Under its subtle shades of jade green, the Toric Quaestor Labyrinth contains a minute repeater with an exceptionally pure melody.
The movement is integrated into the case with greater stability thanks to an additional fixing point. Located just below the chime, a small piece links the pawl of the chime to the case, thereby ensuring that it is perfectly fixed. The sound is able to reverberate without any interference from vibrations. The movement is also equipped with a flywheel which allows the minute repeater to operate without any mechanical humming. Finally, the generously-sized platinum case is specially designed to allow the sound waves to oscillate at the best frequencies.
Comprising two layers, the dial of the piece houses a precious labyrinth. The bottom layer is a disc of extremely precious Burmese jade, onto which an openworked white gold plate is superimposed to represent the walls of the labyrinth. This finishes used on this plate alone took more than 35 hours of work to complete. Each segment length and every contour in the labyrinth is bevelled by hand. The notion of time does not apply either to this mysterious place or to the painstaking work of the Parmigiani Fleurier workshops.
