Tonda 1950 Set
The brand based in Fleurier, in the Neuchâtel canton, is so deeply rooted in the watchmaking scene that we often forget it’s not even 20 years old. Founded in 1996, it epitomises its founder Michel Parmigiani’s passion for well-made watches as you can see in the classic Tonda collection which launched in 2011. This year, the timeless Tonda 1950 has slimmed down (its 39mm rose gold case is just 8.4mm thick) and lightened up with a diamond-rimmed mother-of-pearl dial. The opalescent disc lies on a bronze dial bearing twelve rose gold indices beneath two delta-shape luminescent hour and minute hands. The seconds stand in their own blue-tone counter at 6 o’ clock. The time functions and 42-hour power reserve are brought to life by the ultra-thin self-winding PF701 calibre which you can see in action through the partially openwork case back. Price: 44,900 CHF
