The beautifully balanced Parmigiani Métrographe

Parmigiani Métrographe
The Parmigiani Métrographe is a beautifully balanced chronograph

The Tonda is the basis and the new Parmigiani Métrographe adds a dynamic design to that original shape. The redesigned dial looks completely different from traditional chronographs, but it isn’t alienating or has a contrived modernistic effect.

parmigiani-metrographe-soldatWhat is very evident is the fact that Michel Parmigiani and his team are professionals who are continuously looking for the true meaning of haute horlogerie. The back dial is combined with rose gold details to take advantage of the warm reflection of the light, and the white dial has been given blued hands. The number ‘8’ is very prominent in both dial designs.

The steel case with its restrained 40mm size houses an automatic chronograph calibre from the company’s own manufacture. Calibre PF315 ticks at 28,800 vibrations per hour, has a power reserve of 42 hours and consists of 351 components. The price of this beautifully balanced chronograph has not yet been released.
