Introducing: The Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Chronometre –

Snappy Take

This year Parmigiani Fleurier has delivered their first in-house programmed chronograph, which comes in two adaptations. The Kalpa Chronor is outwardly and stylishly a follow-on from a year ago’s honor winning Chronor Anniversaire , and notwithstanding being a 36,000 vph, self-winding chronograph, additionally has a development made of strong rose gold, with the extensions extravagantly pierced and finished. This is a less lavish adaptation of a similar fundamental development, with overall a similar specialized features.

Why This Watch Matters

At $85,000, the Kalpa Chronor (with a strong gold development) is in competition with high-end chronographs from such settled chronograph creators as Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Söhne, and Patek Philippe (for a depiction of their work, look at our Three On Three close by twisted chronographs from these creators). This less intricate rendition offers the indistinguishable case style, however with a less elaborate development that is focused on those needing a less expensive and less baroquely resplendent way to deal with development design.

Introductory Thoughts

While the Kalpa Chronor is without a doubt expected to be a feature for specialized horology and development, yet in addition high level development improvement, the Kalpagraphe Chronometre takes a significantly less pull out all the stops or-return home methodology. We’d anticipate that the quality of finishing should be comparable, yet the plan of the development – without the openworking of plates and scaffolds in the Chronor – just as the utilization of traditional materials instead of strong gold, implies somewhat less oomph in the beautifying agents office. Anyway this is as yet a high evaluation, in-house, COSC-ensured incorporated programmed chronograph development – something accessible from few other manufacturers.
