Jacob and Co. and Bugatti release limited edition Bugatti Tourbillon

If you're going to buy the car, you should have the watch, too.

Following last week’s dramatic reveal of the new limited edition Bugatti Tourbillon hypercar, Swiss watchmaker Jacob & Co. and Bugatti collaborated to create a wristwatch that represents the same pursuit of perfection embodied in the automobile. The Bugatti Tourbillon watch is a limited edition of just 150.

Why the Bugatti Tourbillon watch matters

The Bugatti Tourbillon timepiece is not the first collaboration between the two companies. Jacob & Co. and Bugatti also collaborated to create the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon, which celebrated Bugatti’s automotive creation with a watch created with the same high standards of design and engineering.

Outstanding features of the Bugatti Tourbillon watch

Bugatti followed the principles of its founder, Ettore Bugatti, in creating the Tourbillon hypercar and collaborating with Geneva-based Jacob & Co. on the Bugatti Tourbillon timepiece. Bugatti insisted on perfection in design, engineering, and function, stating that nothing was too beautiful or too expensive in the perfection’s pursuit.

The 52 x 44 mm Bugatti Tourbillon watch case shares design elements from the car’s front grille, side radiator inlets, and sapphire side windows.

The watch has an automaton representing the Tourbillon car’s V16 engine, sculpted from a single block of transparent sapphire. The engine includes a 30-second flying tourbillon and a twin power reserve. A display that mimics the car’s RPM counter shows the time in hours and minutes.

Just as Bugatti was inspired by watchmaking when creating the precision automotive instrument, Jacob & Co. included details in the Bugatti Tourbillon timepiece, emphasizing its exclusivity and complexity.

The Bugatti Tourbillon is available in a limited edition of 150 for $340,000.

FIA releases details on next-gen 2026 F1 racecars – DRS is gone
Next-gen F1 racecars will be smaller, lighter, and run on biofuel
Direct front view of a 2026 F1 racecar according to new FIA regulations.

We are still in the first half of the 2024 Formula 1 racing schedule, but the FIA motorsports governing organization is already focused on rules and regulations for the 2026 season. That's when all F1 teams will be required to race cars significantly different from the current generation. The next-generation F1 racecars will be smaller and lighter than today. The new cars will have hybrid powertrains that run on biofuel, plus the power split between the ICE motor and electricity generation will change.
Why 2026 F1 race car specs matter

Formula 1 committed to be carbon neutral by 2030, including the fossil fuel usage of the masses of spectators who travel to attend F1 races worldwide. The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) creates and enforces complex rules and regulations for F1 sporting, technical, and financial operations.

G-Shock’s limited edition Diffuse Nebula watch will have you seeing stars
G-Shock releases limited edition watch that will have you feeling like an astronaut
g shock diffuse nebula mtgb3000dn1a watch

There are very few watches that make us feel like we're traversing the Milky Way on our own little rocketship, eyes mesmerized at all the colors and galaxies, minus the Omega x Swatch Bioceramic MoonSwatch Collection that was quite obviously inspired by several planets. G-Shock is one brand that doesn't shy away from gradient colors or space themes, as the newest watch follows earlier models like the MTG-B3000PRB-1A Northern Light and the MTG-B3000FR Solar Flares. The new G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A will quite literally have you feeling like you're millions of miles away, floating through space, or at least taking in the Northern Lights from a cold mountain somewhere in Norway.
G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A

The new, limited edition G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A is not only made for those who appreciate astronomy and the universe at large but even the occasional stargazer who is mesmerized by the beauty of outer space. This G-Shock watch captures celestial beauty with its wide spectrum of color, from shimmering royal purple to deep blue, reminiscent of interstellar gas clouds.
G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A: Nebula aesthetics
Continuing on with the aesthetics of this new G-Shock, the stainless-steel bezel is finished with a gradation ion plating (IP) process which is what creates the gradient colors you see. The IP crown and screws are rose gold which looks slightly out of place but does add a certain warmth to the watch that some might feel is missing.
