The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Sport Is For Those Who Enjoy Athletic Endeavours With Understated Luxurious Stylings

The Tonda PF, a collection of understated luxury and fine details, has been the backbone of Parmigiani Fleurier’s direction since 2021. The watchmaker now broadens that strategy by introducing the Tonda PF Sport, though it is not excessively radical and remains close to its forerunner.

Indeed, one would be forgiven for not immediately noticing the difference. On both the new models—a time-and-date and chronograph—the Tonda PF hallmarks are all present: the ‘triangular nail’ guilloche pattern on the dial, the knurled bezel, the skeleton hands, and the barely-there hour markers. The most obvious difference is on the chronograph, which has black subdials in the traditionally motorsports-associated ‘panda’ fashion. The strap is another giveaway—it is black rubber, though with a textile pattern and stitching that downplays what may otherwise be an overly adventurous option. And then, there are the fine details: it has precisely 160 notches as opposed to the 220 of the Tonda PF, nudging the Tonda PF Sport a step towards boldness rather than refinement. And it has lume, too, befitting a sports watch, and in black SuperLuminova on the markers and tips of the hands to match the rest of the theme.

The Tonda PF Sport Automatic is 41mm in diameter, making it ever-so-slightly larger than its non-sport counterparts, while the Chronograph remains at 42mm. Their movements are familiar ones—5Hz and COSC-certified in the case of the Chronograph—though they have been updated with a new rotor that was designed after the steering wheel of the iconic Ferrari 250 GTO. In practical terms, their formats are not dissimilar to the pre-existing Parmgiani Fleurier offerings, but once again it is about the fine details that offer a subtle shift in mood and expression.
