The reason why the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 became a best-selling model is its elegant aesthetics. The name of Tonda 1950 is to pay tribute to the founder of the brand. 1950 is the year of birth of Mr. Michel Parmigiani. The new ultra-thin watch is designed for men seeking elegance and unique style, and its pure design also marks a return to the brand’s basic appearance.
The 18K rose gold case is polished, with a diameter of 39 mm and a thickness of only 8 mm. It is equipped with an anti-glare sapphire crystal and a transparent bottom. The new watch is available in three versions: grained white dial (PFC288-1002401-HA1242), rock gray sandblasted dial (PFC288-1000200-HA1442) and dark blue sandblasted dial (PFC288-1000601-HA3142). Dial with rose gold-plated appliqué hour markers and triangular skeleton hands.
Built-in PF701 automatic movement, eccentric miniature oscillating weight is directly integrated on the substrate, so the movement is extremely thin, only 2.6 mm thick, and has a 42-hour power reserve. The movement bridge is retouched in Geneva and round grain, while the platinum oscillating weight is embellished with a guilloché pattern.
Parmigiani’s new Tonda 1950 rose gold watch uses a Hermes black alligator leather strap and 18K rose gold folding buckle. The list price is 18,900 euros, equivalent to about RMB 150,000. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
