Slate grey and rose gold is a combination that works particularly well. Parmigiani Fleurier has applied it to several of its model recently, such as the Toric Chronomètre. It is now the time for the sleek and dressy Tonda 1950 Lune to benefit from the same elegant colour scheme – and some more updates too.
This classic and elegant Parmigiani Fleurier watch comes with a twist; the moon phase indication is offset at 10 o’clock instead of 12 o’clock as on the previous version of the Tonda 1950 Lune. The original display shows the moon as seen from the two hemispheres with two arched windows.
On the slate-coloured dial, all of the time indications are structured to balance the layout, with the small seconds at 6 o’clock and the date shown through a large aperture at 3 o’clock. The thin, applied hour markers are paired with openworked, delta-shaped hands. The overall design echoes the revamped version of the 3-hand 1950 recently introduced.
The Tonda 1950 Lune comes in a 39mm case featuring a thin, slightly sloped bezel and the signature Tonda tear-drop lugs. Water-resistance is of 30m. Inside the case is the extra-thin Parmigiani Fleurier PF708 calibre. This automatic movement is just 4mm in height, thanks to its compact construction incorporating a platinum micro-rotor. Ticking at 3Hz, it can store up to 48h of power reserve. Visible through the exhibition caseback the movement features hand-finished bridges and Geneva stripes.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 slate dial and rose gold is presented on a black alligator strap with a gold pin buckle. The watch retails for CHF 29,000 or USD 26,900. For more information, please visit www.parmigianifleurier.com.
