Case Size:



The Tonda PF Micro-Rotor is the cornerstone of the modern Parmigiani Fleurier catalog. The case of the new Tonda PF measures 40mm, with a diminutive 7.8mm thickness. On the wrist, the steel version of the Tonda PF seems to vanish, feeling nearly weightless in steel. The case profile is distinctive and unmistakable thanks to its teardrop lugs which have been present in the Tonda range since its inception.

The curvature of the case compliments the wrist's natural shape and drapes like a well-made suit in a very ergonomic fashion. The bezel is a direct heritage to the Toric, while the teardrop lugs and case architecture borrows from the Tonda GT, released in 2019. This creation takes those same values and design codes and expresses them in a pure and minimal manner.

The dial bears the Grain d'Orge guilloché dial, an important finishing for the brand as it was used in the first Parmigiani Fleurier watch, the Toric Memory Time, a detail that allows for a homogeneous retelling of the first Michel Parmigiani creation.

The PF703 movement at the heart of the Tonda PF is the same ultra-thin micro rotor caliber found in former Tonda 1950 models, now with the addition of a date displaying at 6 o’clock. Though the watch is largely comprised of steel, the micro-rotor that powers the Tonda PF is made from the same 950 platinum as the bezel and wears the Grain d'Orge guilloché found on the dial. This rotor winds bi-directionally, allowing for an impressive 48 hours of running autonomy. The PF703 alleviates the fragility concern through INCABLOC shock absorption technology.

The PF703 is an impressive technical exercise but also boasts classical decoration in a way that compliments the understated nature of the watch as a whole. Perlage can be appreciated underneath the rotor and balance, while the bridges and main plate are layered with pelts of côtes de Genève. The bridges and jewel countersinks are all adorned with chamfered edges throughout. Although none of the elements that make up the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor are inherently new, it's worth highlighting the effort and respect for design codes that have been ever present in the Parmigiani Fleurier catalog. 

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 Parmigiani Fleurier brand is a watchmaking adventure that began with the art of restoration. Created in Fleurier in 1996 and guided by the passion of a man who remained faithful to the very essence of the watchmaker. Michel Parmigiani, master horologist, renowned restorer, and talented creator of mechanical automatons, dedicated his skill and knowledge to establishing his brand as a pillar of independent watchmaking.

The Sandoz Family Foundation, who had tasked a young Michel Parmigiani to restore its horological artifact collection, became interested in bringing Parmigiani's masterful work to the consumer market. In 1996, with the backing of the Sandoz Foundation, Parmigiani Fleurier was able to outfit its manufacturing workshops with the means to produce exceptionally high-quality components. In less than 10 years, it achieved near complete vertical integration. In order to justify such an infrastructure, Parmigiani and its subsidiaries produced components and movements for some of the most prestigious watch brands. In its current form, it is one of the most complete manufacturing workshops in Switzerland and captures the very essence of haute horology.

Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking center expands with the integration of Atokalpa, a manufacturer of trains, pinions, and microgears. By 2005, the company is able to industrially produce balance wheels and springs, pallet forks, and escapement wheels. Elwin, a leader in precision bar turning, joins the same year, supplying all the hardware for mechanical movements.

Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier is born

In January 2003, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier is created to furnish high-end movements for Parmigiani Fleurier watches at the highest level of technicality and finishing. Its research and development department is tasked with producing a vast range of complicated calibers.
