Parmigiani Fleurier presented firstly their Tonda Metro Collection in a very unique scenario, international bloggers from all over the world were invited to discover and attend Parmigiani Fleurier's exclusive press collection in partnership with the Musée de l'Eysee which is a worldwide renowned institution devoted entirely to photography. The Museé de l'Elysée holds over 100.000 prints and several highly prestigious photographic archives, in particular those of Ella Maillart, Charlie Chaplin and René Burri. Aside from the treasures of the past, nothing is more important than identifiying and nurturing the artists of the future. I was very delighted on the invite, because I am very passionate about photography and I was always interested in luxury watches and even more excited to get to know Parmigiani, the Tonda Metro Collection and the story behind.
We had a very warm welcome at our arrival in the Beau-Rivage Palace and I hope that you have seen my article dedicated to my stay named 'Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne'. So, as some of you might heard and probably passionate watch collectors know, the Fleurier produces luxury watches and created a more affordable 'basic' line, the Tonda Metro Collection, for the young working and metropolitan ladies and gent's generation who want to invest in exclusive and luxury watches. Jean-Marc Jacot, the CEO of Parmigiani introduced us to the companies changes, the history and to their new collection. They create 6.000 watches per year, they only use Hermés straps and leather bracelets, they are a total independent company, they are able to produce any single component of a watch and they work for 17 other watch companies in Switzerland. I found those facts very impressive.
Thanks to Carola from Vienna Wedekind, she captured that 'Sylvie starring at her phone' moment while I was busy en route on Instagram! Hihi!
