Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 Galaxy

The Tonda 1950 Galaxy is a sparkling horology creation that takes inspiration from the star studded night sky of Val-de-Travers, where Parmigiani Fleurier is based. The extremely talented dial-makers of Parmigiani Fleurier have worked their magic on the Tonda 1950 Galaxy, imbuing its aventurine glass dial with the sombre midnight blue colour that seems to have been cut straight from the night sky.
Crushed then recomposed, aventurine glass contains copper inclusions which give it an unmistakable sparkle, like infinite particles of gold. The gaze is drawn to this starlit sky, showcased by the bezel and case set with diamonds, forming a halo of light around it. On the crown, a milky white opal, like a precious miniature nebula, provides the finishing touch.
The Tonda 1950 Galaxy is driven by the PF702 proprietary movement, decorated with Côtes de Genève and bevelled bridges. This self-winding mechanical movement and its beautiful finishes can be admired through the watch's sapphire case-back. The case and the appliques are made from rose gold. This special edition comes with a black Hermès alligator strap.
