Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Hemisphere
Parmigiani Fleurier just introduced a new version of their popular Tonda Hemisphere timepiece. Like the previous versions, this one has a dual time zone (GMT) feature. Both time zones are fully visible, at a glance, including minutes and hours. On top of that, each has its own day/night indicator. There is also an exposed date window, that allows you to see three days at a time. Two crowns control the separate time zones, and the main crown also allows you to wind the watch and set the date. All new on this model, is a partially skeletonized dial. You can see some of the gears and screws, which gives it a very appealing look. The silver inner circle on the dial is metal, and is finished with Geneva stripes, further adding to the dial aesthetics. The only other big change, is the blue color scheme, including a blue Hermes crocodile strap.
The case is fully polished stainless steel and is 42 mm in diameter. Inside is a in-house automatic calibre. Water-resistance is 50 meters. Retail $15,000 (estimated)
