Parmigiani Fleurier presents two new models joining the new “Tonda BF” collection: a two-tone watch in rose gold and steel, a first for the collection, and a rose gold model with a sapphire dial and an attractive crocodile strap. The two new models in the Tonda PF Automatic range come with a 36mm case for slim wrists, feature contrasting colors and precious materials, and are designed in keeping with the subtle and elegant simplicity inherent in the collection’s hallmark.
The synergy between gold and steel – for the first time in the Tonda BF collection
The quest for aesthetic purity is central to the creative process at Parmigiani Fleurier, and given the sophisticated and refined feel of the collection, the first Tonda BF automatic rose gold and steel watch in the collection posed a stylistic challenge in how to combine a contemporary two-tone. Look without compromising the collection’s inherent sobriety. The solution is to use precious metal to enhance some of the architectural features of the case and bracelet. For example, the signature Tonda BF collection has been redesigned in 18K rose gold, while the integrated flexible bracelet features rose gold links that highlight and enhance its profile.
Distinctive teardrop-shaped lugs mark the starting point of a streamlined, tapered bracelet. Polished stainless steel links at either end of the bracelet contrast with gold vertical links, which surround the horizontal central link, displaying a linear satin-brushed surface. The beauty of these gold links lies in their tapered ends as they reach the folding grip. Smoothly flowing rose gold links accentuate the delicate structure of the bracelet, as do the gold bands that flow from the fluted bezel.
An elegant touch of colour: rose gold and ruby
The Tonda BF 36mm watch in rose gold with a sapphire dial was a hit last year, with great acclaim, and won the Geneva Grand Prix d’Horlogerie, 2022 edition in the Women’s Watch category. Now, this elegant and simple watch has been re-imagined and designed in a rich ruby color with a beautiful crocodile leather strap to match the charming color of the dial. With nothing superfluous to obstruct the view, the elegant hand-crafted grain d’orge decoration on the dial and the delicate, luminous baguette-cut diamond hour markers create a striking allure.
Both watches underline the diversity of the Tonda BF collection. They are ideal companions for all women and men, from day to night, from work to leisure – they are models characterized by strength and simplicity, and they fully embody Parmigiani Fleurier’s approach to fine watchmaking.
