Parmigiani Fleurier has released a preview of their new Tonda 1950 Squelette that will be officially debuted at SIHH 2015, in January. The men’s Tonda 1950 skeleton watch comes in a 39 mm x 7.8 mm white gold case and is powered by automatic manufacture caliber PF 705, which is a skeletonized version of caliber PF 701.

The skeleton and non-skeleton versions (which we review here), both measure 7.8 mm thick, thanks to the 2.6 mm movement. Moreover, a platinum micro-rotor provides the convenience of self-winding, without obstructing the view of the main plate, bridges and components – which are, of course, finished to Parmigiani Fleurier’s ultra high standards.

In addition to the white gold men’s model, there is also a ladies’ rose gold version with a frosted dial and diamond studded bezel. Both Tonda 1950 Squelette timepieces are paired with a Hermes alligator strap, brown or black depending on the model.
