Parmigiani Fleurier has been involved with the prestigious Fleurier Quality Foundation certification label since 2004, and this is not the first of its pieces to meet the rigorous test criteria required of Certified Haute Horlogerie. The new Tonda Qualité Fleurier offers superior chronometric performance to that of its predecessors, and has been entirely reworked in terms of design and aesthetics.
The Tonda Qualité Fleurier is built on the Parmigiani Fleurier calibre 4000 with a power reserve of 55 hours. The unique feature of this movement is its series-mounted double barrel, which helps to stabilise the distribution of energy and ensure its transmission to the regulator at a constant level. Hence, whether the tension is at its maximum, when the movement is fully wound, or its minimum, when the power reserve has run down, the power inside the mechanism is stable and maintained to ensure perfect timekeeping.
The aesthetic qualities of the Tonda Qualité Fleurier are guided by the pursuit of classicism and elegance. The straight line between the horns on the case achieves a beautiful balance between the roundness of the case and the linear extension of the strap. The profile of the horns is unchanged, with the characteristic lug shape remaining faithful to the brand’s codes.
A minute track with small, straight painted graduations links the numerals, producing a symbolic representation of the dial’s measuring reliability. At the base of the central second hand sits the brand’s characteristic crescent moon.
The date aperture at 6 o’clock is surrounded by a red gold frame, with the word “Chronomètre” inscribed beneath and following the rounded contour of the date in a powerful yet discreet intimation of the piece’s reliability. Finally, the inscription “Qualité Fleurier” appears at 12 o’clock, fully spelled out rather than symbolised by its logo, and imparting an air of timeless authenticity to the piece.
