Remember last month when we presented a $ 280,000 watch with a functional Bugatti W16 engine inside? This is no longer the case. In fact, Jacob & Co. (not my company, by the way) has released another timepiece in its collection that is more complicated and more reserved for those with deep and dark pockets.
Called Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious under the corporate big Complication Masterpieces (it couldn’t be more honest than that), this $ 580,000 watch pays homage to the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ hypercar record announced last year.
This very chic and expensive watch comes in two flavors – one in black DLC grade 5 titanium and carbon fiber and the other in 18K 5N pink gold and carbon fiber.
Unlike the previous Jacob & Co. watch with a functional W16 miniature inside, the Twin Turbo Furious is inspired by the $ 3.89 million car to which it pays homage. The materials and colors used are similar to the hypercar, and more importantly, even its performance and complexity transcends the watch.
In fact, the luxury watch includes two triple-axis tourbillon escapements in black titanium and a decimal minute repeater. “Very few brands create decimal repeaters,” says Forbes, which is a complicated process that involves 832 components and difficult to understand if you are not a watch lover.
But here again, the 88-piece forged case measures 57×52 mm with materials inspired by the Bugatti, a record. While the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is limited to only 30 buyers, the Jacob & Co. watch is also limited to only 18 buyers of each option.
If you’re one of those who bought the Chiron Super Sport 300+, we think you should pair it with this watch. This price tag will not be an object for you, we are sure.
