Hands-on astronomy tourbillon at Jacobs

Jacob & Co. Astronomia is equipped with an impressive upward and outward movement. It is a two-axis tourbillon. This is a complicated watch with excellent acting skills. Below is the watch with original photos and prices.

Jacob & Co. is best known for its watches decorated with jewels and jewels, which are loved by musicians and athletes. On the contrary, astronomy is a completely different kind of watch. This is an orbital two-axis tourbillon that combines an orbital time display and is powered by a three-dimensional movement that rises from the bottom plate.

With an impressive visual effect on the wrist, the astronomical movement is constructed vertically instead of horizontally like traditional sports. The movement was developed by Studio 7h38. This movement has a unique and imaginative structure. This movement is a professional movement developer who is also responsible for completing the entire swiss men watch. Under the leadership of watchmaker Luca Soprana (Luca Soprana), the company’s other works include Vianney Halter (Vianney Halter) deep space tourbillon.

The movement is located in the center of the watch, surrounded by Venus flowers, which is a quartz form with sparkling mineral inclusions that mimic the night sky. At the far right end of the movement is the barrel, which contains the mainspring to provide power for the mainspring. The gear train is at the top, and the entire display device branches from the center.

Four functions are displayed in three dimensions, each function is relative to a fixed position, but the whole mechanism rotates for 20 minutes. It relies on planetary gears to make all objects move synchronously around the case.

The simplest element is the globe, which is made of aluminum and painted with blue paint. One revolution per second is equivalent to the second hand. Opposite the earth is a diamond weighing 1 carat. The diamond is completely spherical and has 288 facets. This is a patent of Jacob & Co.

The tourbillon is a two-axis tourbillon. If you count the 20-minute rotation of the entire mechanism, it is a three-axis tourbillon. The tourbillon cage rotates once per minute on the same axis as the balance wheel, and rotates for five minutes on an axis perpendicular to the balance wheel.

The same, or maybe more, interesting is the time display mechanism. The time-stamped minute dial has a hollow chapter ring for hour markers, even if it rotates around the case for 20 minutes, it always faces upwards. This means that the “XII” mark is always located at 12 o’clock, no matter where the sub-dial is in the case.

The movement is full of dynamic and dynamic inside, as there are sapphire crystals and rose gold. The panoramic windows on each side (including the panoramic windows between the lugs) reveal the entire movement. On top of it is a huge domed sapphire crystal.

All this means that astronomy is huge-Jacob & Co. Watches are hardly anything else. The diameter is 50 mm and the height is about 25 mm. There is almost no need to have such a large watch, but of course this watch needs to be large enough to produce a complete visual impact.

The novel movement structure means that there is no crown on the side, but two crowns are set on the back of the watch, one for setting the time and the other for winding. Although the barrel is relatively small, it can still manage 60 hours of considerable power in high winds.
