Exotic cars and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the exotic automotive industry and even specific vehicles altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular products available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon
The partnership between Jacob & Co. and Bugatti began in 2019 with both industry leaders looking to embody the true spirit of both brands through a collection of never-before-seen luxury timepieces. The dynamic duo aims to incorporate the luxury qualities of hypercar and high-end timepiece development to help bridge the gap between the two industries. After the release of the iconic Bugatti Chiron chassis, the team at Jacob & Co. took to the drawing board to create a collection dedicated to taking watchmaking to impossible heights. The Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillion is the response that helps complement the multi-million dollar hypercar. Styled to mimic each other on two different scales, the Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon and Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport work in unison as the perfect performance-focused pair.
Continuing to highlight the vision of Bugatti and its journey towards pushing the boundaries of performance, the Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon features a perfect blend of luxury design and state-of-the-art movement technology. The Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon takes shape as a 44mm hyper watch crafted from DLC treated titanium, making its design lightweight and reliable for any collector. Beneath the clear sapphire crystal lies the true beauty, a skeletonized dial layout that is reimagined to represent the W16 engine platform developed by the Bugatti brand. With a quick push on the right-hand crown, the Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon comes to life with a crankshaft that turns and operates 16-pistons to mimic the process of an internal combustion engine. Delivering power to the timepiece is Jacob & Co.’s in-house JCAM37 manual-winding movement, which features a ‘flying’ tourbillon that is inclined to offer a closer look at the inner workings of the mechanism. With a highly-complex movement developed in-house, the JCAM37 provides a lengthy 60-hour power reserve that is indicated through a gas pump gauge on the dial. The transparent backcase gives owners a closer look into the craftsmanship and attention to detail of Jacob & Co. With hopes of it being a functional everyday timepiece, Jacob & Co. fits the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon with a comfortable black rubber strap and matching black DLC titanium deployant buckle. The Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is limited to only 126-pieces in its collection with a price tag of $1,500,000.
Why To Buy
A “why to buy” quickly turned into a “why to own” considering the Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is made in a limited batch of 126-pieces for those with the keys to a Bugatti in the garage. The long-standing heritage of Jacob & Co. and Bugatti mark the Chiron Tourbillon as a milestone for the two luxury powerhouses, making its appreciation on the secondary market skyrocket each day. The Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon represent a bridge between the two worlds, marrying engines with watches.
Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport
While the EB110 and Veyron models began the hype around the Bugatti name, the French automotive manufacturer represents more than a decade of design and engineering to help compete at the highest level. The Chiron platform help to carry the brand into a new generation performance, with more powerful variations of the chassis being developed behind the scenes at the Bugatti Atelier in Molsheim, France. The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport separates itself as an exclusive chassis that boasts mind-blowing performance spec, with only 60 examples available for the brand’s most qualified clientele. The hypercar defines itself as a reminder that Bugatti is continuously striving to achieve more power as the benchmark brand for the automotive industry.
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport features lightweight exterior upgrades that add aggressive styling geared towards agility. The body design is reimagined using a new front bumper, bigger air intakes, a larger rear diffuser, and a wider version of the iconic horseshoe grille. One of the most noticeable changes on the Chiron Pur Sport comes from the fixed rear spoiler, which sports an X-shape design that generates massive amounts of downforce for high-speed driving. At the heart of the beast lies Bugatti’s famous 8.0-Liter Quad-Turbocharged W16 engine, capable of producing over 1,500-horsepower and 1,180-pound-feet of torque. Managed by a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Bugatti Pur Sport launches from 0-60mph in just 2.59-seconds. The track-inspired interior layout includes a minimalist design, from the two-tone sport seats to its carbon-fiber trim elements that help to save weight while adding support. The interior of the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport deliberately presents a raw and sporty atmosphere to highlight its driver-oriented cockpit. Along with a newly updated exterior and interior, the Chiron Pur Sport receives updated technological features and driving dynamic modes to help connect a driver with any experience to the road. The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport perfectly embodies the brand at its current moment in history, with plenty of motivation to chase a new high top-speed.
Why To Buy
