Featuring an alluring colour scheme and eye-catching moon-phase complication, the Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène from Parmigiani Fleurier’s Métro collection now welcomes two new editions in 2017.
Bearing the hallmarks of a conventional moon phase model, the Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène boasts a mother of pearl dial featuring two bronze-coloured lunar discs that appear and disappear behind the wisps of a cloud. Despite this classic appearance, this timepiece features numerous distinctive touches executed thanks to the expertise of the Parmigiani Fleurier Watchmaking Centre, making it a true original.
A corrector at 9 o'clock enables the wearer to independently index the moon in relation to the day and date in order to match its phase to the geographic reference location. This moon correction device features a safety system thanks to the blade, which is flexible to prevent irreparable damage to the gear in the event of incorrect operation.
