When Parmigiani Fleurier dispatched the Tonda Metrographe (this variant) in 2014, it wasn’t all consuming, instant adoration. In spite of the fact that there was a ton to like about this new Parmigiani Chronograph – its particular yet exquisite case plan and the conventional generally speaking nature of Parmigiani – by one way or another I felt it was anything but a watch I’d prefer to wear… at any rate until the brand introduced an elegant facelift of the assortment at SIHH 2017, with overhauled dials. Little things can make a major difference. The Fleurier-based producer currently adds a blue dial and pink gold rendition to the Metrographe assortment that underscores its attractive features perfectly.
Featuring a blue-opaline completion, the pleasantly created three-register dial is along these lines as the models presented at SIHH 2017. The chronograph sub-counters include a flinqué example and structure a figure eight (a mark Parmigiani configuration) delimited by raised areas. The twofold sided little seconds hand at 3 o’clock is a pleasant touch. The short facetted rhodium-plated hour markers are matched with openworked hours and minutes hands. The huge date gap shows odd numbers just and is situated at 12 o’clock, on top of the brand’s oval logo. A snailed design at the outskirts of the dial adds to the general feeling of profundity while the tachymeter scale underscores the energetic yet exquisite touch.
With its 40mm measurement, the deviated 18k pink gold case highlights well proportioned lines and unmistakable tear-drop carries, practically giving the impression of a pad formed case with an entirely round opening for the dial. The crown sits in the middle of dynamic oval chronograph pushers. It is pleasantly cleaned for what it’s worth. The sapphire case back is gotten by four screws. Water-obstruction if of 30m.
Inside the Tonda Metrographe is Parmigiani’s programmed type PF315. 28mm in distance across, this measured chronograph works at 4Hz with a 42-hour power hold (on two barrels) when completely twisted. The equilibrium wheel highlights four change loads. The presentation caseback uncovers its refined completing the process of, including perlage, Geneva stripes emanating from the equilibrium haggle 22k gold rotor with a grains d’orge guilloché design and a PF logo in an oval crest.
