Parmigiani’s new Tonda 1950 Rose gold Meteorite follows on from the limited edition unveiled at the SIHH 2015 with a titanium middle.

Unpolished, irregular and fragmented – such are the characteristics of a meteorite. Yet, it is this captivating rock that forms the dial of Parmigiani's new rose gold Tonda 1950.
 Every step involved in working with meteor rock is a delicate process. It is difficult to machine as it is harder than normal rock; as its mineral structure is unpredictable and varying, conventional processes cannot be used.

The Tonda 1950 possess’ the ultra-thin PF 701 calibre which owes its slim dimensions to an eccentric platinum micro-oscillating weight, housed within the confines of the movement. Measuring just 2.6 mm thick, this feat of watchmaking prowess ensures this family of timepieces deserves its place in the ultra-thin collection.

The Tonda 1950 in the titanium version was presented last year during the SIHH 2015 and is now matched with rose gold. The timepiece is equipped with a blue alligator strap and an ardillon buckle.
