The new Tonda PF Flying Tourbillon is noble in both material and spirit, providing an undeniably authentic expression of the brand’s identity in its all-platinum interpretation with a sandblasted full platinum 950 case and dial. Concealed beneath the precious metal is the calibre PF517 developed within the watchmaking division, a flying tourbillon with automatic winding via a platinum micro-rotor.
The subtle overall effect is magnified by the light that highlights its monochromatic casing. It contributes to the design of an initiatory journey that guides the gaze to the organic movement of the watch, the circular dial opening that reveals the rotating flying tourbillon carriage. The front face of the timepiece displays essentials only, with no trace of anything superfluous.
Clad in its platinum armour and secured to the wrist by a minimalist platinum bracelet, this ideally proportioned 42 mm diameter watch is fitted with a screwed-in crown guaranteeing water-resistance to 100 metres. Its sapphire crystal case-back reveals some of the 207 parts composing its mechanical self-winding calibre.
Designed, produced and assembled by the artisans of the Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking division, this 32 mm diameter PF517 movement – accurate, durable and finished to the highest Haute Horlogerie standards (bevelling, circular graining and Côtes de Genève) – gives life to a timepiece that is accomplished in every respect.
Elegant and sleek at just 8.6 mm thick, the Tonda PF Flying Tourbillon reflects the spirit of the Maison’s 25th anniversary as a full platinum limited edition following suit to the Tonda PF Split-Seconds Chronograph launched in September 2021. Its status within the select circle of iconic timepieces is accentuated by its immediately identifiable finely knurled and polished platinum bezel.
A signature in the form of a rare, discreet and powerful expression of luxury for this exclusive creation, which is issued in a 25-piece limited edition.
