Parmigiani Fleurier – Tonda 1950 Tourbillon
Following two years of innovative work, Parmigiani Fleurier introduced the world’s most slender programmed flying tourbillon with miniature rotor, an accomplishment that prepares the new Tonda 1950 Tourbillon, a watch that combines the basic and exquisite lines the Tonda assortment with a Haute Horlogerie complication.
To accomplish the outstanding slenderness of the 3 Hz (21,600 vph) PF517 development at simply 3.4 mm, the miniature rotor in 950 platinum is straightforwardly coordinated in the fundamental plate, without adding to the thickness with an additional layer.
Incorporating the miniature rotor, the barrel, the tourbillon confine, the time-setting component and the focal presentation framework in a similar fundamental plate was a major test that Parmigiani Fleurier drew closer without balancing the time show.
To conserve on space, Parmigiani Fleurier made a flying tourbillon whose extraordinary component is a pen mounted on a solitary help connect. A metal ball replaces the mounting capacity, without adding to the thickness of the development.
Because of the choice to utilize titanium, Parmigiani Fleurier had the option to make the world’s lightest (0.255 g) tourbillon confine. Its low weight and dormancy empower rotational development with no deficiency of force. The tourbillon’s proficiency is expanded and the chronometry of the watch improved.
Produced using blued steel, the seconds hand shapes an essential piece of the tourbillon confine. Truth be told, this hand isn’t created independently to the tourbillon yet from the very assembling office with the significant errand to absolutely balance the heaviness of different components that make up the tourbillon confine.
The tourbillon’s direction, dictated by a point comparing to 07:08, is featured by a red applique around the edge of the seconds.
The extensions of the development are embellished with a diagonal example shaped of a progression of Côtes de Genève. Their plan, which follows a round bend, appear as a wave, mirroring the motions of the tourbillon which spread through the development.
The Tonda 1950 Tourbillon is accessible with five dial adaptations: white or dark jade with a white gold case, grained white or blue void with Côtes de Genève embellishment and a red gold case, and dim mother of pearl with a white gold case including a valuable jewel set bezel.
For all models, the case has a distance across of 40.20 mm and an absolute thickness of 8.65 mm. The cost of the Tonda 1950 Tourbillon is US$ 130,000 aside from the rendition with dim mother of pearl dial and jewels which has a cost of US$ 135,000. parmigiani.ch
