>To create these stunning and statement-making dials, Parmigiani Fleurier Watch Review Replica Fleurier use a technique which needs falling “Aventurine,” which is a hybrid copper and glass material, into the midnight blue dial creating what seems like celebrities — hence, “Galaxy.” Personally, I find this decoration interesting with a nearly poetic charm, and I’m excited to find these additional versions brandishing the unique technique.If the dial seems familiar, that’s because two decades ago, Parmigiani Fleurier introduced the original Tonda 1950 Galaxy Set, which arrived on a glossy black leather strap with a diamond bezeled rose gold case. Though the Tonda 1950 Galaxy Gold Bracelet may bear a brand new reference number, it’s the same watch as before with the star of the series being the brand new slick solid rose gold bracelet with folding clasp. While I don’t necessarily need to spend too much time delving into the technical details of a view we covered (you can read all about it in the link above), the addition of this bracelet gives this watch a far more handsome look.Personally, I was not a massive fan of this glossy leather contained in the initial run and feel the gold brushed center links with polished borders on the bracelet match the watch better. The diamond studded polished case measures in at 39mm using a slender 8.4mm thickness, carries a .65 carat weight, and includes a sapphire caseback (we will post images as they become available) — displaying the Côtes de Genève decorated PF702 in-house motion. Water resistance is pretty standard for a dress watch at 30m.
