This Tonda 1950 watch series is a veritable explosion of design talent, featuring a collaboration between luxury timepiece designer Parmigiani Fleurier, Parisian boutique colette and renowned graffiti artist Andre Saraiva.

The watches take Parmigiani's iconic Tonda 1950 design and give it a modern update. Each one of the elegant timepieces features a theme of 'Love,' 'New York' or 'Paris.' The words are printed onto the watch's face in red and blue graffiti-like lettering. The Love watch has a bold, black crocodile skin strap, the New York edition has a vivacious red leather band and the Paris timepiece's band is done in cool blue with a snakeskin pattern.

These Tonda 1950 watches have a design that remains feminine and playful, while also introducing a bold element of edginess thanks to Andre Saraiva's graffiti designs.
