In partnership with Jacob & Co., Bugatti has put out a new high-end watch inspired by the Bugatti Chiron. In it, there’s a real miniaturized W-16 engine that moves and is even suspended on its own tiny shocks. Jacob & Co. has now produced three watch models for Bugatti, and the price of the new masterpiece is $280,000. Besides the cute engine, the watch comes with many other features.
The Mini W-16 Engine of the Bugatti Watch Moves and Looks Amazing
The new Bugatti watch perfectly epitomizes what a high-end watch should look like. Its miniaturized W-16 engine is an amazing piece of engineering that has many moving parts and looks amazing to behold. The wrist clock is officially dubbed the Bugatti Chiron 16 Cylinder Tourbillon. Because the actual Chiron has a powerful 1500-hp, 8.0-liter, and 16-cylinder engine, the masters at Jacob & Co’s had to design sixteen tiny pistons that move the solid steel crankshaft. The company says that this very crankshaft is among the smallest and most complicated watch parts to have ever been manufactured.
Jacob & Co. Designers Created a Watch That Feels Like it Belongs With the Vehicle
The designers at Jacob & Co. are among those who appreciate this kind of challenge, and the partnership with Bugatti has been welcomed with open arms. The watchmaking company has already produced two models that were inspired by models of Bugatti. There were 18 Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti watches made, as well as 110 Epic X Chrono Carbon Bugatti watches. It’s still unknown how many Chiron watches will be made but it’s safe to say that any and every person who purchases one won’t be disappointed.
The tiny engine in the new Bugatti watch can start spinning with the push of a button, and it has sapphire crystals on the sides and on the top. The sapphire crystal window, which shows the 16-cylinder tourbillon, was modeled after the Bugatti horseshoe grill. The crystals are housed in a titanium case that has the flowing lines of the Bugatti Chiron. Tiny Bugatti logo can also be seen on several parts of the watch.
While 2020 might have been harsh for some, it’s been a blessed year for Travis Scott. The Houston artist had collaborations with fast-food chain McDonald’s, the sportswear giant Nike, and the massive multiplayer video game Fortnite. He also released chart-topping singles and co-produced the soundtrack for the film Tenet by Christopher Nolan, starred Matthew M. William’s debut collection for Givenchy, alongside partner Kylie Jenner. It seems like things are going well for Travis.
Jacques Webster, who’s known professionally as Travis Scott celebrated his bumper year with a double flex worthy of the gods: a pair of archival Supreme x Nike sneakers and a highly customized Lamborghini Urus.
Travis Scott’s New Sneakers
They are Supreme x Nike SB Blazers from 2006, and they feature a quilted texture, a snakeskin effect Nike ‘swoosh,’ and a golden swing tag beautifying the heel. Anything that Supreme attracts hype and the high price tag, and these 14-year old sneakers are surely no exception: some sizes cost over $2,000.
Travis Scott’s Urus
It’s all about collaborations with Travis Scott, and the Urus model by Lamborghini is no different. First modified by Mansory in Germany, he also took his $400,000 Italian SUV to West Coast Customs, a famous Californian garage. They have spruced up the car in Scott’s favorite color, mocha brown. It’s a color scheme in which he painted all his vehicles, including his Mercedes Maybach G650, Range Rover, and Lamborghini Aventador. Mansory is known for its love of carbon fiber and outlandish modifications. There, he chose the ‘Venatus Evo’ customization package, which cost an additional $556,800 on top of the already pricey Urus. It seems, though, that this is not enough for the famous rapper.
The black carbon fiber and white rims that contrast with the brown bring to mind Scott’s collaborative Nike Air Jordan 1s, which also cost $2,000.
Scott is currently working on his upcoming fourth studio album Utopia, which is due for 2021. He recently released two singles from the album, Franchise, featuring Young Thug and M.I.A., and Highest in the Room.
