Two years after its first launch, Parmigiani Fleurier is updating the aesthetic of the Tonda 1950 Lune with a model featuring a slate dial and a second design with round diamonds on the bezel.

Both showcase the “lunar calendar” complication which illuminates both dials with a new layout.

One design has a rose gold case matched with a slate colour dial while the lunar calendar, displaying the two hemispheres, is located at 10 o’clock instead of its previous position at 12 o’clock.

The offset layout balances the date at 3 o’clock, the logo at 1 o’clock, and the small seconds window at 6 o’clock.

The other design is the Tonda 1950 Lune with diamonds which also features a rose gold case, a mother of pearl dial.

Additional touches adorn the piece, such as the moon at 10 o’clock which is set in the middle of a starry sky, and the gold outline around the date window at 4 o’clock.

Lastly, the dial has been made smaller to accommodate a slightly broader bezel, allowing larger diamonds to be set within it.

The new Tonda 1950 Lune owes its slender proportions to its calibre, the PF708, a mechanism the brand says can combine precision and reliability with automatic winding thanks to its platinum micro-rotor.

Water resistant to 30m, straps are available in black for men and Ficelle, Red and indigo for women.

The Tonda 1950 Lune with slate dial retails for $26,900, while the one with diamonds retails for $34,400.
