Another masterpiece by Parmigiani Fleurier, the Bugatti Aerolithe is a bold timepiece that bears resemblance to the legendary car of the same name. It was designed to pay tribute to the 1935 Bugatti Aerolithe Coupe, whose futuristic design elements still inspire designers today. Just like Parmigiani’s other Bugatti timepieces, the Aerolithe combines masterful engineering with a sporty design by incorporating Bugatti elements that can be seen from all angles.
The Bugatti Aerolithe is powered by one of Parmigiani Fleurier’s automatic movements, the Caliber PF335, which is wholly created in-house. Equipped with a flyback chronograph, the watch enables the user to stop, reset, and restart the chronograph with the single press of a button. A truly unique characteristic, the chronograph buttons are located opposite the crown, on the left side of the case, making the buttons more accessible and easier to grip.
Titanium and white gold are combined to create the Aerolithe’s redesigned case that boasts a more slender profile than previous Parmigiani chronographs. The dial is boldly styled with bright red accents and houses a date aperture, small seconds dial and a 30-minute counter.
Parmigiani Fleurier's Bugatti Aerolithe is available in two versions:
