Parmigiani’s Annual Calendar Offers Practicality and Panache

Carol Besler

In offering a new annual calendar, Parmigiani Fleurier has updated its line with a popular complication—a calendar that needs adjustment just once a year—that lessens the complexity and cost of a perpetual calendar mechanism. The new Tonda Retrograde Annual Calendar ($32,800) adds a large and stylish retrograde calendar function in an arc along the upper dial from 8 o’clock to 4 o’clock. Uniquely, it also offers two indications for the moon: one for the Northern Hemisphere and one for the Southern Hemisphere, in rose gold detailing. The display is highly accurate, only needing adjustment every 120 years. (949.489.2885, www.parmigiani.ch)
