BUGATTI AÉROLITHE PERFORMANCE
The Parmigiani and Bugatti partnership has been in place for quite a while now and so we were quite surprised that the newly launched Bugatti Chiron didn’t get its own watch. However, this year, Parmigiani Fleurier did offer us the Bugatti Aérolithe Performance that is an obvious nod to the Chiron. The case is made entirely out of titanium and uses laser technology to apply finishes beyond the capability of conventional machining; even the two subdials are circular satin-grain finished with lasers as satin-finishing within a recess is impossible. On the tachymeter, the blue and red Bugatti colours are employed, while on the angled bezel, an indication for 0 to 100KM/ H is marked out at 2.4 SEC— showing off the Chiron’s insane numbers.
