Round diamonds or an explosion of rainbow colours
 
Dubai, UAE, March 13, 2019:  Parmigiani Fleurier presents a new stone-set Tonda 1950 range, one which offers extraordinary brilliance. The round diamonds of the Tonda 1950 Stone-set and the precious stones of the Tonda 1950 Rainbow illuminate Parmigiani Fleurier's revamped ultra-thin women's watch.
 
THE SETTING OF DIAMONDS AND PRECIOUS STONES
 
The new Tonda 1950 for women has a large bezel, reducing the area of the dial and providing a broader surface on which to set the precious stones. No fewer than 51 round diamonds adorn the edge of the watch, totalling 1.82 carats. Thanks to their size and purity, these diamonds create a spectacular play of light. The Tonda 1950 Rainbow features 36 baguette-cut stones selected and arranged according to their precise shade to gradually recreate the entire spectrum of a rainbow. This version features twenty-one sapphires in shades of pink, blue, yellow and orange, three rubies, six tsavorites and six amethysts, with a total weight of 3.73 carats.
 
DIAL VARIANTS
 
The rose gold case on the new model is complemented by one of three dials. The Tonda 1950 set with diamonds features a dial in Abyss blue – one of the brand's signature colours – a pinkish pearl colour, or a white mother-of-pearl with a rich, reflective texture. The Tonda 1950 Rainbow is exclusively available with a white mother-of-pearl dial.  The logo, understated and slightly larger, stands out at 12 o'clock whilst remaining in keeping with the delicate dial design. The delta-shaped hands are skeletonised with a gilded outline which echoes the rose gold-plated indices.
 
STREAMLINED, TIMELESS AESTHETIC
 
The Tonda 1950 boasts the quintessential Parmigiani Fleurier aesthetic. The iconic profile with 4 round lugs making it an ergonomic piece to wear; the quest for a harmony between the proportions of each element of the dial and case; the delta-shaped hands and cut crown – all signs of the elegance inherent to the brand's DNA. Remarkably, the Tonda 1950 Stone-set and Rainbow remain ultra-thin models, despite their richly stone-set bezels. These slender proportions are made possible by the PF701 calibre which measure just 2.6 mm thick.
 
PF701 CALIBRE
 
The movement that drives the Tonda 1950 Stone-set and Rainbow owes its thickness of just 2.6 mm to an off-centred micro-rotor directly integrated into the main plate. This component winds the movement, which has an autonomy of 42 or 48 hours. This calibre was originally developed to allow for the addition of multiple functions without altering the slender proportions of the Tonda 1950 family — for example, a calendar or moon phase indication which could subsequently enrich the collection. This serves as proof of the excellent design of this movement and its successive variations.
 
PARMIGIANI FLEURIER
 
Taking its name from its founder, watchmaker and restorer Michel Parmigiani, the fine watchmaking brand was founded in 1996 in Fleurier, in the Swiss valley of Val-de-Travers. With its own watchmaking centre ensuring its independence, the brand has both full control over the production process and unique creative freedom. For over twenty years, the Parmigiani Fleurier signature has resided within timepieces that command the utmost respect, in harmony with watchmaking traditions. They are the labour of a lifetime – that of Michel Parmigiani, the talented individuals who assist him, and the special relationship between the Manufacture and the masterpieces of the past, enabling it to invent a bold future.
