Well, I thought I would be announcing a new addition to the collection . . .

The Parmigiani Tonda PF Mico-Rotor with the Golden Sierra dial was probably the only piece from W&W ‘24 that caught my attention. So, I contacted the local AD to express my interest:

I love everything about this, except for the dial, unfortunately!

Although they do refer to the dial as Golden Sierra, I was expecting more of a Salmon tone. But it really appears as a gold tone in the metal:

Some shots of the engine room:

I was excited when they informed me that one finally arrived. It just didn’t move me like I expected. So, I’m going to patiently wait for that dial color that ‘sings’ to me! In the meantime, round two!🥂

I still remember you posting after your opportunity to see in the metal. Unlike your experience, there was no plastic on it. Unfortunately, it just didn’t do it for me. Are you still on the fence with this one?

Yes, I am still thinking about it.

I think many won’t like it so if that means dealers need to move them and if I see it at like 35% off brand new maybe I’ll jump. Maybe

you did the right thing and I will probably do the same after having seen it

I have the grey which is quite nice! But there is an LE blue out there for SHH

that I think i would go with if I didn't love the grey so much... "Pacific Blue" they call it...

are u referring to the PF x SHH edition?

I am looking forward to seeing that in person the next time I am back in Taipai 😍

I can't agree more! This dial in combination with the date does make this watch almost perfect 👌

Such a wonderful watch. I don't know how the watch could be improved! ...  

great shot! I have to try that angle with my next pic

I am also on the fence since both are very similar watches…

If you don’t own the XPS, probably you will be getting this?

Great pics! The dial tone on the Parmigiana is beautiful and interesting to see it contrasted against your Chopard.

I suspect we will see more gorgeous dials from Parmigiana in the future.

I really like (love) these Tonda watches.

The guilloche dial looks tredemdous. And this one without a gaping date hole definitely is simpler and looks superior IMO. And then it's actually 40mm in size?? The 36mm size Tondas are too small for me. So, except for the dial color, which doesn't look l...
