It was big news in the automotive world when Andy Wallace reached a whopping 304.77 mph at the wheel of a modified Bugatti Chiron on Volkwagen’s Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany last August. Now, in celebration of Bugatti breaking the coveted 300 mph barrier, Jacob & Co. has unveiled an extremely complex and intricately-detailed timepiece to complement the unmatched Chiron Super Sport 300+.
Named the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+, this exclusive timepiece is based on Jacob & Co.’s existing Twin Turbo Furious model and features accents that tastefully coordinate with the record-breaking hypercar. The dial is housed inside a 57x52mm case made of forged carbon, while bright red-orange stripes echo the appearance of the Chiron’s racing stripes. The dial features the Bugatti “macaron” badge and the “pit board” in the middle of the dial indicates reference time differential.
The functions and technical performances of the timepiece are beyond comparison, featuring not one, but two black titanium triple-axis tourbillon escapements as well as a decimal minute repeater. A regulator system guarantees a perfect balance between the dual tourbillon work in a constant symmetrical motion. The in-house manual winding JCFM05 movement consists of 832 components and has a power reserve of 50 hours, as indicated at the six o’clock position on the dial.
While thirty Chiron Super Sport 300+ vehicles are set to be produced, the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ timepiece is even more exclusive, being limited to just three units.
