At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2014 Swiss luxury watchmaker Parmigiani Fleurier presented his new Métro collection with a range of men's and women's watches, conceived for urbanites with a true metropolitan spirit.

The Métropolitaine watch for women and the Métrographe for men are best described as they adorn the wrists of busy city dwellers, as they live and breathe every minute of the day.

Both the men's and women's versions of this round steel timepiece are characterised by their long proportions, which confer elegance. The watches feature a modern, urban design which is more refined than the brand's other classics, and reminiscent of the Tonda 1950.On the Tonda Métropolitaine, feminine curves soften the piece's modern lines. The straight outline of the case (34 mm) finds its contrast in the dial, available in amarante, black or white mother-of-pearl. Diamond lovers can also choose for a diamond set bezel.

The Métro collection sees Parmigiani Fleurier introduce a new concept featuring straps and bracelets in leather and steel. The Hermès calfskin strap produces a very distinctive effect. Each version of the Tonda Métro is also available with a steel bracelet of remodelled design.
