The Pershing collection was born from a meeting between Parmigiani Fleurier and the eponymous superyacht builder. The ocean is far from being an exclusively male domain and so for women, Parmigiani Fleurier has dreamed up this sporty chic, sensual and feminine creation.
With the Pershing “zero-zero-two” Asteria model, Parmigiani Fleurier has designed an elegant and relaxed chronograph for dynamic, active women. Its racy and technical character is combined with elements that add a touch of sensuality and femininity. The dials are adorned with mother-of-pearl and painted at the back in an azure colour that appears through transparent detailing. The small second is represented by a mischievous starfish that is also known as asterid, which marks the time that passes from his five arms. The counterweight of the second hand is in the shape of an octopus.
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 audacity of the Pershing model’s style is imposing, while it stands out with its racy look.
The result of Parmigiani Fleurier's partnership with the eponymous Italian yacht manufacturer, the Pershing chronograph has been designed for use in a marine environment. Its unidirectional rotating bezel to measure immersion times, its hands coated in luminescent material, and its water resistance down to 100 meters give it the ideal characteristics required for a diving watch. The tachymetric measurement indication, based on 3 metres, makes it an ideal on-board instrument.
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 design is magnified by superb finishes, with bridges angled by hand and “Côtes de Genève” decoration. Its two series-coupled barrels ensure 55 hours of autonomous operation. Its pendulum beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Comprised of more than 300 components, this calibre 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.
