Parmigiani's Latest 'Wrist Engine' Draws Influence from the Bugatti Chiron

1306 afisari
Parmigiani Fleurier just debuted their latest Bugatti collaboration timepiece which pays tribute to the lastest Chiron supercar, which boasts a 1500hp quad-turbocharged W16 engine.
As with previous models, which you can see in our Parmigiani Fleurier archives, the Bugatti Coaxial Type 390 timepiece features automobile design cues, such as a cylindrical mechanical movement with a flying tourbillon that is reminiscent of an engine.
The manually wound movement, caliber PF390 measures 29.20 mm - 37.50 mm x 12.5 mm thick. It beats at 4Hz (28,800 vph), has an 80-hour power reserve, 302 components, and 32 jewels. Notably, the watch has a patent pending for the movement’s triangular coupling system and another for the 12° articulated case. Not to mention, it includes the world’s smallest ever ball bearing.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 390 case measures 42.5 mm x 53.00 mm x 19.5 mm and is available in rose or white gold, each with two 10-piece limited editions, for a total of 40 pieces.

The Type 390 features a streamlined asymmetrical case with an upper portion that can articulate by 12 degrees to improve on-wrist comfort. The caliber itself—also an all-new creation—is modular in nature and features a worm gear that assists in transferring power to the time indication of the piece. From its planetary gear train to its dual-barrel “fuel tank”—series-coupled mainspring barrels with an 80-hour power reserve—the new piece is packed with automotive-inspired DNA straight from the Chiron.
During a presentation early this morning at the Bugatti factory in France, Michel Parmigiani was quick to note the appeal of this modular caliber, both in terms of serviceability as well as in the brand’s capability to expand the model line with a variety of complications. Some of you may remember the Type 390 Prototype the brand launched a little while back. Since then, the case has been significantly refined for the production version.
This initial presentation will be offered in white and rose gold ($295,000), though Parmigiani has stated that other case offerings will be coming in the new year. Further to this, the brand is also hearing the call for customization that has been echoing through the marketplace.
