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.
