Meticulously crafted by jeweler and watchmaker Jacob & Co, the Bugatti Chiron Blue Sapphire Crystal watch costs $1.5-million and features a tiny replica of a Bugatti W16 engine inside, complete with 16 moving pistons. The watch took over a year to build and features a 51-jewel movement and 578 handmade and decorated pieces in total, almost all of which are visible through the translucent case. I can’t help but feel like it belongs in a museum.
What a thing of beauty. You really have to watch the video to fully appreciate just how finely crafted this thing is. Of course, for $1.5-million, it better be. Me? I wear a cheap $49 watch, but it does function as a TV remote as well. Which, I’ve since found out, is a great way to get kicked out of bars during football games.
How awesome would it feel to wear this watch? I bet it would feel amazing. Partially because the watch is so cool, but mostly because you’re so rich you can afford a $1.5 million watch to go with your $3 million sports car. That’s a life I can hardly imagine but daydream about twice a month when I’m spending my whole paycheck on lottery tickets.
