Parmigiani’s new Tonda Hémisphères Super-LumiNova watch has been released recently. The strong contrast style design creates a futuristic elegance.
The use of Super-LumiNova® luminous materials is unique, making the watch unforgettable both in beauty and texture. On the black dial, the second time zone dial at 12 o’clock and the small seconds dial at 6 o’clock are surrounded by luminous coating and are striking.
In a completely dark environment, Tonda Hémisphères showed a very different look, bringing a sparkling surprise. The arrangement of the two sub-dials looks like the Arabic numeral 8, and at the same time forms a symbol representing infinity and harmony. Each time scale is also covered with a delicate luminous coating, which is rigorous in elegance. In addition, in keeping with Parmigiani’s usual style, the hour and minute hands also shine brightly, ensuring that the time in the main time zone is clearly visible on the dial.
Tonda Hémisphères watch for the ultimate traveler. The dual time zone design allows the time at any two locations to be displayed simultaneously on the watch, and can be precisely adjusted and displayed to the minute. This makes it possible for Tonda Hémisphères to easily respond to areas that use non-integer time zones (based on the Greenwich Meridian), that is, half-time or 3 / 4-time zones *, highlighting the complex charm of machinery.
The internal mechanism of the Tonda Hémisphères watch is innovative and original. It integrates two independent movements, an engine and a follower, thus achieving complete synchronization with local time. This design enables the second time zone to be synchronized with the main time zone, and is related to the time of the whole time zone with the expected time difference. This time difference can be not only how many ‘hours’, but also how many minutes. Favored by travelers.
Compared with the traditional GMT world timepiece, the above function is a great leap in the technical precision of Parmigiani watches: the second time zone time of the traditional GMT timepiece is only at the ‘full hour’ interval (compared to the main Time zone time). The PF377 movement used in the new Tonda Hémisphères watch is controlled by two independent crowns: one crown is used to wind the movement and adjust the date and time in the main time zone; the other crown is used to adjust the second Time zone minutes.
Tonda Hémisphères watches have spherical day and night indicators in both time zones. This thoughtful design is not only intuitive and clear at a glance, but also gives us an idea of what people in the second time zone are doing during the day or night, and what they may be doing. Then he formed a rough scene map in his mind, warm and intimate.
Tonda Hémisphères is a watch that is both practical and poetic. It provides time measurement based on people’s feelings, while presenting extreme accuracy while leaving plenty of imagination.
