The Tonda PF is the youngest watch family from Parmigiani Fleurier. Like all collections of this independent Swiss luxury watch manufacturer, it testifies to cutting-edge horological know-how and design expertise. For discerning enthusiasts, it offers some of the most sought-after classic complications of fine watchmaking with fascinating details.
These include chronographs, an haute-horlogerie model with a flying tourbillon, a practical annual calendar that only needs to be corrected once a year, and a a highly creative GMT watch that uses a rattrapante mechanism.
The artisanal flagship of the collection is a masterfully hand-skeletonized two-hand timepiece. The original debut model, the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor, also displays only the hours, minutes and date. It symbolizes the minimalist sophistication that the collection celebrates in every detail.
At this year’s Watches and Wonders, Parmigiani added a new iteration of the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor in 950 platinum to the collection, following the stainless-steel and rose gold executions released earlier. Water-resistant to 100 meters, the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor is entirely clad in this precious material, including the bracelet and dial.
It is driven by the ultra-thin self-winding caliber PF703, which measures only 3mm in height, thanks to the integration of a platinum micro-rotor. It goes without saying that it is elaborately finished and decorated to the highest quality standards.
With a diameter of 40mm, the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor measures only 7.8 mm on the wrist. The wide dial is made of sandblasted platinum and – reflecting the aesthetic spirit that guided its creation – entirely focused on the essentials. It features two skeletonized Delta-shaped hour and minute hands and a date indication. As is de rigeur for the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor, the watch face is framed by a knurled bezel, which is also made of platinum.
Pricing for the new Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Micro-Rotor is marked at CHF 85,000 (approximately $92,400).
