You might remember the original Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 370 from our original Top 10 list of car watches. The splendidly complex (and fittingly expensive) timepiece features a unique sideways-mounted manual barrel movement that displays the time on the side so as to obviate the necessity for the driver to – heaven forbid – remove his hand from the wheel to see the time.

In honor of the Veyron Fbg par Hermes, only twenty of these new Faubourg editions – so named for Hermes' famous headquarters in Paris – will be offered in either brushed white gold with dark brown dial and strap or rose gold with light brown, to match the car's original colors. While it may seem like a ridiculous luxury for the rest of us, this epitome of the "if you have to ask" mantra will surely be a must-have for owners of the Veyron Fbg.
