Parmigiani Fleurier Adds Bling to its Bugatti Watch Family
Three years ago, Bugatti and its watchmaking partner Parmigiani Fleurier introduced an automatic flyback chronograph called the Bugatti Aerolithe. And while it was and still is a handsome piece in its two available color/finish combos, it was due for a refresh. And it’s gotten a humdinger of a refresh in the form of the Bugatti Aerolithe Performance Titanium.
As the name implies, Parmigiani Fleurier made extensive use of titanium in the construction of this watch, specifically the 41 mm case. Its laser-etched details are far more intricate and precise than anything machined by hand, and the same can be said for the diamond-pattern on the dial (which echoes the embossing on the black calfskin strap). The subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock, along with the main dial, are driven by the same automatic Parmigiani Fleurier Calibre PF335 movement as the previous versions of the Bugatti Aerolithe, meaning you’ll have 50 hours of power reserve. Style and usability for $22,900? Sounds pretty sweet to us.
