To coincide with the historic unveiling of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, a new timepiece has been unveiled to go along with it.  Swiss luxury watchmaker Parmigiani released its new Bugatti Super Sport timepiece created to complement the supercar.

Touted by Parmigiani as “The Fastest Watch in the World” (the 16.4 Super Sport is billed as the fastest car in the world), this watch embodies the luxury brand perfectly. The Bugatti Super Sport watch’s case mirrors the standard Parmigiani curved tear drop lug, and features a set of bending lugs in traditional form. You’ll also find a partially carbon fiber dial, which has been placed perpendicular to the axis. This was accomplished by integrating a system of double pinions with bevel gearing.

The manually wound Calibre Parmigiani 372 (complete with a power reserve of 10 days) was designed in two planes in order to match the contours of the new Bugatti watch. Six sapphire crystals reveal the fabulous movement made up of 372 parts. The bridges struts its stuff with gold black, côtes de Genève and satin finishes. Hermes Paris designed the strap and the Bugatti logo is showcased on the dial while the Parmigiani name is on the side.

There aren’t many of these gems available, with a limited run of 30 pieces. The Parmigiani Bugatti Super Sport watch is packaged in an 18k white gold case and is priced at $259,000.
