In the last days of 2019, some giants of high watchmaking continue to surprise us with luxurious, stylish novelties. These are two new high-end watches from such renowned brands as Parmigiani Fleurier and Chanel.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Chronor Slate

The world-known company from Fleurier decided to stir up interest in its exquisite split chronograph, which was presented at SIHH 2016 and a year later, received the first prize of the Geneva Grand Prix (Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève) in “The Best Chronograph” category.

In addition to the existing versions of the impressive timekeeping device with matte white and blue (Bleu Roi) dials in cases of 18-carat rose or white gold, the manufacturer, has announced references with a deep gray dial that will be released as part of a limited 25-unit series for each type of gold.

The new wristwatch from Parmigiani Fleurier is the first integrated chronograph of the brand, which has absorbed the expertise of all production divisions of Parmigiani Fleurier Watchmaking Center – factories Atokalpa, Elwin, Les Artisans Boîtiers (the case), Quadrance & Habillage (the dial) and the legendary manufacturer of mechanisms Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier.

The additional complexity of the caliber PF361 (manual winding, diameter of 30.6 millimeters, height – 8.5 millimeters, 328 parts, balance frequency – 36,000 PCs/h, power reserve of 65 hours) is due to the use of a split section of the chronograph (with a second column wheel), which allows you to record the results of intermediate measurements.

Also, the watch mechanism with platinum and elegantly skeletonized bridges in rose gold is characterized by the presence of a convenient big date indicator at the 12-o’clock position.

The producer of the Havana alligator leather strap that comes with the classic gold clasp is traditionally the Hermès brand.

In December of 2019, the iconic Chanel House has added a stylish novelty to the Code Coco collection of high-end watches. At the end of 2019, the gorgeous timekeeping device that became the timepiece embodiment of the most famous Chanel bag (2.55), shone in beige gold. The case, dial, bracelet, hands, and other small parts of the new fascinating wristwatch are made of an exclusive alloy first presented in 2017 for the 30th anniversary of the brand’s watch division.

The dimensions of the opulent model are as follows: 38.1 x 21.50 x 7.8 millimeters. Inside the case, there is a precisely working quartz movement. The highlight of this product line of fancy timekeeping devices is a vertically oriented dial divided in two by a rotating “lock.” If necessary, the “lock” will hide the hands of the timepiece, turning this high-end watch into an exquisite bracelet.
