GET READY TO EMBARK ON A JOURNEY INTO THE HEART
Parmigiani Fleurier is rewriting watchmaking in its two-pronged quest for purism and innovation, speaking the language of rarity, of form and meaning, traits shared by all the new models presented at Watches and Wonders 2023.
“At Parmigiani Fleurier, we aspire to create superbly elegant timepieces that appeal to the purists of tomorrow seeking for a personal hedonistic pleasure. A savvy cultural elite in watchmaking who appreciate heritage, superior craft and has a strong sense of style and refinement.”
– Guido Terreni, Parmigiani Fleurier CEO.
Good things come in pairs! Parmigiani Fleurier presents the TONDA PF Minute Rattrapante, a new world premiere that follows in the functional continuity of the TONDA PF GMT Rattrapante launched in 2022. With overlapping minute hands, this timepiece is the perfect complement to its predecessor and a testament to Parmigiani Fleurier’s dedication to pushing boundaries and creating unique, unforgettable experiences.
Tonda PF Minute Rattrapante
Innovation is not just about creating something new, it’s also about pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

The simplification of the complication
The idea behind the TONDA PF Minute Rattrapante was simple: to perform the function typically operated by the graduated bezel on a diver’s watch via the movement itself. The result? A watch that is not only user-friendly but also offers excellent legibility and apparent simplicity right down to activating the function.
While Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante enables a distinction between local and home time in one-hour increments, this new development of the function now serves to display the minutes to in five- and one-minute increments respectively.
REVEALING THE UNSEEN
The dial features an hours hand along with two superimposed minutes hands – of which the first in rhodium-plated gold indicates real time coupled with the hours hand. It conceals the other hand in 18ct rose gold, which will calculate the minutes in five- or one-minute increments on demand. In both cases, a pressure on either pusher will make the rose gold hand jump according to the desired increment: five minutes by the pusher located at 8 o’clock, one minute by the one positioned at 10 o’clock. The period of time to be measured will have elapsed when the rhodium-plated hand has reached the position of the 18ct rose gold hand. It is returned to its position by means of the crown-integrated pusher, in a similar way to the split-seconds function. Innovative yet discreet, a function that is both hidden and available on demand, perfectly in line with the elegant, subtle and streamlined design of the TONDA PF collection.
A new sense of sobriety
Like the entire TONDA PF collection, the Minute Rattrapante is a watch with great formal simplicity, designed to become one with the aesthetes who make it their own.
Inspired by the purist movement, the Minute Rattrapante embodies the values of purity and simplicity in every aspect of its design. From its elegant form to its carefully selected colors, everything about this watch is an ode to understated sophistication. As proof, the unique sandy grey shade of the dial, which imparts a sense of warmth and natural sophistication.
A daily life companion
Gone are the days of chasing time as a scarce resource that always seems to slip away. The TONDA PF Minute Rattrapante, with its revolutionary features, allows you to view time as a dynamic force that gives each moment its unique beauty and significance.
With this timepiece, you can experience the serenity and calmness that come with embracing fleeting time. Every second counts, and the TONDA PF Minute Rattrapante helps you make the most of each one.
