True riches do not need to be revealed; they are precious because they are discreet. To mark its twentieth anniversary, the Parmigiani Fleurier manufacture is presenting a limited edition of 10 pieces christened Kalpa Hebdomadaire Anniversaire. This limited edition follows the unique piece bearing the same name which had inaugurated their exceptional defining feature: a solid gold movement within a steel case middle.
This treasure inside reflects the craftsman's vocation – a work philosophy dear to Michel Parmigiani. The craftsman's work is discreet, carried out in the shadows, but he is committed in his attention to every detail, even those hidden parts that the owner of the piece will never see. In his work, he strives to enhance the piece and achieve the heights of excellence, whether or not the result is visible, as he knows that its true value is intrinsic and not merely superficial. The Kalpa Hebdomadaire Anniversaire celebrates the craftsman's humble devotion and the special beauty of hidden treasures.
"A gold movement inside a steel case is like a precious item, jealously guarded in a safe. Like the impenetrable inner riches of a person or a well-hidden treasure. It’s a rare beauty only found by those who know where to look." Michel Parmigiani
