Two years after the appearance of the first Tonda 1950 wristwatch with a “romantic” complication in the form of a lunar phase indicator, the brand from Fleurieu decided to add new touches to the design of the men’s model. Parmigiani masters gave the dial asymmetry, as well as additionally introduced a female model created according to similar canons.

In both cases, the diameter of the rounded case made of 18-carat rose gold is 39 millimeters with a thickness of 9.6 millimeters. However, the original design of the front side of these luxury watches allows you to determine the future owner of the timepiece accurately.

Thus, the male version got a dark grey (slate) dial with a double (the Northern and Southern hemispheres) moon phase indicator placed at the 10-o’clock position, a date indicator around 3 o’clock, and slightly recessed small seconds dial at 6 o’clock.

At the same time, on the mother-of-pearl dial of timepiece, framed by a bezel with 48 diamonds of traditional cut weighing 1.82 carats, the indicator of lunar phases is executed more laconically. As for the date window, it has acquired a somewhat playful shape and was shifted to the position between 3 and 4 o’clock.

And if the male version comes with a strict black strap manufactured of alligator skin, the female one is equipped with several colored straps of the same quality – blue, red and burgundy.

Inside, there is a thin automatic caliber PF708 with a platinum micro-rotor and a power reserve of 48 hours. The decoration of the latter is executed manually with a significant textured Côtes de Genève polishing.
