Gulf Weekly Jalal’s timely tips on the latest trends

Parmigiani Fleurier presents the limited Tonda Chronor Slate in 18 carat rose gold or white gold. There are only 25 pieces for the fancy watch which features a dial in rich slate grey.

This timepiece is symbolic of the expertise of the watchmaking centre. All of its components, excluding the strap and sapphire crystal, have been produced by the different manufactures including Atokalpa, Elwin, Les Artisans Boîtiers, Quadrance & Habillage and Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier. This watch, which is 100 per cent Swiss-made, boasts a main plate and bridges made from gold. The heart which drives this masculine jewel of Haute Horlogerie is an exclusive hand-wound calibre PF361 which beats at 36,000 oscillations per hour. It comprises two column wheels.

The Tonda Chronor Slate is actually an integrated chronograph with split-seconds. What is more, this function is actuated via a vertical clutch. To guarantee legibility, the counters are placed off-centre.

The dial also features many fine attributes such as the pulsometer and tachymeter scales, the seconds and split-seconds hands (which are different colours for improved legibility) and the counters which are set slightly above the axis of the crown.
