The Swiss watchmaker's latest collection draws inspiration from the everyday lives of city-dwelling men and women.

Swiss watchmaker Parmigiani Fleurier is presenting its latest watch collection at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva. This new line draws inspiration from the everyday lives of city-dwelling men and women.
Named "Métro", this prestigious collection includes two lines: Métrographe for men and Métropolitaine for women. According to the brand, these watches are designed to "live and breathe every minute of the day" as they "adorn the wrists of busy city dwellers".

Among the most distinctive characteristics of these new watches are their elongated and asymmetrical cases, which give each watch two separate profile views. The left-hand side, without a crown, presents a classic profile and calls to mind the Swiss watchmaker's signature teardrop shape. The less-conventional right-hand side is offset by elongated lugs, which – on the men's version – surround the chronograph push buttons.
The women's version stands out for its rounded edges and the snailed finish of its dial, both of which call to mind undulating waves.

The Métrographe and Métropolitaine watches come in a wide variety of appearances. While all of the men's watches in the line are based on a self-winding chronograph movement, Parmigiani Fleurier invites men to choose their dial (black or grained), accents (gold or rose gold), and their bracelet or strap (titanium/steel, Hermès calfskin).
The women's watches, meanwhile, come with a choice of dial (amarante, black, white mother-of-pearl) and bracelet/strap (Hermès calfskin, steel).
The Métro collection will go on sale in the second half of 2014.
