The quaint, Swiss town of Fleurier, which is now a part of the new Val-de-Travers region, is the cradle of Nobel laureates Charles Edouard Guillaume and Daniel Bovet, and the seat of the high-end watch designer and manufactory Parmigiani Fleurier. Inspired by the rich history of this small town, watchmaker Michel Parmigiani and the Sandoz Family Foundation built the brand with passion to restore the Swiss heritage of fine watch making. Undeterred by the challenges of the quartz movement, the determined heads and hands behind the now world-famous brand produced original in-house calibers with outstanding mechanisms that honor the traditions of good old Swiss watchmaking. The grand complications and the persistent success of the Toric watches, the Tonda, Kalpa and Bugatti watch models are tangible evidences of Switzerland’s unsurpassed heritage of haute horlogerie that remains vibrant under the name of Parmigiani Fleurier.
