Jacob&Co Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ - Or How to Spend $580k On a Watch
$580,000 could get you a whole lot of uber-cool vintage cars or this Bugatti-inspired watchby Tudor Rus, on
Supercar-inspired watches? Yeah, we’ve seen our fair share of those. You’d also think that this fad would go away at some point, but apparently, there are plenty of rich people willing to pay a fortune on a watch that matches their garage speed demon.
For those, luxury companies such as Geneva-based Jacob&Co are happy to create the most outlandish timepieces inspired by actual hypercars. And that’s how we can tell you more about the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+-inspired Twin Turbo Furious watch.
The Twin Turbo moniker is not exactly accurate, but we’ll let it slide
As we all know too well, the Chiron packs a quad-turbo W-16 engine, so for a watch that’s inspired by the hypercar’s most extreme version, we expected a little more accuracy name-wise. We know, we might come out as bitter but it had to be said.
Technicalities aside, the Twin Turbo Furious will be even more exclusive than the Chiron Super Sport 300+, and that’s because Jacobs&Co will only assemble 18 pieces of its opulent watch, while Bugatti plans to build just 30 units of the Chiron SS 300+.
It’s not just the limited run that makes the watch special. It also combines a twin triple-axis tourbillon and a minute repeater. What’s more, the watch case is made of forged carbon fiber, as seen inside the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Here’s a detailed list of specs as provided by Jacob&Co:
- Components: 832
- Power reserve: 50 hours
- Frequency: 21,600 vib/h (3Hz)
- Jewels: 75
- Diameter: 57x52 mm
- Case material: 18K rose gold 5N and carbon fiber
- Crown: 18k rose gold 5N
- Water resistance: 30 m
And in case you thought the Jacob&Co Twin Turbo Furious looked expensive, well, that’s because it is. At $580,000, this timepiece is clearly aimed at the One Percent. The same One Percent that can afford splashing $3.9 million on Bugatti’s 304.773-mph Chiron Super Sport 300+.
