Dubai, UAE, January 05, 2019:  Parmigiani Fleurier has expanded its Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène range following the resounding success of this watch, launched in 2016, with two new models in rose gold. These models display the moon phases thanks to a movement produced entirely in-house and set in a modern, refined rose gold case. 
 
ROSE GOLD DOWN TO THE FINEST DETAILS
The Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène in rose gold features two dial versions: the first, in abyss blue, is adorned with a central lotus flower – a symbol of femininity. This decoration is cut from mother of pearl and applied to the dial, from which it stands out 0.2 mm. The satin and polished finishes of the lace design create a play of light that beautifully showcases the quality of the workmanship. The second dial is made from highly reflective white mother of pearl, and features a lotus flower in solid rose gold, echoing the indices and the case. On each dial version, the bezel is adorned with 76 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling ~0.52 carat.
 
THE LUNAR DANCE ACROSS THE DIAL
The russet moon of the Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène emulates the brilliance of the night sky. It is magnified thanks to its surface made up of craters — known as lunar seas — obtained by hand-applying successive layers of transfers. This watch offers a genuine embodiment of the moon on the wrist that disappears and emerges from wisps of cloud amidst its starry constellation. 
The richness of the Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène resides in each of its individual details and its overall integrity. Decorative operations carried out by hand give it a tangible and unique value.
 
THE MOON PHASE COMPLICATION
The PF318 movement and its moon phase module is the 33rd movement created within the Parmigiani Fleurier manufactures. The moon phase's operating principle is based on a gear moved by the hour wheel, which rotates at half the speed of the gear. The gear drives the moon disc every 24 hours via a flexible blade integrated in the centre of its wheel. A corrector at 9 o'clock enables the wearer to independently index the moon in relation to the day and date in order to match its phase to the geographic reference location. 
The PF318 self-winding movement has a power reserve of 50 hours and excellent isochronism thanks to its two series-mounted barrels that regulate the rate. Visible through the watch's sapphire case back, this calibre is entirely circular-grained, decorated with Côtes de Genève and bevelled to the finest haute horlogerie standards customarily applied in the Parmigiani Fleurier manufacture.
