Transforma CBF (Brazil Football Association)
Chronograph in Carbon/Steel Case.
Parmigiani Fleurier presents a new watch, or is it a new
pocket watch… or maybe a desk-clock? The new Tonda
Transforma Chronograph is all of the above!
This piece features a completely in-house, beautifully
decorated PF334 movement. This is the current model with
retail price of $30,000.
The concept of the convertible watch is innovative, and the
piece is exquisitely crafted!
It is 100% brand new with papers and an original collector’s
box (customized Parmigiani automatic winder)
This is the exact watch from the brand’s website, where you
can read more about the movements and the functions
Size: Full size men’s at 43mm with crown (41mm without
100% Brand New. The set
comes complete with box (winder), papers, both
wrist watch and pocket watch holders as shown
As it is Parmigiani’s current model and is very limited
production, they are are rarely discounted.
Here’s what the
press says about the Transforma:
“The idea is very cool, during the day you’re wearing your
wrist watch. Late at night you take it out of it’s holder and
insert it into a holder made of macassar (ebony wood) and it
becomes your table or nightstand clock. Fancy to wear a pocket
watch on a chain? That’s possible as well with the Parmigiani
Tonda Transforma Chronograph.
Inside ticks the same movement as in the Kalpagraph, calibre
PF 334, an in-house developed and produced chronograph caliber
with automatic winding. Calibre PF 334 has a power reserve of
55 hours. Besides the chronograph, it also has a date function
that is visible in a large aperture at the 6 o’clock position.
The two chronograph function is visible on the raised
graphite-colored hour and minute counters (30 minutes and 12
hours), which are positioned at the 9 and 6 o’clock position.
The silvered dial features a Côtes de Genève decoration, that
is applied in Parmigiani’s own workshops. On the outside of
the dial, is a relatively wide ring with tachymeter scale.
The actual watch is fitted inside a steel holder, that can be
opened by simply pressing the two lateral push-pieces on the
two lower lugs. By pushing the push-pieces the jaw-like holder
opens up and the actual watch can be taken out. That can be
clipped into the rounded steel fob watch holder, that also
provides access to the chronograph pushers as well as the
crown (for winding and setting). The steel fob watch holder
can be extended by a steel chain, so that the Transforma
becomes one of the classics of the watchmaking world.
A third way of enjoying the Parmigiani Tonda Transforma is to
place it in a table clock holder made from macassar wood. Once
the timepiece is positioned, the rotating presentation case
starts up the winding mechanism automatically. At the end of
the process, the table clock places the Transforma in a
vertical position to make the time readable. Three small
compartments on the side have been designed to hold the fob
watch and its chain, the warranty card or any other Transforma
