2020 Jacob & Co’s new Bugatti Chiron tourbillon
Since the first batch of cars competed for the fastest time, clocks and cars have been closely linked.
Car fans love copy watches. They are satisfied with the accuracy, beauty and performance of the machine.
However, the movement of the watch cannot truly capture the feeling, energy and power of a high-performance car engine. That is, until now.
Bugatti Kailong Tourbillon by Jacobs
It started with the idea co-conceived by Jacob & Co. and Bugatti-how to reproduce the inner feeling of the iconic Bugatti 16-cylinder engine in the watch.
After almost a year of development, the answer here is the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. Everything is to pay tribute to the watchmaker. The design of the case was inspired by Chiron’s smooth lines. The movement or “engine block” (designed to replicate the Bugatti engine) was placed under a huge sapphire crystal for everyone to watch.
This is where it gets interesting: pressing the right crown of the clock, the engine starts to work-like a real internal combustion engine, the crankshaft turns and the piston pumps up and down. When the engine is running, the two “turbochargers” (four actual Chiron engines) on the side of the engine block increase the visual impact when rotating.
The Bugatti Chiron tourbillon clock is incredible in appearance and unbelievable in its realization (the movement is composed of 578 parts), it has done things that no one has ever tried-seamlessly combined with the engine and the watch together.
First of all, the incredible flying tourbillon movement is completely clean in design. It has been more than a year since Jacob & Co. replica watches worked with movement suppliers to achieve this amazing achievement.
The top and sides of the watch are sapphire crystals, making each side of the watch visible. Of course, the most attractive is engine animation. The crankshaft that drives the crankshaft is one of the smallest and most complex watch parts ever made of a solid piece of steel. Pistons that are difficult to manufacture are mounted on the crankshaft at various angles to maximize the effect.
The movement is completely suspended in four places and looks like Chiron’s actual car vibration. The movement actually floats inside the case-you can see it moving up and down inside the case. The engine block is composed of two “exhaust ports”, thus completing the design of the engine theme.
In addition to animation, there are fewer general themes. In addition to the flying tourbillon with the Jacob & Co. logo, anywhere on the front of the watch, the only other brand is the subtle EB logo on the engine compartment, with 16 pistons in the crankcase, ready and ready.
The whole watch is placed forwards to show the magnificent movement, so you can show your friends the tourbillon and animation at 30º tilt. The tourbillon’s windows are modeled on the Bugatti supercar’s iconic horseshoe grille.
The crown of the watch is located at the bottom of the case – the left crown sets the time, the middle crown is wound with a movement (60-hour power reserve) and animation, and then the right crown is pressed to start the animation.
The suspension of the movement brings another challenge to the movement designer, because they must create (and apply for a patent) a special automotive-style transverse system, so that the crown column is not affected by the movement of the movement up and down the case Mobile damage.
The power reserve for animation and the power reserve for timing are different, but both are wound around the mainspring, the movement rotates clockwise, and the engine animation rotates counterclockwise. At three o’clock, the power reserve indicator even has the universal air pump symbol on the side of the meter. chronowatchmall.com
