Parmigiani Fleurier is dedicated to uphold the traditional arts and crafts of Swiss watch making. However, its adherence to the ancient and celebrated Swiss heritage of excellence and precision is the only thing conventional about the brand. Everything else about Parmigiani Fleurier is revolutionary. The latest addition to its creative feats is a collection of musical pieces in wood and marquetry. The artful wooden dial of the iconic Tonda Tourbillion model comprises more than fifty pieces of dyed wood. Ingenious Parmigiani Fleurier turned the turbillion into a guitar sound box backdropped by the famous Union Jack and Stars and Stripes. The choice of design is a tribute to the two most influential countries in rock and roll history. Parmigiani's Tonda Woodrock (with the British Union Jack) and Tonda Woodstock (with the U.S. banner) display the Swiss watch maker's acumen in horlogerie design and calibre. Check out these fresh designs that celebrate music, arts and Swiss watches at Shreve & Co. in Portland Oregon - authorized dealer of Parmigiani Fleurier.
