The Parmigiani Fleurier has been awarded the Innovation Prize by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve, the ‘Oscars of watchmaking,’ for their first Hijri Perpetual Calendar wristwatch! The prize is awarded by the Jury on a discretionary basis to reward the best competing watch offering an innovative and unique vision of time measurement and for opening up new pathways for the art of watchmaking.
The Hijri Perpetual Calendar features a 44.5 mm platinum case, a slate dial, and a rotor in platinum. It shows the hours and minutes, and date in Arabic numerals, the name and length of the months in Arabic calligraphy, as well as the abundant and the common years. It also features a moon phase in an aventurine sky and a power reserve of up to 48 hours. As seen in all Parmigiani Fleurier timepieces, every single component of the movement, even the hidden parts, are decorated by in-house specialists.
“We would like to thank all the people who collaborated with us on this incredible project,” said Davide Traxler, CEO of Parmigiani Fleurier. “At Parmigiani Fleurier we stand strong in our belief in solidarity, in the power of community, in being inspired by the work of greats who have come before us, in inspiring future generations and sharing the gifts of watchmaking with industry colleagues and those around the globe who appreciate the artistry of our work. The international community of watch admirers and devotees is a motley of cultures and traditions; we celebrate this diversity in our own way with the Hijri Perpetual Calendar, and we hope that- as an industry and as citizens of the world- we will also embrace it in the people we choose to represent and lead us.” Parmigiani Fleurier.
