REVIEW: PARMIGIANI TONDA 1950 WHITE METEORITE DIAL
Truly handsome timepiece, with an impressive ultra thin movement that is pleasantly well-finished. Value should be given to the level of craftsmanship required to pull off the delicately thin white meteorite dial.
Case may feel on the wider side for some wrists, in essence due to the lugs extending beyond the main case.
Parmigiani released their latest Tonda 1950 variation at SIHH, now with a white meteorite dial. The elegant dress watch has a slim profile, complete with an attractive looking movement.
The Parmigiani Tonda 1950 is crafted in titanium. Measuring 7.97 mm in thickness and 39 mm in diameter, the watch is arguably in the ultra thin category yet with generous proportions on the dial side. Easily recognized is its iconic lugs design, which can be interpreted as a cross between a cow horn and tear drop lugs but with lesser tapering. Sapphire crystal is used both on the front and back, with anti-reflective treatment on the dial side crystal.
