Tonda Tourbillon

Tonda Woodstock

The idea dreamt up by the Parmigiani Fleurier designers was to depict a musical scene which was not static and conventional, as literal representations often are.

The guitar is an instrument with natural links to wood marquetry, and it was decided to use the Union Jack and the Stars and Stripes as the backdrops in this tableau paying homage to the two most influential countries in the history of rock and roll.

The Tonda’s tourbillon becomes the sound box of the guitar, music and the watchmaking art become one and the instrument comes to life through the regular oscillations of the complication.
