Parmigiani Fleurier Forma XL Hebdomadaire

My latest acquisition..

I've been admiring Parmigiani watches for some time due to their exquisite finishing.. Finally able to add one to my collection and I have to say it's the most beautifully crafted watch I've ever owned..  The Parmigiani caliber PF110 is an 8 days movement manufacture in-house by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier, the manufacturing arm of Parmigiani Fleurier, which also helped developed the well regarded Chopard LUC movement.. The movement is finished beautifully with plenty of interior anglage (see last picture) which is rarely seen from other haute horlogerie brands today..

One of the best bargain in high-end watch from the most respected name in the industry.  The caliber 849 use in Master Ultra Thin is considered as a workhorse among ultra thin (under 2mm thickness) calibers.  In fact, this ultra thin caliber is so demanding that assembling is done in the Watchmaking Specialties Workshop of JLC, together with their grand complication pieces such as the minute repeater.

Some excellent review of this watch:

I believe it is fair to say that this is the finest ultra-thin wristwatch ever produced. But I would also venture that this is among the very finest watches in contemporary production, regardless of complexity. The Master Ultra Thin is probably a watch that, among Swiss manufacturers, could only have been produced by Jaeger LeCoultre. There are, in all of Switzerland, no others with the design and manufacturing skills to conceive and execute this watch with such unrelenting attention to quality. For all its simplicity of appearance, the Ultra Thin is a true masterpiece equaled by only a tiny handful of other wristwatches.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultrathin represents a remarkable bargain in the modern mechanical watch market. It is classic yet modern looking and incredibly robust for an ultrathin watch while exhibiting the quality of old-world craft that cannot otherwise be had for several times its asking price.
