Parmigiani Fleurier Replica remains one of the replica watch industry’s top producers of movements and parts, as well as being a replica watchmaker. Their replica watch brand, Parmigiani, remains a distinctive and often evolving, integral element of the company which began as a romantic notion of the wealthy Sandoz family and Mr. Michel Parmigiani. Soon to celebrate their 20th anniversary, we can expect a lot of interesting and unique changes from the brand in 2017 and beyond. For now, let’s take a look at the Parmigiani Tonda Quator replica watch, which is the brand’s take on a comfortable daily-wear annual calendar.
The larger Tonda collection has proven quite successful for Parmigiani. It was a good attempt at taking their intentionally avant-garde design theme and making a comfortable, round replica watch. The most distinctive “Parmigiani” element is the curved “teardrop-style” lug design, which looks best when seen from the side of the case.
Parmigiani has produced the Tonda case for men in a number of sizes such as 39mm, 40mm, 41mm, and 42mm wide, and there perhaps may be even more variety. The Parmigiani Tonda Quator is 40mm wide and 11.2mm thick, but has an odd visual mass thanks to the Hermes alligator strap which is a sizable 25mm where it connects to the case and tapers down to 22mm wide. Proportionally, this is a much wider strap than you’d normally see on a 40mm-wide replica watch. This make the timepiece appear a bit more odd when off the wrist, but the wider strap actually helps the replica watch have more visual mass when on the wrist, in my opinion.
For a dress replica watch, the 40mm-wide size isn’t bad, even if my taste preferences are for something a bit larger. Parmigiani does produce a similar replica watch to the Parmigiani Tonda Quator Replica in a 42mm wide case, but it’s hard to recommend from a value perspective. I am speaking of the Parmigiani Tonda Centum, which is a cousin to the Quator collection. The Tonda Centum is 42mm wide, contains the in-house made caliber PF333 automatic movement, and has a perpetual calendar. The Parmigiani Tonda Quator is 40mm wide, contains the in-house caliber PF339, and has an annual calendar. From a functional perspective, that means you need to adjust the calendar once in a while versus not really having to adjust the perpetual calendar, assuming the replica watch continues to run.
