleurier collection for women.
The Kalparisma Agenda has a date indicator at 6 o'clock, a detail appreciated by the modern woman, and crowned by a classic small seconds window. The date window blends with the dark blue of the dial to better reveal the celestial display, and is three digits wide for optimal date reading.
The dial-making entity of the Parmigiani Fleurier Watchmaking Centre used aventurine glass to create this highly unique watch. The particles of midnight-blue glass are interspersed with gilded copper inclusions that enhance this composition, so challenging to create on the minute scale of a dial. A stone-set rose gold bezel continues the play of light to the very edge of the piece to make the watch truly exceptional.
The rectangular shape of the Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy 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 alignment of which has been carefully calculated to describe a perfect curve, sit ergonomically on the female wrist.
The calibre PF331 is the first self-winding mechanical movement from Parmigiani Fleurier. It offers the finest Haute Horlogerie finishes you would expect from Parmigiani Fleurier, and ones which very few brands would apply to such a mechanism. The bridges are sand-blasted, drawn out or "Côtes de Genève" decorated, then bevelled by hand and, finally, rhodium-plated. The oscillating weight is adorned with a guilloché barley grain motif. Michel Parmigiani has high expectations when it comes to the brand's craftsmanship: each component, however small or hidden, deserves the very finest finishes. This attention to detail is what makes the Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy so precious.
