Demonstrating the world of musical art with the use of a guitar, an instrument with natural links to wood marquetry, the two watches pay homage to two of the most noteworthy countries in world music. British version Tonda Woodrock and the American version Tonda Woodstock features Union Jack or the US Stars and Stripes as the background respectively.

10 days of work goes into each hand crafted dial which consists of more than fifty pieces of dyed wood. Bastien Chevalier, a marquetry artist designs and assembles the dial creating an incredible art piece.
