For those who seek uncompromising quality paired with sleek modernity, the Tonda Métro collection from Parmigiani Fleurier is your watch of choice. Featuring the Métrographe for men and Métropolitaine for women, this aptly named collection reflects the thriving buzz of today's fast-paced cities. The timepieces are an embodiment of urban sophistication and flawless craftsmanship.
Modelled after the Tonda 1950, the Tonda Métro is an elegant, refined incarnation with its longer proportions. In spite of its slimmer countenance, it boasts a calibre 3,000 movement that is reinforced by a double barrel for a constant linear distribution of power. In a play on the contrasts found within the concrete jungle — think dark and light, nature versus man-made — the Tonda Métro displays this juxtaposition by emphasising a particular facet. The chronograph complication is the piece that stands out in the Métrographe; outlined with Superluminova material that highlights them during the day but glows in the night.
Easily discernable by its signature Abyss Blue dial, this singularly unique shade can only be crafted by Parmigiani Fleurier's master dial-makers using a specialised electroplating method that requires extreme skill and accuracy. With every component finished entirely by hand to achieve unparalleled results that cannot be replicated by a machine, the Tonda Métro is a technical marvel wherein the elements of industry, watchmaking and craftsmanship converge for unrivalled excellence.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Métro Collection retails exclusively at The Hour Glass boutiques.
