On the occasion of the Geneva International Motor Show 2016, Parmigiani Fleurier is unveiling a new milestone of its partnership with Bugatti, the PF-Bugatti 390 concept watch. Not to be outdone ;-), Bugatti is unveiling a milestone of its own: the 16-cylinder, 1,500 horsepower Bugatti Chiron (loads of pics below!). The PF-Bugatti 390 Concept Watch is conceived as a motor-block on the wrist. Parmigiani conceptualizes the various components of the watch as synonymous with the Bugatti engine (e.g. two barrels for power supply, an analogy with the two fuel tanks of the Bugatti car). The cylindrical movement includes a flying tourbillon, and transmits power along an axial (rather than flat) configuration. Unlike the Hublot La Ferrari, which has a similar cylindrical movement configuration but keeps the time display on the same vertical plane, the the Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 390 uses a worm screw to convert the energy transmission to a horizontal plane so that the time can be displayed on a conventional dial.
The tourbillon has a diameter larger than that of the concentric tube, and operates a 4Hz (28,800 vph)
In addition to basic hours/minutes time display, there is also a power reserve indicator and torque limiting system to prevent overwinding.
More details to come (what the watch will be cased in, production, price, etc.).
