The watch, designed according to the structure of the car, has mechanical accuracy. The watch movement reflects the feeling, energy and power of a high-performance car engine.
The case is inspired by the flowing lines of the Chiron, and the movement or "engine block", intended to duplicate the Bugatti engine, is placed under a massive sapphire crystal on display for all.
The Tourbillon, featured a 30º inclined tourbillon, has ever used an inclined tourbillon. The "flying" part of the tourbillon means that the regulating organ is only supported on one side, so the tourbillon is even more mesmerizing. The 30º inclination makes it easier to admire this incredible complication.
Here's where it gets interesting: push the right-hand crown of the timepiece and the engine comes to life - the crankshaft turns and the 16 pistons pump up and down, just like a true internal combustion engine. Two "turbochargers" on the side of the engine block spin while the engine runs, adding to the visual impact (the movement is comprised of 578 components).
The movement is completely suspended in four places, with what looks like actual automobile shocks from the Chiron. The movement, in fact, is floating inside the case -- you can see it move up and down. Framing the engine block are two "exhausts", completing the engine theme of the design.
The top and sides of the watch are made of sapphire crystal, making every single facet of the watch visible. Most captivating, of course, is the engine block animation. Made out of one solid steel piece, the crankshaft driving is one of the smallest and most complicated watch parts ever manufactured. The pistons, challenging to fabricate in their own right, are mounted onto the crankshaft at varying angles to maximize the show.
The power reserves for the animation and timekeeping are different, yet both are wound through the winding crown, clockwise for the movement, counterclockwise for the engine animation. The power reserve indication for timekeeping even has the universal gas pump symbol on the side of the gauge at nine o'clock.
The crowns for the watch are at the bottom of the case - the left crown sets the time, the middle crown winds both the movement (60 hours of power reserve) and the animation, and a push of the right-hand crown starts the animation.
