Founded by timepiece restorer and artisan Michel Parmigiani and officially launched in 1996 at the Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne, Swiss luxury watch brand Parmigiani was born out of a love of exquisite craftsmanship, complex horology and traditional values. Today, this Haute Horlogerie brand reflects the expertise of Michel Parmigiani, combining cutting edge techniques with timeless workmanship. Offering both men's and women's handmade watches, Parmigiani is synonymous with luxury, quality and precision.
In 2004, Parmigiani partnered with Bugatti to launch a world-first watch reminiscent of a car's engine and in 2006 a partnership was sealed with Hermès, culminating in Parmigiani watches featuring that much-coveted Hermès leather strap. In 2008 came refined and elegant watches for women featuring everything from gem-set constellations to self-winding mechanical movements and in 2015 came the thinnest flying tourbillon ever made.
Prestigious, visionary and always respectful of watchmaking history, Parmigiani watches feature meticulously decorated dials, intricate casings and complex movements at their heart. The Toric and Tonda collections remain the most classic whilst the Bugatti and Kalpa collections push the limits of creativity. Expect to find ultra-thin movements, bold titanium chronographs, refined automatic tourbillons and sublime guilloché decoration. Parmigiani is one of the few remaining independent watch manufacturers and offers exceptional timepieces made using only the finest of materials.
