Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon

In 2019, Bugatti and Jacob & Co. signed a multi-year partnership to create unique, never-before-seen timepieces. The Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is true to the spirit of both companies, while taking watchmaking to unreached heights.

The crankshaft turns and 16 pistons pump up and down.

It started with the idea to reproduce the visceral sensation of the Bugatti 16-cylinder engine in a timepiece.

The Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon is designed to honor the Chiron in a timepiece. The case is inspired by the flowing lines of the Chiron and the "engine block," intends to duplicate the Bugatti engine under a massive sapphire crystal hood.
