Designed as a tribute to the futuristic 1935 Bugatti Aerolithe Coupe, a legendary vehicle that still serves as a source of inspiration to many industrial designers, the 2013 Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Aerolithe (ref. PFC329-3400600) carefully mixes design cues taken from the vintage sports car with their traditional elements producing an object of an almost stunning beauty.
Limited to only a hundred (Yes, just a hundred. And, yes: I am looking at you, Breitling) of individually numbered pieces, the new Parmigiani Fleurier Transforma Rivages (ref. PFC228-3200100) automatic chronograph has its minimalistic yet distinctive-looking body crafted from lightweight titanium and high-tech carbon: a stunning combination of materials that we usually see in sport cars, space rockets, and expensive timekeepers.
The new Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Minute Repeater is a thoroughly executed tribute to the early XIX century Perrin Freres pocket watch that the Swiss brand recently restored for the Edouard and Maurice Sandoz Foundation (EMSF.) As you will see on the picture below, the pocket watch in question could be just another 200-year-old artifact, if not its peculiar face.
At the SIHH 2011 industry event, Parmigiani Fleurier has refreshed its Tonda line with a dressy and elegant Tonda 1950 (ref. PFC267-1002400-HA1241). The timepiece was going to be presented in a perfectly balanced, flawlessly proportioned case and featured only the data that you need: hours, minutes and seconds (just to make sure that it didn’t stop all of a sudden.)
The new member of their Atelier Collection, the elegant and imposing Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraph Savane brings you a winning combo of a high-grade in-house chronograph movement, a finely-crafted rose-gold body that is inspired by luxury wristwatches made in the 1930s, and, of course, a gorgeous dial with opaque amber inlays: something that you rarely see in a modern timekeeper.
