Lalique and Parmigiani Collaborate on Exclusive Clocks

The legendary French crystal maker Lalique has teamed up with the Fleurier, Switzerland–based watchmaker Parmigiani to produce a limited series of desk clocks ($98,000). Parmigiani, which began making its first series of these clocks last year, will produce about 8 to 10 pieces for Lalique per year, until the run of 45 clocks is complete. The movement features an indication of the 15-day power reserve directly on the winding barrel. The Lalique crystal decorating the sides of the case will be available in a selection of colors, and is worked into the company’s longstanding Coutard fountain motif. The collection will be unveiled to select Robb Report readers at events in New York and Los Angeles in May. (212.355.6550, www.lalique.com)
