Last Friday (August 13, 2010) Parmigiani Fleurier launched the car inspired Bugatti Super Sport Watch. A super watch made in conjunction with the world’s fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. Developed by Parmigiani, the Parmigiani Bugatti Super Sport is an evolution of the Bugatti Type 370 watch collection. Featuring a new Parmigiani calibre PF 372 movement, the watch has a curved tear drop shaped lug, which is finished in black and sparks of orange the watch comes with a partial carbon fiber dial with a 10-day power reserve and 10-meter water resistance.
The Super Sports Watch marks a departure from the usual Parmigiani aesthete as the design team behind it introduced several innovations that are unique to this particular model. First, the shape of the wrist watch allows for two clock faces marked in orange. One clock face is set at a diagonal angle and another sits above it for those cursory glances at you wrist. Both clocks only display hours and minutes.
Second, this particular piece of Parmigiani excellence has no less than 370 working parts and comes with six anti-reflective sapphire crystals and an 18 carat white gold case polished to a silvery metallic sheen. Third, the leather Hermes Paris strap is customizable according to the taste of the customer.
Limited to 30 pieces, the watch comes with strap option created by Hermes Paris, including one in black alligator that too finished in 18carat white gold. The watches are priced at $259,000.
