Throughout history, man has sought to control time, to predict and chart its flow, in order to better organize the rhythm of social, religious and agricultural life. The calendar, which is universal, allows us to identify dates that are inscribed like milestones in the flow of time. Parmigiani Fleurier has long been fascinated by this cultural phenomenon and presents the Tonda PFXiali Calendar, an extremely complex creation that follows up other special editions devoted to re-creating the Gregorian and Muslim Calendars and which is the third to have been developed by Parmigiani Fleurier in one of its unparalleled areas of expertise.
The calendar functions are among the most fascinating, mirroring civilizations and societies, receptacles of belief, and indefinable phenomena such as the movement of shadows, alternation of seasons, and the mysteries of the lunar cycle. Together, such phenomena play a vital role in human activity.
The Tonda PF line marries design elements from Parmigiani's history. Some of these elements include the teardrop-shaped lugs of the Kalpa, and the distinctive coined edge bezel, which can be seen in the earliest examples of the Toric Memory time, Michael Parmigiani's first wrist-watch from 1996.

Founded only 25 years ago, Parmigiani Fleurier is a young and notably independent brand that draws its expertise from the art of restoration. This unique combination is at the heart of its timepieces with a contemporary style for enthusiasts seeking to combine modernity and high technical competency. To adhere to its own principles and perfect each timepiece produced, the brand created its own watch collections where more than 30 in-house calibers have been developed. More recently, Parmigiani has found mainstream success through their Tonda GT and Tonda PF collections which have become notable contenders in the independent sports watch segment.
