Parmigiani Fleurier Unveils The Tonda PF Minute Rattrapante Watch

Parmigiani debuts the ingenious and innovative split-minute function.


Parmigiani Fleurier has introduced a watch that is set to redefine the way time is measured. The new Tonda PF Minute Rattrapante timepiece features an ingenious complication that measures elapsed minutes on demand with superimposed minute hands. This world-first concept is showcased in a steel case that measures 40mm x 10.7mm and features a signature platinum hand-knurled bezel, teardrop-shaped lugs, pushers, and an integrated bracelet. The watch is water-resistant to 60m.

The sand grey dial of the Tonda PF Minute Rattrapante is elegant, with grain d’orge hand-guilloché and skeletonized, gold, delta-shaped hands, hand-applied gold indices, and the gold oval PF cartouche at noon. Powered by an in-house movement calibre PF052, with a 22k gold micro-rotor decorated with guilloché and Côtes de Genève on the bridges. It beats at 21,600vph/3Hz with a power reserve of 48 hours.

The unique split-minutes function provided by the movement is a world-first, where two superimposed minute hands are used, one to display elapsed minutes, and the other to display the function of a graduated bezel on a diver’s watch by displaying the minutes in five- and one-minute increments.

The watch is part of the brand’s permanent collection and retails for CHF 28,000.
