Jacob & Co.’s Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon

Ever imagined a timepiece managing to capture the emotions, energy, and the power of a high-performance car engine? The first ultra-high-end, completely bespoke watch that Jacob & Co. has designed together with Bugatti is one such piece. Insane, isn’t it? Made with black titanium this watch is 20mm thick and has a diameter of 54x44mm and a power reserve of 60h. What steals one’s attention is the complicated mechanism of the watch – a tiny functioning W16 engine that looks exactly a miniature replica of the huge 16-cylinder engine that is made to move the Buggati Chiron, and the magnificent JCAM37 movement. This marvellous watch’s functions include hours and minutes display, one-minute Tourbillon cage inclined at 30°, W16 engine in a sapphire block, animation on-demand with a pusher on the right, that creates rotation of pistons and crankshaft and a power reserve indicator marked at 3 o’clock. ‘A true engine for the wrist’ – as called by the brands The Jacob & Co. x Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is one dream piece!   - Web: luxatic.com.
