PARMIGIANI – Tonda 1950 Édition Spéciale colette

Colette on Rue Saint-Honoré has become a destination in Paris since opening in 1997. The concept store bursts with different worlds and hosted one of the first exhibitions by graffiti artist André Saraiva, a.k.a. Monsieur A, in 2002. When Le Baron nightspot opened in 2005, the artist reinvented himself as a Paris club owner. Parmigiani has drunk in his aura and used his talent to adorn 11 white gold Tonda 1950 watches. What do they have in common? Aside from their self-winding movement, Paris, Love and New York are decorated with the artist’s signature font in blue and red on the dials. This limited edition, exclusively available from colette, plays on colour combinations and materials. The straps (shagreen or boa), made by L’Atelier du Bracelet Parisien, a nod to the City of Light, echo the nuances of graffiti and the black, blue or white lacquer dials. Price: 23,300 € (diamond “Paris” watch) – 19,900 €. Dan Diaconu
