Subtle elegance is the overarching theme of Parmigiani Fleurier’s Tonda 1950 Diamond-Set Mother of Pearl design. The latest extra-flat stone-set model from the contemporary Swiss watchmaker finds a new dimension of horlogerie refinement. The rose or white gold 39-millimeter case falls nowhere short of grandeur in its bezel’s 84 brilliant cut diamonds and sleek feminine profile. The dial is an even more stunning display. Two optional shades of mother pearl provide a rare and sophisticated backdrop to the watch’s restrained delta hands and appliqué indexes. Whether it is the Tahitian grey or the white mother of pearl, the dial’s iridescent sheen breathes vitality into the whole timepiece. All the watch’s 145 components, including the PF 7 automatic movement driven by a micro-oscillating weight in intricately decorated platinum, are masterfully crafted and pieced together in Parmigiani Fleurier’s independent, verticalized watchmaking center. Check out this deliberately scaled-down and highly functional timepiece from the maker of elegance itself.
