Jacob & Co. unveils a new timepiece in honor of Jean Bugatti
Today, Jacob & Co. unveils a new timepiece that commemorates and celebrates the legend of Jean Bugatti. Exuding excellence from the inside out, this nice watches shop embodies the very essence of Bugatti.
Rooted in the rich history of the Bugatti automotive brand, the Jean Bugatti watch follows the long partnership between Jacob & Co. and Bugatti and tells the story of the eldest son. At 27, Bugatti was responsible for developing road-legal cars and racing cars that made their mark on the era, such as the Type 50 series, the longest of all Type 41 Royales, and the legendary Type 57SC Atlantic - the most expensive collector's car in the world . Thus, Jean Bugatti is Jacob & Co.'s tribute to Bugatti as a creator committed to innovation, unparalleled automotive interpretation and technological breakthroughs.
Jean Bugatti adopts a classic retro design suitable for the modern era, equipped with a rare high-end movement: the JCFM09 movement. Made of a total of 470 precious components, a staggering number of components reflect the double structure of the movement. Complications include a one-to-one minute flying tourbillon, a minute high-frequency biretrograde chronograph and digital jumping 30-minute counter.Jacob and Co. astronomia price
Crafted with extreme precision by Jean Bugatti, the elegant dial is adorned with numerous rose gold appliqués inspired by the grilles of Bugatti roadsters from the 1930s. This special edition watch is available in rose gold with a cream dial or in white gold with a blue dial.
Jacob & Co. crafted the watch to mimic iconic Bugatti elements such as the dashboard of a collector's Bugatti car and the grille and headlights of a 1930s Molsheim coupe.
