In her latest YouTube video, Supercar Blondie offers us an exclusive peek inside the flagship NY Jacob & Co. store and even takes us to a secret room reserved only for the VIP buyers. Although we’ll see what jewelry pieces and watches are on sale, the main attraction is the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillion watch.
Supercar Blondie, if you haven’t heard of her, is an Australian social media celebrity, presenter, and vlogger based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. As you might have guessed from her name, she frequently uploads on social media platforms and talks primarily about supercars (or pretty much any deluxe vehicle).
Jacob & Co., a high-end watch manufacturer dedicated to creating beautiful, dynamic, and one-of-a-kind pieces of watchmaking and jewellery art, invited her this time. We’ll take a look at what’s in the shop of a company known for creating bizarre and seemingly impossible pieces.
We can see some lovely pieces on display as soon as she walks in, but I’d like to explain more about the exclusive ones. She goes to the VIP room after passing through security to look at the truly expensive pieces.s
Jacob and Company first announced a collaboration with Bugatti in 2019. With a history of creating intricate watches with installations such as a roulette wheel, spiders, and more, it’s understandable that they’d want to incorporate something car-related.
They replicated the W16 engine with all 16 pistons, two turbochargers, and exhaust for the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillion timepiece. There are even miniature coil-overs that replicate its suspension. The entire watch is shaped like a supercar, with the iconic Bugatti C-line and the instantly recognisable Bugatti logo at the front. It not only perfectly replicates the engine, but you can also see it in action as the pistons begin to move up and down when you press a button.
The watch starts at $300,000 for the entry-level titanium version, and the price increases depending on the case you choose. Aside from the one-of-a-kind blue crystal sapphire version, the most expensive piece is the $1.3 million sapphire crystal one.
You can even choose a bespoke model in the same colour as your vehicle, as many Bugatti owners do. Furthermore, you can customise the watch with whatever diamonds or precious stones you want. Just make sure your bank account is ready. The Bugatti Chiron Tourbillion is made up of 571 parts and 51 jewels.
You can also see other, more expensive jewellery pieces, such as a $13 million 120-carat diamond necklace or $4 million 20-carat yellow diamond cufflinks. I’ll let you find out what else Supercar Blondie shows us in this fantastic video.
