Twin Turbo

Story

The Twin Turbo combines the exhilarating energy experienced in the world's fastest automobiles with the unparalleled refinement and mechanical complexity only present in the universe of ultra-high-end watchmaking. The Twin Turbo features two triple-axis tourbillons, the most complicated, technically most challenging and visually most encapsulating among all tourbillons. With this marvelous engineering solution, the Twin Turbo depends on two regulating organs, each encased in their delicate cages, spinning through space in a succession of lightning fast, yet calculated movements.

Part of the Twin Turbo's 581-component JCFM03 Exclusive Jacob & Co caliber is a decimal minute repeater - the most exotic and rarest of all chiming complications. Push the slide set into the left-hand side of the Twin Turbo's 18K Rose Gold case to hear the crystal-clear sound of its cathedral gongs.

The Twin Turbo is another incredibly novel Jacob & Co creation, one that is like no other to have ever existed in fine watchmaking before. Be the one to feel the energy of its two beating hearts and listen to its movingly beautiful chime - experience haute horlogerie like never before.

Twin Turbo Triple Axis Tourbillon

Twin Triple-Axis Tourbillon

The Twin Triple-Axis Tourbillon is the most complicated, technically most challenging and visually most encapsulating among all tourbillons. Whereas the tourbillon was originally invented to be a single-axis, rotating platform to carry the regulating organ of a mechanical pocket watch for improved timekeeping performance, the Twin Turbo brings this 220-year-old invention into the future of fine watchmaking.

Through cutting-edge engineering design and state-of-the-art manufacturing and hand-assembly techniques, the Twin Turbo's double triple-axis tourbillons have become the very ultimate solution in tourbillon-enhanced chronometric performance. Rotating and lightning fast speeds of 24, 8 and 30 seconds along the three axes of rotation, the engineering refinement of this configuration is only superseded by its visual impact: seeing purely mechanical assemblies of such refinement in such high-speed, yet accurate motion is the holy grail of ultra-fine watch connoisseur experiences.

Decimal Minute Repeater

Minute repeaters are the most prized complications by collectors and they are among the most difficult complications for watchmakers to conceive. Nevertheless, Jacob & Co. sought to push the boundaries of what was considered technically feasible when bringing the Twin Turbo Furious to life. Most minute repeaters conform to the hours, quarter hours and minutes standard, but the Twin Turbo Furious chimes on demand ten-minute intervals after the hours and before the minutes, a decimal repeater that is very rare in high watchmaking. In fact, you can count the number of manufacturers presenting decimal minute repeaters on one hand and have a few fingers left.

Twin Turbo Case & Crystal

Case & Crystal

The Twin Turbo is presented in an entirely unique case of outstanding visual and technical complexity - and wearing comfort that is to be personally experienced to be believed. All cases feature a layered carbon fiber outer shell and an inner, high-polished case, crafted from Black DLC Grade 5 Titanium, or 18K Rose Gold. The case measures 57.30 by 51.00 millimeters and is 16.90 millimeters thick including specially curved sapphire crystals on front and back.

Twin Turbo's Dial & Hands

Dial & Hands

The dial of the Twin Turbo is crafted from a large, smoked dark grey pane of sapphire, surrounded by an exotic and rare red Neoralithe inner ring. Hours and minutes are indicated by specially skeletonized and bi-colored main hands, driven by fully exposed and exquisitely finished gears, connecting them to the twin triple-axis tourbillons.
