Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron BU800.40.BR.UA.ABRUA Tourbillon Baguette Ruby 55mm x 44mm 18K Rose Gold Unique Piece
It started with an idea conceived by Jacob & Co. together with Bugatti – how to reproduce the visceral sensation of the iconic Bugatti 16-cylinder engine in a timepiece.
After almost a year of development working together, they created the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon. Everything in this timepiece is designed to honor the Chiron hyper sports car.
The sleek tonneau-shaped case is inspired by the flowing lines of the Chiron. The movement powers the timing functions, a 60-second flying tourbillon and, most importantly, a fully operational recreation of the Bugatti iconic W16 engine.
The entire movement is on display beneath a massive piece of sapphire crystal. The Bugatti Chiron Baguette Ruby is a unique piece in 18K rose gold.
It features 339 specifically cut baguette rubies, weighing approximately 17.8ct. on the case, 60 on the three crowns and pushers (2.35ct), 18 more on the buckle of the rubber strap (2.17ct), and one last ruby sitting on top of the flying tourbillon with a 30° incline.
The total number of red gems on the Bugatti Chiron Baguette Ruby is 418, for a total weight of approximately 22.51ct.
