Parmigiani Fleurier revealed its latest offerings within the Tonda PF Automatic collection. Breaking free from the conventional norms that link watch genres to their diameter, the luxury watchmaker introduces a more compact 36mm case size of the Tonda PF Automatic proving that sophistication knows no bounds.
The Tonda PF Automatic 36mm retains the aesthetics and technical brilliance of its larger counterpart while embracing a more versatile size. Released in 2022, this unisex diameter caters to those with more slender wrists, a thoughtful departure from the one-size-fits-all approach. The reception was nothing short of enthusiastic, especially for the rose gold model with diamond indices, which clinched the prestigious Women’s Watch Prize at the 2022 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
Parmigiani Fleurier’s venture into the realm of two-tone aesthetics is marked by the introduction of a two-tone 18ct rose gold and steel model, a first for the Tonda PF collection. Adhering to the brand’s commitment to refinement and elegant minimalism, the challenge lay in integrating a contemporary two-tone look without compromising the collection’s innate discretion. The solution? Using precious metals to accentuate the architectural traits of the case and bracelet.
The craftsmanship of the Tonda PF Automatic 36mm is evident in the meticulous details. The finely knurled bezel, a signature of the collection, is recreated in 18ct rose gold, while the supple integrated bracelet features rose gold links that enhance its tapering profile. The teardrop lugs, distinctive to Parmigiani Fleurier, mark the starting point of the bracelet, culminating in a folding clasp where the golden links gracefully taper in size, resembling ribbons streaming from the bezel.
In a departure from its larger counterpart, the 36mm models forgo the date window, offering an unobstructed view of the exquisite Grain d’Orge hand-guilloché decoration on the dial. Baguette-cut diamond hour markers add a scintillating touch, commanding attention without unnecessary embellishments. The deep ruby color of the dial extends seamlessly to the ruby-colored alligator strap, creating a harmonious visual narrative.
The Tonda PF Automatic 36mm exemplifies versatility. Whether dressed in a dapper, contemporary two-tone suit or adorned with its warm and luxurious 18ct rose gold case and deep ruby dial, these timepieces effortlessly transition from day to night. The Tonda PF Automatic Deep Ruby is priced at $40,400 USD, while the Tonda PF Automatic Steel Gold Sand is available at $26,200 USD.
