This contemporary mechanical timepiece by Parmigiani Fleurier takes its inspiration from Bugatti Aérolithe Concept car created by Jean Bugatti in 1930s. Crafted from light weight but highly flammable magnesium alloy, the body of from Bugatti Aérolithe car was designed in two parts and joined by an ingenious riveted dorsal seam. However, this classic creation from Bugatti disappeared soon after its debut in 1935 leaving just a few photographs.
The counters at 3 and 9 o'clock have keen angles and are finished with a circular satin grain. Once again, lasers were used as satin-finishing within a recess would be impossible. The stepped counter at 3 o'clock is formed of three half-levels, each of which has a different textured effect. Finally, the rhodium-plated indications were formed using a technique which builds up the material by focussing a high-intensity laser beam on it.
The Delta-shaped hour and minute hands, the red "1" numeral on the date and the double hand at 9 o'clock all bear the stylistic hallmarks of Parmigiani Fleurier. Other striking elements are the famous lugs featuring the dorsal seam of the Bugatti Aérolithe, the strap inspired by the embossed pattern of the manufacturer's seats, and the deployant buckle, which is textured to match the dial.
The Bugatti Aérolithe Performance houses the proprietary PF335 self winding movement, which boasts a flyback chronograph module and has a power reserve of 50 hours. Bearing 86 jewels, the movement is decorated with "Côtes de Genève” finishes respecting the classic watchmaking traditions.
