Approximate Cost:113 052.00 GBP
After 20 years experience of restoration and creation, Michel Parmigiani set up a Complete Manufacturing enterprise in Switzerland with the assistance of The Sandoz Family Foundation, and has produced some remarkable timepieces in the past ten years.
Inspired by the classic motor car company, the Pamigiani Bugatti Type 370 is a sports car for the wrist that turns time telling on its side with the first-ever transversal movement.
Resembling an engine block, the watch’s movement is divided into five separate plates, with hours and minutes appearing on its side and push-button crowns for setting and winding on the back.
A patented power reserve ensures 10 days of walking around time, while the eight-part case includes six sapphire crystals which reveal automotive-inspired components including double-rim shaped wheels. Tailor-made Hermès straps are suited to the wearer, and purchasers can count on being invited to Fleurier for a factory tour with Michel Parmigiani. Limited to 150 pieces — 50 each of red, silver and black dials, and only 50 individual pieces per year for the next three years.
