What a Parmigiani Fleurier Watch Says About YouBack to News & Exhibitions
It’s true that you can tell a lot about a person by what they wear. It’s especially true for timepieces. Though, today’s workplace can be more casual than it was in the past, people rarely notice a decent, introductory-level luxury watch—not when there’s smartphones in everyone’s hand and smartwatches on nearly everyone’s wrist. Also, many people who value a good, luxury watch tend to be mindful of which watch to wear around whom.
Still, in traditional workplaces, people still believe that a watch is a reflection of a person’s social and economic status. Outside of traditional workplaces, it your watch says more about your style than your place of hierarchy.
Parmigiani Fleurier Timepieces are Pieces of Art
Parmigiani Fleurier watches are essentially artisan timepieces—tiny monuments of appreciation for craftsmanship worn on the wrist. People who wear Parmigiani Fleurier timepieces are not looking to buy the next trendy watch. They are not looking to be flashy. Though Parmigiani Fleurier watches are definitely conversation pieces, they don’t excite the same reaction as a grandiose luxury watches that grace the shiny pages of fashion magazines. They are eye-catching, but not gaudy.
Because of their minimalistic, classy designs, Parmigiani Fleurier watches exude a quiet and understated elegance favored by the elite like Prince Charles and Dubai entrepreneur Omar Hussein.
When you think about it, people who enjoy luxury watches are similar to those who enjoy luxury cars. And we can separate people who love luxury cars into two categories: people who love the flash and people who love the craftsmanship. It’s the same for watches.
Think about it. Once you remove the branding from a watch, what are you left with? What should remain? Some luxury watches are popular and can fetch a pretty penny because of exceptional marketing and not their design. Parmigiani watches come from the love of beautiful watchmaking design and functionality.

You can tell from Parmigiani’s designs that his inspiration comes from ancient history, antiquity, and even music.
For the 2018 Montreux Jazz Festival, Michel Parmigiani designed something a bit different: limited edition “rectangular-faced musically inspired design in both male and female versions,” saying “Music is like watchmaking: it exists whenever a tempo is set – it becomes sublime only when we devote our heart and soul to it.”
