Taking its name from the most skilled restorer in Switzerland,Parmigiani is a 19-year old company with one of the longest and most prolifichistories in the world of watches. Touring Parmigiani factories today, you willsee dials for A. Lange & Söhne, cases for MB&F, bracelets for AudemarsPiguet, and micro-rotors for Patek Philippe, to name just a few. Parmigiani’scontracts with these brands demonstrates the high quality of its production.
So what happens when the finest watchmakers in the world partnerwith the greatest soccer confederation in history?
We humbly present the pinnacle of both worlds: the ParmigianiFleurier Transforma CBF.
This innovative devise is actually three intricately engineeredmechanisms: A single module housing the timekeeping apparatus, a steel carriageattached to a strap, and one attached to a fob. As well, the beautifullyfinished wooden winder provides a luxurious perch that turns the watch into atable clock.
A sapphire crystal on the back of the case provides a window intothe heart and soul of this magnum opus. This crystal is held in place by a steel case back inscribed with thewords, “CONFEDERACAO BRASILEIRA DE FUTEBOL,” and the watch number.
For many watches, the personality is derived primarily from thedial. In any of its forms, this watch is no exception. Moreover, we wereoffered the opportunity to appreciate the partnership with the BrazilianFootball Confederation. Parmigiani has accented the dial with Brazil’semblematic colors: green, yellow, and blue. The background of this graphite-platedgalvanic black dial features a subtle texture, reminiscent of the meticulouslygroomed fields of professional soccer stadiums.
The second’s hand for the chronograph function is yellow and centeredon the dial. The hour and minute hands are centered as well. These delta-shapedhands, along with the rhodium plated indices, are coated with luminescence.
Life is a moving, breathing, living thing. All life must bewilling to constantly evolve as the only true perfection comes through constanttransformation. The Parmigiani Fleurier Transforma is the ideal companion—itprovides the inspiration to reach for that perfection.
