Reading Time: 5 minutes

The Tonda Automatic, newly presented with a fully-paved diamond Grain d’Orge or barleycorn dial setting, shines with powerful simplicity. This beautiful jewelry watch is a refined tribute to feminine elegance. This is the message that Parmigiani Fleurier wants this creation to embody for those who appreciate beauty with essential substance.

The Tonda Automatic fully paved with diamonds was designed as a painter would imagine filling his canvas using the technique of pointillism (a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of colour are applied in patterns to form an image). Parmigiani Fleurier draws with diamonds using more than a thousand diamonds of different sizes to adorn the dial and the case. All these precious stones certified F-G color and VVS, an exceptional and rare standard of quality in the industry, bring the signature Grain d’Orge motif to life.

The clear and harmonious lines of the Parmigiani Tonda Automatic in 18 ct rose gold or 18 ct white gold instantly reveal its dial, which captures the eye. This unique diamond setting that follows the distinctive lines of the barleycorn pattern, is in no way comparable to the usual.

Inspired by the Grain d’Orge motif, which is now one of the strongest aesthetic signatures of Parmigiani Fleurier on its guilloché dials, the Maison chose to translate it through a complete diamond setting evoking the motif. This was a difficult challenge indeed, as it involved highlighting the Grain d’Orge pattern with a diamond “snow” setting that uses diamonds of seven different diameters, set in a very limited space on the finely patterned gold dial.

Delicate Composition

Each of the two gold versions boasts a total of 979 brilliant-cut diamonds set on the dial, thus forming a delicate composition evoking fine waves undulating over the large dial surface which highlights the complexity of the diamond setter’s work carried out on the piece. The bezel and the lugs are also set with a total of 70 brilliant-cut diamonds. The crown is finally adorned with a cabochon in either blue sapphire on the white gold model, or white opal on the rose gold model.

Beauty is achieved in just the right proportions for this 36 mm-diameter jewellery watch, which is at once very formal in its appearance yet elegantly discrete. Inside is an automatic-winding manufacture movement expertly crafted within Parmigiani Fleurier’s watchmaking centres. The PF310 calibre is equipped with a 50-hour power reserve and an oscillating weight in 22 ct rose gold engraved with a corresponding Grain d’Orge guilloché pattern. The elegant alligator leather strap, in blue for the 18 ct white gold version and in grey for the 18 ct rose gold version, is made by the French luxury expert Hermès.
