Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Hemispheres Watch
The new Tonda watch from Parmigiani is the Tonda Hemispheres - which provides two timezones that can be independently set to the minute. Many two time zone watches force you to change the time for the second time zone in one hour increments only. Because there are lot of time zones that differ by 30 minutes, rather than one hour. Plus, each time zone has a 24 hour indicator that is used as an AM/PM indicator. Nifty.
Inside the watch is a Parmigiani calibre PF337.01 automatic movement that features the two times and the date. The beautiful open dial is still legible, and nicely decorated. Case is 42mm wide and in steel with Parmigiani's standard, good looking lugs and high polish. Still, it has looks that you either love or hate. At least reading it and operating it are going to be easy enough. Parmigiani pairs the Tonda Hemisphere with an Hermes blue alligator strap. Look out for it soon.
