Parmigiani - Introducing the Kalpa Collection
by WatchNetwork News, December 15, 2005

Barely thirty years ago, Michel Parmigiani launched out into the watchmaking adventure, guided by his unchanging passion for the restoration of fine traditional timepieces and objets d'art. In 1996, the first Parmigiani Fleurier watch collections emerged from the Fleurier workshops and were presented to the public.

In just under a decade, Parmigiani Fleurier has succeeded in equipping its workshops with the means to ensure extremely high-quality production. The entirely vertically-integrated industrial facility thus established constitutes one of the rare truly complete watch Manufactures in Switzerland specialising in Haute Horlogerie.

All the professions within the art of watchmaking are united within the Manufacture, which is extremely efficient in the fields of Research and Development, design, watch exteriors (the conception and production of dials and cases), micro-mechanical engineering (the conception and production of machine-tools), precision profile-turning (for making movement components), machining, assembly and casing-up.

The very best efforts are dedicated to ensuring that Parmigiani Fleurier remains a standard of reference for Swiss watchmaking refinement among a broad public imbued with a love of fine mechanisms and for whom 'tailor-made' know-how is essential.

Providing a warrant of longevity and independence, the confidence and the support of the Sandoz Family Foundation, demonstrated right from the creation of Parmigiani Fleurier, represents a precious and inestimable guarantee of the brand's lasting and harmonious development. Extremely selective by nature, Parmigiani Fleurier is currently distributed worldwide through a high-quality network of the finest points of sale.
