HISTORY

Everywhere the eye lands on a Tonda PF, there’s a particular texture, form, and detail to be seen and enjoyed. This is not ornament, ostentation, or opulence. This is a mature, sartorial approach to watchmaking, where cloth is replaced by metal and weaving by dial pattern. The cutting and fitting of the shoulders and waistline take on the form of case and bracelet. Like in a Neapolitan or Sicilian workshop, these are entirely focused on silhouette, fluidity, proportions, and taste. Like any jacket that originates in those institutions of male elegance, the Tonda PF is tailored to withstand the passing of time and trends, and remain.

Its specific hands are made of solid gold. Slim and long, they’re almost entirely open-worked and of a completely new design. The bezel, a direct heritage from the Tonda collection, features a sleek, polished part and another that’s been knurled by hand and is crafted out of solid platinum 950 for the steel models. Rather than using the same steel as the rest of the case and bracelet, Parmigiani Fleurier has elected to work with this highly precious metal. Not for the sake of exclusivity, but because it provides a better, shinier play with light and a more artisanal feeling once polished by hand.

The Tonda PF is an entirely new collection of timepieces within the Tonda family of watches, featuring Parmigiani Fleurier’s most distinctive complications from the outset. This includes the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor, a slim, pared-down, high-end two-hander with a platinum micro-rotor. The Tonda PF line borrows design elements from Parmigiani's history including the distinctive coined edge bezel which can be seen in the earliest examples of the Toric from 1996.

THE BRAND

A self-taught watchmaker, Parmigiani was born into a family of woodworkers and restorers in the small town of Val-de-Travers, Switzerland. In 1976, at the age of 25, he opened his own workshop, "Mesure et Art du Temps," in Fleurier, Switzerland, where he began restoring antique pocket watches.

By 1980, Michel's reputation as an excellent watch restorer was growing, leading him to his successive career step. He encountered the Landolt family, who owned the Maurice-Yves Sandoz Collection. Michel was tasked with restoring their horological collection of timepieces and automatons.

After 16 years as the custodian and restorer for the Sandoz Collection, the foundation guided Michel to the creation of Parmigiani Fleurier in 1996. Today, Parmigiani Fleurier is recognized as one of the world's most vertically integrated independent watchmakers.

A focus on fluidity, proportions and taste

The cutting and fitting of the shoulders and waistline take on the form of case and bracelet. Like in a Neapolitan or Sicilian workshop, these are entirely focused on silhouette, fluidity, proportions and taste. Like any jacket that originates in those institutions of male elegance, the Tonda PF is tailored to withstand the passing of time and trends, and remain.

Finest degree of finitions and a new signature

The indices of each timepiece are set across two levels of the dial, while the Grain d’Orge guilloché dial pattern is the finest imaginable. Any smaller and it would have become invisible. Any larger, it would have become obvious, therefore defeating the purpose of this line: imperceptible refinement, entire dedication to exclusivity, modern permanence.The PF logo appears at 12 o’clock, nestled in a vertical, oval, double-edged appliqué with extensive finishings, a harbinger of the level of care put into the collection.

One collection, endless possibilities

The Tonda PF is an entirely new collection of timepieces within the Tonda family, featuring Parmigiani Fleurier’s most distinctive complications from the outset.
