The Tonda 1950 family is expanding with a moon phase complication and a contemporary look, designed for men searching for sophistication with a touch of originality. The design of the Tonda 1950 returns to the brand's fundamental visual identity, which it highlights with its pure lines – now completed with a moon phase.
The Tonda 1950 is the aesthetic essence of Parmigiani Fleurier as it showcases all the brand's signature codes – and nothing else. The thin, slender profile with the two emblematic lugs; the cut round crown; the delta-shaped hands. Each of these aesthetic details form Parmigiani Fleurier's DNA and its instantly identifiable visual structure. The Tonda 1950 reveals them in their simplest form.
The PF708 calibre integrates a moon phase module into the manufacture's ultra-thin automatic movement with micro-rotor. The double moon phase display – which corresponds to the moon as seen from the Northern and Southern Hemispheres – is indicated at 12 o'clock on the dial. This is a contemporary version of this variety of calendar, which is very popular with connoisseurs.
When designing this watch and its details, Michel Parmigiani studied the simple and harmonious forms found in the natural world which surrounds us. The Tonda 1950 reinterprets these inspirations. It evokes simplicity, yet each of its proportions has been carefully calculated to create a harmonious, elegant and consistent whole that draws in the gaze. Its steel case and black opaline dial evoke the brilliance of a celestial body and highlight the watch's main complication. The Tonda 1950 is a contemporary yet timeless marvel that gives pride of place to the Earth's infinitely fascinating satellite.
At just 4 mm thick, the PF708 movement owes its slim profile to an off-centred micro-rotor directly integrated into the main plate. This component winds the movement, which has an autonomy of 48 hours. The moon phase module is added to the standard calibre, retaining its finesse, never casting doubt on the Tonda 1950 Lune's status as an ultra-thin piece.
