A minute repeater, a tourbillon and a perpetual calendar – nothing less

The Tecnica Ombre Blanche shows impressive refinement and a discreet air of elegance. It is one of those timepieces whose value is self-evident; it does not need to flaunt its worth with opulent decorations or an especially thick case. Yet, beneath these pure, uncomplicated lines lies a tourbillon, a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater – a genuine jewel of Haute Horlogerie, limited to five exclusive pieces.

A minute repeater with cathedral chimes

The chimes on the Tecnica Ombre Blanche are called "cathedral" chimes as they form two sets of gongs around the case; this greatly amplifies the acoustic quality compared with a single set, but makes the watchmaker's work on the housing considerably more difficult. The minute repeater sounds the hours, quarter hours and minutes with an exceptional chime, immediately signalling the Tecnica Ombre Blanche's eligibility for a place in the watchmaking Hall of Fame.

A pure and elegant design

The rose gold case is very slender for a timepiece which features three grand complications, including a minute repeater. The Tecnica Ombre Blanche is characterised by the quest for refinement which drives many creations by Parmigiani Fleurier. This is why the minute repeater is activated by pivoting a knurled bezel which is delicately integrated into the profile, as a traditional side bolt would have disrupted the harmony of the timepiece.

The Grand Feu enamel dial

The dial on the Tecnica Ombre Blanche features Grand Feu enamelling, created using the champlevé technique. This procedure involves engraving a gold base, then using a brush to drop the enamel into the recesses, before finally exposing it to very high temperatures until the enamel crystals melt and fuse together. The result is a dazzling white dial whose myriad enamel layers create an interplay of light which brings it to life; a perfectly flat, satin-finished dial, which nevertheless gives a captivating impression of depth.
