The Parmigiani Fleurier has been founded on a strong conviction to restore the value of Swiss watchmaking as an art and heritage. This founding principle runs in the veins of every timepiece and chronograph produced by Parmigiani Fleurier, such as the Parmigiani Toric Tecnica Samba minute repeater with tourbillon. The 42mm timepiece is inspired by the colors and motions of Brazilian samba. The platinum case encloses a white gold dial with feather motif that is hand-engraved so meticulously to show the grain and texture of the details upon close inspection. Superluminova enhances the readability of the watch’s blued steel hands, while at the 6 o’clock aperture a high-end tourbillon is held aloft by its steel bridge. The hinged case back is decorated with the same motif in vibrant enamel and opens to reveal the fine Calibre PF351 movement that runs the whole show. Like an enchanting dance piece, the Toric Tecnica Samba skips with the beat in the most elegant fashion.
