The Kalpa Hebdomadaire is a watch with an exceptionally unique spot in Parmigiani Fleurier’s assortments – it was the company’s first tonneau formed development. Dispatched in 1998, it’s been a backbone from that point forward, and the most recent variant is an exemplary presentation of the eight-day development in the Kalpa case.
Why This Watch Matters
While this is certifiably not a significant specialized development a la the new Kalpa Chronor or Kalpagraphe Chronometre , it is a strong, calm expansion to the current arrangement of Kalpa Hebdomadaire watches. The development is one of only a handful not many in-house tonneau (barrel) formed types in current watchmaking, and offers a multi day power reserve (“hebdomadaire” signifies week after week, from the Greek hebdomas, meaning seven, or a gathering of seven things). It likewise has an expressive plan, which gives a great deal of extension for the activity of conventional development finishing techniques.
The Kalpa case has consistently been something of an adoration it-or-scorn it plan for Parmigiani; I for one think that its engaging, particularly in company with the eight-day type PF110. You must have to some degree eccentric tastes to appreciate it, and obviously like any non-round watch it’s continually going to be something of a specialty offering, yet between the general plan and the extremely alluring development, this freshest Hebdomadaire ought to be very appealing to anybody searching for an off in an unexpected direction, in fact interesting watch from a haut de gamme watch manufacturer.
