Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti

What are the key introductions this year?

Jacob Arabo: Our key introductions are the Fleurs de Jardin, the Astronomia Casino, the Supernova, and the Leo Messi Partnership, and we are very excited about launching the long-term partnership with Bugatti.

What is your personal favourite in the 2019 line-up?

I love the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti and Epic X Chrono Carbon Bugatti.

What are the most significant characteristics a sophisticated timepiece should have today?

First, a sophisticated watch should have a design that stands out, one that doesn’t look like anything else. There are too many ‘copy cat’ watches on the market today. Then, it should use a high-quality mechanical movement with hand-finishing. It should also have a certain degree of exclusivity, either limited production or a limited edition. At the same time, a sophisticated watch should only use the highest-quality materials, and should have a focus on craftsmanship, an attention to detail that is missing from mass market watches. Jacob & Co. timepieces meet all these requirements and take them many steps further.
