It started with an idea conceived by Jacob & Co. together with Bugatti - how to reproduce the visceral sensation of the iconic Bugatti 16-cylinder engine in a timepiece.
After almost a year of development working together, they created the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. Everything in this timepiece is designed to honor the Chiron hyper sports car. The sleek tonneau-shaped case is inspired by the flowing lines of the Chiron. The movement powers the timing functions, a 60-second flying tourbillon and, most importantly, a fully operational recreation of the Bugatti iconic W16 engine. The entire movement is on display beneath a massive piece of sapphire crystal.
The Bugatti Chiron Baguette Blue Sapphires features approximately 22.29 carats of Blue Sapphires that adorn the 18K white gold case, the three crowns and pushers, the buckle of the rubber strap, and one Blue Sapphires on the tourbillon with a 30° incline.
