“The Bugatti Chiron’s perfectly engineered design is so powerful that sometimes even standing cars appear to be moving,” says Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co. “And I feel the same feeling when looking at a sophisticated Jacob & Co. watch, charged with energy and power of movement.”

The American jewelry and watch company and the French luxury car manufacturer have announced a long-term partnership that will take on special importance in the 110th anniversary of Bugatti. The launch of two special watch models is timed to coincide with the round date. The first is the Bugatti Chrono Edition Limitée 110 Ans sports chronograph, based on the Epic X Chrono. Each of the 110 copies, worth 36 thousand Swiss francs, symbolizes a year of the history of the company founded by Ettore Bugatti.

The skeletonized JCAA05 caliber is housed in a lightweight, hard carbon fiber case. “This material is not used by chance,” says Stefan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles, “CFRP is widely used in the automotive industry: the bodies of our racing cars are made of carbon monococks, which are lightweight, durable and very expensive to manufacture. The series with the emblematic French flag on the dial and transparent caseback was made exclusively for Bugatti: Jacob Arabo claims that in no other Jacob & Co. watch collections. we will not see carbon cases.

The Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti Edition is based on last year's sophisticated Twin Turbo Furious model with two three-axis tourbillons, decimal repeater and a special chronograph movement, the principle of which is borrowed from the world of racing. The one-button chronograph shows the "reference" time and the time of divergence from the "reference", for example, when passing the next lap: the lag is marked by a blue 20-second scale, and the lead - by a green one. This system is called the Pit Board in the new watch, and the power reserve indicator is now called Fuel. The inner rim is finished in a vibrant blue, reminiscent of historic Bugatti racing cars. Jacob Arabo liked this color - soon a new Bugatti Chiron will appear in his fleet, probably just such a bright blue.And Stefan Winkelmann is no longer parting with the new carbon chronograph Bugatti Chrono.>
