No line of watches is as technical and innovative as the Bugatti collection and the touch of creative madness that pervades it. In 2004, when Michel Parmigiani first visited the car maker, he decided to create a watch in the form of an engine block to be worn on the wrist, as a tribute to the Bugatti Veyron. This founding idea and touch of madness has come to underlie the entire collection. The Bugatti models have since flourished with spectacular mechanics inspired by the automotive world that break watchmaking conventions. The Bugatti Type 370 places its components, modules and main plates along a horizontal axis, like a car engine. The Bugatti Super Sport adopts the shape of a lug using bevel gears. The Bugatti 390 concentrates its mechanics in a tubular shape with communicating floors, similar to a car.
Every new creation in this range presents a real challenge for the entire Parmigiani Fleurier watchmaking centre. The Bugatti collection embodies the work of an independent manufacture whose various trades all work together to produce exceptional timepieces. It represents the expertise of each division which is the driving force behind the watchmaking centre and which, through constant dialogue, enables Parmigiani Fleurier to go off the beaten track.
