Presented in 2009, accessible in various versions including very lively ones, the Parmigiani Fleurier Tondagraphe combines two well known at this point refined complications. First is a one-minute tourbillon. Second is a chronograph, executed in the customary way. PF is currently delivering another variety of the watch, in accordance with the brand’s late models and with an attention on style, because of a smooth slate-shaded guilloché dial and a pink gold case. Plainly, the Tondagraphe has never looked so great. We should take a nearer look.
Slate dark and rose gold is a combination that functions admirably for Parmigiani Fleurier. The brand has applied it to a few of its models of late, including its particular Toric watch or the Tonda Lune . It is presently the ideal opportunity for the Tondagraphe, with its complex Tourbillon and Chronograph development, to profit by the equivalent, exquisite tone scheme.
The eminent slate shading dial is wealthy in fine enumerating and stands apart with its guilloché grain-de-riz (dots of rice) design. The difference between the shade of the dial and the warm gold utilized for the case is striking. The one-minute tourbillon ticks at 6 o’clock under a brilliantly hand-cleaned connect. The barrel connect, noticeable a 12 o’clock, makes an even contrast and adds a specialized vibe. The showcase incorporates the hours, minutes with openwork delta-formed hands, a little seconds with a twofold sided hand, a chronograph with a 30-minute register and a sickle molded sign of the force hold at 12 o’clock.
Turning the watch over, the caseback is gotten by 8 screws and a sapphire gem offers an unrestricted perspective on the magnificent chronograph instrument. The exemplary design incorporates a section haggle grasp. As you have come to anticipate from Parmigiani Fleurier, the completing is first rate with inclined extensions, Geneva stripes and perlage. The hand-wound type PF354 works at 21,600 vibrations each hour with 65 hours of force hold. This profoundly complicated development is made of 298 components.
Like its archetypes, this new interpretation of the Tondagraphe comes in the mark Parmigiani Tonda case standing apart with its extended drop-molded hauls. The crown is flanked by two mushroom-type pushers. Introduced in shining cleaned 18k pink gold, the watch wears less than the 43mm measurement would propose because of the ergonomic, bended lugs.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Tondagraphe slate dial and pink gold is worn on a crocodile leather lash made by Hermès with a gold pin clasp. It is estimated at CHF 199,000. For more data, if it’s not too much trouble, visit www.parmigianifleurier.com
