In 2014, Parmigiani Fleurier released the Tonda Metro collection, which was designed to appeal to a younger audience and also be more accessible at the same time. The Metro collection includes the Tonda Métrographe watch, and they are now updating it with a fresh and more modern design. For the new Tonda Métrographe, Parmigiani has made minor revisions to the case and reworked the entire dial. Let us walk you through the changes here.
The name Parmigiani Fleurier replica watches should be familiar to most serious watch collectors and lovers. Last year, we wrote an in-depth feature about Parmigiani Fleurier and their five manufactures. No, that’s not a typo, Parmigiani Fleurier is in fact supported by five different and specialized workshops. Most people are perhaps more familiar with Parmigiani Fleurier’s more exotic works, like the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Tourbillon and their incredibly high-tech Parmigiani Senfine Concept watch, which has a revolutionary new escapement system.
The Parmigiani Tonda Métrographe watch still comes with a 40mm stainless steel case, but thickness has been reduced slightly from 12.2mm to 11.7mm. Water resistance remains the same at 30m, so a couple of splashes won’t harm it. The case retains the same design cues as its predecessors, the most notable being the powerful-looking lugs, which give it an air of strength and modernity.
The dial, however, has been completely changed. The new Parmigiani Tonda Métrographe watch will come with black and white dial versions. The two variants have similar design flourishes, but some color differences. For example, while the black dial version will feature rose gold chronograph hands, the white dial version will have blued steel chronograph hands.
The most obvious changes on the new Parmigiani Tonda Métrographe fake watches are the resized chronograph counters and the different position of the date window. The chronograph counters are now smaller, but they also have a raised periphery to add depth and details to the dial. The centers of the chronograph counters have also been decorated with snailing.
The rhodium-plated appliqués that mark out the hours have also been changed. They are smaller now and look more contemporary. The underside of the appliqués have also been snailed to aid in legibility and to add more details to the dial. Outside the hour markers is the tachymeter scale, which adds more functionality to the new Parmigiani Tonda Métrographe watch. The older Parmigiani Tonda Métrographe watch did not have a tachymeter scale.
