Parmigiani is by far one of the many prestigious amongst luxury watch brands. The brand was established in 1996 at the heart of the Val-de-Travers in Switzerland. The founder Michel Parmigiani with the help of the Sandoz family foundation resulted in a shared vision for upholding the highest quality Swiss expertise.
I would like to present to you some of the timepieces from the Parmigiani Tonda collection
Parmigiani Tonda White Gold Skeleton Graphite Watch
A Swiss made 42mm white gold case with an automatic movement, scratch resistant crystal glass and water resistant to 30 metres. The timepiece features a 55 hour power reserve and is made up of 220 components including 32 jewels. The watch is housed with a fabulous 18 – carat white gold case and is attached to a black alligator leather strap.
The most distinctive feature of this watch is the very detailed skeleton dial. This really is a stunning piece with many elements. A watch which is probably not for everyday wear but a lot more for a special occasion.
Parmigiani Tonda 1950 White Gold Grained White Dial Classic Watch
This Swiss made watch has a 39mm 18 carat white gold case with a scratch resistant sapphire glass and water resistant to 30 metres. The case is attached to a black leather strap with an ardillon buckle.
A much more simple design from the Tonda collection housed with a grained effect white dial and white gold hands. It also features delta-shaped, luminescent hands and has a simple, classic appearance. This piece is definitely to be paired with smart wear and to a special occasion.
Parmigiani Tonda Tourbillion Rose Fold Silver Dial Watch
This Tourbillion piece from the Parmigiani Tonda collection has a power reserve display, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and is water resistant to 30 metres. This piece has a 30 second tourbillion and is made up of 237 components containing 30 jewels. The rose gold case is attached to a leather strap which features an ardillon buckle.
This is a piece that you would plan to buy as an investment coming at a price of over £180,000. The detail on the dial is absolutely stunning on this piece and it really makes this stand out from the rest of the collection.
