Parmigiani Fleurier presents a Tonda 1950 Steel: an ultra-thin everyday watch

Tonda 1950 Steel
The Tonda 1950 Steel is available with a black or silver-coloured dial

The signature elegant aesthetics of the Tonda 1950 is the reason why this model has become a brand bestseller. Its success is due to a combination of its dynamic design and its ultra-thin proprietary PF702 movement of 2.6 mm with micro-rotor. Such a piece can only be offered by an expert watch brand, one with mastery of everything from the design and manufacture of each component, to the accuracy and reliability of the mechanism, to optimal winding of the movement within an especially compact space.

As his standard practice at Parmigiani Fleurier, and one of its hallmarks, this manufacture movement boasts hand-applied finishes. Furthermore, the PF702 movement features the ‘Côtes de Genève’ decoration on its sublime structure. It is equipped with a generous 48-hour power reserve. Parmigiani Fleurier decided to increase the scope of this piece by offering it in a material which is urban and contemporary, yet practical. Steel was the natural choice.26

The 40 mm case of the Tonda 1950 Steel sets it apart. Although only slightly larger than the 39 mm diameter of the gold model, the difference is significant and can be appreciated with the naked eye. Its lugs are straight, and slightly concave, harking back to the aesthetics of the Tonda 39 Qualité Fleurier. The Tonda 1950 Steel is available with a black or silver-coloured dial, which features an external minute track, with a similar track on the seconds counter. This is clearly designed to make the indications easier to read, perfect for a watch intended for frequent use. Finally, the Tonda 1950 Steel features a steel folding buckle which can be set in different positions, ensuring optimum comfort for the wearer.
