THE TONDA METRO SPECIAL EDITION LUISA VIA ROMA
Today, as Parmigiani Fleurier inaugurates its partnership with Luisa Via Roma in Florence, we are happy to present a special edition of Tonda Métro watches that have been created to reflect this alliance and the exclusive spirit of luxury on which the Florentine brand's success is built.
This edition comprises the Tonda Métrographe men's and Tonda Métropolitaine women's models, and marries the urban modernity of this collection with the captivating allure of the fashion world.
These two watches take their aesthetic inspiration from chevron braiding. In this technique, the interlacing of leather produces a pattern of triangles that fit together in an inverted configuration to create a regular and harmonious surface with a singular relief. The chevron evokes the craft of weaving, as well as the world of leather goods and fashion. In addition, it reflects the visual codes of Luisa Via Roma (the Florentine brand's emblem is a triangle).
The Tonda Métro Special Edition has a chevron braided leather strap whose inverted triangle motif extends to the dial to ensure perfect aesthetic continuity of the piece as a whole.
The men's Tonda Métrographe is dressed in tones of dark blue and black. A contrast is achieved on the dial thanks to a galvanic treatment and a brushing/sanding technique to define triangular lines.
The women's Tonda Métropolitaine features light and extremely feminine tones – mother of pearl, sand-blasted opaline – complemented by the case setting.
The Tonda Métro Luisa Via Roma Special Edition builds a bridge between the worlds of watchmaking and fashion. It represents a coming together of two brands operating in distinct spheres of activity, linked by their values and harnessing the power of their differences.
