Last weekend, as many of you who follow my social accounts have seen, I was a guest of one of the most important house of Swiss High watchmaking for a very exciting trip in Gstaad (Switzerland), a very exceptional destination in winter season.
Parmigiani Fleurier was founded in 1996 and today represents one of the most exclusive contemporary high watches brand worldwide. Its collections of watches today, from his excellent model Bugatti 370 (real wrist machine) as well as the most iconic Tonda 1950, are just a few examples of the high degree of craftsmanship, study and deep research conducted by this international house.
Parmigiani, in fact, with a clever balancing act, manage to translate shapes and very complex mechanical constructions in creations full charm and elegance.
My trip to Gstaad was the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, including the master Michel Parmigiani and the CEO Jean Marc Jacot to approach more closely to the lifestyle of the Swiss House.
Because to choose a brand today, in addition to select an extraordinary product that Parmigiani Fleurier represents certainly , also means sharing a philosophy of life that the brand promotes as its founding status.
Here I want to show a special selection of photos taken during the second day in Chateaux D’oex, places where takes place the international balloon festival which Parmigiani Fleurier is the main sponsor. One of the biggest thrills was in fact to fly surrounded by snow on snow-covered roofs of the huts, suspended in the air to aim an infinite horizon. Come down to ground, I enjoyed shooting wearing “Tonda metrographe” the new automatic steel watch of the house, that is equipped with an efficient chronograph embellished with leather straps by Hermès with a ardillon buckle closure and very elegant quadrants.
It’s a perfect timepiece to wear at any age, that following the leitmotiv of the house, combined with a unique heritage expresses all the daily luxury typical of our modernity.
In the next post the story continues, and this time it is set in a hotel with an amazing timepiece even more extraordinary …
Time is something we cannot challenge or to stop, and yet …
“Beauty is the only thing against which the power of the time cannot harm. What is beautiful is a joy for all seasons and a possession for all eternity.” – Oscar Wilde
Have a good vision!
