Parmigiani launches the Transforma Rivages
Parmigiani has quite recently delivered the Transforma Rivages, a new titanium/carbon rendition of the Tonda Transforma Chronograph they delivered a year ago. The new form is restricted to 100 pieces and has been planned in particularly for Swiss captain Bernard Stamm.
Of course this has an explanation! Bernard Stamm has recently left for a three-month solo trip around the planet, taking piece of the incredible Vendée Globe race , together with 19 other captains and their yachts. The new Transforma Rivages has been adjusted to the requirements of Bernard during his difficult trip.
This chameleon-like wrist watch (likewise pocket watch or work area clock) can be utilized differently, anyway for this situation it can likewise be utilized as an on-load up instrument. The primary design was to make a watch fit for supporting Bernard Stamm in each extraordinary circumstance. The vibe of the chronograph’s dial takes its motivation from the Rivages yacht: the counters are produced using carbon and the hands, alongside the dial’s plan of an adapted world guide, are a similar «Rivages blue» as the monohull’s logo.
On the wrist, the Transforma Rivages is light and comfortable, due to the pre-owned materials like titanium and carbon. The Transforma’s development is furnished with a jaw, grasping and clipping the principle body of the watch. The titanium hood is delivered by basically squeezing the two side push-pieces situated on the two lower lugs.
The watch’s case, machined from a similar carbon fiber as the Rivages’ monohull (the yacht), sits completely in the help of the titanium holder. Since of its hilter kilter shape, it is not difficult to get to crown and utilize the chronograph.
The development is the in-house created and delivered chronograph type with programmed winding, calibre PF 334. It has 55 hours of force save. Other than the time and chronograph, it likewise has a date work that is noticeable in an enormous gap at the 6 o’clock position. The carbon case estimates 43 mm in distance across and 12.80 mm in stature, including the titanium holder. It’s water impervious to (simply) 30 meters, which we trust is sufficient for this captain. The case, when removed from its titanium holder, can likewise be set in the yacht’s dashboard.
The Transforma Rivages is restricted to 100 pieces; engraved for the situation back is ‘Edition spéciale 100’ and the individual number of the watch. For more information, if it’s not too much trouble, visit the Parmigiani site .
