Parmigiani Fleurier Steel Kalpagraphe
A long awaited update on the previously popular steel Kalpagraphe has arrived with its skeletal hands and stunning blue dial brings this model in the Parmigiani range right up to date.
The Kalpa will not appeal to all it is no secret that a lot of people prefer round dials and cases but for those of us who do like something different whether it be a Kalpa, Panerai, or any other none round case the Kalpa and indeed the Kalpagrahe which is synonymous with Parmigiani, is such a distinctive watch to have on your wrist.
The new Kalpagraphe as with all Parmigiani watches are 100% Swiss Made and manufactured in house thanks to its ownership of Vaucher, Kalpa, Elwin, LAB and Quadrance factories, giving Parmigiani the skill and expertise to perfect cases, dials or movements and rely upon no one else. The blue of the dial is not too dark and not too light like a sapphire its colour is perfect then throw in the Chronograpgh and those gorgeous skeletal hands and you have a real winner. Put the watch on your wrist and admire the putirty of how that stainless steel grade case has been made, the comfort and look of how the watch sits on your wrist helped by those teardrop trademark lugs and then the soft sports style rubber strap which finishes off this timepiece helping to make it appeal to soemone in the boardroom or climbing up a mountain.
At £12,080 for this hand finished watch brought to you by probably the best Maison of Horology is a great value knowing you will be one of a select few to wear this delight in the world.
