The multi-year partnership between Bugatti and Jacob & Co. that began in 2019 has spawned yet another exquisite limited-edition timepiece. Behold the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti Sapphire Crystal, the first timepiece in the history of Haute Horology to feature a decimal minute repeater housed inside a fully transparent sapphire crystal case. We’ve seen several different iterations of the Twin Turbo Furious watch, but the latest version is definitely the most intriguing piece to date. According to Jacob & Co., it took 15 months to design and create the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti Sapphire Crystal as a tribute to the iconic French automobile manufacturer.
The completely see-through sapphire crystal case offers an unprecedented view of the ultra-complex inner workings of the Twin Turbo Furious timepiece. The watchmaker says the limited-edition piece is heavily inspired by the mechanical complexity associated with Bugatti hypercars. The Bugatti logo is placed right at the center of the watch, while the blue-colored chapter ring honors Bugatti’s history and French heritage. Housed inside the case is the manual winding JCFM05 movement that offers a 50-hours power reserve. Made out of 832 components, the movement features a decimal minute repeater, two high-speed tourbillons, and a mono-pusher chronograph. The watch comes with a color-matching leather strap that gets an 18k white gold buckle. Only six examples of the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti Sapphire Crystal will be made. Jacob & Co. hasn’t revealed the price as of yet, but it could easily be north of half a million dollars.
