#2: Bugatti Veyron ($1,700,000) with the Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 370 ($280,000)
For part 2, I have chosen this unisex timepiece from esteemed watchmaker Parmigiani Fleurier, truly holds up to the one and only Bugatti Veyron, in both design and price. The Veyron is still ranked #1 in the world, for both the most expensive and the fastest car, costing $1.7 mil and peaking at 267 mph. For this piece, I’m sure you’re wondering why the face is on the side of the body. Serving for more than style, the vertically angled face serves lets your hands remain on the wheel while you read it, following the traditional spirit of the “gentleman driver”. The “engine” of the watch shows off the transversal movement and eight-piece gold case.
Taking three years of research to perfect, the Bugatti type 370 even features gears cut to match classic Bugatti rims. Note the one dial on the watch “engine”, counting down the 10 day power supply, which includes a special electric pen that rewinds it in 5 seconds flat. A satin-like finish is applied to all models, along with diamond studs, gives a smooth elegance worthy of the Bugatti name. It was originally available only to Bugatti owners, but with a even higher demand by collectors of Parmigiani watches than the supply of Veyrons, it is available to the public.
If you can hold out for the Bugatti 16C Galibier, you’ll find a Parmigiani tourbillon dash clock that pops-out as a wrist watch. Which is really nice of them to include, saving you that extra trip to the watch store. And we all know how long that extra trip will take driving an 1000HP, 16-cylinder, supercharged Veyron.
