Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 Clarity

This high-jewellery interpretation of the Tonda 1950 boasts a sparkling gem-set dial inside the diamond studded gold case.

Five different sizes were chosen for the round diamonds that adorn the dial. Their dimensions and position are the result of meticulous calculation. The framework design evolved through a series of sketches to achieve the perfect softness in the transition between the stones, with the smallest at the centre, followed by larger ones, and smaller ones outside bordering the indices.
Each diamond has been carefully considered in order to play its part in a spectacular ensemble, in which the dial appears domed thanks to a beguiling trompe l’oeil effect. The stones shimmer in a unique, almost violent way; such is the brilliance of the light reflected from them. This complex and intensely vibrant structural concept is yet another example of Parmigiani Fleurier’s innovative might. 620 diamonds (totalling 2.495 carats) were used to decorate the dial and 84 (totalling 0.6460 carats) for the bezel.

The Tonda 1950 Clarity with rose gold case is available with a bracelet with links of the same metal, for a highly sophisticated ensemble. Parmigiani Fleurier has paired the white gold version with a mother of pearl calfskin strap.
