Parmigiani Fleurier has consistently devoted itself to serving their female clientele with unwavering commitment.

“Since its inception in 1996, Parmigiani Fleurier has earned acclaim as an exceptional watch manufacturer. From the beginning, I set out to create women’s watches, guided by an unwavering commitment to excellence and the pursuit of the highest standards. The House has consistently devoted itself to serving our female clientele with unwavering commitment. Crafting timepieces that epitomize horological perfection and exquisite finishing, these watches embody both mechanical precision and aesthetic sophistication—the very essence of Parmigiani Fleurier’s mastery in the mechanical arts.” – Michel Parmigiani

“With each Parmigiani Fleurier launch, we approach our creations as blank canvases, seeking to infuse them with a unique identity. For these three new references, we’ve envisioned a refined fusion between rose gold and steel, integrating the setting as true artistry. This approach transcends mere material combinations, resulting in a distinctive stylistic signature. By embracing sophisticated minimalism, we aim to elevate what defines us: purism and the elegance of fluid lines—a vision of haute horlogerie that is essential, pure, and beautiful.” – Guido Terreni, CEO Parmigiani Fleurier

For Women Embracing the Highest Standards of Horological Mechanical Arts

Since its founding in 1996, Parmigiani Fleurier has distinguished itself by its commitment to fundamental values: watchmaking complexity, high added value, superlative finishing, and haute horlogerie movements. This quest for excellence, cultivated for over a quarter of a century, has forged the brand’s enviable reputation among collectors.

From the outset, Parmigiani Fleurier has also responded to the expectations of its female clientele by developing watch lines specifically designed for them.

Rejecting stereotypes, Parmigiani Fleurier launched the Classic Ladies collection in 1996. Each watch in this collection has a mechanical movement hand-decorated to the company’s exacting standards. The gold or platinum cases, set with diamonds depending on the version, and the dials adorned with baguette-cut diamond hour markers testify to the meticulous attention paid to detail. Twenty-eight years on, these standards of excellence remain unchanged.

Sophisticated Minimalism

Echoing this, the Tonda PF Automatic 36mm, in the versions presented in 2024, has chosen to reach out to a female clientele looking for great watchmaking signatures. A new generation of women who appreciate fine watchmaking combined with a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic. Attracted by watches with refined lines and exceptional craftsmanship, they cultivate a taste for discretion.

These new creations, in 18-carat pink gold and adorned with baguette-cut diamonds on the dial or in 18-carat pink gold and steel, feature subtle settings that stand out like true works of art. All three focus on the refined aesthetic elegance of the House. A single rule guides Tonda PF Automatic 36mm: the essential prevails over the superfluous. Their singular identity promises exceptional comfort while remaining true to their own refined and unique signature.

At the crossroads of purism and affluence, they reflect a subtle, delicate balance between sobriety and opulence. The new Tonda PF Automatic 36mm plays on contrasts by combining the fluidity of its design with the depth of its mechanisms. Each watch seems to float gracefully on the wrist while housing a complex and fascinating universe of haute horlogerie. This duality adds an extra dimension to each aesthetically pleasing, high-performance timepiece.

Exclusively Ethical Gold and Diamonds

Parmigiani Fleurier adheres to the strictest rules of Swiss Haute Horlogerie. These values obviously apply to the controlled use of gold and diamonds, which are certified ethically according to the most rigorous international standards.

Their global traceability meets the highest standards of transparency and control at every stage of the process, from extraction to the finished product. Responsible gold and diamonds certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).

Diamond Design, Brilliant Fluidity 

The Tonda PF Automatic 36mm is both sumptuous and delicate. It is made of 18-carat pink gold and studded with diamonds, subtly evoking the spirit of Parmigiani Fleurier’s presumed lightness and preciousness. The pattern traced by the precious stones from the crown to the sides of the bracelet gives the model its full visual identity and enhances the bracelet’s fluidity.

The brilliant-cut diamonds that run along the outer sides of the bracelet, a unique feature of this creation, are of different sizes to fit perfectly into their sculpted gold cases. While the bezel is adorned with precious stones – brilliant-cut diamonds – the buckle is fully set, revealing only the brand logo in 18-carat pink gold.

Hidden, it is, by definition, an intimate pleasure, revealing the beauty of a tactile object, punctuated by an organic heart that conveys emotion and is charged with sensual preciousness.

Rare enough among ladies’ watches to merit a special mention, this jewellery creation does not detract from the technical sophistication and expertise behind it: a double-barrelled automatic movement, a hand-guilloched dial and a bracelet of exceptional finish, among other thoughtful features. It is a reminder of the House’s passion for beautiful objects and the mechanical arts.

A Rich and Unique Identity

The Tonda PF Automatic 36mm is, by its very nature, precious. Its size makes it possible to combine its contents, its manufacture movement, with the creative and aesthetic execution to which it lends itself.

For those who prefer precious metal alone, Parmigiani Fleurier offers a version entirely in 18-carat pink gold, which contrasts delicately with the precious hand-guilloched “Warm Grey” dial, an emblematic shade of Parmigiani Fleurier.

This darker hue highlights the invisible-set baguette-cut diamonds that form the hour markers on the dial. They respond discreetly to the brilliant-cut diamonds set on the bezel, underlining its knurling, another distinctive signature of the brand.

Subtle elements that give the watch a rich and singular identity.

Rose Gold as An Element of Style

“The devil is in the detail”, as the saying goes. This is certainly the case with the delicate combination of 18-carat pink gold on the knurled bezel and 18-carat pink gold threads running through the inner mesh of the bracelet.

Beyond appearances, the marriage of the two metals and their specific colours remains a delicate exercise. The result must express balance, proportions, and a visual signature.

Tonda PF Automatic 36mm suggests its preciousness through baguette-cut diamond hour markers, highlighted on the “White Citrine” guilloché dial.

Its allure is supremely balanced: rather than simply alternating gold and steel links, for example, Parmigiani Fleurier has chosen to integrate 18-carat pink gold as a central stylistic element, an aesthetically active protagonist that goes far beyond a mere chromatic addition.

This approach gives the watch its stylistic power and personality, in the same spirit as the diamonds set on the bracelet of the rose gold version.
