Parmigiani Unveils An Ultra-Thin 9.45mm 18-CT Gold Tourbillon Auto Watch

Michel Parmigiani is one of the world’s most elite horological restoration experts, with an acclaimed and highly-awarded career in the industry stretching back to the 1970s. In 1996, Michel took his immense wealth of knowledge and experience and applied it to the creation of his own watch company, resulting in Parmigiani Fleurier. In the company’s short history, it’s earned numerous accolades, including receiving 2006 Watch Of The Year for a Bugatti driving watch, though PF has now unveiled what’s undoubtedly its most exclusive model yet with the Toric Tourbillon Slate.

Paired with an Hermès alligator strap, the Slate is powered by the boutique Swiss horological outfit’s Calibre PF517 automatic movement that calls on a 950 platinum micro-rotor, offers 30m of water resistance, and allows the watch to be wildly compact. Equipped with a sapphire lens and back to reveal the tourbillon’s elaborate inner-workings, the watch’s 42.8mm-wide polished 18-ct red gold case is remarkably thin, measuring only 9.45mm (or 0.372”) thick. Making this Tourbillon all the more elite is the fact that the lion’s share of the mechanical components were all precision-machined in-house by Parmigiani and his team. Currently available via online order, the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Tourbillon Slate Watch carries a price of $130,000.
