To mark its 20th anniversary, Parmigiani is unveiling the Tonda Chronor Anniversaire, its new integrated chronograph movement, a feat of watchmaking that very few of today's manufactures are capable of achieving. With its first Anniversary model featuring a gold movement, Parmigiani pays tribute to the tradition of the chronograph.


The movement PF361 encloses many cutting edge developments designed to increase its reliability, it includes a chronograph, a split second function and a large date, all on the same main plate. With 36,000 vph high oscillation frequency calibre, it enables a precision to the 10th of second.  This movement also has two column wheels, one to govern the chronograph, the other to drive the split second function in perfect synchronism. The use of column wheels instead of a cam makes the movement runs smoother when operating. Besides, the movement uses a vertical clutch instead of a horizontal clutch. The action of this device boosts the accuracy of measurements by enabling the chronograph to start up both immediately and without the slightest initial jolt. With the double attachment point on the cross-through bridge, the component regulating the movement, the balance, is more stable and robust.
