The latest Jacob watch is a $580,000, 832-part tribute to the Fast Saga

Meet the Jacob & Co Fast & Furious Twin Turbo

Jacob & Co. is a watch brand founded by Jacob Arabo - an Uzbek-American jeweller - in 1986. Even if you're not into watches but love cars, you may be familiar with the 'Bugatti Chiron' wristwatch, an insane tourbillon timepiece, which incorporates a working replica of the W16 engine that powers Bugatti hypercars.

The Twin-Turbo is part of the same family of timepieces - essentially the same design and a similar movement as the Chiron but without the W16 in it - and Jacob has designed a new spin-off model as a tribute to F9, the long-awaited ninth installment in the Fast & Furious saga, scheduled for theatrical release in the UK and the US on June 24-25.

It's called the 'Fast & Furious Twin Turbo', powered by an 88-part double-tourbillon movement (the twin triple-axis tourbillons rotate at speeds of 24, 48, and 180 seconds along the three axes of rotation) housed in a forged carbon 57x52mm case with sapphire crystal.

The dial is a saga of Fast & Furious icons including the starting girl with checkered flag with two cars behind her - an all-American muscle car and a 'supercharged import'. Jacob says the images "capture the feeling of living life one quarter-mile at a time".

This 832-component engineering marvel is actually more expensive than most cars in the Fast Saga, coming in with an eye-watering $580,000 price tag.

  • I just threw up a bit

  • The only thing I like about this watch are the rotating spheres. That's damn cool. Otherwise meh. The price is a bit high as in whomever came up with that price must have been very high.

  • I wonder if Jacob ever looks up from his handiwork with that exultant Justinian-entering-Hagia Sofia expression and goes O RICHARD MILLE I HAVE SURPASSED THEE

    He has. He really, abominably, has.

  • what is this car supposed to be?

  • It is like many Jacob&Co. watches: incredibly intricate, and insufferably impractical. And impossibly expensive. At that price point, I'd rather buy a house, a Ferrari and a nice, subtle, understated Omega Seamaster that actually works when I want to know what time it is.
