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.
The dial surface is perfectly smooth white lacquer, for a pure, luminous effect. The numerals are painted rather than applied, for a sober touch of authenticity that underlines the classicism of the piece.
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 symbolized by its logo, and imparting an air of timeless authenticity to the piece.
This piece is about the fundamentals, evoking simplicity, tradition and high quality through the PARMIGIANI-FLEURIER codes; it represents the very essence of what can be achieved in a watch - hours, minutes, seconds and date, all certified to guarantee exceptional precision.
