Best Of The Best 2006: Corrected Time

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2006

A conventional minute repeater/ perpetual calendar model—while an impressive technical achievement—can become a problematic collector’s item. If the hand-wound movement runs down, resetting the date usually requires a long and tedious ritual involving the use of tiny indented pushers. The platinum Parmigiani Toric Corrector, however, can be up to speed in a few quick steps. You can adjust all the calendar functions, including the moon phase display and retrograde date, with a single pusher positioned at 2 o’clock. Because Parmigiani has made the perpetual calendar more user-friendly, the Toric Corrector can spend more time on your wrist and less at your fingertips.
