Parmigiani Fleuerier Transforma, More Than Meets The Eye (Hands-On)
One of the more interesting timepieces revealed by Parmigiani Fleurier at SIHH this year was the Transforma Rivages Chronograph Carbon and Titanium. It is a watch that can transform from: a watch, to pocket a watch and to a table clock. Push pins on the lower lugs allow the case to be detached for use as pocket watch or table clock.
The case is 43 mm by 12.8 mm and is made of carbon and titanium. Functions include hours, minutes, small seconds, day indication and chronograph. The movement is a self-winding in-house caliber PF334. The case back is engraved with "Special edition 100" and the individual number. The dial is in graphite with a circular satin finish, world map decoration and carbon counters with a thin diamond-polished flange. Luminescent Delta-shaped hands. Carbon-stamped black calfskin strap with titanium folding clasp.
