COSC – certified automatic movement
$17,700.00 *Sold Out
The Toric is the very first wristwatch case designed by Michel Parmigiani and pays homage to the essence of watchmaking in its purest form: exceptional engineering; a movement, developed, produced and decorated with the greatest care to create the perfect celebration of time. Appropriately, the timepiece chosen to commemorate Michel’s milestone 70th birthday hails from that family, which was revived and elegantly redesigned in 2017. The Toric Heritage is a limited edition of 70 pieces, each one a ticking tribute to Michel Parmigiani and his inestimable impact on the watch industry, which continues unabated, through the 21st Century and into the master watchmaker’s 71st year and beyond.
Automatic winding movement
Also attesting to Michel Parmigiani’s dedication to both artistry and precision is the movement, the COSC certified Parmigiani Fleurier in-house Caliber PF441. It meets the most stringent standards for accuracy and reliability partly in thanks to its use of variable inertia balance which ensures long term stability, greater shock resistance, and much less sensitivity to the watch wearing position for optimal isochronism. This robust constancy is reinforced by the double barrel which allows for a more stable and linear distribution of energy. This impressive movement results in a 55-hour power reserve beating at a brisk 28,800-vph frequency. Its haute horlogerie decorations include Côtes de Genève stripes, polished angles, circular-graining, spiral-wound, and circular-graining on the plates alone. All 7 bridges are hand beveled and the solid 22 ct rose gold oscillating weight features the same Grain d’Orge guilloché engraving seen on the dial.
