Your one-minute primer to the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Questor Ripple.

Consider this a miniature Zen garden for the wrist. Inspired by the fastidiously raked ripples of a Japanese rock garden, its solid gold dial has been painstakingly hammered and engraved by hand to replicate the serene scene. One could also liken this to a visual representation of the sound waves of its minute repeater function. To ensure the optimal sound quality of its cathedral chimes, the manufacture spared no effort to tweak the manual-winding movement and the 18K white gold case so only the purest melodious sound is produced. A pièce unique, it is paired with an alligator leather strap by Hermès.
