Parmigiani Fleurier presents a new Parmigiani Tonda Métropolitaine version with a feminine timepiece that marries a white mother-of-pearl dial with a diamond-set bezel. The Tonda Métropolitaine Rose Gold Set White Mother-of-Pearl combines the iridescent reflections of organic material with the brilliance of mineral material. Images and text Parmigiani Fleurier.
THE WHITE MOTHER-OF-PEARL DIAL
The Métropolitaine Rose Gold Set White Mother-of-Pearl dial is made from white mother-of-pearl. This natural product provides each timepiece with a unique finish. Moreover, this unique and vibrant finish provided by the mother-of-pearl perfectly complements the dance of the hands in this Haute Horlogerie timepiece. The skeletonised hands emphasise the iridescent brilliance of the dial. They appear in the date window at 6 o’clock. In the same spirit, the rose gold appliques are discreet and highlight the organic material in all its complexity.
AN ASYMMETRICAL ROSE GOLD CASE MIDDLE
The singularity of the slender case middle, with its asymmetrical profiles, appeals to modernity and dynamism. The bezel, set with 76 diamonds totalling 0.52 carats, imparts a clear brilliance to the dial, contrasting with the 18-carat rose gold colour scheme chosen for this timepiece. With an urban character, this timepiece has been designed to celebrate the daily life of women just as much as the special moments in their lives.
THE PF310 – A MOVEMENT BORN FROM EXPERTISE AND INDUSTRIAL PROGRESS
The development of the PF310 automatic movement, launched in 2014, was a watchmaking feat. Manufactured entirely within the Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking centre, the steps involved in its production were designed to guarantee consistent quality in each and every piece. The accuracy and solidity of this calibre were given particular attention, making it extremely reliable.
