It is not surprising that automakers and the designers of luxury timepieces like to collaborate with each other. Both professions deal with precision, high-performance machines, and both are constantly striving for new innovations in both technical achievement and style.
When automakers and watch designers work together, the results are usually spectacular and interesting. The watches produced by such collaborations are always masterful in their technical details and appealing in their appearance.
This Bugatti line from Parmigiani Fleurier Watches has a striking look and a unique movement. These are the first watches in the world to have a transverse movement that works like the transmission of a car. Understandably proud of their creation, Bugatti and Omega Watches have provided several see-through panels showing off every aspect of the movement.
These watches don't look like others. In the original Bugatti design, shown in several of these selections, the body is an oval cylinder, most of which is filled by the see-through panels. The circular dial is at the side of the cylinder.
Also shown are several of the Bugatti Flyback Chronographs, the design for which is based on the Bugatti Atalante 57S Sport from the 1930s. These have wide, porthole-style dials with see-through faces showing the handsome movement. Each of these luxury timepieces has a large chronograph dial in the space between the center and 3, while a small second hand appears beside 9. Notice that some of these Parmigiani Fleurier watches are set with white baguette diamonds.
Here are watches that are perfect for the lovers of all kinds of high-performance machinery. This line from Bugatti and Parmigiani Fleurier Watches is a technical and stylistic triumph.
