Parmigiani Fleurier PERSHING 002 CHRONO

Check out the cute lil’ starfish sub-seconds indicator – oh, and check out the cute 45,500USD price-tag!

The ocean is far from being an exclusively male domain and so for the ladies, Parmigiani Fleurier has dreamed up this sporty chic, sensual and feminine creation.

In an effort to do its part for the #metoo movement, OceanicTime will be posting an equal and proportional balance of ladies and gents divers, here’s one to kick things off with.



Born from a meeting between the eponymous superyacht builder, Pershing and high-end wristwatch Parmigiani Fleurier, the Pershing collection’s newest member is –

the Pershing chronograph 002 a watch that was designed for use in a marine environments. Its unidirectional rotational bezel measures immersion time, its hands are coated in luminescent material, and it is water resistance down to 100 meters.

The tachymetric measurement indication, based on 3 meters, makes it an ideal on-board instrument.



Being a ladies diver, it has of course been given a famine touch. Its dials are adorned with mother-of-pearl and painted at the back in azure while its sub-second is represented by a cheeky starfish AKA asterid, which marks the time that passes from his five arms.

The counterweight of the second hand is in the shape of an octopus.



Powering the watch is the Caliber PF334, an automatic chronograph movement, finished with bridges angled by hand and “Côtes de Genève” decoration. Its two series-coupled barrels ensure 55 hours of power-reserve.

Its pendulum beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Comprised of more than 300 components, this caliber allows for the display of hours, minutes, seconds and the date, together with its chronograph features with a large second in the center as well as hour and minute counters.
