Parmigiani Fleurier

Michel Parmigiani started his career as a restorer of antique timepieces, including the priceless collection of automata and clocks belonging to the Sandoz Family Foundation. Encouraged by Sandoz to create his own brand, Parmigiani Fleurier was born in 1996 and boasts a fully independent, vertical manufacture capable of producing everything from the movement – including all micromechanical components like the regulating organ – to the case, dial and decoration. Kalpa, Tonda, Pershing, Toric and Bugatti are the pillar collections of the brand, reflecting a unique, highly sophisticated personality that is appreciated by cognoscenti around the world. In 2016 PF introduced the Senfine escapement with its unprecedented 70-day power reserve.
