Platinum rules once again, in a version combining the precious metal with one of the supreme Haute Horlogerie complications: the Tourbillon. Following on from the 25-piece limited edition presented in 2022, this year's TONDA PF Tourbillon features a special characteristic: its platinum dial appears in a Milano blue shade that is a favourite with Parmigiani Fleurier. The choice of colours highlights the generous opening at 7 o'clock, providing a chance to admire the magic of the perpetual moving regulating organ.
This new interpretation remains true to the brand spirit, magnificently expressing the stylistic vision of the Maison and its approach distinguished by discreet yet strong added value. TONDA PF Tourbillon embodies perfect purity.
Concealed beneath the Milano blue dial, the calibre developed within the Watchmaking Centre – a flying tourbillon movement with automatic winding via a platinum micro-rotor – reveals some of its 207 components through the transparent case back. Designed, produced and assembled by the artisans of the Watchmaking Centre, this 32.6 mm-diameter Reference PF517 movement is accurate, lastingly reliable and finished to the highest fine watchmaking standards (bevelling, circular-graining, Côtes de Genève) and measures a mere 3.4 mm thick.
The TONDA PF Flying Tourbillon belongs to the exclusive circle of iconic timepieces, a stature accentuated by its finely knurled and polished platinum bezel.
