Jacob & Co. have just launched a new Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon watch that features a 16-cylinder “engine” that actually turns, the 16 pistons move up and down just like an engine.

The “engine” has two turbochargers that rest on either side of the engine block spin when the “engine” is running.

Jacob & Co. is not the first company to design a watch with a sports car theme, but it is the first to reproduce the engine block of a racing car in 3-D animation, with 16 moving pistons and a working crankshaft. The watch was co-designed by Jacob & Co and Bugatti.
