Now we both agreed it was time to look for new stimuli, and we will make room for new partnerships. However, we want to thank Parmigiani Fleurier for these last 15 years. They will always stay part of the Bugatti history and we wish them all the best for their future endeavors.
“We also would like to express our thanks to Bugatti for 15 years of fruitful partnership and the successes we achieved together”, Davide Traxler, CEO of Parmigiani Fleurier, added. “Indeed, the great collaboration we had inspired us many horological developments and mechanical wonders. Today, we are focusing on new watchmaking fields. We wish Bugatti all the best for its future projects.”
