In April this year, the collaboration between Jacob & Co. and Bugatti spawned the incredible Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon timepiece. The standout design feature of the horological masterpiece is a tiny moving replica of the signature 8.0-liter W16 engine that powers the mighty Bugatti Chiron. Engaging the right pusher brings the engine to life, creating a 20-second 3D animation. Back then, the watchmaker has only released a single all-black edition limited to just 126 pieces. Jacob & Co. has now followed it up by revealing four new iterations of the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. The first version comes with an 18-karat Rose Gold case, a special anti-reflective sapphire crystal, an 18-karat Rose Gold open caseback, and black DLC titanium crowns and pushers embossed with the Bugatti logo. This edition includes a rubber strap with a black DLC titanium and 18-karat Rose Gold buckle clasp and is limited to only 72 pieces.
Second, the line-up also has a similar 18k Rose Gold finish and other features; however, it is adorned with sparkling white diamonds. This version is limited to 52 examples. Next up is the 18-karat White Gold version set with 391 black and white diamonds (approximately 20 carats). The rubber strap with an 18-karat White Gold buckle clasp is embellished with 18 white diamonds (approximately 1.76 carats). The final version carries a theme of transparency and is made of a solid block of sapphire crystal with a sapphire crystal caseback. It also uses sapphire crystals for the crowns as well as the pushers. This version is paired with a rubber strap with a titanium buckle clasp. Technically, all the four new versions are identical to the one launched earlier this year. The model is powered by the Jacob & Co. manual winding JCAM37 movement, which is held within the case by miniature Chiron-style shock absorbers. It offers a power reserve of 60 hours. There’s no word on pricing any of the four new versions, but we expect it to be a lot more than the $280,000 price tag black DLC Titanium version from April.
