The holy grail of an accomplished watch manufacture

To mark its 20th anniversary in 2016, Parmigiani Fleurier is unveiling the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire, its new integrated chronograph movement, a feat of watchmaking that very few of today's manufactures are capable of achieving. With its “Anniversaire" Edition — featuring a gold movement, Parmigiani Fleurier pays tribute to the tradition of the chronograph.

A split-second function

Perfectly integrated into the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire's PF361 movement, the split-second function enhances the chronograph with its potential to measure split times. The split-second hand is driven by the movement's second column wheel, using a mechanism which indexes it to the chronograph's central seconds hand and releases it for the split timing measurements. This complication requires a second kinematic chain, in addition to that of the chronograph, which presents a major challenge for adjustment.

Column wheels instead of a cam

The movement is organised around a central column wheel which is the nerve centre of the chronograph, the part which synchronises all its elements. This piece is more difficult to create and more precious than a simple cam, and lends the movement an elegance that can only come from this level of expertise. The column wheel is also perceptibly smoother when operating. This is what we call the chronograph's activation ergonomics. This movement has two column wheels, one to govern the chronograph, the other to drive the split second function in perfect synchronism.

An 18-carat gold movement

Every aspect of working with gold during a manufacture process is complicated. Gold sticks to the tools; it is malleable and deforms easily; all the machines needed to be completely recalibrated and each cutting parameter needed changing. Successfully manufacturing a movement this complex from gold demonstrates a considerable level of expertise. Its decoration – no less technical – requires 50 hours of work per unit, and features internal angles and Michel Parmigiani's signature engraved on the barrel.

PF361

Gold hand-wound movement, chronograph, fly-back hand, large date

The first integrated chronograph from the Parmigiani Fleurier manufacture is a hand-wound movement that includes a chronograph, a split-seconds function and a large date, all on a single main plate. The solid gold PF361 movement incorporates several state-of-the-art technological developments that increase its reliability and reveal the true prowess of the watchmaking industry. It oscillates at a frequency of 5 Hertz, or 36,000 vibrations per hour – rare for such a complication – guaranteeing greater chronograph accuracy.
