Parmigiani Fleurier recently merged the elegance of the Tonda PF collection, with the sportyness of the Tonda GT Chronograph to create the new Tonda PF Sport range which includes this dashing chronograph. The result is a very fine, but slightly less formal take on the brand’s luxury sports watch. The difference lies in the more pronounced guilloché decoration on the silver dial, with black subdials of course, fewer knurled edges in the bezel and the integration of a black rubber strap. The high-frequency integrated chronograph movement is made in-house. It retails for EUR 29,500 in stainless steel, or EUR 51,200 in 18k rose gold.
We all love a good chronograph exact replica watches, don’t we? But what determines what makes a chronograph, well, good? For some, it might come down to the design, for others, it has all to do with perceived value for money or the type of movement (manual vs. automatic), and then there are those looking for complexity like flyback or rattrapante functionality. But what we can all pretty much agree on, is the allure of a Panda-dial chronograph, if done right! There’s just something very appealing in a white (or silver) dial with black contrasting subdials. So much so, that in 2021 creative masterminds MB&F decided to go a step further and present an actual Panda watch for the Only Watch charity auction (admittedly, not a chronograph) and it’s making somewhat of a return for this year’s edition it seems. Sticking with the topic at hand though, here’s our little celebration of the ever-popular Panda-dial chronograph, with a subtle splash of colour mixed in for good measure.
The Panda edition of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph was a long time coming, and it’s a pretty darn good-looking fake rolex for sale. It has a very sporty look with its signature 6-sided bezel and tonneau-shaped case, complemented by the silver dial with black subdials and minute track. It’s also the most robust watch of the series, as it has a soft-iron casing ring to protect the Calibre 5200 from magnetic forces and 150m of water resistance. It comes with an interchangeable steel bracelet, integrated of course, as well as rubber or leather straps. Priced at EUR 36,700, it’s one of the more costly options in this Buying Guide.
