Details

The Kalpa Chronor is the first tonneau-shaped integrated chronograph to be entirely manufactured by Parmigiani Fleurier. The solid gold movement is shaped to fit exactly inside the case, building further on the theme of consistency between the contents and the container, the mechanical heart and the exterior aesthetics of the watch – a theme always so important to Michel Parmigiani.

The ability to produce an integrated chronograph is the hallmark of a genuine manufacture. Unlike the modular chronograph, the movement is arranged on a single main plate that keeps all of the mechanical elements finely synchronised. The integrated chronograph is the holy grail of an independent manufacture and reflects the innovative potential of the Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking centre.

The movement is organised around a column wheel which is the nerve centre of the chronograph, the part which synchronises all its elements. This piece is more difficult to create and more precious than a simple cam, and lends the movement an elegance that can only come from this level of expertise. The column wheel is also perceptibly smoother when operating. This is what we call the chronograph's activation ergonomics.

Every aspect of working with gold during a manufacture process is complicated. Gold sticks to the tools; it is malleable and deforms easily; all the machines need to be completely recalibrated and each cutting parameter needs changing. Successfully manufacturing a movement this complex from gold demonstrates a considerable level of expertise. Its decoration, no less technical, requires more than 50 hours of work for each unit.
