The first in the Parmigiani Bugatti collection covered the revered Bugatti Veyron sportscar. A driving watch, the Bugatti Type features a vertical face and a transversal movement seen through six sapphire crystals in the eight-piece white gold case. An evolved version of this watch is the Bugatti Super Sport, from the car of the same name, the main difference being the curved tear drop lug case shape. Both shows a day power reserve indicator on top. Not stopping there, Parmigiani Bugatti now includes a multi-purpose tourbillon model based on the 16C Galibier ultra luxury sedan.
Other toys include private jets and a helicopter or three. Bugatti Chiron at the Geneva Motor Show These people are probably also not bothered by things that bother me about the new Bugatti Chiron. If a Chiron owner wants racing pedigree he or she will have to purchase a winning Formula 1 race car once driven by Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell, or Michael Schumacher of a given year.
Bugatti Chiron So what makes these people put a down payment on something that could finance an entire Porsche Turbo on a car they have yet to drive?
They do it because it arouses the senses; when you want to go a little bit faster when you are already going very fast it turns into rocket science.
This is certainly why already people have placed an order for their own Chirons acording to Volkswagen, meaning that only more people will have the chance to do the same, since the production is limited to cars — 50 more than the production run of the Veyron. It should. Only that the Chiron owners order Bentaygas for their gardeners to get around the grounds.
By pushing the limits once more, it is very likely that Bugatti will once again take back the title of fastest production car in the world.
Wait a second. It is probably also the reason why Steven Tyler bought one.
Bugatti and Parmigiani: Super Sport Pushing the limits is also why, in , Bugatti selected Parmigiani as its watch partner. The way Michel Parmigiani has developed his brand is quite similar to the values Bugatti pursues. Despite his significant background in restoring some of the finest treasures in watchmaking history, Parmigiani does not dwell in the past.
Instead, the watchmaker has utilized his considerable expertise to create a brand that is more focused on the future of watchmaking.
Bugatti Super Sport The partnership with Bugatti has led to some extraordinary timepieces, which not only embody the essence of Parmigiani but that of Bugatti as well. The Bugatti Super Sport by Parmigiani is perhaps the most subdued of the collection, if you can believe that.
A ten-day power reserve is more than impressive for a mechanical watch, but in an era where watches with day power reserves also exist there needs to be more than that to truly convince high-end connoisseurs. It represents an exceptional accomplishment that required gear trains to be redeveloped and pinions made to deal with different angles.
This is a comforting thought — until you realize that you will most likely be distracted by the unusual mechanical beauty of this timepiece after all. Here, the watch once again sits on top of the wrist, but now it is like you are looking straight into the gearbox of a Bugatti.
