April 23, 2014, Shanghai-The pulse of the city is beating continuously, witnessing the inheritance and evolution of human civilization. Parmigiani captures the breath of the modern metropolis, and has launched the Tonda Métro series, which is specially designed for urban men and women. The new Tonda Métro series debuted in Geneva’s Haute Horlogerie International Salon, and has now arrived in China: Along with the accustomed evening breeze, the release of Parmigiani’s new Tonda Métro series was launched at M’s Western Restaurant on the Bund (M on the Bund).
Urban life is intense and busy. The never-ending city carries our dreams and passions, contemplation and tenderness. The charm of the metropolis exudes eternal charm for its infinite possibilities. Independent and free, Parmigiani has always been exploring and expressing the generosity of life, just like the men and women in the city. Parmigiani listens carefully and captures the voices of urban travellers who are unwilling to mediocre, and has launched the new Tonda Métro series, which pays tribute to the urban men and women who keep making progress in the city and the never-ending urban spirit.
The Tonda Métrographe men’s watch adopts a new design concept that combines classic and modern. The unique and asymmetrical lug design has created the unique mystery of the Tonda Métro series. I look forward to seeing wisdom. Seen from the left, the iconic teardrop-shaped lugs form an elegant, quiet traditional style outline; from the right, the teardrop-shaped lugs turn into a smooth wave, almost covering the entire case, embracing the men’s watch Button on the timer function. Such an ingenious design is like life and work. Occasionally breaking the rules can get unexpected results. The minute and hour dials on the dial together form an inclined ‘8’ shape-a symbol representing ‘infinity’, shining in the dark. The clock hands are turning endlessly, seemingly infinite, but they constantly remind us to grasp every moment of time.
The Tonda Métropolitaine ladies watch is the first small watch of Parmigiani’s Tonda Métro series specially launched for women. The feminine radians add a soft touch to the modern lines of the watch, like the unique temperament of urban women who are strong and hidden. 72 brilliant diamonds are tightly wrapped around the specially-designed 34mm small-diameter case to set off the soft lines of the women’s wrist. The red and black dials are decorated with ‘flinqué’ ripples, and the romantic ripples are extraordinary charm. The mother-of-pearl dial exudes an intoxicating light, mysterious and elegant. The small seconds dial is surrounded by a delicate gold ring, and its matte effect contrasts with the large dial, which highlights the eye-catching brilliance of the entire watch.
Métrographe men’s watches and Métropolitaine women’s watches are cleverly designed to create a perfect match.
The bold and innovative spirit extends from the Tonda Métro watch itself to the strap and bracelet. The edges of the gorgeous Hermes leather straps are decorated with contrasting colors and polished in bright colors. The contrasting color concept makes each strap unique and outstanding. Tonda Métro’s stainless steel bracelet has a slimmer, narrower and smoother appearance, giving it a more pleasing case look.
What day will you spend wearing a Tonda Métro watch and traveling through the city’s tall buildings? Parmigiani’s press conference presented a live interpretation, showing a typical day of the urban people in a smart way: men wearing Tonda Métrographe watches walking in a crowd of office workers, hurrying. From time to time, he stopped to look up at the towering skyscrapers, or looked down at the Tonda Métrographe watch on his wrist, thinking. The young woman set off in the morning light, with a full itinerary, determined to see the beauty of the city. Her figure constantly shuttled between buildings and streets, and the hands of Ms. Tonda Métropolitaine watch on her wrist turned round and round, but her footsteps were getting farther and farther from the planned journey. After thinking about it, the men continued their daily busy work, and the women did not miss any real beauty. The only difference was that they all discovered the hidden beauty in the urban life represented by the Tonda Métro series. And the creative ‘jump’ photography session is to let guests hold giant Parmigiani-style Arabic numerals and timepieces in front of the same huge Tonda Métro case outline, improvising various creative poses, Parma Gianni’s dedicated photographer left this unforgettable, modern and joyful time.
Constant exploration and innovation has always been the philosophy of the Parmigiani brand. Ms. Shan Wei, Chief Executive Officer of Parmigiani, said: ‘The Tonda Métro series tailored for urban people has subtle design details, such as unique asymmetrical lugs and a new small-diameter design for women’s watches. All reflect Parmigiani’s unique understanding of the urban spirit, vitality, vitality, diversity and enterprising. The rapid development of Chinese cities and the rising urban population, I believe that the extraordinary taste of Parmigiani’s Tonda Métro series will also be affected. Loved by urban men and women aged 25-40. Parmigiani also has a consistent confidence in the Chinese market and hopes that the Tonda Métro series will add style to the busy people in the city and always accompany the city and urban people on their journey. ‘- —
