lready twenty years old! Last year, Parmigiani Fleurier celebrated this important anniversary by showcasing the many achievements of its independent manufacture. It is the birthplace of exceptional pieces and inventions, a place where primary research is conducted on a daily basis, resulting in all the hallmarks of its exacting timepieces. Looking to the future, the brand’s aim is to continue to put forward an independent vision of luxury watchmaking yet stay true to the brand’s core identity, all the while gradually breathing new life into its creations.
It is for this reason that Parmigiani Fleurier has revisited one of the most iconic watches from the Tonda line. The Métrographe now offers a more dynamic design fuelled by watchmaking references. It retains its original urban attitude, but new indications such as the tachymeter and revisited counter proportions place it squarely in the chronograph tradition. Powered by a PF315 automatic movement and equipped with an additional chronograph module, it now meets every modern need, having been designed for the contemporary man and his strictly scheduled day,with the accent on efficiency and increasing opportunities for exchange. With added vigour, the Métrographe retains its spirit whilst keeping in step with the times.
- The fully polished case holds a brilliant silver white or oxidised black dial. The size of the counters, which are slightly raised, makes them easier to read. A red number 1 date marker, double-sided hand at 3 o’clock and redesigned indices are just some of the features that give the Métrographe its energy.
