Parmigiani Kalpa Hebdomadaire

The Parmigiani Kalpa XL Hebdomadaire. Hebdomadaire mean "Weekly" in French hence the 8 days of power reserve this watch comes with. My first tonneau case watch.

Oddly enough, the blue Guilloché dial got me sold!

What I really like about this watch is the level of finishing. The Delta-shaped hands are polished steel and the indices are rhodium-plated appliqués.

The bracelet comes with a satin finish and the sunray Guilloché dial is a beauty. The back of the movement comes with "Côtes de Genève" decoration and bridges are hand bevelled.

Beating within the steel case is the manual winding Calibre PF110. I understand that this is an in-house developed movement and almost every component is made in-house. The twin barrels gives the 8 days of power reserve. Comes with a folding clasp.

If I may say, the watch is pretty.
