"The name of this family of watches comes from the Venetian term 'Tondo', which refers to the round canvas on which Renaissance artists created magnificent works of art. In a way, our round Tonda range is that blank canvas which enables the individual to explore the many facets of the Parmigiani Fleurier aesthetic."
This is the largest of all the Parmigiani Fleurier ranges. Derived from the Italian word for "round", the Tonda collection is a demonstration of the creativity of Parmigiani Fleurier. The purity 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 potential 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 Fleurier 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 collection adds a touch of dynamism with its slender proportions and its palette of electric colours.
