The new Parmigiani watch accommodates a self-winding PF 339 Retrograde Annual Calendar movement. It is the 17th caliber, developed in Parmigiani Fleurier’s workshops. The mechanism requires one correction per year in February, except for leap years.
The movement breathes life into an array of functions, revealed on a silver or charcoal grey dial with a delicate grained embellishment. The public can also enjoy a barley grain in the dial’s center, allied with a black or silvered opaline ring.
Equipped with spindle-shaped applique indexes, the face of the new Parmigiani Tonda Annual Calendar watch indicates central hours and minutes by means of lume-applied Delta-shaped hands. They are joined by a slim central hand.
The model also offers a date indication, which is to be read off from the 4th central hand and Arabic numerals arranged on the outer retrograde sector of the display. At 3 and 9 o’clock, the user can see month and day of the week readouts. At 6 o’clock, the dial demonstrates a highly precise moon-phase indicator, which needs to be corrected only once in 120 years.
The display is embraced by a 3-part round 150 PD white gold or 18ct rose gold case with polished finishes. It measures 40mm in diameter and is 11.2 mm thick. The top of the case is covered by a glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The sapphire glass is also used for its individually numbered bottom. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 30 meters.
The new Parmigiani watch goes on a Hermes alligator leather strap, finished with an 18ct ardillon buckle.
