Jacob Arabo, Founder and Chairman of Jacob & Co., has formed a vision of watchmaking that is truly unique. Renowned for its flamboyant designs, the brand also has the capacity to bring to life some of the most disruptive and impressive developments in the industry. A case in point is the brand’s latest creation in the frame of its partnership with Bugatti, an exceptional piece in many respects. The Jean Bugatti Chronograph relies on a remarkable technical concept, one of the most complex developments we have seen in a while… It also signals a new design direction for the brand. A technical masterpiece that is more classical, less exuberant, but no less fascinating, as we’ll show you in our latest in-depth video. 

Announced at Baselworld 2019, the partnership between Bugatti and Jacob & Co. has already given birth to some spectacular watches based on the Epic X Chrono, the Twin Turbo and the Twin Turbo Furious. And naturally, there is the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. This tribute to the eponymous Supercar, inspired by its flowing lines, stages a captivating and animated engine block under its sapphire crystal. Designed to reproduce the Bugatti 16-cylinder engine, the Chiron is regulated by a 30º inclined tourbillon. Push the right-hand crown of the timepiece and the engine comes to life – its crankshaft turns, and the 16 pistons pump up and down, just like a real engine.

Created to honour Jean Bugatti, the latest watch to emerge from this partnership is no less spectacular. The Jacob & Co. Jean Bugatti Tourbillon Chronograph relies on an impressive technical concept, much more complex than it might appear at first glance. Fitted with a double tourbillon and chronograph, which is not a common marriage, the watch has a (relatively speaking) traditional, conservative design – at least for Jacob. But as we said, there is much more than meets the eye…
