Parmigiani Tonda 1950 - Bleu Abyss
Parmigiani Fleurier is one of the rare modern Swiss watchmaking brands that is independent, a true manufacture, and maintains its own design language for its watches.
Started by Michel Parmigiani in 1996 after 20 years experience restoring old clocks and watches, currently Parmigiani creates less than 5,000 watches per year. Even with such a small output, it is innovating on all fronts and keeping a common look and feel to its watches.
While some of its models elicit polarizing opinions, one model seems to be wildly loved by all. It is my favorite model and one of my all time favorite dress watch: the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 blue Abyss
What distinguishes the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 is its slim 8.2 mm high and 40 mm wide case with teardrop-shaped lugs that snug the wrist like few modern watches do.
The simplicity of the dial matched with the odd and distinctive delta-shaped hands with the oval Parmigiani logo marking at 12 o’clock give it the unique simple look.
Powering the Tonda is a gorgeous in-house micro-rotor movement PF 702 that Parmigiani finishes by hand. The micro-rotor itself is adorned with a hand engraved nautilus-like pattern that makes it a charm to see as it spins. The sapphire caseback gives full view of the movement.
