LYON, France, Sept. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Tissot was honoured to be the
official sponsor of the high-profile charity event that took place on
September 20, 2012, in the beautiful Abbaye de Collonges, next to Lyon.
The event was hosted by Tissot's Ambassador, Tony Parker, captain of
the French national basketball team, who is the co-founder of the Par
The annual Par Coeur Gala supports various associations that Tony Parker
holds dear. This year, it raised funds for Make a Wish Foundation, for
which Tony Parker is the ambassador. The association grants children
suffering from life-threatening medical conditions a wish.
Honouring the great basketball player with an even greater heart, Tissot
launched a special edition watch for the occasion, bearing his name -
the PRS 330 Tony Parker Limited Edition 2012. This watch takes its
inspiration from the athlete. The piece conveys energy worthy of a
professional sportsman through its look and dynamic details such as the
stripe going around the crown and pushers. Just like the basketball
player jumping in the air for the ultimate slam dunk, this watch will
stand out from the crowd with style. The limited edition features Tony
Parker's number 9 standing proudly at its dedicated index, illustrating
the ball's fiery orange.
The Par Coeur Gala was definitely the place to be on that evening. A
host such as Tony Parker, a limited edition watch launch and the
gathering of all the influential people and celebrities who came
together to support these great causes definitely proved to be a recipe
for a successful charity event and even more amazing evening.
