An exclusive timepiece with
A watch honoring the Bugatti Chiron
After almost a full year of development, Jacob & Co. now presented the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon, designed to honor the Chiron1 and its legendary 16-cylinder engine in a timepiece. The case is inspired by the flowing lines of the Chiron and the movement, or “engine block,” intended to duplicate the Bugatti engine, is placed under a massive sapphire crystal.
Two “turbochargers” (down from four in the actual Chiron engine) on the side of the engine block spin while the engine runs.
Completely new and challenging development
The incredible flying tourbillon movement is a completely clean-sheet design. Framing the engine block are two “exhausts,” completing the engine theme of the design.
Beyond the flying tourbillon with the Jacob & Co. logo, the only other branding anywhere on the front of the watch is the subtle EB logo on the engine compartment, where the crankshaft holds 16 pistons, poised and ready for action. The Jacob & Co. x Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is a true engine on the wrist.
