The $1 Million Jacob & Co. Twin-Turbo Furious Bugatti “La Montre Noire”

For those of you who think bespoke watches and supercars go hand in hand, you have not met the jaw-dropping Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti “La Montre Noire”. Once again, Jacob & Co. managed to deliver more than just a design statement with this extraordinary Bugatti-themed watch.

Known for their unique timepieces, the brilliant team behind Jacob & Co. always tries to create awe-inspiring timekeeping creations – “La Montre Noire” is just the latest watch to be featured on their impressive list.

This new timekeeping marvel takes us back in time, as the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe cannot be ignored. The only black version disappeared around 1940 when Bugatti decided to hide it, along with other cars, to keep it safe during WWII. Jacob & Co. has created a unique piece based on the blacked-out Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe. The new watch features two triple-axis tourbillon regulators and a decimal minute repeater while showing an overall alien-like aesthetic.

The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti “La Montre Noire” also comes with a 57-millimetre 18k black gold case, featuring 344 baguette-cut black sapphires. It consists of a black Cordura strap with a PVD titanium clasp, a buckle in black gold, and 18 baguette-cut black sapphires.

The visual extravagance of Jacob & Co. continues on the inside, where the “La Montre Noire” benefits from an ultra-complex mechanism comprising 832 tiny components. And since it’s inspired by an iconic supercar, this watch also features a chronograph; the stopwatch mechanism incorporates an original “reference time” indicator.

There’s also a small opening in the dial at 6 o’clock that indicates a reference time in minutes and seconds – a reference that can be set via the crown. Furthermore, the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire also features an impressive decimal repeater. Due to the ingenious planetary system, the hand points to a full power reserve on the left then moves to the right as the 48-hour backup power is depleted.

The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire is a unique piece that will set you back a cool USD 1,000,000.      - Web: Luxatic
