Parmigiani Fleurier’s Kalparisma Watch | A Timeless Investment Piece

italian watch brand-3

It’s hard to believe that fall is finally here — it’s still pretty warm here in the desert but we had a massive rain and windstorm a couple weekends ago which resulted in a nasty flood. Luckily right before the storm hit, we were able to capture this whimsical transitional summer-to-fall look with the dramatic pre-storm clouds in the background!

Regardless of the season, a timeless watch is a must for me. I got the wonderful opportunity to style this classic white watch by Parmigiani Fleurier, and absolutely love that it goes with just about anything I choose to wear. This fall, I’m wearing this iconic beauty from Parmigiani Fleurier’s Kalpa collection with a lot of pastels and neutral colors in my wardrobe.

Launched in 2009, the Kalparisma is the first Parmigiani Fleurier collection of mechanical watches made for the elegant woman. It features the classic tonneau-shaped case, which is a fundamental element of the brand’s visual identity. I am a sucker for feminine pieces that stay in style for years, and this investment piece is no exception! I can definitely see myself wearing it during my lifetime, with both casual and formal styles depending on the occasion.

This timepiece features automatic movement, a white mother-of-pearl dial with rose gold plated appliques, and an 18 carat rose gold casing. The precious mother-of-pearl illuminates the piece with soft reflections. Depending on the angle, the play of light created elicits a mesmerizing depth. The white calf leather band is HermΓ©s, and the ardillon buckle accommodates a plethora of wrist sizes including those with tiny wrists who usually struggle to find watches that fit!

The Kalpa collection offers a plethora of classic styles for both men and women. As the holiday season approaches, I can depend on this investment piece to seamlessly take me from day to night regardless of the occasion. A Parmigiani Fleurier timepiece makes the perfect gift for that someone special in your life too! πŸ˜‰

What would you wear this Kalparisma beauty with this fall?

  1. AHHH that watch is such a beauty! I love how you wore it with a classic white bag too! Everything about this look is just beautiful, Sharon. I may just have to splurge on a Parmigiani Fleurier watch for myself this Christmas… which is now less than 100 days away! πŸ˜‰

  2. What a beautiful watch. Timeless. And I love your lace dress – it is stunning on you with your classic Chanel bag. Love love all.


  3. I love the simple yet unique design of this watch! I actually don’t own any square-shaped watches and I really like this one πŸ™‚ I love it styled with this romantic lace dress and matching white bag <3

  4. What a stunning classic time piece! I love how gorgeous it looks on your tanned skin but I can see how it’ll transition well into the colder months as well! You styled it perfectly with that gorgeous dress!

  5. I love investing in great time pieces and this one is such a keeper and beauty!! Love the design because is very classic and the color too because it can match with everything! Love that lace dress.


    1. Thank you Marcy! I am the same way — I’ll invest in time pieces that are keepers. This one is just that! I love that it goes beautifully with everything and can be dressed up or down depending on my mood or occasion.

  6. What a gorgeous watch! I’ve been so attracted to white accessories lately so your watch is right up my alley! πŸ™‚ It’s such a chic and timeless piece, I’m sure it will look on point for years to come.

    1. Haha I love white accessories too! Really helps to make an outfit pop… but I just get paranoid about getting them dirty sometimes lol. No issues with this watch so far though!

    1. It is quite difficult — you’re right! I only have one other rectangular shaped one and it’s an ancient Burberry one I got years ago at a Nordstrom Rack lol

  7. That watch really is stunning! And it looks beautiful on you. The older I get, the more I really want a classic watch as an investment piece!

  8. I would definitely rock this watch! It’s such a classy piece that works with dressy looks such as the dress you’re wearing and you can also dress it down! I’ve never heard of Kalparisma before, but I’ll sure be checking them out now!

  9. I am so obsessed with watches. I even have a box to hold them all! This watch is definitely one I need to add to my collection!

    1. Oh wow babe! You must have a lot! I really love this one so I will probably add more white watches to my collection. I have another one by Michael Kors that I love too lying around somewhere…

  10. You always seem to find the greatest pieces. I don’t know if I would have noticed that watch if I were just out and about — mainly because I tend to be so focused on one thing and can be pretty oblivious lol — but I love how you showcase this watch. It such a classic piece and looks so great with your dress. Ok, that aside you have to tell me where you find such picturesque places to take your photos!

    1. Aww thanks Danielle! Like 99% of my photos are shot in the Palm Springs area now that I live here! But before that I shot often in LA too and sometimes if it’s a city look I’ll go to downtown LA to shoot πŸ™‚ if you’re ever in the desert let me know! I’ll show ya around haha x
