All over and over again we see connections between watch produces and vehicle companies come and afterward go. Apparently, the quicker the vehicle the more blustery the relationship with their time-keeping accomplice. Not so with Bugatti and Parmigiani.

From 2004 to 2014 the extravagance, the innovation and the craftsmanship of both the Veyron and the ‘370 have developed in lock step. For 2015 Parmigiani will deliver three models to commemorate their decade together.
