Parmigiani Toric Chronomètre, Brilliantly Made-Sparsely Sold

Postby Racer-X » June 29th 2017, 6:38pm

by Su Jia Xian (SJX) "Parmigiani Fleurier builds beautifully crafted watches, but doesn’t sell very many of them, for myriad reasons that include branding, marketing, and design. Owned by a charity endowed by a drug making dynasty, which also owns a raft of watch component manufacturers, Parmigiani has been in the red for years but still does what it does, and still does it admirably well. The recently launched Toric Chronometre encapsulates that paradox."

I'd guess that it doesn't sell well because the numbers are ghey, the hands are ghey, the knurling of the case is ghey, the crown is ghey, the date window is ghey, the word "chronometer" is spelled wrong and too big and ghey, and it costs too much.

Makes certain things larger. Not ghey.

I don't really care for the hand set but the rest is okay.
