The PF354 watchmaking movement of the new Parmigiani Tondagraph Slate has been produced entirely in-house. It contains no fewer than 295 components and has a power reserve of 72 hours.
This new luxury watch from Parmigiani Fleurier, the Swiss brand of luxury watchmakers founded in 1996 in Fleurier, Switzerland, features a dial which forms part of the new line of timepieces from the luxury manufacture.
Tondagraph Tourbillon Slate’s dial has been designed with the utmost care and attention to showcase the tourbillon and the chronograph. Naturally, this watch features the aesthetic codes of the Tonda collection – an ode to roundness – as well as the teardrop-shaped lugs which are characteristic of the brand.
This exquisite rose gold timepiece, measuring 43 mm in diameter, features a magnificent slate-colour guilloché dial.
An opening at 6 o’clock showcases the ultra-sophisticated tourbillon, while a counter at 3 o’clock displays the minutes of the chronograph. The small seconds takes its place on the counter at 9 o’clock, while the power reserve is displayed at 12 o’clock. The appliques and the skeletonised delta-shaped hour and minute hands elegantly pick up the colour of the case, crown and push-pieces. Powered by the PF354 manually-wound mechanical calibre, this watch offers a power reserve of 65 hours. As is always the case with Parmigiani, the decoration of the movement took a great deal of work. The various finishes
can be admired through the sapphire crystal at the back of the timepiece. Paired with a Hermès Havana alligator strap with rose gold pin buckle, this watch is water-resistant to 10 metres.
PF354 movement’s value can be appreciated in the minute details of its decoration, and reflects the degree of excellence upheld by the Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking centre. The bevelling of the tourbillon bridge and the circular graining on the barrel are both visible. Each calibre bears the inimitable hallmark of originality conferred by the craftsman’s hand.
Parmigiani Fleurier also unveiled the new Tonda Métropolitaine 36mm watch.
Its aventurine dial evokes the twinkling of a clear night sky. Its bezel is set with IF (internally flawless) diamonds, reaching the level of excellence that every woman deserves.
To reflect the fact that every woman is unique, Parmigiani Fleurier unveiled a sumptuous new Tonda line, available in different versions to fulfil every desire. The manufacture’s watchmakers have struck a delicate balance between technical accomplishment and the finest jeweller’s art, offering exceptional variations enhanced with diamonds, aventurine, lace and mother-of-pearl. This rose gold jewel, available with a diameter of either 33 mm or 36 mm, is the perfect fit for every woman.
