Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon Baguette

The latest bespoke timepiece from Jacob & Co. is an update of the company’s Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. After inking a partnership deal with luxurious automobile company Bugatti in 2019, Jacob & Co. has released a number of delectable watches based on various Bugatti’s.

The bedazzled Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon Baguette Black and Orange is inspired by the iconic Bugatti 16-cylinder engine. A revamp of the original watch released last year, this updated version is powered by a 578-component manually wound movement designed to replicate the Bugatti’s two turbochargers. The movement appears to be floating in mid-air (it’s suspended in four spots) while the engine block animation is “one of the smallest and most complicated watch parts ever manufactured,” according to Jacob & Co.
Along with the intricate movement, the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is adjourned with precious stones. The 18K white gold case is detailed with 190 baguette white diamonds, 109 baguette black sapphires, and 42 baguette orange sapphires. There’s also an additional 60 black sapphire baguettes in the crowns and pushers.

It’s another masterful creation from Jacob & Co. that’s sure to be seen on the wrist of a movie star or athlete in the coming weeks. Jacob & Co. haven’t released a price, but if you think you can afford this enigmatic wristwatch, you can hit up the watchmaker themselves.
Sometimes owning a multi-million-dollar supercar isn’t enough. Some folks also need a diamond-encrusted replica of the engine mounted on their wrist as well. This is why Jacob & Co.’s Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon Baguette Black and Orange Sapphires watch exists.

Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon Specs
In partnership with Bugatti, noted luxury watch brand Jacob & Co. has just released a highly technical watch inspired by the absurdly powerful Bugatti Chiron. The tourbillon houses a blinged-out miniature reproduction of the Chiron’s W16-cylinder engine.

Sporting 190 baguette white diamonds, 169 baguette black sapphires, and 42 baguette orange sapphires invisibly set in an 18k white gold case. To properly fix the stones in the case, Jacob & Co. stated that the get-setters used new proprietary techniques and advanced technologies.

The 55mm by 44mm case sports the similar flowing lines of the Chiron and a few Bugatti logos to make the watch’s inspiration clear. Inside the case is a replica of the Chiron’s 1,500 horsepower 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine, with 16 tiny pistons and a steel crankshaft that actually move as they do in the real engine. To complete the illusion, two turbochargers spin in tandem with the cylinders (two less than the actual car, but likely two more superchargers than you’re wearing right now). Framing the engine are two “exhausts” which complete the theme.
It’s equipped with Jacob and Co.’s 578-component JCAM37 manual winding movement, which is suspended in four places with parts reminiscent of the Chiron’s automobile shocks. The shocks are visible through the sapphire crystal window and provide a 60-hour power reserve that’s indicated by the gas pump symbol on the side of the gauge (because why not).

Even the crowns pay homage to the famed supercar. Set into the back of the case like exhaust pipes, the left crown sets the time, the middle crown winds both the movement and the engine animation, and the right-hand crown starts the animation.
Yes, it is an extremely gaudy and intricate timepiece, but if you’re a Bugatti fan, subtlety is probably not your thing anyway. While most people aren’t in the market for a watch in this price range, it is a beautiful example of artwork, engineering, and design. Just like the car that serves as its inspiration.

If black and orange sapphires aren’t your thing, the watch is also available in black, blue, or grey titanium, rose gold, and diamond baguette versions as well as one with a case made entirely out of a single block of sapphire crystal.

Jacob & Co.’s Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon Baguette Black and Orange Sapphires is going for $560,000, which is a steal compared to the 3 million dollar supercar on which it’s based. Good thing you loaded up on all that Dogecoin.
