Parmigiani Fleurier and Pershing Announce New Luxury Aquatic Sport Watches

Posted on 12. Jan, 2009 by in Shopping, Watches, Yachts & Boats



The Pershing Parmigiani Fleurier - The result of a partnership between Italian luxury yacht company Pershing and Parmigiani Fleurier, a luxury Swiss watchmaker.

Luxury watch manufacturer Parmigiani Fleurier has joined forces with the prestigious Italian luxury yacht company Pershing to offer the first Pershing aquatic sport watches.  Together their new luxury watch line represents the core of what each company stands for – excellence, creative spirit, perfection, and the unique history behind both companies.

The Pershing collection comprises two different lines:

  1. The limited edition ‘one-one-five’, available in 18 carat rose gold and 950 Palladium is available in two dial versions, tan and silver, each of 115 pieces, incorporating the self-winding chronograph movement Calibre PF 190. It has been created in honour of the biggest and most prestigious Pershing vessel, measuring 115 feet which can be found engraved on the watch case-back.
  2. The second line is the Pershing Chronographs collection, available in steel with four dial variants, and is non-limited edition. The special form of the numerals on the dial is in the spirit of the Pershing logotype. The models incorporate all the style codes now connected to the brand, thus retaining a classic appearance. The emblematic curve of its loops, the ‘Delta’ shaped hands, the dial colours and decorations, the refinement of the finishes along with all the components of the chronograph movement. It comes in four dial versions: graphite, silver, blu metal and amaranth.

Michael Parmigiani, CEO of Parmigiani commented:

“The partnership sealed the promise of a unique history, marked by the aim of constant perfection of tried and tested know-how of the two sides. Both our companies over the course of several decades have succeeded in creating extraordinary industrial facilities, embodying the objects of our passion. Tilli Antonelli started boatbuilding at a very young age, while he sailed on a legend of the seas, il Moro di Venezia.

At almost the same time, on the other side of the Alps, I discovered a passion for the mechanics of time, inspired by the grand masters of Swiss watchmaking. Thus the meeting of our two worlds could only underline our will to perfect the real and achieve the exceptional through the creational of an innovative watch.”

The watch is available with a rubber strap or steel bracelet, and is water resistent up to 200 metres.

    Wow – I’m a bit partial to the darker Rose Gold one.

    both of these are beautiful examples of how watches should be designed. I fully approve.
