A quintessential watch only gets better when reconceptualised. The new Tonda PF models come with contemporary details in timeless designs.
The Swiss watchmakers Parmigiani Fleurier are wellknown for their restoration know-how and aesthetic cues from the worlds of science, art and architecture. One of their most famous creations is the Tonda PF collection, which is now introducing two new models.
The new watches are a two-tone rose gold and steel timepiece (a first for the collection) and a rose gold model with a ruby dial now coming with an alligator strap in the same shade. They play on contrasting colours and precious materials designed with the Tonda PF Automatic underlying spirit of refinement and elegant minimalism. Both are presented in a 36mm case for slimmer wrists.
GOLD ENCOUNTERS STEEL
The brand’s first Tonda PF Automatic in two-tone rose gold and steel posed a stylistic challenge: how to incorporate a contemporary two-tone look without jeopardising the innate discretion of this collection. The solution was to use the precious metal to enhance certain architectural traits of the case and bracelet. The finely knurled bezel of the Tonda PF is recreated in 18-carat rose gold, and the supple integrated bracelet features rose gold links that accentuate its profile.
POP OF COLOUR
The rose gold, ruby dial Tonda PF Automatic 36mm is a sleek, minimalist timepiece now reimagined with a beautiful, rich ruby alligator strap – reproducing the glamorous tone in the dial.
The Tonda PF Automatic, 36mm models mirror the aesthetics and technical mastery of the larger 40mm Tonda PF Micro-Rotor in a more compact case size. However, they are not equipped with a date window. With nothing superfluous to obstruct the view, the Grain d’Orge hand-guilloché decoration on the dial and the fine yet scintillating baguette-cut diamond hour markers command the attention.
The two timepieces underline the versatile nature of the Tonda PF collection. They are the perfect companion to enhance ladies’ and gents’ wrists from day to night, business to leisure – they are models that validate Parmigiani Fleurier’s approach to Haute Horlogerie.
