Parmigiani Fleurier proves that there is no such thing as too many diamonds

Fans of the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 will have another favourite to add to their collection. Introducing the Tonda 1950 Clarity, the latest addition to the Tonda line will mesmerise you with the array of diamonds that adorn the dial and bezel.

Telling time with a dial that features 620 diamonds in five different sizes is not something we would complain about. From the size of the carat to its exact position on the dial, each diamond was selected with meticulous calculation. Starting in the middle with smaller diamonds, the size gradually increases (radiating out from the centre) before ending with smaller diamonds again at the periphery. The final result, which started with numerous sketches, is a fluid ripple of spectacular elegance.


Framing the 39mm face is a bezel that sparkles with 84 white diamonds. With the use of the trompe l'oeil effect, you would be forgiven in thinking that the timepiece is domed. This visual illusion makes the eye perceive the two-dimensional dial design as a three-dimensional object.


Sleek and sophisticated, the Tonda 1950 Clarity is available in 18 carat red gold paired with a matching metal link bracelet, or white gold paired with either a plain or stamped calfskin strap.
