In the first half of the last century, due to the rise of motor sports, precise timepieces were needed to control the length of time, so the cooperation between luxury cars and luxury watches began to become more frequent and closer. Today, with the deepening of cooperation, the level of cooperation touched from the outside to the inside, especially in the creative concept has formed a high degree of agreement. Parmigiani and Bugatti are an example of cooperation between luxury cars and luxury watches. Since 2004, they have formally established a cooperative relationship, and now it has been more than 10 years. The Parmigiani Bugatti series is the crystallization of the cooperation between the two brands. Inspired by the design of the Bugatti sports car, it has created a series of classic models with outstanding aesthetics and inner appearance. In 2017, Parmigiani and Bugatti cooperated again to launch this Parmigiani Bugatti Aérolithe Performance chronograph at the SIHH in Geneva, which possesses the beauty and mystery of the Bugatti Aérolithe model. Technology modification is another high-tech masterpiece of famous watches and luxury cars. (Watch model: PFC329-3001400-XC1442)
The design of the watch was inspired by the Bugatti Aérolithe sports car known as ‘Heavenly Car’, which uses a highly flammable magnesium alloy, thus making welding possible. The two parts of the car body are riveted together through a novel and original ‘ridge seam’ structure, which ensures great viewing and enhances the safety performance of the sports car. This sports car, just like its name, disappeared shortly after its debut in 1935, leaving only a few photos to prove its existence. The Bugatti Aérolithe Performance watch is inspired by the beauty and mystery of the Bugatti Aérolithe model, and the creative timepiece with titanium as the case, showing the extraordinary contemporary elegance and the powerful explosiveness of the legendary sports car.

The textured central part creates a beautiful and deep three-dimensional sense, giving the central part a delicate shine. The chronograph dials at 3 and 9 o’clock have a charming angle design and are decorated with circular satin grain patterns, which are very ornamental. It is worth mentioning that the ‘stepping’ chronograph at the 3 hour mark position is composed of three ‘half layers’, each of which is presented with different texture effects, clear and easy to distinguish, and guarantees the accuracy of timing. The rhodium-plated indicator hour markers are also laser-processed to make them more readable and ornamental.
‘Dual speedometer’ design

The red scale is in kilometers per hour and the blue scale is in miles per hour, inheriting the iconic colors of the Bugatti sports car. The ‘dual tachymeter’ (km and mile) on the minute counter continuously measures speed in 30-minute cycles. Therefore, to calculate the pace per kilometer during a 1-hour walk, you must multiply the number indicated by the two-colored pointer by 2. Of course, this function can also be used to measure the pace of the wearer, greatly improving the practicality of the watch.
Watch movement display
The watch is equipped with a patented PF335 movement with a flyback chronograph module. With the sapphire glass back cover, the movement is clearly visible. It can be seen that the movement is decorated with ‘Geneva Ripples’, and the classic decoration makes the movement also emit a different glory. The centerpiece of the open-ended oscillating weight is the Parmigiani logo, which adds luster to the design of the back-through movement.
