Tony Parker a.k.a Eva Longoria’s ex-spouse is a man who is professionally known outside the celebrity circuit for much more than just being Longorias’s ex-husband. He is a French professional basketball player whom NBA followers would have seen playing for the San Antonio Spurs. We would expect nothing less from a gent whose name is the combination of two super-heroes, Tony Spark and Peter Parker.
Mr. Parker is one of the few high-profile people who take their celebrity status seriously as evidenced by his unwavering support for the annual Par Coeur Gala that he has been supporting over the years. Hosted by Tissot this year, the gala helped raise funds for the Make a Wish foundation of which Tony is an ambassador. Given that Tony is also the ambassador for Tissot, the occasion was perfect for the launch of the PRS 330 , a special edition watch from Tissot bearing his name.
The PRS 330 is said to be inspired by the athlete with ‘the piece conveying 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’.
Seen in the video are Mr. and Mrs. Parker during happier days (circa 2010) while they were still together.
Love it or hate it, Tissot needs to be applauded for launching a watch while supporting a charity. The Make a Wish foundation ; for those who have never heard of it helps to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Hop on to Make a Wish to donate and learn more about them.
