Parmigiani Fleurier - Do Small, Think Big
Slightly reduced in size, retaining the emblematic wide dial opening, and hosting a new in-house automatic movement, the Tonda PF Automatic 36mm is the brand’s affirmative response to the many requests for a version of this timepiece in a format adapted to a slenderer wrist. It also speaks to the growing demand for smaller sizes and the “vintage” flavour they evoke.
The Tonda PF Automatic is the purest embodiment of the brand’s spirit. Its assertive identity is expressed through complimentary values of design discretion, a wide dial opening, subtle chromatic variations, and uncompromising finishes. All these values persist in the new Tonda PF Automatic, reinvented today with a diameter of 36mm.
The latest generation of the Tonda PF Automatic proudly upholds the stylistic codes that Parmigiani Fleurier so deftly established for its predecessor: fluid and harmonious integration of the case and bracelet in 18ct rose gold or steel, knurled bezel, and finely guilloché minimalist dials with baguette-cut diamond hour markers set invisibly. Three new colour variations debut to mark the transition to this new format: Silver Sand and Warm Grey for the steel versions with a platinum bezel and Deep Ruby for the full 18-ct rose-gold version- sobriety, discreet elegance in line with the chromatic palette favoured by Parmigiani Fleurier.
The three new Tonda PF Automatics beat to the rhythm of Calibre PF770. In accordance with the standards enforced at Parmigiani Fleurier, this new movement, developed to fit into the new 36mm case and endowed with a 60-hour power reserve, meets the highest finishing requirements, including bevelled steel and decorated surfaces. The 22ct rose gold, skeletonized oscillating weight is adorned with the PF logo, floating in the centre of a sapphire plate.
Far beyond offering a simple reduction in diameter, the Tonda PF Automatic 36mm broadens the scope of the collection while remaining perfectly in harmony with its DNA, which transcends the traditional categorization of timepiece genres.
