The Métro Collection is the first PARMIGIANI-FLEURIER watch whose lines and essence embody the spirit and magic of the world's great cities, their inhabitants and the frenetic pace that governs their movements.
This round steel timepiece is characterized by its long proportions, which confer elegance. The watch features a modern, urban design which is more refined than the brand's other classics, and reminiscent of the Tonda 1950. The calibre 3000 movement and its housing have been designed with extreme precision to produce a slim, refined case middle.
The subtlety of the Métro collection - a slight imbalance which gives it its character - comes from the fact that watch is asymmetrical: it has two different profiles. Its left-hand profile, which is devoid of a crown, is the classic, conventional side, and displays the brand's iconic teardrop shape. By contrast, its right-hand profile features elongated lugs that extend to the crown, reaching around it to envelop the chronograph push buttons.
This asymmetry confers on the watch its subtly stylish identity; a touch of modernity that overturns conventions.
