Since its establishment in 1996, Parmigiani has created many amazing timepieces by virtue of the ultimate aesthetic design and the perfect watchmaking technology. Among them, the Tonda Collection (Tonda Collection) has become the brand’s highly respected series because of its simple and elegant aesthetic style, and the simple and elegant craftsmanship perfectly interprets the true meaning of fine watchmaking. In October 2019, Parmigiani released the new Tongda Series 1950 Tourbillon Galaxy Rainbow watch in Shanghai, which perfectly integrates Tongda series’ precise time and aesthetic craftsmanship, a new interpretation of the highest watchmaking craftsmanship from Fleurier To convey the spirit of brand culture to the world. The Tongda 1950 Tourbillon watch is equipped with an aventurine dial. The natural properties of this stone give the dial the same beautiful surname ‘Galaxy’ as the universe, which means ‘the Milky Way’. Aventurine is rich in fine metal impurities, so its structure is irregular, and it has a unique textured appearance. The midnight blue aventurine dial is covered with tiny white fragments, as if a little bit of starlight shines in the night sky. The bezel of the rose gold case is set with a selection of elongated cut diamonds, which are arranged according to their lightness and darkness, gradually showing a complete rainbow spectrum.

The Tongda 1950 Tourbillon Rainbow Watch has a simple body and clear lines. The overall aesthetic idea is derived from the theme of ‘7:08’. This is a tribute to the founder of the brand, Mr. Parmigiani, who was born at the moment in the Val-de-Travers valley in Switzerland. In the following decades, Mr. Parmigiani devoted himself to the repair and production of high-end watches, and made outstanding contributions to the inheritance and development of the watch industry.

This watch is equipped with the brand’s homemade PF517 movement, with the thickness of 3.4 mm among the world’s thinnest tourbillon movement. Also included in the 2019 GPHG (Geneva Watch Grand Prix) complex women’s watch competition unit. This technical masterpiece has taken up to two years of research and development. From design to production, designers, engineers and watchmakers have collaborated endlessly to breathe life into this slim masterpiece. The 950 platinum miniature oscillating weight winding the movement is a key component to achieve the ultra-thin characteristics of the PF517 movement. It is integrated directly into the main splint, so there is no extra layer thickness. From a design perspective, this breakthrough is undoubtedly striking. But at the same time, it also means a huge challenge: to integrate the miniature oscillating weight, barrel, tourbillon cage and central display system in the same main splint, it is necessary to make full use of the limited space. Many watchmaking companies solve this problem by offsetting the time display, but Parmigiani has a unique approach to arrange the movement components with extreme accuracy to ensure that the time display area is still in the center, and the tourbillon is offset at 07:08 Place to commemorate the birth of Mr. Michel Parmigiani. The titanium tourbillon cage weighing only 0.255 grams breaks the rules of traditional stainless steel materials, and uses a lighter weight and lower inertia titanium alloy to build the tourbillon cage, so that no torque is lost during the rotating movement. As a result, the efficiency of the tourbillon and the timing accuracy of the watch are improved.
