The Jacob & Co. Epic X collection is characterized by its X-shaped lugs and dial appliques running through the watch, giving the timepiece an impeccable design. It’s big at 47mm, but not as big as it sounds, thanks to a sloping bezel and smaller dial aperture for an ergonomic fit on the wrist.
As with previous Epic X versions, high-tech materials play a role in this new model. The titanium case is completely coated with blue PVD and is satin-finished in different directions according to the shape of each part of the complex case. For example, the bezel has a circular finish, while the pusher guards are horizontally polished. Not only is this dark blue aesthetic a matter of design, but it also brings extra toughness to the watch face, an important advantage for a sports cheap watches swiss.
In addition to the blue case, the side inlays of the crown, pushers and lugs are all made of white ceramic, and the case is also dotted with white elements. These elements are perfectly matched with the hour and minute hands and the skeletonized white chronograph hands.
The dial is translucent blue and the chronograph counters feature a dual-hand format with a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small seconds indicator at 9 o’clock. The central red seconds hand indicates the chronograph seconds. A one-minute flying tourbillon completes the six o’clock picture. The tourbillon cage is particularly striking as it is openworked and crescent-shaped, flush with the dial, lending a sense of lightness to the design.
This latest Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Tourbillon is powered by the exclusive new movement Caliber JCAA09, which features hours, minutes, column wheel chronograph (two pushers), flying tourbillon and countdown timer. The level of finishing of the movement is comparable to that of any haute horlogerie, including polished and horizontal graining as well as circular graining and angles. The anthracite-coloured oscillating weight is engraved with “Jacob & Co. Genève” red lacquer and is covered with colored mineral glass in the same tone as the dial. A second sapphire crystal covers the case back for ultimate protection.
