Looking back in history, ramparts would provide protection to those residing within the confines of a city or castle. Indeed, there have been many noblemen who have been grateful for the protection afforded by substantial castellated walls. The battlements of medieval castles appeared to majestically interface with the clouds above whilst keeping the inhabitants safe. Their strength has stood the test of time, with many historical structures attracting tourists who choose to admire their august appearance.

Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe White Gold Abyss

Angus Davies reviews the blue dialed Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe White Gold Abyss. A recent visit to the new Parmigiani Fleurier Boutique in Mayfair’s Mount Street provided welcome respite from the hubbub of life in England’s capital city. Within this quiet oasis several horological masterpieces evoke desirous thoughts. There is much beauty to be found on display at the Boutique. I am enjoying a blue period at the moment when it comes to timepieces. I lack a blue dialled timepiece in my own collection and find myself drawn to watches presented in this regal shade. The Kalpagraphe White Gold Abyss in store at the time of my visit beckoned me to its sinuous form and an episode of enchantment ensued.
