For its first complete collection of aquatic chronographs, there could be no better route to mastery for Parmigiani Fleurier than allying its technical expertise with one of today’s biggest boatbuilders: Pershing. A symbol of power, speed, innovation and performance, Pershing’s image was particularly suited to the creation of a first gold, palladium and steel chronograph line. In this new light, the look of the new aquatic timekeeper, especially innovative for Parmigiani Fleurier, took shape: its round and powerfully-shaped case, with stylistic emphases strongly identifying with the Kalpa line (a Parmigiani Fleurier emblem), a uni-directional rotary bezel, rubber chronograph push-pieces built into the loops, 200-metee (660 feet) water resistance, tachometer and rubber or leather straps made to measure.
Under the sign of the limited edition
The first collection created in homage to this new partnership has emerged under the sign of the limited edition "one-one-five", in honour of the biggest and most prestigious Pershing vessel, measuring 115 feet, which can be found engraved on the watch case-back. This exclusively 18 carat rose gold or 950 Palladium series comes in two dial versions, Tan and Silver, each of 115 pieces, incorporating the self-winding chronograph movement Calibre PF 190. The Pershing chronograph has an hour and minute display, as well as chronograph seconds in the center, and has one 12 hour counter and one 30 minute counter, a small seconds, plus the tachometer and large date indicator. The case is water resistant to 660 feet, and has a rotary bezel.
