Parmigiani Tonda Chronor Anniversaire Watch With New In­te­grated Split-Sec­onds Chronograph Move­ment Hands-On

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - 360 Watches -

Swiss Parmigiani eas­ily im­pressed the aBlog­toWatch team at SIHH 2016 when they pas­sively de­buted be­fore our eyes their brand new in-house-made and to­tally in­te­grated split-sec­onds chronograph move­ment known as the cal­iber PF361. An­nounced on the date of the brand’s 20th an­niver­sary af­ter be­ing launched in 1996, fea­tur­ing the per­son­al­ity of watch­maker Michel Parmigiani, the new-for-2016 Parmigiani Tonda Chronor Anniversaire watch is a won­der­ful of­fer­ing that will in­spire in­ter­est even in those who haven’t pre­vi­ously taken the time to ac­quaint them­selves with the brand. For the Parmigiani Tonda Chronor Anniversaire di­als, Parmigiani goes pretty clas­sic with a grand feu enamel white dial or a deep ”royal blue” dial - both of which look hand­some, if not very clas­sic given what we nor­mally see from the brand. The Tonda-style hands are coated with lume and ap­pear to be taken from a sport watch (good idea be­cause leg­i­bil­ity is ex­cel­lent). The rest of the dial is all about giv­ing a mostly tra­di­tional look - as though Parmigiani were do­ing their best A. Lange & Söhne im­pres­sions (which, mind you, isn’t a bad thing).
