Swiss watchmaking is a real art form and it’s for a reason that these master craftsman are so revered the world over. There are a small but perfectly formed selection of Swiss watchmakers offering the ultimate in luxury accessories and one that is well and truly on that list is Parmigiani Fleurier and this is a position that they reinforce through the creation of exemplary timepieces like the Bugatti Aérolithe Performance Watch.
Despite only being founded in 1996, which is fairly recently so far as Swiss watchmakers are concerned, Parmigiani Fleurier have wasted no time whatsoever in really establishing their reputation in what is one of the most competitive markets in the world. They are able to achieve this level of recognition despite their relative infancy due to the fact they have crafted such stunning timepieces as this Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Aérolithe Performance Watch and, quite frankly, it’s left us pretty astounded here at Coolector HQ.
Creative Collaborations At Their Finest
For some, luxury is a way of life and they manage to exude it through their creations and this utterly compelling timepiece is a fine example of this and is the result of a collaboration and meeting of minds between Michel Parmigiani, the iconic fine watchmaker and Ettore Bugatti, the extraordinary car manufacturer based in Molsheim, Alsace. The end result of this superb collaboration is the out of this world timepiece that you see before you.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Aérolithe Performance Watch has been a long time in the making as the meeting between Bugatti and Parmigiani originally took place back in 2001 but, as they say, good things come to those who wait and we’re mighty glad that this extraordinary watch eventually made it onto the shelves as it’s nothing short of stunning. There is a distinct level of trust between the two luxury brands and Bugatti essentially provided Parmigiani with carte blanche to create whatever they could dream of using the finest materials available and with the Aérolithe Performance Watch it is well and truly mission accomplished.
With so many stand out features with this extraordinary watch, it’s difficult to know where to begin but the most eye-opening feature has to be the case which is made entirely out of titanium. This is no easy feat and required laser technology to apply the finish which is currently beyond the capability of conventional machining. The adrenaline soaked action synonymous with Bugatti pursuits is witnessed in the sheer attention to detail in the craftsmanship such as the spectacular double tachymeter, which has km/h indications in red and mph in blue – something that race fans are really going to appreciate.
Top Class Performance
As you would expect from a timepiece from two luxury powerhouses, the quality of the materials and specifications of the Bugatti Aérolithe Performance Watch are second to none. It has the house-made automatic Parmigiani Calibre PF 335 movement that delivers such impeccable precision and a 30.3mm-wide and 6.81mm-thick caliber that operates at 28,800vph with a thoroughly impressive, 50-hour power reserve. No fewer than 311 components and 68 jewels are used in the creation of this magnificent movement and this provides a real sense of tangible luxury with the Bugatti Aérolithe Performance Watch.
If you’re a fan of motoring and high end Swiss timepieces, this exceptional collaboration between two leading names in the respective fields will likely have got you sitting up and taking notice as it has us here at Coolector HQ. Exemplary quality throughout and a phenomenal, robust aesthetic that is right up our street, we’d better get saving if we want to get one of these luxurious accessories on our wrist.
