Why Jacob & Co.’s Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire is a collector’s watch

Jacob & Co. copy once again impressed us with its watchmaking ability and cool design beauty. This time, the brand drew inspiration from a missing mythical Bugatti car-the end result was an amazing watch. Just last year, Jacob & Co. and Bugatti (Bugatti) signed an agreement to manufacture co-branded timepieces-thus unveiling several new watches. Now, Jacob&Co has launched Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire to commemorate the mysterious disappearance of the black version of the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe in the 1930s. This unique watch is crafted from 18 carats of smoked black gold and set with 22.97 carats of black sapphires. What’s under the hood is as incredible as the exterior-a car worthy of its honor.

Around 1940, Bugatti shipped the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe in four different colors from its factory in Morsheim, France to the factory in Bordeaux to ensure that they were not harmed by the Nazis. When the car arrived, the black La Voiture Noire (black car) was no longer part of the transportation.

To commemorate the original only unique car (and a tribute car), Jacob & Co. and Bugatti imitated the beauty of black in a format that fits the wrist. Twin Turbo Furious La Montre Noire Bugatti Edition is completely refined from 18 carat white gold. In addition, the watch uses natural French baguette-cut sapphires instead of the cheaper black diamonds used by many brands. The 88 angular cases are set with 344 gems weighing nearly 23 carats. The invisible setting shows the sapphire next to the sapphire, no metal is visible. The black-painted gold and black-painted titanium foldable buckle is set with 18 black sapphires.

The mechanical engine of the watch-visible from the front (without dial) and the back of the case-is very complex, with 832 individual components-most of which have been blacked out. The Jacob & Co. manual winding JCFM05 movement showcases two three-axis tourbillons that rotate at different acceleration speeds to compensate for the timing caused by gravity when the Great men watch is in different positions on the wrist. error.

In addition to overcoming gravity, the watch is also equipped with a decimal minute repeater. You can use a hammer (seen at 12:00 on the main dial) and gong to adjust the time at will. However, it will not adjust the hour and quarter hour, but will adjust the hour, adding 10 minutes after the hour, and adding minutes after the last 10 minute interval. The chime system has a patented dual mechanical safety function, so the sequence will not be interrupted. At the 6:00 position, the pointer of the power reserve indicator moves slowly from the big box to the small box in an arc to show that the 48-hour battery continues to decrease. This is achieved through a clever planetary system.

Jacob & Co further adopted a highly accurate single-push column-wheel chronograph equipped with a “reference time” indicator inspired by racing pit plates. The minutes of the chronograph are displayed on the upper dial at 6:00, and the seconds are displayed at 12:00. This unique watch has a striking red Bugatti logo on the front and center. With the mysterious beauty of this watch, people have to wonder what other colors Jacob & Co. will eventually show. Currently, all the fancy features in this watch are expected to be destined to be true collectors watches.
