Twin Turbo Furious Baguette White Diamonds & Blue Sapphires

Story

The Twin Turbo Furious takes the exceptionally cool and uniquely complex Twin Turbo concept and takes it to the next level by adding a Monopusher Chronograph and Pit Board time difference calculator to the original's twin triple-axis tourbillon and decimal minute repeater. With its painstakingly hand-decorated and hand-assembled 832 components, the Twin Turbo Furious is a true Grand Complication Masterpiece that offers a singular combination of ultra-high-end mechanisms, all exclusive to Jacob & Co.

The Twin Turbo and Twin Turbo Furious combine the exhilarating energy experienced in the world's fastest automobiles with the unparalleled refinement and mechanical complexity only present in the universe of haute horlogerie. Powering the Twin Turbo Furious' main time display and monopusher chronograph functionalities are its twin triple-axis tourbillons: the most complicated, technically most challenging and visually most enthralling in the history of tourbillons. Encased in their delicately finished and ultra-light-weight cages, spinning through space in a succession of lightning fast, yet calculated movements, the Twin Turbo Furious can depend on two regulating organs. Each of these triple-axis tourbillons are composed of a stunning total of 104 components - and yet weighing a truly featherweight 1.15 grams.

Part of the Twin Turbo's 832-component JCFM05 Manufacture Jacob & Co caliber is a decimal minute repeater - the most exotic and rarest of all chiming complications. Push the slide set into the left-hand side of the Twin Turbo Furious' highly engineered case - crafted from 18K White Gold and carbon fiber and set with diamonds and blue sapphires -- to hear the crystal-clear sound of its cathedral gongs.

The Twin Turbo Furious is yet another groundbreaking Jacob & Co creation, one that is like no other to have ever existed in fine watchmaking before. Be the one to feel the energy of its two beating hearts and listen to its movingly beautiful chime - experience haute horlogerie like never before.

Twin Triple Axis Tourbillons

The Twin Triple-Axis Tourbillon is the most complicated, technically most challenging and visually most encapsulating among all tourbillons. Whereas the tourbillon was originally invented to be a single-axis, rotating platform to carry the regulating organ of a mechanical pocket watch for improved timekeeping performance, the Twin Turbo brings this 220-year-old invention into the future of fine watchmaking.

Through cutting-edge engineering design and state-of-the-art manufacturing and hand-assembly techniques, the Twin Turbo's double triple-axis tourbillons have become the very ultimate solution in tourbillon-enhanced chronometric performance. Rotating and lightning fast speeds of 24, 8 and 30 seconds along the three axes of rotation, the engineering refinement of this configuration is only superseded by its visual impact: seeing purely mechanical assemblies of such refinement in such high-speed, yet accurate motion is

the holy grail of ultra-fine watch connoisseur experiences.

Decimal Minute Repeater

Minute repeaters are the most prized complications by collectors and they are among the most difficult complications for watchmakers to conceive. Nevertheless, Jacob & Co. sought to push the boundaries of what was considered technically feasible when bringing the Twin Turbo Furious to life. Most minute repeaters conform to the hours, quarter hours and minutes standard, but the Twin Turbo Furious chimes on demand ten-minute intervals after the hours and before the minutes, a decimal repeater that is very rare in high watchmaking. In fact, you can count the number of manufacturers presenting decimal minute repeaters on one hand and have a few fingers left.

MONOPUSHER CHRONOGRAPH WITH PIT BOARD FEATURE

Bringing the hypercar-inspired Twin Turbo even closer to the world of the fastest automobiles is its Monopusher Chronograph. Its horizontal clutch system is operated by a column wheel linked to the chronograph's pusher that, in turn, is integrated into the crown lever system on the right side of the case. Linked to the chronograph is the Pit Board feature, a colored and rotating disc that allows for an easy and novel way of calculating lap time differences at a glance.


Pit Board Feature

Bringing the hypercar-inspired Twin Turbo even closer to the world of the fastest automobiles is its built-in mechanical Pit Board, an easy way to compare two elapsed times. Inspired by the old-time pit boards in auto racing, you use the crank (pulled out to the first position and unfolded) to move the colored, rotating disk and central digital display to set the reference time. Then, when you operate the monopusher chronograph normally, you can easily see the difference between the current time and the reference time you set. Seconds times greater than the reference time are in the red (+) portion of the pit board, while seconds times lower than the reference time are in the yellow and green (-) portion. Unlike today's pit boards, which are electronic, this is all done mechanically.

Case & Crystal

The Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti Baguette White Diamonds & Blue Sapphires is presented in an entirely unique case of outstanding visual and technical complexity, and wearing comfort that has to be personally experienced to be believed. The case measures 57mm by 52mm and is 17mm thick, including specially curved sapphire crystals on the front and the back that provide a completely unobstructed view of the exceptionally finished 832-component JCFM05 caliber. The 18K white gold and carbon fiber case alone is comprised of 88 parts.

The 18K white gold case and bezel is invisibly-set with 153 baguette-cut Diamonds (≈7.99cts) and 191 baguette-cut Blue Sapphires (≈ 9.3cts).

Dial & Hands

For optimum legibility of the chronograph's indications, the Twin Turbo Furious introduced a smoked dark grey sapphire crystal dial, that partially reveals the components underneath it while allowing for enhanced legibility. The periphery of the dial is crafted from a rare and exotic material called Neoralithe, with luminescent indices in Super-LumiNova. The hours and minutes are indicated by specially skeletonized and bi-colored main hands, driven by exquisitely finished gears, connecting them to the twin triple-axis tourbillons.
