I expected to debut the Parmigiani Minute Rattrapante here 2 weeks ago

Feb 10, 2024,21:56 PM

But thanks to FedEx, and the box being stolen from the outbound terminal on the East Coast, the waiting game continues.  It was the very first piece sent to the United States so far.  If you see it listed somewhere, proceed very carefully.

Once the replacement arrives, we can have some conversations.  I feel the watch has been highly overlooked, despite offering a very useful and clever complication.

It will be my first PF watch.

I ticks all the MC boxes, and I expressed my interest the moment I saw it.

And not the last one!

 By: amanico : February 10th, 2024-22:11

I fully expect it will be the start of a new brand for me.

 By: MichaelC : February 10th, 2024-22:13
In many ways, they excite me like UN did from 2003-2012 +/-. Intuitive innovation, I see a lot of that from Parmigiani lately.

The GMT is another good one, too.

 By: amanico : February 10th, 2024-22:15

PS: GMT Rattrapante!

 By: amanico : February 10th, 2024-22:15

Indeed. I don't use GMTs, so the timer function is much better for me.

 By: MichaelC : February 10th, 2024-22:31
And the "sand" colored dial, I adore it!

I understand.

 By: amanico : February 10th, 2024-22:36

Yes indeed!

I debated between the two and finally landed on the GMT. ...  

For sure.

Yes Sir, that is a beauty! I struggle with the date window on many PF watches

 By: MichaelC : February 11th, 2024-18:05
The GMT & Minute Rattrapante fully solve that issue!


 By: kkochheiser : February 11th, 2024-20:47

In total agreement, here.

 By: amanico : February 11th, 2024-21:10

It was stolen from a Fedex site (while still being processed by them)? Wow.

 By: ArmisT : February 10th, 2024-22:22
Looking forward to you receiving yours as PF has been making quite an impression.

Yes. It is an inside job. Multiple packages stolen in the same terminal in the past 2 months from the same sender.

 By: MichaelC : February 10th, 2024-22:35
Scanned at the terminal 90 minutes after pickup at the store, and then gone baby gone. The value lost is over 200k. Gotta catch this guy. I'm quite certain such a miserable human being with have 0 idea on what the Minute Rattrapante is or what it does.

Ay yi yi!

 By: patrick_y : February 10th, 2024-22:55

They must have it on camera....

 By: InHavenPro : February 10th, 2024-23:02

Obviously not to catch the guy yet

 By: MichaelC : February 11th, 2024-18:07
But this is not hard. They need to send through some dumby shipments with electronic tracking devices. Of course, this is the United States 2024. If they catch the guy who has now stolen over $200,000 in goods, would he even serve any time? Doubtful.

🤣Sad, but true.

I tip my cap to you sir…

 By: myles721 : February 11th, 2024-03:02
a grail watch for sure…and I love the two tone crown!!! 🎩🎩🎩

Thank you dear Friend.

 By: MichaelC : February 11th, 2024-18:10
I have been very patient for this one. It was initially end of September, then October... and finally, just ahead of Parmigiani's new price increase on 2/1/24. But I think it will be most worth the wait. This brand builds a great timepiece.


 By: sschew : February 11th, 2024-03:51
That's a very nice watch

Yeah -I’m struggling with FedEx in Hawaii

 By: mjcruiser42 : February 11th, 2024-04:12
Watch has been here since last Saturday- can’t get it delivered No flexibility - in the eighties used them all the time -held stuff -moved stuff around -now you’re talking to a machine! Oooh -sounding like an old guy -Witch I am. Also -nice piece -congrat... 

Well, hopefully yours is just waiting to be delivered.

 By: MichaelC : February 11th, 2024-18:12
This one was completely stolen. Such a rare watch at this point, figures it is this instead of something more available.

Very good video with Guido Terreni, CEO of Parmigiani Fleurier.

 By: redbox : February 11th, 2024-15:05
on Youtube with Monochrome Watches.

I have seen it, and really enjoy Guido's commentary.

 By: MichaelC : February 11th, 2024-18:12
My kind of CEO (based on the interviews I have seen).

Thanks amigo. I feel mostly for PF and the store.

 By: MichaelC : February 12th, 2024-04:35
Insurance will make them whole, but this is going to be a low production piece, and it sucks to have the very first one in the US go missing.

Indeed so true!

A gigantic watch.

 By: MTR : February 12th, 2024-23:40
I am a big admirer of PF. Unfortunately I don't have any in my collection yet. The GMT Rattrapante would be my choice. At least a model without this date window that takes some getting used to. I hope you don't have to wait too long for the new delivery.

I have plotted a PF for some time now.

 By: MichaelC : February 13th, 2024-17:42
I'm sorry to say it, but a good number of their pieces have a deal breaker quality. Unnecessary dial text, a poor date placement, the background of a date disc color, etc. If not for these objections, I certainly would have already acquired one. This Minu... 

Great catch my friend ! Looking forward to seeing it strapped on your wrist 😉

 By: Mike H : February 13th, 2024-09:20
And yes fully agreed with all your comments about the evolution of PF, surely something to follow… You definitely made the right choice Michael it’s really a very cool and beautiful piece 👍

Thank you my Friend! I'm excited for it to arrive, especially since it really should have over 2 weeks ago.

 By: MichaelC : February 13th, 2024-17:45
As I just replied above to MTR, I have come very close to buying a Parmigiani, but could not get past 1 or 2 details on other models that really tempt me. This one is a very unique offering, IMO, and I look forward to having it.

I can easily understand my friend…

 By: Mike H : February 13th, 2024-19:20
…it looks stunning 🤩👍👌👌

A superb Parmigiani!

 By: mrds : February 18th, 2024-18:31
I hope your wait will soon be over. Shame to hear about the Fedex job. I hope they catch this guy soon! You can be sure to enjoy your Rattrappante double once you finally receive it 😁

Thanks Sir. It should be later this month.

 By: MichaelC : February 18th, 2024-19:14
The dealer has 2 sold behind me. Unfortunately, those buyers get bumped back too.
