Hand-wound type "coaxial" movement
An engine block on the wrist
A tribute to the Bugatti Chiron
Qualities which come together to create the magic and unique character of the Bugatti Chiron, "the world's most powerful and fastest car", the latest creation from the Molsheim-based luxury car manufacturer.
Parmigiani Fleurier – partner of Bugatti since 2004 - has distilled the very essence of this supercar to create a unique timepiece. When all is said and done, the Bugatti Type 390 is an absolute triumph. Specially developed for this remarkable watch, and as exceptional as the 1500-hp quad-turbocharged W16 engine on the Chiron, Parmigiani Fleurier's patented calibre PF390 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.
