Parmigiani Fleurier is one of the maison that surprised us most among the novelties of Watches & Wonders 2022. The touch of Parmigiani, his obsession with the golden section and elegance, is also evident in this new chapter in the history of the maison.
Round PF GMT Rattrapante
Parmigiani enriches its Tonda PF collection with the new GMT Rattrappante by adding a complication while preserving the minimalist character of the Tonda PF line, adapting an innovative and easy-to-use solution.
The elegant and sober lines that distinguish each element of the Tonda PF watches could not be disturbed by disturbing elements such as a pulsamte or one hand too many. This is how Parmigiani decided to create a Rattrappante GMT, let's see what it is.
This complication features two superimposed hour hands: one in rhodium-plated gold and the other in rose gold. By pressing the button at 8 o'clock, the gold rhodium-plated top hand dedicated to the local time jumps forward one hour, thus revealing the rose gold hand that displays the time at the wearer's place of residence, known as the "now home".
When the second time zone information is no longer needed, pressing the rose gold push button integrated into the crown repositions the rhodium-plated hand over the rose gold hand in the same way as a split-seconds chronograph hand.
Round PF Skeleton
The new Tonda Pf Skeleton in 18 kt rose gold and steel / platinum also maintain the purity and sobriety of the collection despite the minimalism deriving from the skeletonization of the dial. In keeping with watchmaking traditions, the dial has a contemporary approach.
The sober and quintessential architecture highlights the knurled and polished bezel that beautifully captures the light and the eye, as well as the flexible and sliding bracelet design. The Tonda PF Skeleton best combines tradition and technical refinement with the refined design that distinguishes Parmigiani's DNA.
Round PF Flying Tourbillon
The Tonda PF Flying Tourbillon plays on paradoxes, embodying a highly sophisticated complication combined with maximum simplicity and aesthetic refinement. With its pure lines, this creation transcends the stylistic vision of Parmigiani Fleurier and his approach pervaded by a discreet but strong added value.
The new model is noble in both material and spirit, providing an undeniably authentic expression of the brand's identity in its all-platinum interpretation with a sandblasted 950 platinum case and dial. Hidden under the precious metal is the PF517 caliber developed within the watchmaking division, a flying tourbillon self-winding via a platinum micro-rotor.
Tonda PF Flying Tourbillon is a limited edition of only 25 pieces.
The Tonda GT Chronograph is offered with functions and colors that give it a sporty character. For this edition of Watches & Wonders 2022 it comes in two versions: 18ct rose gold with chronograph and big date functions; and steel with chronograph functions and annual calendar. Just like in architecture, the golden ratio determines ideal proportions and requires watchmakers to constantly reinvent the volumes and positioning of the elements that make up a timepiece.
This is the condition that ensures that the creations remain as desirable over time as the first day of their appearance. Either way, the color choices for the chronograph counters in Quantum Gray or Grenade give them a discreet but very distinctive presence on the generous dial that offers exemplary balance in function display.
