In 2016, in celebration of their 20th anniversary, Parmigiani Fleurier joined a small but prestigious group of manufactures with the introduction of the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire, featuring the Maison’s first-ever in-house integrated chronograph- the PF361 caliber. Only seven brands in the watchmaking world have the expertise necessary to develop, manufacture and meticulously assemble such an intricate caliber, and today, Parmigiani Fleurier is proud to announce the third such feat in its 23-year history for the highly anticipated Watches & Wonders Shanghai show.
Following the successful launch of the Tonda GT collection earlier this Summer, it should come as no surprise that Parmigiani Fleurier would seek to again surprise with the introduction of a new model that further cements their indelible mark in the watchmaking world.
The Tondagraph GT Rose Gold Blue features a polished and satin-finished bracelet and a 42 mm case, both made in 18-ct solid rose gold. The fluted bezel is inspired by Michel Parmigiani’s first watch model -the Toric collection-, while the case’s foundation comes from the award-winning Tonda Chronor Anniversaire watch, for which the Manufacture received the Chronograph Watch Prize from the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2017. The similarities of both models go beyond the aesthetics. This timepiece houses the new PF071 movement, a COSC certified, automatic integrated chronograph with large date, based on the foundation of the original PF361 and featuring several impressive elements.
