To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the partnership between Parmigiani Fleurier and Bugatti, Parmigiani Fleurier is unveiling three limited editions of the Bugatti timepiece. The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Mythe, the Bugatti Victoire and the Bugatti Révélation.
The brand has decided to take the iconic Bugatti 370 model, and its transverse tubular movement, as its basis. The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti 370 model, which marked the creation of the partnership in 2004, demonstrates the brand’s cutting-edge creative spirit and the quest for technical excellence which made it possible.
The Bugatti Mythe, the Bugatti Victoire and the Bugatti Révélation are the new versions of this Anniversary Limited Edition. These three pieces share an aesthetic which harks back to the artisan’s traditional techniques. In this respect, the collection moves away from the hi-tech, futuristic spirit which prevailed in some of the Bugatti creations of this first decade: the titanium of the Bugatti Vitesse case middle, for example, or the black carbon of the Bugatti Super Sport dial.
The Bugatti Mythe
The first of the Anniversary Edition timepieces, the aesthetic of the Bugatti Mythe is based on an emblematic Bugatti component: the legendary Type 57 grille. This grille, which graced the very first Bugatti cars, has a striking structure, formed of lines rather than mesh. These lines are echoed in the watch dial and they extend downward beyond its perimeter, affirming the Art Deco style which made the historic grille such a success.
The Bugatti Mythe evokes this marriage through the dual-colour effect of the surfaces of its case middle. A mottled anthracite grey surface, which reinforces its “industrial” appearance, represents this side of the spectrum; the burnished, gold surfaces reflect the refined, artisan side.
