Parmigiani Fleurier has recently introduced two new Tonda models: The Tonda GT and the Tondagraph GT. The Maison has named the Tonda line after the Italian word “tondo” for round, and this traditional shape in watchmaking has a significant impact on the overall design of all timepieces in this collection. Also, in both new models, a sporty look meets elegance in a perfect symbiosis.
The Tonda GT is equipped with a pink gold case that combines its 42 mm with pleasently wearable ergonomics. With its water resistance of up to 10 bar, this watch is wonderfully suitable for everyday use.
The case ist not only beautiful, it also houses impressive inner values. The in-house calibre PF044 operates at a frequency of 4 Hz and provides a fairly comfortable power reserve of at least 48 hours. The sapphire crystal case back allows an in-depth look into the movement and on the tirelessly working rotor.
The Tonda GT features a guilloché dial with applied gold indices. Like the hands, these are equipped with black Super-LumiNova to guarantee perfect readability – always. The latter is also ensured by the application of an anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal. At this point, we also want to mention the striking double window of the big date.
The Tondagraph GT offers an extremely comfortable annual calendar that only requires a hands-on correction by its wearer one time per year; at the end of February, that is. In addition to the annual calendar, Parmigiani Fleurier has packed a chronograph into this watch, which includes a 30-minute counter and a 12-hour counter.
The guilloché dial comes with apllied baton markers, and the hour and minute hands are equipped with a luminous coating so readability is ensured even under critical lighting conditions.
The Tondagraph GT is powere by the calibre VMF3012. This automatic movement is also lavishly finished and it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. It provides a power reserve of approximately 48 hours.
The movement is housed in a 42 mm stainless steel case which is water-resistant up to 10 atm and completed by a stainless steel bracelet or a rubber strap.
