Debuted at SIHH 2016, Parmigiani’s Kalpa Tourbillon Cyclone features the Caliber PF500.
The tourbillon, visible at the bottom of the dial, does two complete rotations every minute, where most tourbillons on the market complete one.
The actual dial is made from mother-of-pearl and is colored blue. The fragments darken the farther from the center of the watch and create a mosaic pattern depicting the shape of a cyclone. The watch is placed on a blue storm Hermès alligator strap. The platinum Tonneau-shaped case is set with 215 diamonds, which total 11.88 carats. Turning the watch over, the wearer can view the movement through a sapphire-caseback.
The movement’s functions include hours, minutes, one week power reserve indication and of course, the 30-second tourbillon.
