Jacob & Co. The most outrageous, boldest, and even most expensive watch. Their latest model, Astronomia Solar, has an 18k rose gold case that is used to form a rough outline, and the space in between is filled with sapphires, allowing the owner to enjoy the movement at a glance.
Water resistance is only 30m, which is understandable for the complexity of the watch. Moving on, some people may notice that there is no visible crown. Well, setting the time and winding the movement is actually done using two folding 18k rose gold “bows” on the case back. Unfortunately, we did not take a picture of the case, but it is similar to the system you have previously discovered in some iterations of astronomers.
Swiss watchmaker Jacob & Co. cooperates with French super sports car manufacturer Bugatti
2.3 seconds Bugatti Chiron (Bugatti Chiron) takes about your complete time to read this sentence, it can bend from 0 to 60 mph.
Chiron is an engineering marvel. Its 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine can produce 1,500 hp of huge power and 1,600 Nm of torque. In general, the supercar can reach a top speed of 261mph.
To miniaturize the all-around super sports car on the wrist requires ambitious imagination and technical bravery-Swiss watchmaker Jacob & Co. has attracted much attention.
In 2019, the French car manufacturer and the Swiss watch manufacturer signed a multi-year agreement to cooperate in the development of a series of timepieces. Twin Turbo Furious and Epic x Chrono mark the first two timepieces of this partnership.
Now, they released their third watch, the Jacob & Co x Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon.
Jacob & Co. tried to copy the Bugatti (Bugatti) engine block to the timepiece, full of crankshafts, pistons and turbochargers, and wrapped in a sapphire, this is a striking visual feat .
By pushing the crown, the crankshaft rotates, the piston starts pumping, and the turbocharger rotates.
The manual winding flying tourbillon JCAM37 movement runs at 21,000 vph and consists of 578 components. It can be expected that it took nearly a year to develop this ingenious movement.
It is suspended in the housing in a manner similar to Chiron shock absorbers.
The flying tourbillon is further tilted 30 degrees, allowing you to peek into other components including the escapement.
The watchmaker said that the crankshaft made by the movement is made by the movement and is one of the smallest best aaa replica watch parts he has ever produced.
The entire movement, including the working model of the “W16 engine”, is housed in a 54x44mm black titanium alloy large curved case.
The shape of the shell is not very similar to the grille on the Chiron.
Interestingly, you will see three crowns on this timepiece, all of which are also made of titanium.
The left crown is used to set the time, the middle crown is for the movement (with a 60-hour power reserve) and the “engine movement” winding, while the right crown is for the “engine” start.
This means that Chiron owners will not blink when they consider spending 10% of the car’s “accessories” on their wrists.
This fake watches for men is not a limited edition, but you can only imagine with the craftsmanship and man-hours of assembling the watch, and only a small part will be created.
Did we also mention that it can display the time?
