Time For A Convertible: Watches With More Than One Face
I previously wrote about the Michael Bittel Double Diaphragm Eclipse watch here.Montblanc Timewriter 1 Metamorphosis WatchProbably the closely thing that exists to a true watch transformer, the Montblanc Timewriter 1 Metamorphosis is an ultra complex and expensive watch that not only has a dial that changes, but the functions do as well. It takes about 15 seconds for the transformation to complete, while the dial undergoes change, and you pray the watch still works when it is all said and done. Try rattling it a bit to ensure there aren't any loose pieces after it has rearranged its mechanical innards.A totally different watch that uses the same concept to hide a GMT hand is the de GRISOGONO Fuso Quadrato Two Time Zone watch that I previously wrote about here.Michael Bittel Double Diaphragm Eclipse WatchIn another camera shutter style watch dial concept, Michael Bittel doubles up the idea and places it in a more classic style of watch case. At the bottom, you see a decorated skeletonized movement. Which can be covered with one adjustable steel tone shutter, with a second gold tone shutter above it. The Double Diaphragm Eclipse thus offers three separate dials and everything in between by adjusting the size of the shutter apertures.

Certainly not the first time this has been done, but an excellent use of the movable watch case concept. Chopard went to great lengths to ensure that the watch looked good as a pocket watch, or on the wrist via some clever design and engineering.Parmigiani Bugatti Tourbillon WatchA special watch made for Bugatti Galibier 16C car is this Parmigiani Tourbillon timepiece. It is meant to be three things.
