Kalpa Qualité Fleurier
Its name contains a promise – that of proven technical and aesthetic excellence. The Kalpa Qualité Fleurier has fulfilled the five strictest and most comprehensive certification criteria in watchmaking*, attesting to its uncompromising reliability and craftsmanship. It is equipped with the new self-winding calibre PF442, which features hour, minute and central seconds indications, as well as the date at 12 o'clock. This movement houses a series-mounted double-barrel that guarantees a better distribution of energy within the calibre and increases its power reserve to 60 hours. Each component meets Haute Horlogerie standards in terms of its finish, and the bridges are decorated with a crossed Côtes de Genève pattern whose complexity reflects the rigour of Fleurier Quality certification.
The case in 18 carat red gold marks a departure from the brand's customary rose gold. The black dial features an opaline and hand-guilloché decoration around its edge with a braid-effect pattern. The Kalpa Qualité Fleurier is distinguished by its elegant simplicity, with no detail left to chance.
*Fleurier Quality certification, which was co-founded by Michel Parmigiani, is open to all Swiss mechanical Haute Horlogerie manufactures, and evaluates the watch as a whole, including the quality of the decoration, as well as testing the movement and the operating reliability. The five certification criteria are: 1. 100% made in Switzerland; 2. High-quality craftsmanship on each component; 3. Passing the COSC test with a stricter tolerance; 4. Passing the Chronofiable test; 5. A 24-hour wear simulation test using the Fleuritest
