"Mind-blowing speed. Who would have thought that a car could go this fast?” Andy Wallace, Le Mans winner and the official test driver of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+The unthinkable happened on August 2nd of 2019, when the magical 300 mph barrier was shattered by the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. Driven by Andy Wallace, Le Mans winner and official Bugatti driver, the Chiron zoomed past 300 mph before Wallace had to hit the brakes at 304.77 mph as he was running out of road. The new speed record is a monumental achievement that once more sets Bugatti apart from the rest of the automotive industry.
Created to celebrate the world’s fastest series production hypercar, the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ echoes the materials and colors of the Chiron Super Sport 300+, while introducing a brand-new aesthetic. The black titanium twin triple-axis tourbillon movement includes a decimal minute repeater and a mono-pusherchronograph with reference time. Housed in a forged carbon case, to match the exposed carbon fiber bodywork
of the record-breaking hypercar, this timepiece is limited to three pieces for the world.
Both Bugatti and Jacob & Co. put a premium on performance, while also emphasizing absolute exclusivity, luxury, unrivalled beauty and exceptional craftsmanship. This new Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ is no different – the grand complication offers a combination of complications no brand has ever done before, while at the same time it is comfortable and sporty, perfect for everyday wear. Just like you can drive your Bugatti to the grocery
store, you can wear the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ everywhere you go.
In the world of watchmaking, the presence of a tourbillon in a watch’s movement places the piece among the elite. Jacob & Co.’s Twin Turbo Furious sets itself apart from this rarified group, incorporating two accelerated triple axis tourbillons into its striking design. The tourbillons work together to compensate for the effects of gravity on the precision of the movement.
Even the case of the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ is super complicated – made of forged carbon, with a titanium core to ensure water resistance - the case alone is comprised of 88 parts. The grand complication movement is made up of 832 individual parts, incredible to consider that many parts coming together, and amazing to see in action.
A Decimal Minute Repeater Ready for Action 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 Bugatti 300+ 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.
Planetary Gear Power Reserve
The power reserve is labeled “300+” for this edition of the Twin Turbo Furious, and this is displayed on the dial side at six o’clock. Thanks to an ingenious planetary system comprising a differential gear mechanism, the hand points to a full power reserve on the left, then moves to the right as the 50 hours of reserve winds down. The watch is wound up through the crank placed on the crown at three o’clock.
A Monopusher Chronograph Function with Reference Time
With the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+, Jacob & Co. goes even further by adding a very specific monopusher chronograph function. Embodying the brand’s determination to always seek new solutions or to create never-before-seen functions, the chronograph is equipped with a “reference time” indicator. Inspired by pit boards in motor racing, the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ reference time display is located in the center of the dial,
indicating the difference in seconds in comparison to a reference time. The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti 300+ is a stunning new addition to the Bugatti collection. And at three watches for the world, it will move just as fast as the car it is inspired by.
