Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpa Hebdomadaire

Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpa Hebdomadaire

Most watch companies have a tendency to make round watches. Market research has shown they are the most popular and the sales figures back this up. However, in the esoteric domain of haute horlogerie, the desires of the mass market have less relevance. Indeed, this is a world far removed from the lives of ordinary people where the overriding considerations are aesthetic allure and technical virtue. It is these considerations which pervade Parmigiani Fleurier.

The dial

The dial resembles a sea of inky blackness. The central area of the dial, presented in sunken, circular form possesses a smooth surface and is described as opaline. Positioned below the fulcrum of the dial is a small seconds display, featuring a snailed motif.

The case

As stated earlier,The curving lines of the barrel-shaped case integrate with the light wonderfully. The articulated lugs sit atop the bezel and arc downwards, courtesy of their lachrymose profile. Perpendicular to the curving vertical flanks of the case are cambered bezel surfaces. The complexity of the case design differentiates this model from many other tonneau-shaped watches. The sapphire crystal arcs both laterally and lengthways, mimicking the contours of the adjacent bezel.

The movement

A Parmigiani Fleurier movement is always a pleasure to behold. The horological rectitude of each calibre is most impressive. The hand-wound PF110 movement upholds the brand’s enviable reputation.

Closing remarks

The legibility of the Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpa Hebdomadaire is excellent. The Delta-shaped hands and applied indices collaborate superbly, conferring meaning with clear tone. Beyond the practicality of the various indications, the Swiss company has enriched the dial with a myriad of eye-catching details. In particular, the ‘guilloché tresse’ is exquisite, enhancing the dial surface with a beautiful texture.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time 5524R – A Time For Reconciliation

Image result for Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time 5524R – A Time For Reconciliation

This new rose gold version of the 5524 is nothing more than a change of colours – for both the case and the dial – and the men’s version of a pair of watches introduced coincidentally at Baselworld 2018. Indeed, not only Patek has updated the men’s model but a ladies’ version has also been added to the collection, the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time 7234R Lady and its 37.5mm case – and indeed, it looks entirely equal with just different proportions, as reported by Rebecca in her review here. Two different sizes and a unique recipe for a highly desirable pair of watches. So, the question is: why this rather simple change of colours makes such a difference? answer a bit later in this article, after a look at the watch itself.

The watch Patek came with at Baselworld 2015 was quite classical – gothic applied numerals and antique pilot’s hands (that many compared to the Zenith Type 20 watches) – but when looking at Patek’s production, it was somehow radically different. So different that this watch became a hot topic of discussion. Back then, it was certainly a misunderstood creation. Yet, the watch had some arguments and, 3 years after its launch, many changed their minds – including me again – and the 5524 became an integral element of the collection (even with the inaugural white gold/blue dial combination).

Being a pilot’s watch doesn’t mean this Calatrava Pilot Travel Time 5524 isn’t a proper Patek either. It combines the attributes of both worlds in a desirable manner. The case, at least for a Patek, is large at 42mm and rather sporty in terms of shape and design. On the other hand, it was made of white gold and not of stainless steel. The dial showed large luminous numerals, yet they were extremely delicate in their execution. Also, the watch featured one of Patek’s signature display, the “Travel Time” indication as found on the Aquanaut for instance. Finally, the combination of a matte dark blue dial and a white gold case was sporty and in the vein of a pilot’s watch – and maybe, this is where it was too radical and not Patek enough.

Why are there no Stainless Steel Rolex watches Available?

Image result for rolex watch

Although the second message is similar, there is one big difference. The new Rolex GMT-Master II 126710BLRO is a brand new model that was recently introduced during the Baselworld show. It will take time before these watches land at the dealer. When you are a good customer of a Rolex dealer or have friends in high places, you might be able to source one at retail price. But otherwise, you either need to wait or pay an incredible premium to one of the (grey market) dealers who were able to get one.

A stainless steel Rolex is almost as common as a BMW 3-series. You can spot them everywhere basically. Submariners are a common sight wherever you go as well. So what happened? Why are these watches all of a sudden so rare? It’s not only the vintage and older models are rare and pricey, any current Submariner, GMT-Master or Daytona model in stainless steel is simply not available at a Rolex dealer.

When we asked Rolex about this during our meeting with them in Baselworld, they just acknowledged these watches are in high demand and that they were aware of the availability problem. For the Daytona, this has been the case since the 1990s. The same can always be said of any new model basically. When the Yachtmaster in steel and platinum came out in 1999, it was just not there for a long time. Sometimes, it is just a short period that there is no availability, like the Rolex Milgauss that was re-introduced in 2008. Prices went through the roof for this watch, but today it is a watch you can easily find. With ups and downs, the Rolex Submariner and GMT-Master models were available as well in stainless steel. Full gold or bi-color watches have not really been an issue. When I bought a new Rolex GMT-Master II 16710 in 2006, they were just in the windows everywhere for example.

THE ROLEX YACHT-MASTER 116621

Image result for THE ROLEX YACHT-MASTER 116621

The Rolex Yacht-Master wasn’t the most sought-after time piece and list was somewhere around €7000 Euro and pre-owned price far far less. Even under a Rolex Submariner in stainless steel, despite the use of platinum. I know that Rolex purists are not favoring the Yacht-Master, as it is a bit too round, too smooth and too blingy for a sports watch, but I loved it. Still do.

The Yacht-Master, introduced in 1992 (the version I had in 1999), actually had a long waiting-list at the start. I am not sure whether the new Rolex Yacht-Master 116621 will have one as well given it is a bi-color (Everose and stainless steel), but let’s have a look at it in detail before I make any assumptions here.

The biggest novelty for the Rolex Yacht-Master 116621 is the use of Everose gold in combination with 904L stainless steel. Rolex calls this combination of materials ‘Rolesor’. The uni-directional diving scale bezel is made of Everose gold as well as the solid center links of the Oyster bracelet on this watch. The previous bi-color Rolex Yacht-Master was reference 16623 (introduced in 2005), and had a yellow gold bezel and center links. The first Yacht-Master reference from 1992, 16628, was full gold and had a gold crown as well. For some reason, Rolex chose the bi-color models, including the model I am talking about today, to have a stainless steel crown.

Strangely enough, bi-color Datejust, Submariner and GMT-Master models seem to have a gold crown. I suppose there is a reason for the Rolex Yacht-Master 116621 to not to have one, but to me it is unclear why this is the case. The strange thing is that Rolex defines Rolesor as follows: “the name Rolesor was patented by Rolex in 1933 and has become a true Rolex signature. The concept is simple: the bezel, the winding crown and the centre bracelet links are made of 18 ct yellow or Everose gold (Rolex’s exclusive pink gold alloy); the middle case and the outer links of the bracelet are made of 904L stainless steel.”. Rolex clearly calls the new Yacht-Master 116621 to be “Rolesor” as well on their website.

Everose is Rolex’ own formula for pink gold. According to Rolex, it is exceptionally durable, polishable (normally, pink gold becomes a bit yellow-ish again after too much polishing) and gives it an everlasting sheen.

The Rolex Yacht-Master 116621 does have gold colored hands and ‘Rolex’ printed on the dial in this gold color as well. The contrast with the chocolate colored dial is very easy on the eyes. The Yacht-Master wording remains to be printed in red. The chocolate brown dial has a sun-ray finish which looks awesome in natural light.I always loved the bezel of the Yacht-Master watches, and this Everose bezel with embossed diving scale is just awesome. Like all new Oyster bracelets, it can be resized very easily with the screwed links and adjust it up to 5mm with the Easylink system.

The Oyster bracelet remains to be one of the most comfortable bracelets I know, also the most copied one by other brands. Rolex bracelets (Oyster, Jubilee or President) seem to be ‘the reference’ for many people when talking about watch bracelets. Only few other watch brands know how to design and produce well-fitting and easy-to-adjust bracelets. Rolex is King for sure when it comes to bracelets. For now, the Oysterflex bracelet that Rolex showed us last year (click here) has not been shown for this 116621. Perhaps it will become available in the future as an optional bracelet.

THE ROLEX AIR KING REF. 114200

Along with the smooth bezel of the Air King ref. 114200, there’s also the ref. 114210 with the engine-turned bezel and the ref. 114234 with the white gold fluted bezel.Rolex Air-King ref 116900

The Rolex Air King models were eventually grobunded in 2014 to make way for the refreshed Rolex Oyster Perpetual models.Everything about the modern 6-digit Air-King reference 116900 screams “Rolex sports watch” unlike the classic references from decades ago. The Air-King, as many collectors may know it, was discontinued in 2014, with the newer 6-digit reference 116900 debuting shortly after in 2016. The differences between the old and new Air-King watches are obvious. The original Air-King featured a more modest 34mm Oyster case and a dial commonly set with simple applied indices and hands. While the newer reference boasts a larger 40mm Oyster case, a more secure folding Oysterlock clasp, and a dial topped with luminous hour markers and hands.

The case is still equipped with a screw-down crown that can withstand depths of up to 330 feet as well as higher altitudes. This newer reference, however, takes advantage of a Twinlock screw-down crown for extra waterproofness, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and 904L stainless steel. While the “Air-King” logo has been moved lower on the dial, avid Rolex collectors will be pleased that it is still present on the dial, just like the original Air-King.

A next-generation calibre 3131 perpetual movement beats within the case providing an accuracy of -2/+2 seconds a day. Newer Rolex movements often utilize Rolex’s patented shock-resistant technology via the addition of a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring. The movement also boasts a 48-hour power reserve and COSC rating.

The most notable change made to the new Rolex Air-King ref 116900 is the updated black dial. In lieu of the traditional index hour markers, the dial features polished steel Arabic markers at the 3, 6, and 9 positions and 5-minute graduations at the remaining hour markers. Similar to other Rolex sports references, a luminous triangle sits at the 12-hour marker. Chromalight lume emits a distinct blue glow and fills the 5-minute hour markers and hands for a clear reading in light or dark environments. A yellow crown and green accents including the Rolex logo and a green seconds hand, seal the new Air-King’s fate as a Rolex sports watch.
