Refined yet understated, the new Tonda embodies every aspiration of the modern woman, making each moment of the day unique. Reflecting today's multicultural and multifaceted society, this new line of timepieces, with its variety of dials, functions and diameters, is an ode to diversity and features luxury codes which are undeniably feminine and utterly universal. Faithful to its history, Parmigiani Fleurier appeals to all women, from Asia to the Americas, via Europe and Africa, in all the greatest cities of the world.
From the choice of the most refined materials to the painstaking work required to create the horological elements, the greatest diligence has been applied to every phase of its design. The play of light – showcasing the different diamond cuts, combined with the sidereal reflections of the aventurine or the golden lacework delicately applied over the mother-of-pearl – has been engineered to ensure that each of these unique spectacles is a triumph at every turn. And if this were not enough, a moon phase indicator adds to the poetry on every one of the dials. In addition to its haute horlogerie expertise, Parmigiani Fleurier once again demonstrates its skill in working the most delicate of natural materials.
Shimmering mother-of-pearl takes pride of place on the dial of the Tonda Sélène mother-of-pearl. This rose gold timepiece also adopts a diameter of 36 mm. Set with 64 VVS diamonds totalling 1.8 ct, its bezel encircles a white mother-of-pearl dial set with gold indices. Fine gold lacework allows iridescent hints of mother-of-pearl to be glimpsed in its centre. Driven by the manufacture PF 318 automatic calibre with a gold oscillating weight, this timepiece has leaf-shaped luminescent hands, a moon phase indicator at twelve o'clock, and a small seconds hand at six o'clock. A white opal cabochon decorates the crown of this watch, while an Etoupe Hermès calfskin strap echoes the colours adopted by this new timepiece.
The line is completed by 3-hand Tonda Métropolitaine mother-of-pearl and Tonda Sélène aventurine versions, available with a 36 mm case, with all versions available with a 33 mm case and a bezel set with 60 diamonds totalling 0.8 ct.
