Parmigiani Fleurier has launched the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire at SIHH 2016, the brand's first ever integrated chronograph. Arguably considered the epitome of a timepiece movement, Parmigiani's first of a planned collection of integrated chronographs highlights the brand's technical know-how and expertise.
"Since the very start of our watchmaking adventure, the idea of creating an integrated Chronograph has always been close to my heart," said the company's founder Michel Parmigiani. "To successfully create an integrated chronograph, one must first master its imposing, meticulous assembly of constituent parts; not just their manufacture, but also their operation and function at the heart of a calibre; one must appreciate both their limits and potential. For this reason, an integrated chronograph is necessarily the work of an experienced manufacture. The Tonda Chronor Anniversaire is a reflection of 20 years of work."
The complications included in the non-modular model include the large date and split second function. The dials come in two colours, white and royal blue — the new colour in the brand's colour swatch. The cases on the other hand come in white or rose gold. Only a total of 50 Tonda Chronor Anniversaire timepieces will be produced.
