Dubbed the Tonda 1950 Tourbillion Double Rainbow, the timepiece comes at a very wearable 40.2mm case constructed out of 18k rose cold, measuring an extremely thin 9.4mm thick. Adorning the bezel are 40 multi-colored sapphires creating a rainbow effect, complemented by another 32 multi-colored sapphires surrounding the inner dial, just slightly off center to accommodate the flying tourbillon at 7 o’clock. The entire dial within is then covered in 572 pave-set clear and blue diamonds, working beautifully with the other 11 gold indices and skeletonized hands. Powering the watch itself is an in-house PF517 automatic movement, composed of 207 parts and 29 jewels. Holding a power reserve of 48 hours, the movement is only 3.4mm thick thanks to the use of a platinum micro-rotor as well as an integrated gear train within the mainplate. Completing the luxury piece is a handmade Hermès alligator strap.
For those interested, the Tonda 1950 Tourbillon Double Rainbow is now available over at Parmigiani Fleurier’s website, going for $178,000 USD.
For more rainbow-themed watches, Breitling has just launched its newest rainbow SuperOcean Heritage ‘57.
