Parmigiani Fleurier Unveils Pershing Zero-Zero-Two Chronograph

Feb 06, 2009
In 2009, Parmigiani Fleurier is launching a new line of exclusive chronographs to pay tribute to the exclusive partnership with Pershing, the most prestigious yacht builder from Italy.

The Parmigiani Fleurier-Pershing partnership was born in February 2008. The same year Pershing introduced its first sporty watch collection highlighted by the Pershing limited edition "one-one-five" chronograph, and the Pershing "zero-zero-five." The watches, created as fine reflection of the lust for excellence and expertise in manufacturing know-how, have been highly appreciated by watch connoisseurs.

The new Pershing "zero-zero-two" chronograph watch, created in a few variations, is aimed at both men and women fond of exquisite craftsmanship and technical perfection.

The case of the watch measures 42 mm in diameter. It is characterized by remarkably balanced lines. It is crafted from stainless steel, 18K white gold or rose gold. The steel case features push-pieces produced from white or black rubber, matching the color of the strap, while the gold case has push-pieces produced from a precious metal. The case construction is fitted with anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a case-back engraved with a Pershing boat.

The timepiece will be a great choice for divers as it incorporates a unidirectional rotating bezel, 3-metre base tachometric measurement indicator and is 100-meter water-resistant.

The Pershing watch showcases a graphite, amaranth or silver dial. The chronograph function is presented via a central seconds hand, and a 30-minute counter and a 12-hour counter that are slightly overlapping. The watch also features the small seconds sub-dial at 3 oclock and a large date display window at 6 oclock. The dial is completed with rhodium-plated applique indexes and delta-shaped hands with luminous coating.
The timepiece is equipped with the Calibre Parmigiani PF 334 in-house automatic movement.

The Parmigiani Fleurier watch is secured to the wrist on a stylish stainless steel bracelet with satin-finished central links or a natural rubber strap.

The Pershing "zero-zero-two" chronograph watch has also been created in an extremely feminine variation. The blue mother-of-pearl dial of the ladys watch reflects the beauty of the ocean depths. The end of the chronograph hand demonstrates a small stylized octopus. For displaying the small seconds, the watch shows off a starfish turning to mark the seconds. The bezel of the watch is paved with precious diamonds and sapphire baguettes.

The highly feminine variation of the timepiece embraces the wrist with is a white Hermes Epsom calfskin strap, featuring blue stitching.
