One Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Capitole watch restored by Michel Parmigiani
Michel Parmigiani is responsible for the restoration of numerous pieces in the Sandoz Family Foundation’s immense collection, as well as timepieces from the Patek Phillippe Museum and the Kremlin Museums. His latest timepiece is inspired by one of his many restoration achievements: a 19th century Perrin Freres pocket watch that tells time (without hands) via a moving hour marker along a minute track.
Serving as the model for the new Toric Capitole minute repeater with cathedral chime bells, it replicates the sector time display of the pocket watch. This required Parmigiani to recreate the complication in a version that was 10-times smaller than the original – an impressive technical feat.
This decorative Toric Capitole features an 18-carat rose-gold dial handmade by a master engraver with a circular satin finish. The double bezel mimics the pattern around the exterior case of the ingenious pocket watch and comes on a brown Hermes alligator strap together with a diamond crown.
