BUGATTI AEROLITHE


Unveiled in 1935, the Bugatti Aérolithe, which vanished the very same year, remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration to Parmigiani Fleurier.


 

 

 

The mark of destiny

 

This high-tech piece with a titanium case uses laser technology to apply finishes beyond the capability of conventional machining. The experience gained from the Senfine Concept Watch proved priceless in achieving something so complex, with the technologies developed for one-off creations serving to benefit other timepieces.

 

There is a nod to the world of high-speed pursuits in the double tachometer, which has km/h indications in red and mph in blue in reference to the signature colours of Bugatti. The Delta-shaped hour and minute hands, the red "1" numeral on the date and the double hand at 9 o'clock all bear the stylistic hallmarks of Parmigiani Fleurier. Other striking elements contribute to the personality of this timepiece, such as the famous lugs featuring the dorsal seam of the Bugatti Aérolithe, the strap inspired by the embossed pattern of the manufacturer's seats, and the deployant buckle, which is textured to match the dial.

 

The Bugatti Aérolithe Performance is driven by the proprietary PF335 movement, which boasts a flyback chronograph module. It is decorated with "Côtes de Genève", a classic finish which complements this round watch, buoyed by the energy of the legendary car which served as its inspiration.
