Demonstrating its mastery of haute horology and elegance, Parmigiani Fleurier unveils the most stunning Tonda Tourbillon wristwatches (and a table clock0 with beautiful marquetry dials that celebrate the spirit of music. The ancient process of marquetry consist of cutting hundreds of tiny pieces of wood veneer and assembling them on a flat dial surface to render a mosaic of color, design and art. Each Tonda is different, but both are astounding daring. The Tonda Woodrock and the Tonda Woodstock feature the guitar on their dials, with either the Union Jack or the US Stars and Stripes in the background. The tourbillon escapement of the exceptional Parmigiani movement is the guitar’s sound box.
Each marquetry dial takes 10 days of work to complete, and each comprises more than fifty pieces of dyed wood. These have been designed, cut and then assembled with such meticulous care that the resulting dial appears perfectly flat to the naked eye. The Tonda Woodrock, the British version, and Tonda Woodstock, the American version, are each unique – celebrating the culture of music through exceptional watchmaking.
