From something for the girls from Gc, to something for the boys.

[Press Release] The Gc Sport Class XXL Blackout with its imposing case of 45 mm makes this new addition to the Gc high –tech ceramic range for men a real eye –catcher. Setting a new trend through its particularly sophisticated matt finish for both the case and bracelet, the Sport Class XXL Blackout allies Swiss Made precision with cutting-edge design. An expressive enigmatic timepiece that makes a strong masculine statement for men who like to stand out in the crowd.

Inspired by the luxury car industry, where matt black became the byword in upscale refinement, the new Sport Class XXL Blackout adopts this elegant black sheen – a must-have for lovers of avant-garde design.

The choice of the matt finish, created through an additional stage in the ceramic production process, is indicative of the high quality standards and attention to detail embodied by Gc timepieces. With its oversize case, minute-engraved bezel and link bracelet all in black ceramic, this timepiece is a force to be reckoned with. This expressive all black timepiece makes a forceful appearance through its rendering of the iconic black and rose-gold combination of the Gc brand. The jet black matt dial is picked out with bold hand-applied indices and Arabic numerals, pointed at by tapered hands, all in rose gold with a central luminescent coating in the latest grey tint for maximum effect.

Like all Gc watches, the Sport Class XXL Blackout meets the exacting criteria of a Swiss Made timepiece and is equipped with a high precision Swiss Made movement, in this case a quartz chronograph with a 30-minutes and 60-second counter precise to 1/10 second. A unidirectional turning bezel, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a water resistance of 100 meters, assured by the screw down crown and screw-down engraved back case, also underline the qualitative aspect of this timepiece.

A commanding rugged design, the Sport Class XXL Blackout imposes itself upon the eye, making a very masculine statement of power and strength for the dedicated trendsetter

Parmigiani Bugatti Super Sport

Wow, check out this bad boy!

[Press Release] On the wrist of Bugatti test driver Pierre-Henri Raphanel, travelling at a top speed of 431 km/h, the latest iconic Parmigiani creation – the new Bugatti Super Sport watch – is the perfect model to accompany records to the end of time and become a legend.

An audacious contender boasting superb technical performance, fresh from the Bugatti automobile workshops in Molsheim, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport made history in June by setting a world land speed record for production sports cars.

A representative from the Guinness Book of Records confirmed the result at the Ehra-Lessien track.

This feat was matched by an unprecedented watchmaking achievement. Parmigiani Fleurier, the official partner of Bugatti since 2001, unveiled the second generation of its Bugatti models. A special first edition of 30 pieces.

In 2004, Parmigiani revolutionised the world of watchmaking by placing the entire movement of its Bugatti Type 370 watch on a transverse axis, just like a car engine block. A pillar assembly connected the calibre’s five plates and the train wheels cut in the shape of a car wheel.

In 2010, Parmigiani flips all the mechanical components of the new calibre Bugatti PF 372 onto a vertical axis, retaining the lateral time display so appreciated car drivers. *

In a world premiere, Parmigiani has successfully developed a 90° time setting system – the dial is positioned perpendicular to the display axis (hours/minutes) – by integrating a system of double pinions with bevel gearing. Like the complete movement, this unique and complex mechanical system, which allows the time to be displayed on the side, has been entirely designed and created in the workshops of the Fleurier manufacture (VMF).
