When it involves its Tonda PF line, Parmigiani Fleurier shows an obvious need to maintain issues clear, which we expect will need to have motivated the creation of the Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante. As we famous briefly on LUXUO, the rattrapante operate right here pertains to how the hand indicating the second time zone behaves, not the presence of a chronograph. We will say on the outset that this can be the last word look ahead to the connoisseur who desires an objectively particular watch that can be stealthy. That is a giant declare, we all know, however we are able to simply again it up.

First of all, one take a look at the watch and you may see that there isn’t a flyback chronograph to be discovered right here. It will not be hiding in plain sight or something like that. This is a fuss-free two-time zone watch, with the extra operate of being on-demand. Using the pusher at 8 o’clock strikes the white gold hour hand ahead by one hour, whereas revealing a second hour hand in crimson gold. This crimson gold hand will stay tied to dwelling time whereas the white gold hand now signifies native time; utilizing the pusher at 3 o’clock will get the white gold hand gliding throughout the dial to as soon as once more take its place over the crimson gold hand, the place each then transfer ahead as regular. In apply, we expect this works greatest when making an attempt to handle occasions in two nations or time zones for brief intervals, from the second you arrive to the second you permit.

In the press presentation in Geneva, Parmigiani Fleurier referred to as this watch a primary for nice watchmaking, and whereas we are able to consider one instance that works equally (extra on that in our total story on Watches & Wonders) it doesn’t do the identical factor. Splitting hairs right here is pointless as a result of the Fleurier manufacture has delivered a singular watch, in its personal means. Because the complication right here is simply lively when referred to as upon, it’s certainly a stealth choice. When in motion, it seems to be for all of the world like an everyday two-time zone watch, strengthening the stealth credentials. The solely factor that provides it away is that provocative pusher at 8 o’clock, which from a design standpoint provides a ferocious quantity of asymmetrical wrist-presence. Well, with a costume shirt or jacket, the pusher on this 10.7mm watch will successfully be invisible, however we digress.
