Parmigiani Fleurier Forma XL Repetition Minutes

Representing the spearhead of the resolutely modern approach adopted by Parmigiani Fleurier, the Forma XL is fitted for the first time ever with a mechanical complication movement. The minute repeater mechanism, traditionally perceived as a classic watch complication, reveals a new form of modernism expressed through the streamlined design of the Forma. The dial is in 18-carat gold. Mechanical hand-wound Parmigiani Fleurier Calibre 350. Hour, minute and small seconds functions at 6 o’clock. Minute repeater striking the hours, the quarters and the minutes on two gongs. The sunburst engine-worked motif on the dial is inspired by the resounding tone of the minute repeater gong and features an undulating pattern opening up from the centre. Pink gold case.
