The creators of Parmigiani’s designers aim to make the timepiece vivid and unconventionally depict a musical scene like a literary work.
The guitar is a musical instrument with a natural connection to wood inlays. The designers decided to use the British flag and American flag patterns as the background inspiration for timepiece design, in order to pay tribute to these two most influential countries in rock music history. The tourbillon device of the Tonda watch is like the speaker of a guitar. The effect of the complex vibration of the tourbillon complex device seems to give the guitar a life. The ingenious connection between the two makes the music and watchmaking art merge into this.

Each dial that has been crafted with inlaying craftsmanship contains more than 50 pieces of dyed wood, the result of 10 days of hard work. These woods are designed, cut, and assembled to the best of their ability to reach a smooth surface that appears to the naked eye.

Tonda Tourbillon’s two models are named Tonda Woodrock (UK version) and Tonda Woodstock (US version)-these two self-contained models are a perfect example of sound and sound, they use extraordinary watchmaking techniques Music without borders.

Mosaic art
Mosaic work is a respectable ancient art that is no longer common in life.
The process of inlaying is mainly to cut out some inlays on the wooden plane and assemble them to create extremely delicate decorative effects. Inlay craftsmen are often trained as furniture technicians. They are hardworking and precise. From the initial sketches on paper to the creation of spectacular mosaics that can subvert the original design-the many high-tech processes of mosaic art are well known.
The work of mosaic craftsmen began with the original design of Lintong, and they used a special tool (Rotring drawing pen) to carefully draw each element. This copying work is the basis of the mosaic work, from which the size and contour of each design block can be determined.

Next, inlay craftsmen reprint ten or more design drawings on paper, and they will use these drawings to cut out different design blocks. In preparing for this critical cutting stage, the craftsman selects the wood, the selection criteria relate to the color and surface of the wood, and then piles the 10 carefully selected woods together. The wood is firmly nailed together with nails, and then the copy map to be processed is glued to the top of the pile of wood. Use a saw blade to carefully cut along the boundary of the copy image to obtain 10 wooden blocks with the same shape. Even if all that is needed is a wooden block, the inlay craftsman always cuts it with a pile of wood, and then only keeps the most successful cut of the 10 blocks. Every design block has to go through this process. Even if there is only a slight difference between each design block, each block must be cut according to this set of procedures. There are as many different woods as there are differences. Blocks and how many different colors.

Once the last block is cut, there seems to be no more complicated procedures. At this time, the craftsman will start to assemble the design block. However, even this last step is not easy, and often there are unexpected ‘surprises’. Although the entire process strictly follows the dimensions, when the block assembly stage is reached, the craftsman may still find very small errors or small eye-catching cracks, so the entire work is ruined. The craftsman must start from scratch and patiently copy and cut again as needed.

In the work of mosaic work, we must insist on and be precise. Even the smallest details must be carefully considered, and we must not forget to take the overall situation into consideration. Everything is revealed at the last minute because of the results of the mosaic work. At this time, each block is perfectly embedded in its own position and plays its role as part of the whole.
