Just last year, Bugatti and Jacob & Co. signed an agreement to create timepieces that pay tribute to the power and performance of the two brands. Initially, two timepieces were created: Twin Turbo Furious and Epic X Chrono. Now, although the two companies have launched a new product line: Bugatti Chiron, to commemorate Bugatti’s super sports car.
In order to capture the spirit and energy of the high-performance Bugatti Chiron, Jacob & Co. spent only about a year in the development phase, and then launched a new Bugatti Chiron tourbillon worth $280,000. The watch is equipped with a movement imitating a Bugatti 16-cylinder engine, equipped with a crankshaft and pistons. In fact, the 16-cylinder piston engine of the hand-wound movement consists of a large number of 578 hand-assembled parts.
It not only provides hours and minutes, but also a newly designed one-minute tourbillon frame, tilted 30 degrees, provides a spectacular view of the constantly rotating escapement, and compensates for timing errors caused by the gravity effect of the watch on the watch. In certain positions of the wrist. Jacob & Co. worked with the movement designer to develop this extraordinary new escapement, which itself took a whole year. It can be seen through a hole similar to a Bugatti grill.
Even more impressive is that this watch is equipped with a pusher on the right side of the case. When it is activated, it rotates the crankshaft and pushes the movement’s piston up and down-just like in a car engine. There are two turbochargers in the watch, which also rotate when the engine is running to increase the impact. According to Jacob & Co., the solid stainless steel crankshaft is one of the smallest and most complex parts manufactured in the watchmaking world.
The movement of the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is suspended in the case, with four shock absorbers similar to those of a car. Due to these vibrations, when the wearer moves, the movement actually floats slightly up and down inside the case. The creation of this patented design is also challenging, because it requires a special traverse system, so the crown column can withstand the up and down movement of the upper case in the case. The JCAM37 movement is further equipped with Incabloc anti-shock system-all of which is to pay tribute to the super sports car that inspired it.
The powerful black titanium case is inspired by Chiron’s lines, and thanks to the impressive and difficult-to-manufacture sapphire crystal, the wearer can see the engine inside. Even the sides of the case are made of sapphire to improve the visibility of all moving parts. You can see the EB (Bugatti) logo on the engine compartment and the Jacob & Co. logo on the flying tourbillon. At the bottom of the case is the crown for setting the time and winding movement, which provides a power reserve of 60 hours. high luxury store
The black rubber strap further emphasizes the secret appearance of the black case. Apart from black and steel, the only color is the bold Chiron blue for the hands and certain moving parts. With a 16-cylinder piston engine, one might say that this Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon “fires on all cylinders.”
