The Transforma CBF (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol) is a convertible set that includes two watch heads: a chronograph and an annual calendar that transform to a wristwatch or pocket watch. The watch-winder/presentation case can also double as a table clock.
Both watch heads are interchangeable because the wristwatch and pocket watch constructions are equipped with quick-release stainless steel holders. On the wristwatch, the holder is released by pressing two side pushers positioned on the lower lugs. On the pocket watch, the holder is released by pressing the two side pushers positioned on the upper lugs.
The chronograph features a 43mm shot-blasted carbon case and galvanic black dial highlighted with the three emblematic colours of the CBF. The national team’s five victory stars decorate the dial. The Delta-shaped hands are treated with a luminous coating. The small seconds are printed in green at 3 o’clock, the date aperture is integrated into the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, and the 30-minute counter is at 9 o’clock.
The timepiece houses the manufacture Calibre PF 334 automatic, column-wheel chronograph movement made of 303 component parts, including 68-jewels and two series-coupled barrels that yield a power reserve of 50-hours.

The retrograde annual calendar features a three-part 43mm red gold case that houses the manufacture Calibre PF 339 automatic movement. The galvanic blue dial has an opaline outer dial and a guilloché decorated centre dial. The Delta-shaped hands are treated with a luminous coating.
The calendar displays the date in a retrograde style, with a green date hand that moves from 1 to 31 (or 30 or 29), and jumps back to 1 at the end of each month. The day is indicated in the subsidiary dial at 9 o’clock and the month is indicated in the subsidiary dial at 3 o’clock. In addition, the moonphase is indicated at 6 o’clock with the national team’s five victory stars decorating the lunar disk.
