To complement the Chiron, Bugatti's longtime partner Parmigiani Fleurier has crafted a luxurious timepiece that perfectly mimics the beauty showcased in the automobile. Following a preview over a year ago, the Bugatti Type 390 has now been completed.

Referred to as “an engine block on the wrist,” Parmigiani truly went to work on the watch, developing an entirely unique mechanism for the Type 390, along with an equally special case to house it.

The Bugatti Type 390 not only features a tourbillon movement, but it also welcomes a horizontal cylindrical mechanism consisting of two barrels that take on the majority of the work, “transmitted” to the hands on the skeleton dial through three planetary gear trains. This in turn encompasses nine of the world's smallest ball bearings.

The watches settling lever, jumper, yoke and yoke spring have all been done away with for a single rod clamp, here noting a torque limiter that prevents the manual mechanism from being over-wound.

In addition, the Bugatti Type 390 is water-resistant while also boasting an 80-power reserve, allowing the timepiece to go untouched for over three days and still keep time.

On the cosmetic side of things, the watch's case is made from 18-karat rose or white gold, connected to a luxe Hermès alligator strap.

Unfortunately, not all Chiron owners will get their hands on the Bugatti Type 390, as Parmigiani Fleurier is only producing 10 units.
