The Bugatti Vitesse watch follows the success of the Bugatti Super Sport presented in 2010. Standing out by the dial setting wheel at a 90° angle to the movement spindle, the exceptional timepiece was constructed with a double-pinion system with bevel gearing, and a sophisticated mechanism that provided a perpendicular time display.
The novelty has maintained the exceptional shape of the Bugatti Super Sport and the technical feat of the movement that animated it. The materials, colors and design of the Bugatti Vitesse have been inspired by the new car.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport catches the glance by its paintwork. It represents a modern alloy, a combination of shine and matt color that contributed to the car’s almost paramilitary look. Keeping this in mind, the designers of the new Parmigiani Fleurier watch used titanium to strengthen its masculinity. The case of the timepiece (36.0 x 50.7 x 22.7 mm) demonstrates perfectly polished and satin-finished surfaces, so it looks like it was sent from the future.
The oval dial of the new Parmigiani Fleurier watch has been redesigned to reflect the concept of speed first and foremost. The indexes between 3 and 9 o’clock are spindle-shaped, giving an impression of acceleration. The delta-shaped hands are coated with a luminescent material for great legibility under any light conditions.
The new Bugatti Vitesse watch is animated by a hand-wound movement - PF 372. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, the 333-part, 40-jewel movement offers a 10-day power reserve.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Vitesse watch is secured to the wrist on a Hermes alligator strap fitted with a titanium folding buckle with polished finish.
