Jacob & Co. unveils Bugatti Chiron 16-Cylinder Tourbillon wristwatch.

The wristwatch, which comes with moving crankshaft and pistons, is like a miniature Bugatti Chiron for your wrist.

At $280,000 or about ₦103 million, the watch is worth more than two 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUVs (The $280,000 does not include destination cost to Nigeria).

Last year, Bugatti and Jacob & Co. signed an agreement to create timepieces that honor the power and performance of both brands.

To capture the spirit and energy of the high-powered ₦1.2 billion Bugatti Chiron hypercar, Jacob & Co. spent a year in the development stages before arriving at the car engine-inspired Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon.

There are two turbochargers in the watch that also spin while the engine is running for added impact.

The Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon wristwatch is equipped with a pusher on the right side of the case. When activated, it rotates the crankshaft and propels the pistons of the movement up and down – just like in a car engine.
