Kalpa Grande Rouge
The unusual and flamboyant style
The Watch Quote™ - November 12th, 2005
Parmigiani Fleurier chooses to tinge its latest Kalpa collection with a truly bold shade by creating a brand-new glowingly radiant red colour that is a perfect match for the upcoming festive season.
Crafted at the heart of the Manufacture Parmigiani Fleurier workshops, the dials reflect a consistently original creative approach entirely in harmony with the brand’s consummate mastery of the high quality demands it imposes on each part of the movement or the watch exterior. This also applies to the new chromatic nuances that emerge in original and distinctive tones, such as the Kalpa “Blu Lavanda” or “lilas” collections already issued.
The intense specially created red of its dial exudes a distinctive radiance endowed with a depth that could only be achieved by a sunburst satin-finish on a silvered galvanic base. This incandescent glow, based on contrasts, is accentuated by the engine-turned “grain d’orge entouré” pattern. A red translucent lacquer is then applied to the entire surface, giving it a characteristic brilliance. Its applied rhodium-plated, mirror-finish numerals and hour-markers light up the dial in a unique way. The Parmigiani Fleurier “delta” shaped rhodium-plated hands are luminescent.
Produced in a limited edition, the Kalpa Grande Rouge is driven by self-winding movement Calibre PF 331, entirely crafted in-house by Parmigiani Fleurier. Its steel case gives the watch a dynamic, easy to wear appearance.
Specially coordinated with the glossy red Hermès crocodile leather strap, the Kalpa Grande Rouge is also available with a satin-finished or polished metal bracelet.
