SHOWSTOPPER WATCHES OF THE YEAR: Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 390

Parmigiani Bugatti Type 390


Parmigiani Fleurier has been a partner with luxury car manufacturer Bugatti since 2004, and is paying homage to its Chiron, the world’s fastest supercar, with the Type 390 timepiece.

The watch aims to echo some of the Bugatti Chiron’s exceptional design and engineering triumphs.

The caliber PF390, for example, is housed in a cylinder boasting an 80-hour power reserve thanks to its two series-mounted barrels.

The transmission of information from the tubular structure to the perpendicularly positioned dial is made possible thanks to a worm screw.

Moreover, the modular construction of this movement means that it can be removed from its housing just as an engine would be removed from a supercar for important modifications.

The watch is crafted from rose gold or white gold, each £225,000 watch is made in 10-piece limited editions.
