The center line and split window is an attempt to draw similarities to Bugatti's of old in particular the Bugatti Atlantic. I think something is lost in translation but that was the intent I guess.Whats with the split windshield? Weird.
Wait, so the clock for the car is a wristwatch? Isnt that a little too small and impractical? Especially for a sedan?The center line and split window is an attempt to draw similarities to Bugatti's of old in particular the Bugatti Atlantic.

I like the watch I idea. Get in the car for a long drive and put in the dash get out and take with you as a watch. Unfortunately it's less attractive as a wrist watch maybe if it was a pocket watch.

Seems like a silly idea. Im sure the car is in the $1,000,000 range, so besides the fact that the tourbillon is probably adding 100k alone, the whole concept of a mechanical watch in a car is dumb, let alone one that can be removed to leave a gaping hole in the middle of the dashboard.
+1, hard to criticize that detail as impractical when the car is powered by an 8 liter 16 cylinder engine. Yeah, the watch makes it impractical.....No offense, but anyone questioning the logic of a removable tourbillon in a 1.5 million dollar car is sort of missing the point here. I mean, there's absolutely nothing about this venture that makes the least bit of sense, and when taken in that light, the notion of a $100K+ time piece that's awkward as both a dash clock and a wristwatch suddenly seems like a brilliant idea.
I wonder, how much do you think my MDX is worth as a trade-in... :think:
I would say its about as impractical as if the 16 cylinder engine was hand cranked. As little sense as the car itself makes, the watch makes zero sense. The car is not an everyday driver. So, you either leave the clock inside and wind and set it every time you drive the car, or you wear it on your wrist to keep it running, and inexplicably remove it from your wrist and insert it into your dash when you get in for a drive.+1, hard to criticize that detail as impractical when the car is powered by an 8 liter 16 cylinder engine.

I do like the idea of the leather watch case. Has it been done before?
There definitely doesnt appear to be a winder as it would have to fit over the crown to wind it. The signature on the crown is visible, so I dont think thats the case.PS - Looking at the dash shot, it looks like there could be a watch winding mechanism in place. Im just looking at the 'cradle' to me it looks as if its designed to rotate - it would definitely make sense to me after all some people may never wear this as a watch, bugatti wouldnt let a car out without that sort of detail
But it is the dash clock that caught my eye. Pretty clever.
