This is the most extensive of all Parmigiani ranges. Meaning "round" in Italian, the Tonda Collection is a demonstration of the creativity of Parmigiani Fleurier. The simplicity of its round shape provides scope for experimentation to develop the brand's visual identity: slimming down the profile or playing with its volumes, adding a bezel or revealing the full extent of the dial; gem-setting, decoration or exploring a range of colours, the variations chosen for the Tonda Collection impact the aesthetic identity of Parmigiani timepieces in their entirety. The Tonda 1950, named after Michel Parmigiani's year of birth, returns to the brand's roots, revealing refined and classic lines on an ultra-thin model. The Tonda Métro adds a touch of modernity with its slender proportions and its palette of electric colours.
The Tonda Collection watch complications are also a point of reference, extending beyond the confines of the range itself – such as the ultra-thin tourbillon housed within the Tonda 1950 calibre or the integrated chronograph of the Tonda Chronor which were later applied to all the other product families. The Tonda Collection is both a testing ground and a launch pad for timepieces, originating from a team of designers and watch creators working hand in hand.
