At the 2019 Geneva Watch Fair, Parmigiani added a masterpiece to Toric Hémisphères Rétrograde, introducing a rock gray dial with a hand-embossed machine-engraved pattern. Speaking of Toric Hémisphères Rétrograde, this is a watch made by Parmigiani for travelers. With the help of two time zone displays, the watch can be paired to any two locations on the watch with a display accuracy of minutes. (Watch model: PFC493-1000200-HA1242)
Inspired by the restoration of old timepieces, Parmigiani added GMT dual time zone complication to the watch. In order to be able to display two time zones in the same watch, Parmigiani found a solution to control two time zones at the same time with the same movement, and launched the world’s first Tonda Hémisphères in 2010. This year, Parmigiani added another masterpiece to create a wrist watch suitable for travelers who travel between the two places.

The watch has a diameter of 42.8 millimeters, and the round case is made of 18K rose gold. The surface is polished with a polishing process, which has a luster and warmth, showing a special texture of metal.
At 2 o’clock, a small crown is set, and the second time zone can be adjusted separately by pulling the crown out. The accuracy of the adjustment is minutes. The main crown at 4 o’clock is used to wind the movement and set the time for the two paired time zones. It is also used to set the date.
The dial adopts hand-engraved pattern, which is engraved with repeated decorative patterns on the material, which is very delicate, adding elegance and elegance to the watch.
At 12 o’clock, there is a second time zone time display, which is associated with the day and night display window next to it.
In addition, there is a main time zone day / night indicator at 6 o’clock, and both time zones are equipped with day and night display windows to quickly read the time of day in each time zone. The lower edge of the dial is also equipped with a semi-circular retrograde date display.
The movement uses the PF317 movement, which can provide a power reserve of 50 hours. The movement is equipped with two barrels in series, which improves isochronism and rate stability. Through the transparent case back, you can see the ‘Geneva Ripples’ decorated on the movement, as well as the carefully carved 18K rose gold rotor.
The watch is paired with a brown leather strap, embellished with natural cracks, for elegance.
The TOPRIC series dual time zone watch launched by Parmigiani captures people’s hearts with carefully designed details and practical functions, showing elegant and long-lasting beauty and unlimited pursuit of watchmaking technology.
