Thought Jacob & Co.’s last Bugatti-inspired watch was outrageous? Well, friends, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
The latest watch to emerge from Bugatti’s partnership with the Swiss watchmaker is called the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+, and it’s ridiculous. Costing some $580,000 (around P29.2 million) and set to be built in a limited edition of just three examples, the watch is inspired by Bugatti’s 483kph longtail Chiron.
It “echoes the materials and colors” of the record breaker, with an 88-piece case made from forged carbon (to match the Chiron’s bodywork) and titanium. Said case measures 57mm by 52mm, which is bloody massive. Meanwhile, the movement features two triple-axis tourbillons, a decimal minute repeater, and a mono-pusher chronograph with a “reference time indicator.” It also tells the actual time, which is most handy.
Made from 832 tiny components, the manually wound movement is fantastically complicated. Astonishing in its engineering, whatever you make of its design of the case it’s contained within.
