Parmigiani Fleurier IONICA

Timepiece in Honour of Dr. Duchenne, Pièce Unique.
Exclusively for the Only Watch 2005 project Parmigiani Fleurier present a specially created one-of-a-kind watch. This model from the INICA collection is driven by a mechanical hand-wound mouvement, PF Calibre 110, entirely developed and manufactured by Parmigiani Fleurier. Thanks to its guaranteed eight-day power reserve, this model offers an advantage that is particularly highly prized these days: the pleasure of wearing an exceptional object without the usual constraints of daily winding. The power-reserve indication system visible on the 18-carat dial is unique in the world and has been duly patented. The extremely refined 18-carat pink gold case is entirely crafted by hand in-house and is distinguished by a double back with a protective cover adorned with an engraving inside depicting Dr. Guillaume Benjamin Amand Duchenne. An engraving on the outside also pays tribute to this distinguished personality. The Ionica timepiece is fitted with a Hermès strap and features specifically designed lugs which make it an ideally comfortable fit on the wrist.
