BUGATTI car - Parmigani Super Sport Bugatti Watch

Bugatti
 At the dawn of World War II, it looked as though Bugatti was going to be one of the prime contenders for racing domination. The Bugatti team won the first ever Monaco Grand Prix of 1929 . This race has gone on to become one of the most important, and prestigious, auto races in the world. Not long after, the company's driver Jean-Pierre Wimille won the 24 hours of Le Mans twice, in 1937 and again in 1939.

The company early on became known for its artistic and high-level engineering. Of the many hallmarks Bugatti was known for were engine blocks that had been hand scraped, so that they did not require gaskets, as well as an exposed engine compartment. At the time, Bugatti's main competitor was Bentley. This British company seemed to be directly competing for the same high-end automobile market. Many of the models produced in those early days by both Bentley and Bugatti were made only in limited numbers, and most were created by hand. Only a few examples of each Bugatti model were ever produced because of their exclusivity. 


The modern history of Bugatti includes Lamborghini designers and the acquisition of the Lotus car company - testament to the brand's high-end following. In 1998, under Volkswagen, Bugatti began working on the EB118 concept. The EB118 was a touring sedan with an 18 cylinder W-configuration engine. The two-door coupe boasted 555 horsepower. A year later the EB218, a four-door limousine, surfaced at the Geneva Auto Show. Following close on the heels of the EB118 and EB218 were the Veyron 16.4 and the Chiron.

Bugatti has teamed up with Parmigani developers to create a new watch that mirrors and complements their Bugatti Veyron 16.4, which is the fastest car in the world. The Super Sport Bugatti watch is an evolution of the Parmigani Bugatti 370 watch collection. It features a partial carbon fiber dial has a 10-day power reserve and a 10 meter meter water resistance. It is also placed perpendicular to the axis by integrating a system of double pinions with bevel gearing. The timepiece is limited to 30 pieces with straps courtesy of Hermes Paris, made up of 18 carat white gold and is priced at $259,000.
