It’s almost time Watch time New York 2022, the exciting event made its seventh annual return to Gotham Hall in midtown Manhattan on October 21-23. Joined by industry experts and expert panelists, the event is a great opportunity for guests to get an insider experience with the year’s most coveted releases from over 30 participating brands.
Parmigiani Fleurier In an incredible line-up, its performance this year Thonda PF GMT Rattarapante It made its debut at Watches and Wonders this year. The watch is an expansion of the Tonda PF collection, which was originally released in August 2021, and like that release, the new model maintains the sophistication and refinement set by its predecessor. The design is adjacent to other GMT and Rattrapante models on the market, although it approaches complications with unexpected and subdued execution.
For the model’s exterior, Parmigiani chose Fleurier polished and satin-finished platinum, complete with a folded bezel at 3 o’clock and an 18-carat rose gold “back-home” pusher. The case measures 10.7mm in height by 40mm in diameter.
The fully “Milano Blue” dial is finished with a guilloche texture and decorated with applied, 18-carat gold rhodium-plated, geometric indices. Ticking above are two skeletonized hands indicating the local time and minutes in rhodium-plated 18-karat gold. Unlike many GMT designs, the dial eschews the date window or 24-hour hand, opting instead for an understated expression of complication via a single, secondary 12-hour counter.
At 8 o’clock is a pusher that, when pressed, jumps the hour hand forward in one-hour increments to set the watch for the second zone. As the hour hand moves, it reveals an 18-karat rose gold “home time” hand that corresponds to the original time zone. A rhodium-plated hour hand sits above the “home time” hand, pressing a rose gold pusher incorporated into the crown, similar to the split-seconds chronograph hand.
Inside the model, the caliber PF051 operates behind a sapphire exhibition caseback. The automatic winding manufacture movement powers the split GMT function and features a rose gold micro-rotor. Côtes de Genève and perlage decorations complete the rose gold “home time” hand on the reverse across the movement finished in rose gold.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante is available through the brand’s boutique and select Parmigiani Fleurier retailers, priced at $28,700.
