The elegant restraint of the dial on the Tonda Résonance 8 almost belies the complexity of its mechanism.
The hand-wound PF350 movement has a minute repeater that sounds the hours, quarter-hours and minutes on two gongs with a “cathedral chime”. The name signifies that they encompass more than the perimeter of the case, thereby further amplifying the acoustic quality of the melody.
The Tonda Résonance 8 is a clean, classic-looking model that incorporates the attention to detail so characteristic of Haute Horlogerie. Its dial in white agate is covered in grand feu enamel, producing an effect of both depth and light. The rose gilt indices and numerals are fine and elegant, like the "Parmigiani Fleurier" logo transfer, which features discreet and restrained lettering.
