A smooth black Bugatti supercar parked in front of the Jacob & Co. booth at the 2019 Basel International Watch and Jewelry Show. Bugatti is one of the most powerful names (and engines) in the automotive industry and one of the most unique names. This German-owned Italian car manufacturer was previously associated with watchmaker Parmigiani, but this year we saw that they have established a partnership with Jacob & Co. This makes sense in many ways. Bugatti is about to make a loud and flashy statement; Jacob & Co. is about to make a loud and flashy statement. These brands attract the same audience. ” I agree.
Parmigiani Fleurier’s themed Bugatti timepieces are usually more technical in visual style, or at least traditional. When designing and displaying, Jacob & Co. looks more aggressive and muscular. If the technology you are looking for is the same (or more) as Parmigiani does, check Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti. I don’t know if Bugatti and Parmigiani have ended their relationship, or Jacobs is just a new authorized partner with the name Bugatti. I am not sure whether this is important to the end consumer. Today, I take a look at the limited edition Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Bugatti that can be used for everyday wear.
Given that the co-brands on the dial contain the names of Jacob and Co. and Bugatti, I think it is safe to say that Jacob & Co. is not making a design statement, but is specialized in producing a watch that recognizes existing brands. (Or aspiring) Bugatti owner. As we all know, people who buy very high-end cars like to remind this fact in places where they can’t take a car (such as indoors). A very simple use of the Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Bugatti watch is to wear a wearable totem on the wrist of a person who owns a Bugatti car. It also helps to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the iconic trademarks of racing cars and super cars.
Epic X Chrono is an interesting series of Jacob & Co., which is similar in price to the entry-level Jacob & Co. replica designer watches. For this special Bugatti version, Jacob & Co. created a black forged carbon fiber (very light) with a simple appearance and a dark DLC-coated titanium case. In the middle of the “X style” dial is red, white and blue, for the purposes of this watch, they are the colors of Bugatti. The Bugatti logo is usually only red and white, but in some cases, the red and white (with black) logo is on a blue background. Otherwise, you can simply regard this dial as the watch performance of the French flag.
Jacob & Co. hopes that the Epic X series will have a unique appeal, so that when people see it, they say, “That’s Jacob & Co.’s product.” Jacob & Co. does not yet exist, but for them, this is a mission, because the brand will definitely benefit from having more well-known sports watch products. The casing is quite large, 47 mm wide (14 mm thick). As a sports watch, the crystal is (natural) sapphire and has a water resistance of 200 meters. On the rubber strap, Epic X Chrono is as comfortable as this size watch.
This Bugatti limited edition uses many fine details, such as black ceramic buttons (and crown) in addition to the case material, which is a new feature of the Epic X series. One of the key functional details about Epic X (which is easy to miss) is the internal rotating timing bezel. In other words, it is clear that this is not a fully cooperative watch design, because it does not actually contain a lot of Bugatti DNA. In the sense that Hublot’s Ferrari replica watches are designed and produced in cooperation with Ferrari, this is not a Bugatti watch, although if Jacob & Co. and Bugatti can be designed together, I will see more visually innovative products in the future, which may be more unique , A more satisfactory fusion of the world of watches and supercars, which is a unique way of the partnership.
Inside Epic X Chrono is an automatic movement, called Jacob & Co. movement JCAA05. I believe that this movement, produced by Concepto for Jacob & Co., is a two-registered column-wheel chronograph that contains only time and a 30-minute chronograph. It is not the most interesting movement in the world, but it is beautifully designed, once again designed to meet the purpose of “daily wear”.
For watch enthusiasts, the biggest part of this story is that Jacob & Co. and Bugatti have a formal relationship. I hope this relationship will continue to develop. I don’t think the two companies have the opportunity to make some really new products together, and although there are no really Bugatti-themed watches, we started to have these satisfactory watches, which were co-branded with Bugatti, such as Epic X Timing Bugatti.
