Fashion Charm Of Clocks

Parmigiani’s enthusiasm for manufacturing highly complex mechanical clocks has never diminished. In Parmigiani’s workshop, the artisans patiently repaired the ancient watch and clockwork, and combined the craftsmanship with modern inspiration into the clock making.

    In 1996, in order to celebrate the brand’s founding anniversary, a landmark work in the history of the brand, the ‘Oriental Flower’, came out. Fifteen years later, in 2011, Michel Parmigiani unveiled the Hegirian Islamic Calendar in Dubai, the world’s first mechanical clock to accurately reflect the Muslim calendar.
    Today in 2012, Parmigiani gloriously launched the ’15-day Clock’ which combines modern aesthetics and traditional watchmaking.

New patented power reserve
    Parmigiani has developed a new power reserve display method. This innovative patent is the first time it has been applied to a clock. This special device is inspired by the Maltese cross device, allowing the 2-week power reserve to be used directly on the barrel. The Maltese cross and stop (one pre-winding turn) on the side of the barrel ensures that the barrel springs perform optimally without being too tight or too loose. After winding, the bearings of the power reserve system (patent pending) are connected to the cam, and the four hands like a spider around the barrel are moved in reverse. There are four places around the pendulum to show the power reserve, and you can check the power reserve even if the clockwork rotates continuously.

Constant escapement
    Parmigiani PF920 —- as the movement of the 15-day clock, it is a simple and smart system, the escapement has eternal tension.
    The escapement wheel is free to move. The gear of the escapement shaft is equipped with a high-density pinion, and the two gears are connected by a hairspring. When the movement spring drives the gear, the balance spring will drive the escape wheel to start constant rotation. The inertia of the gears transfers the energy produced by the mainspring more evenly.

Excellent finishes
    The winding and time adjustment of the 15-day clock are performed by two keys, each performing its duties, but with the double rectangular device in the same bearing, both operations can be completed through the same opening. The two keys can also be combined into one, kept in a drawer at the bottom of the clock. The conspicuous Geneva motif on the dial, even if any minor flaws are obvious.
    But the hand-made corrugated decoration of this clock is flawless, which highlights Parmigiani’s excellent craftsmanship. The clock frame is made of a large amount of silver (1 kg) and mineral glass, and is rhodium-plated to prevent oxidation.
