Tonda PF Skeleton in Rose Gold
The art of the skeleton watch remains a delicate exercise, as illustrated by the two new Tonda PF Skeleton watches in 18ct rose gold and steel/platinum. They reflect the spirit driving the Maison when it comes to watchmaking creativity, guided by a careful thought process overriding any other considerations: purity and restraint reign supreme, while the smallest details are explored in depth until the perfection of volumes, aesthetics and added value form a pleasing whole.
Skeletonisation generally consists of opening up the movement as much as possible in order to offer the eye a visual perspective through which to gaze. Parmigiani Fleurier takes a different approach: the artistic openworking of the Tonda PF Skeleton must reveal the organic life of the movement and its architecture while preserving its balance and volume.
The artisans have made the most of the solid parts and used the voids to allow light to pour into the very heart of the PF777 calibre. This meticulously hand-chamfered latticework draws the purist's eye in order to grasp some of the mysteries of its kinematics.

- Why love it
The Tonda PF Skeleton’s understated elegance underlines Parmigiani Fleurier's attachment to the finest watchmaking traditions, revisited in a very contemporary overall approach. The restrained and quintessential architecture highlights the knurled and polished bezel that beautifully catches the light and the gaze, as well as the supple, smooth-flowing bracelet design.The fundamentally pared-down Tonda PF Skeleton is in essence for individuals whose vision of watchmaking perfection confers on them the status of purists with a keen sense of style and refinement.
