By TLex It's carnival time! Parmigiani Fleurier continue with their unique partnership with CBF (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol) formed in 2011, when they became the official watchmaking partner of the legendary federation.
In celebration of this partnership, the Fleurier based watch brand have created 3 new 'CBF' Editions of the sporty Pershing Chronograph collection. Rather than simply stamping a shield on the case back of a watch. PF have painstaking researched, both the concept and the graphics for these timepiece truly capturing the spirit of the CBF. They are certainly colorful! Love the yellow rubber ;)
The watches feature a Titanium cases and a choice of either white gold or rose gold bezels. The side profile (below) illustrates how substantial the Pershing watch cases are - truly magnificent! The dials showcases the three colors of the CBF, which are gold, blue and green; each of them used in perfect harmony. The intense blue provides the background color, on top of the “Côtes de Genève” guilloche worked surface.
Gold is used to highlight the two chronograph hands, usually so discreet. Green is used for the greatest symbol of Brazil’s passion for football: the 5 victory stars to commemorate as many world cups won by the national team. These 5 stars, featured on all the players’ jerseys, replace the small seconds index at 3 o’clock on the Pershing.
