The name Parmigiani Fleurer is not a stranger to collectors of expensive designer watches. Well, the designer indeed has an impressive list of coveted timepieces to his credit. And now, the man has decided to pay a tribute to the new super-saloon Galibier being made in the Bugatti workshop as well as the Alsatian automaker’s centenary.
There are two unique examples of Fleurier’s sideways mounted manual timepiece. One has been made in 18 carat rose gold and the second one in platinum 950. These are being celebrated as the two final examples of the highly intricate Bugatti Type 370 wristwatch. These were then passed on to master engraver Philippe Bondenmann who has dedicated 300 manhours into each trying to hand etch the comples designs into the cases of the watches.
The two timepiece are fastened to the wrist with the aid of a calfskin strap that has been supplied by Hermes. So, as you can see these dedications are indeed as priceless as the Bugatti supercars that we have loved and admired so much oe hundered years.
