    I like this much better than other high-end sports watches with integrated bracelet. This shape and curves of bracelet looks amazing indeed.
    A brief from Hodinkee article on it;

    The Parmigiani Fleurier Tondagraphe GT Annual Calendar Chronograph: case, stainless steel, 42mm x 13.7mm, sapphire front and back, with 100 meters' water resistance. Movement, self-winding caliber PF043, 30mm x 7.4mm; 45-hour power reserve, running at 28,800 vph in 56 jewels. Limited edition of 200 pieces worldwide; price, $19,500 with a steel bracelet; $18,500 on a rubber strap.

    I made a reservation for the three-hander. Should be available late September at retail. It’s hot, very hot! ::love::

    That calendar chronograph is nice.

    I love the bit about the golden ratio.

    I hate modern styled watches. I like everything about this except the coin edge bezel....

    I don’t know what else to do... but yeah...

    seriously I normally hate CF style dials, skeleton hands... I like this one. But that bezel....

    And the bezel was the first thing which has taken my attention. It’s a crazy world....;)

    I'm not usually a fan of coin edge bezels, but Parmigiani does a pretty good job with them. Their prior Toric cases had two coin edge-style bezels and they are considered classic cases now. I've got a Parmigiani rattrapante in white gold with pink dial....love the case, and the movement isn't too shabby. 10 pieces made.

    I like that one, as it dresses up the watch with that double bezel.

    @munichblue its just a very nicely done modern design with a huge retro throwback with the bezel... maybe if the bezel was tungsten I would dig it. Even better smooth tungsten would look great.

    I actually much prefer this sort of textured bezel, which hides marks on what's otherwise the most commonly scratched-up surface of a watch. Looking forward to checking these out in person. ABTW did a pretty good hands-on already:

    I think it works on that one, as it has alot of traditional elements on it.

    The Pershing 002 rubber band is quite impressive.

    Just wondering if you decided to purchase. Certainly it is a modern design on the integrated sports watch case and bracelet. The black lume probably won't do much but many luxury watches have little to no lume. The style does not look like anything sold that I can think of today. Certainly has similarities to watches of the past.

    No. I didn't buy the watch. I'm not an active sports type person. I think my Explorer 1, Santos, Geophysic 1958, Reverso and PAM 931 cover that base exhaustively...
