Parmigiani Fleurier has added diamonds to Tonda Automatic only for the time being to create the brightest model in watch maker’s recently updated Tonda collection.
Although not an extension of the particularly new, widely acclaimed Tonda PF collection, the new offers enhance the extensive Tonda collection by debuting its first complete gem-set models.

Focusing on the watchmaker’s trademark barricorn-pattern dial, the dial of each watch in this new model is set entirely with diamonds that follow distinctive lines of pattern, which really sets this gem series apart from other shiny updates we’ve seen recently.
The new watches, 36mm by 3.9mm and the case in rose gold or white gold, are meant to be a “pure tribute to feminine elegance,” according to Permigiani Flurier. The watchmaker explained that his craftsmen had set more than a thousand high-quality diamonds of different sizes on dials, cases and bezels. And unusually, each dial displays gems that are specially set to create a light-reflecting sparkle in the signature barleycorn pattern, known as the Grain D’Orge motif.

According to Permigiani Flurier, the setting process involves highlighting the grain d’orze pattern with a diamond “snow” setting that uses diamonds of seven different diameters, set in a very limited space on a fine patterned gold dial.
On each dial, you will see light reflected and reflected from 979 bright cut diamonds. The bezels and logs are set with an additional seventy bright-cut diamonds. The craftsmen did not forget the crown, which was adorned with a cabochon on a white opal, a blue sapphire on a white gold model, or a white opal on a white opal.
Inside, the Parmigiani Fleurier’s PF310 caliber fits a 50-hour power reserve and boasts a swaying weight in 22-carat rose gold and engraved in the same Tonda Signature Grain d’Org Guilloche ‘pattern. Hermes makes an alligator leather strap for the watch, a blue strap for the Tonda Auto White Gold and a brown / gray strap for the Tonda Automatic Rose Gold. Price: CHF 59,000.
