Parmigiani Fleurier - Tonda 1950 Lune

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 Lune

The new Tonda 1950 Lune is available for men and women, with an updated moonphase design.

Two years after it first appeared, Parmigiani Fleurier is updating the aesthetic of the Tonda 1950 Lune with a model featuring a slate dial and a second design with a white mother-of-pearl dial and round diamonds on the bezel. Both measure 39.1 mm in diameter and are 9.6 mm thick. They showcase the poetry of the "lunar calendar" complication with a new layout. Behind this harmony, it is easy to forget the sheer mechanical complexity required to create an ultra-thin self-winding movement which comprises so many time indications.

With a rose gold case matched with a slate colour dial, this Tonda 1950 Lune is the epitome of the classic elegant watch. The lunar calendar, displaying the two hemispheres, is located at 10 o'clock instead of its previous position at 12 o'clock. This offset layout balances the date at 3 o'clock, the logo at 1 o'clock, and the small seconds window at 6 o'clock. All of the time indications are structured to create a pleasingly harmonious dial.

On the other hand, the Tonda 1950 Lune with diamonds features a rose gold case, a white mother-of-pearl dial, and a bezel set with 52 diamonds. Additional touches adorn the piece, such as the moon at 10 o'clock which is set in the middle of a starry sky, and the gold outline around the date window at 4 o'clock. Lastly, the dial has been made smaller to accommodate a slightly broader bezel, allowing larger diamonds to be set within it, offering exceptional sparkle and brilliance, unlike any other.

The calibre PF708

The Tonda 1950 Lune owes its slender proportions to its calibre, the PF708, a mechanism combining precision and reliability with automatic winding thanks to its platinum micro-rotor. Its elements have been carefully arranged on the main plate to ensure the various time indications are harmoniously displayed. As is standard practice at Parmigiani Fleurier, it boasts hand-applied finishes, bevelled bridges and "Côtes de Genève" decoration.

The Tonda 1950 Lune are worn on Hermès leather alligator strap - black for the men's model and "ficelle"-color, red or indigo for the women's watch. They are secured with a rose gold pin buckle.
The watches are sold for CHF 29,000 (men's model) and CHF 37,000(ladies' model).

The brand

One of the more recent success stories of the Swiss watchmaking industry, Parmigiani Fleurier emerged from the close relationship between watchmaker Michel Parmigiani and the Sandoz Family Foundation.
