Parmigiani Fleurier presents a new stainless steel version of their award winning Toric Hémisphères Rétrograde.
The Toric Hémisphères Rétrograde watch features two time zones. It allows any two locations to be paired, and correct to the nearest minute. It even allows those locations with a half-hour or quarter-hour difference to be paired with full hour times set from the Greenwich meridian.
Featuring a knurled bezel, the signature feature of the Toric family, the case of this timepiece was the first creation designed by Michel Parmigiani in 1996.
The 42.8mm diameter case in stainless steel houses the PF317 self-winding movement, which offers a power reserve of 50 hours. This model has a black opaline dial with javelin shaped hour and minutes hands, and a retrograde pointer date hand with crescent shaped tip. Additionally, it offers small seconds, second time-zone and day/night functions.
In 2017, the Toric Hémisphères Rétrograde in gold won the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in the “TRAVEL TIME” category.
