The Tonda 1950 Galaxy

november 01, 2017

Parmigiani Fleurier introduces a watch featuring a dial that shimmers with a thousand stars. It invites the viewer to lose himself in the representation of a galaxy.

To create the Tonda 1950 Galaxy, the dialmakers resorted to a material created by a chance encounter: aventurine glass. In 18th-century Murano, a glass blower made a fortuitous discovery when he dropped a sliver of copper into melted glass. He christened this new material "aventurine" (per aventura meaning by chance in Italian).

Crushed then recomposed, aventurine glass contains copper inclusions which give it an unmistakable sparkle, like infinite particles of gold. The gaze is drawn to the starlit sky of the Tonda 1950 Galaxy, showcased by the bezel and case set with diamonds, forming a halo of light around it. This special edition comes with a solid gold bracelet.
