Parmigiani Montreux Jazz Festival Global Partner

The 49th annual Montreux Jazz Festival has a strong lineup, lively luxury, and is a hall of truly extraordinary art.

Parmigiani in Montreux
   Since 2007, Parmigiani has collaborated with the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival (MJF). In 2015, Parmigiani became a ‘Global Partner’ of the Montreux Jazz Festival, and the brand’s commitment to the festival has since reached a new level-this title is in the Montreux Jazz Festival Partner Sponsorship Structure The highest level reflects the unique contribution of Parmigiani. Today, Parmigiani will continue to cherish the relationship with the music festival and join hands in this world-famous jazz festival to write a magnificent chapter in the history of music.

   Montreux provided a stage for Parmigiani. Parmigiani’s customers, journalists and friends gathered here. Like other areas around the festival, the time in Parmigiani’s VIP private space is still. Being able to interact with outstanding musicians and their performances around the world makes everything else less important. In 16 days, the Montreux Jazz Festival will break the barriers of music and music will become the magic that activates and connects happy hours.
   This year’s festival lineup has magical and pleasing duets: such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, Caetano Veloso, and Jill Burr Gilberto Gil, as well as the unique partner of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett. There are also legendary performances of emerging young artists, filled with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Many talented musicians who have been accompanied by the Montreux Jazz Festival will receive a special model of the Parmigiani Tonda Métro MJF 2015 series. The dial design is inspired by this year’s festival poster: beauty products. It coincides with the impromptu spirit of the Jazz. Special models are available for men’s Métrographe and Métropolitaine. For these musicians, at the 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival, these moments of fresh memories, this event with endless aftertastes, I believe, will make it memorable for life.

TONDA METRO MJF 2015 Special Watch for Artists
  This has become a tradition: In order to remember each Montreux Jazz Festival, Parmigiani designs a limited edition of MJF men’s and women’s watches every year, inspired by the festival’s official posters. Once the poster is announced, Parmigiani must enter the world of jazz metaphors constructed by the poster designer, so that part of the soul given by the creator is incorporated into the watch design. For the 2015 poster, Swiss pop artist Sylvie Fleury gave an interesting interpretation of the festival’s spirit—garage punk showing broken cosmetics on the concrete floor.

  Based on this poster, the Métrographe watch created by Parmigiani has no doubt an urban beauty. The asphalt gray dial is matt-treated, and the cosmetic splash pattern of the same color but different shades on the dial is shimmering, expressing exquisite and convergent with a symbolic meaning. The snail-shaped rhodium-plated chronograph dial partially hides the original splash pattern, giving the dial a vitality under a contemporary artistic sense. The simple black inlaid arrow-shaped hour markers and digital hour markers highlight the watch’s graphic concept. Under the embellishment of bright yellow decals, it is like a street artist’s splash on the wall.

  As far as women’s models are concerned, Parmigiani combines a bright candy color with a conflicting texture to create a unique and lively look, which keeps the watch as an artist. The iridescent mother-of-pearl dial has a sandblasted cosmetic splash pattern that looms as the light changes. Black appliquéd hour markers, complemented by a soft taupe shade of pink. The crown is inlaid with a mouth-watering pink ruby, charming and charming. The soft white calfskin strap with coral band hoop is feminine but dynamic.
As a global partner, Parmigiani supports
-Montreux Jazz Festival
-Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation
   Whether past or future … Montreux Jazz Festival is exciting and beautiful. However, a great festival is never limited to a single presentation form of performance. The founder of the festival, Claude Nobs, knows this very well, and is determined to tap the artistic passion that has not yet bloomed, and encourage music artists who will become the stars of the future. This task is undertaken by the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation. Its activities fall into the following three categories:
1. Vocal, guitar and piano competitions. Parmigiani started sponsoring the Montreux Jazz Solo Solo Competition in 2011. The winner will receive a special watch from the Parmigiani ‘Montreux Jazz Festival’ of the year. The musician will also perform at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and his songs will be included in the music album accordingly.
2. Montreux Jazz Academy, the winners of the 2015 Montreux Jazz Competition will participate in this event from October 5-11, receiving support and guidance from the Academy.
   These young talents, who are international talents, have the opportunity to perform live and improve communication with mentors and commercial musicians. At the end of the event, young artists and their mentors will perform two unique concerts on October 8th, staged in the heart of the Montreux Jazz Academy: the auditorium of the Sylvia Waddilove Center in Villeneuve. On the same stage, music talents from all over the world gathered and celebrated. On the same evening, the culture of the festival was different in time and space. In the name of innovation, it paid tribute to outstanding artists in the history of music.
3. A world tour is planned for the winners at the end of each year.
Montreux Jazz Cafe
  As part of increasing its influence on the international stage, Parmigiani is committed to sponsoring and supporting the operation of Montreux Jazz Cafés, the ambassador of Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and elsewhere.
  You’ll find Montreux Jazz Cafes at some well-known airports: airports in Geneva, Zurich and the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, which opened in 2008, 2011 and 2015, respectively.
  Montreux Jazz Cafes also exist in world-renowned venues, such as Harrods (2012), Lyon Station Paris (2013) and Fairmont Montreux Palace Hotel (2014).
  The cafe is the product of the emotional collision between the Parmigiani and Montreux Jazz Festivals. The common values ​​of both parties—quality, creativity, and the desire to enjoy time—are shared by the fragrant aroma of coffee.

Montblanc Montblanc ‘do Not Be Afraid Of The Next Game’-praise The Pioneer Spirit Of The Times

On November 3, 2016, Montblanc Montblanc’s ‘Don’t Fear the Next-Praise the Pioneering Spirit of the Times’ press conference and the 110th anniversary of the global tour exhibition in Shenzhen was grandly held at the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen. Montblanc Global Creative Director Mr. Zaim Kamal, Montblanc Asia Pacific President Julien Renard, Montblanc China Managing Director Aris Maroulis, and Montblanc Brand Ambassador Lin Dan came to the scene and cut the ribbon for the tour. Since 1906, Montblanc has paid tribute to the pioneering spirit of the times. Montblanc brand ambassador Mr. Lin Dan officially announced that he would not retire after the Rio Olympics at the event site, and explained the firm belief of ‘no fear of the next game’ with practical actions. Montblanc is also working with the brand ambassador to declare ‘110 years of achievement is not the end, Montblanc will never fear the next challenge.’

Go beyond yourself, not afraid of the next game
Montblanc China brand ambassador Lin Dan, under the age of 19, reached the number one position in the IBF. Has successively won the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics men’s singles events. It is the first time in the history of badminton to gather the Olympic champion, the World Championship champion, the World Cup champion, the Asian Games champion, the Asian Championship champion, the All England Championship and many more. A world slam player who is the champion of the World Badminton Super Series. Because of his fierce playing style and distinctive personality, Lin Dan has been called ‘Super Dan’ by the majority of fans, and is recognized as the strongest badminton player of his generation, even the greatest player in badminton history.

Montblanc China Brand Ambassador Lin Dan

Even though she harvested countless flowers and applause, for Lin Dan, it was not easy to walk along the road of badminton, from stumbling, to beginning to know how to enjoy the game, and gradually getting better, until becoming the king of the feather altar. Controversy, pain, and troughs bothered him all the time, but he never gave up lightly, only because of his love of badminton and his relentless pursuit of the highest goal. The title of ‘World Champion’ can be won by one game, but the title of ‘The Greatest Player in Badminton History’ can only be won by relying on one game after another to go all out and pass the challenge. In Lin Dan’s mind, even if he won the championship, it is only a glory this time, just a point in the long river of life, and he is always looking forward to the next game to create glory above glory.
In Lin Dan’s view, Montblanc is an international top luxury brand with its own persistence and attitude, not following the trend, and after hundreds of years of hardening. Montblanc’s iconic hexagonal white star symbol, which symbolizes Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe, means that Montblanc continues to explore and carve out a new level of brand value. Just like Lin Dan himself, no matter how brilliant the past, he still has the courage to continue to create miracles. For him, the more important meaning of life is to persist in surpassing himself and creating new legends.
In his nearly 30-year career, he has participated in four consecutive Olympic Games. Many people have speculated that Lin Dan will soon retire after the Rio Olympics and say goodbye to the badminton. , Never give up the pursuit of excellence and extreme, continue to move forward, not afraid of the next game.
Centennial heritage continues to break the extreme
The inextricable relationship between the Montblanc brand and Lin Dan began with the pioneering spirit of the times that the two have consistently created classics and constantly challenged their limits. The 110th anniversary bears a glorious history for Montblanc. Like Lin Dan, Montblanc is also not afraid of challenges, and once again breaks through the extremes of fine watchmaking. The Pythagore ultralight concept watch from Timewalker showcases excellent watch skills and expresses its determination not to fear the next game. Montblanc Global Creative Director Mr. Zaim Kamal introduced the excellent timepiece to the media and guests at the press conference.
Montblanc has developed revolutionary and innovative materials for the Timewalker Pythagore ultralight concept watch. The lugs are made of black DLC-coated titanium, and the case middleware, case back, bezel and crown are made of unique ITR Kevlar / carbon material, making the entire Timewalker Pythagore ultralight concept watch extremely light. And durable, it has become one of the world’s thinnest mechanical timepieces, weighing only 14.88 grams (excluding the weight of the strap). Equipped with the new Montblanc hand-wound MB M62.48 movement, this movement reinterprets the classic Minerva movement produced in 1943 with a modern design. It adopts a straight bridge shape and follows the Pythagoras golden section. Principle of proportionality. This highly modern movement has been completely redesigned in terms of materials and processes, bringing traditional aesthetics to the future.

Mr. Zaim Kamal, Global Creative Director, Montblanc

Tissot Tissot Does Not Increase Prices

Our recent reports show that Tissot has carefully prepared for future development. Following the opening of a new logistics centre in Le Locle last year, the brand showcased new products from sports watches to classic watchmaking to buyers at Baselworld.
    Towards the end of the show, Europa Star Watch World interviewed François Thiébaud, who has been the president of Tissot for 16 years and also chaired the Swiss Exhibitors Committee to learn about Tissot’s development and his feedback on the global watch market.
    François Thiébaud said in an interview at Basel that the key to Tissot’s success is not to raise prices. This may sound surprising, especially in the face of strategies adopted by other Swatch Group brands and the strength of the Swiss franc. But François Thiébaud has led Tissot to achieve 16 years of continuous growth, including the crisis period of 2009, which means that his point is worth hearing.
    ‘Of course, the price has increased over the past 16 years as president,’ he said. ‘A watch that cost 250 Swiss francs 16 years ago now costs about 400 Swiss francs. That is because of other costs such as wages and raw materials. ‘
Tissot T-RACE TOM LÜTHI
    Nonetheless, François Thiébaud insists that customers should be able to buy a Tissot watch at the ‘price of Tissot’. ‘In most cases, many companies will increase their profits by increasing prices,’ he continued. ‘And I think we should increase profits by producing more.’
    As chairman of the Swiss Exhibitors Committee, Mr. Thiébaud said that the overall feedback from the Basel show was ‘very good’ and very good, not only for watches but also for jewelry. ‘But there is no guarantee that this situation can continue. Perhaps development will slow down in the second half of the year. After all, we experienced explosive growth before the end of 2008, and then everything stopped.’
    However, he is not as worried about possible downturns as his colleagues at the top of Swatch Group brands. ‘Tissot is protected in the mid-range. Because if development slows down, then people who are likely to buy Omega will buy Longines Longines, and people who buy Longines will buy Tissot.’
    Despite the increasing importance of the Chinese market, François Thiébaud emphasized that Switzerland remains the most important market for Tissot. ‘Of course, this is not purely in terms of quantity,’ he said. ‘It takes population density into account. If we sell ten watches in Switzerland, this is different from selling ten watches in the Asian market. . ‘
It is therefore not surprising that the Tissot 2012 MotoGP was specifically designed for Swiss driver Thomas Lüthi.
