Bugatti Type 390 Is A Chiron Engine Block For The Wrist

Just like the supercar which inspired it, the Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 390 watch has a lot going on under the bonnet.

Parmigiani Fleurier’s Bugatti Type 390 watch is truly one-of-a-kind horological achievement. Its performance and on-board technology is designed to emulate the Bugatti Chiron in watch form.

With its atypical design, the Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 390 watch has drawn inspiration from its big sisters. The curves of the Bugatti Type 370 and the smooth lines of the Bugatti Super Sport Saphir have given way to a powerful and assertive look.

Parmigiani Fleurier, a partner of Bugatti since 2004, has distilled the very essence of the Chiron, “the world’s most powerful and fastest car”, to create this unique timepiece.

Specially developed for this unique luxurious timepiece, and as exceptional as the 1500-hp quad-turbocharged W16 engine on the Bugatti 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.

The automobile-inspired engine/interior/bodywork construction includes a cylindrical mechanical Calibre PF390 with flying tourbillon and the world’s smallest ever ball bearing. Bugatti Coaxial is available in rose gold and white gold versions, each in two 10-piece limited editions adorned with a Hermes black alligator bracelet.

Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti collaboration includes also Bugatti Aerolithe Automatic, Bugatti Type 370 (manual using a dynamometric starter), and Bugatti Super Sport models.
