"Guilloché" barley grain dial and gold movement

The Ovale Pantographe is inspired by an oval pocket watch dating from 1780, fitted with a system in which two pawls in a cam enable the hands to extend and retract. The Manufacture explored its own ways of solving the challenge of transferring this device to a wristwatch, which places more demands on it than the original piece, due to the range of positions the watch adopts throughout the day. Finding the perfect compromise between the weight of the components, the balance of the system and the reliability of the watch proved to be the real challenge.

 

Parmigiani Fleurier added another element to the equation by furnishing this creation with a movement featuring an 8-day power reserve and made entirely from rose gold, making it very difficult to machine. Similarly, polishing, engraving, and creating a shine on a metal which adheres to the tools used to work it meant that brand new techniques had to be employed.
