A unique piece dedicated to the magic of the sector time display function

The Toric Capitole Wave represents the passage of time in its most literal sense. The numerals create a flowing sequence around the 120-degree dial, lending a certain poetry to the act of reading the time. This Haute Horlogerie piece pays tribute to the unique array of watchmaking artefacts that is the Edouard and Maurice Sandoz Foundation collection, the care of which was entrusted to Michel Parmigiani before he launched his own brand.

The inspiration of a restored piece

Inspired by the Perrin Frères signed pocket watch (Neuchâtel) dating from the early 19th Century, the Toric Capitole Wave reprises the special sector time display function, but in a movement made entirely by the Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking centre. Initially restored by its restoration workshop, the pocket watch had already revealed quite a lot of secrets.  Working in complete harmony, the restoration workshop and the Haute Horlogerie department combined their expertise to develop the unique movement.

Sector time display function

The half-moon shaped opening in the Tahitian mother of pearl dial features 60 minute graduations to allow the time to be read. The hour is displayed by an Arabic numeral whose course can be followed from the first to the sixtieth minute, before the next numeral appears. However, the clarity of the display belies the mechanical complexity beneath. The module, which is directly meshed with the hour wheel, incorporates a rotary system comprising three planetary gears with four segments, each end of which bears a number.

The play of light from mother of pearl and diamonds

The Toric Capitole Wave is a unique model in white gold with a bezel set with 78 baguette cut diamonds totalling 5.28 carats. The stone setting enhances the iridescent shimmer of the white mother of pearl dial, on which the black gold decoration is superimposed in concentric waves that give the piece its name.

PF321

Hand-wound, minute repeater & sector display movement

The PF321 movement has a minute repeater with an additional module for the sector time display function. The minute repeater sounds the hours, quarter-hours and minutes on two "cathedral" gongs, so called because they in fact form two sets of gongs around the case. A flywheel ensures that the mechanism operates silently, so that the only sound is the melodious chime each time the gong is struck. The finest Haute Horlogerie finishes are of the essence on this exceptional movement, which features Côtes de Genève-decorated rhodium-plated bridges and hand bevelling that produces stunning light effects on each surface.
