Haute horology company Parmigiani Fleurier has tapped into the recent rainbow watch trend, following in the footsteps of Rolex and Breitling to craft its very own incredibly luxurious offering.

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.
