Jacob & Co. - An almost classic Bugatti

Jacob & Co. An almost classic Bugatti

Focus on the Jean Bugatti

Compared with the Twin Furious model made for Bugatti in 2020, the Jean Bugatti version of 2022 looks almost demure, while nonetheless endowed with plenty of power beneath the hood. The son of Ettore Bugatti, Jean was not only a driver, but also a designer and engineer. This watch in his honor is therefore styled in a retro, racing spirit, combining the performance of a chronograph with the technical sophistication of a double tourbillon. The emphasis is on the central chronograph display, where the two blue retrograde hands point to the seconds in units and tens. The 30-minute jumping chronograph seconds indication appears between the two tourbillons. The all-new 470-component caliber visible through the sapphire caseback comprises a regulating organ dedicated to the chronograph functions. A spectacular way for Jacob & Co. to celebrate 20 years of taking its very own watchmaking route.
