After the introduction of the Tonda PF last year, Parmigiani Fleurier unveiled a more sophisticated high-flying novelty. The Tonda PF Skeleton completely reimagines the nature of the subdued Tonda PF collection. The artistically openworked dial reveals the intricate PF777 calibre in stunning satin-finished graphite, which beats at a frequency of 4 Hz with a 60-hour power reserve. The black rubies adorned on the rear of the movement, demonstrate Parmigiani Fleurier’s commitment to subdued minimalism. The Tonda PF Skeleton is available in 18ct rose gold and steel/platinum.
The oscillating weight visible through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback is crafted in 22ct rose gold to blend in with the airy structure comprised of 187 components. The oscillations induced by the wearer’s movements help wind the barrel, which is also openworked and shows the constant contracting and relaxing of the mainspring driving its balance at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
The watch’s knurled and polished bezel beautifully catches the light and the teardrop-shaped lugs extend the case and the uncrowded dial is accentuated by the Grain d’Orge guilloché pattern. The 40 mm diameter watch features the graphite-colored openworked dial with alternating sandblasted and satin-brushed surfaces and suspended hour markers. The two openworked hands glide over the large dial opening, which has only a chapter ring to facilitate the reading of the time. The gold delta-shaped hands are skeletonized, as are the hand-applied rose gold indices that are positioned on the peripheral chapter ring.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Skeleton in rose gold (ref. PFC912-2020001-200182) is available for CHF 88,000 ($97,400), while the stainless steel version (ref. PFC912-1020001-100182) retails for CHF 59,000 ($65,300).
