Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Super Sport Watch

Ultimate luxury takes the shape of an amazing timepiece – Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Super Sport. This impressive watch is a tribute paid by Parmigiani Fleurier to the stunning Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport car which entered Guinness Book of Record for the highest speed in a production sports car.

The official partner of Bugatti since 2001, the Swiss brand of luxury watchmakers now presents the second generation of Bugatti watches. This partnership led to many revolutionary developments in watchmaking, and the new Bugatti Super Sport watch is one of them.

All the mechanical components of the new Caliber Parmigiani 372 are placed onto a vertical axis providing lateral time display, a function perfectly suitable for the needs of car drivers who can see the time without turning their wrist.

Because of the sophisticated 90° time setting system, the dial is positioned perpendicular to the display axis, so time can be shown on the side. All this is possible thanks to a system of double pinions with bevel gearing.

The aerodynamic design of the new Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Super Sport is also sustained by the dynamometric crown integrated above the profile. Just a little pressure is needed to retract the winding stem from its housing and make the time settings.

Designed in two plans, the manual Caliber Parmigiani 372 movement ensures 10-day power reserve, and incorporates 40 jewels and 337 components. On the upper part, the balance and escape wheel bridges resemble an arc similar to the Bugatti oval. The screw balance and the central circular power reserve bridge having a 10-day graduated scale can be also admired through the sapphire crystal.

The impressive movement is protected by six sapphire crystals which offer an amazing view of the intricate mechanism. The water-resistance is ensured down to 10 meters.

The complex 18K white gold case features polished and satin finishes which resembles a lot with the lines of the Veyron`s wings. In fact, the entire design reminds a wing. The open-worked center of the dial reveals the carbon fiber hour wheel, while the hands, counter and indexes come the brand`s orange color.

The new Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Super Sport watch will be limited to 30 pieces. The timepiece comes with an integral Hermes strap.
