This 39mm watch takes Parmigiani’s diamond-setting to new levels, from the classic watch with diamond-set bezel to a piece in which the gems completely cover the dial. The round diamonds are in four sizes, decreasing from the centre to the outside of the dial. Smaller diamonds are used around the central pivot, and around the rose-gold-plated hour indices. The watch has a rose gold case and bracelet. The Parmigiani Fleurier logo is engraved on the inside of the watchglass, and the watch has the signature Parmigiani lugs.
The case is 39 mm in diameter and slim at 8.4 mm, in rose gold, water resistance 30 metres. The bezel is set with 84 diamonds (0.65 carats) and the dial is set with 620 diamonds (2.5 carats). Hour and minute hands have a luminescent coating. The bracelet is in rose gold with folding buckle. Each watch has its serial number engraved on the caseback.
PF701 ultra-thin calibre
The movement is the PF701, self-winding, with 42 hours power reserve. It runs at 3 Hertz (21,600 vibrations per hour). It can be viewed through the sapphire caseback. It is made entirely in-house, and at just 2.6 mm thickness, it is one of the thinnest mechanical movements currently made, with platinum micro rotor.
