Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino Watch Hands-On

The Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino, also known as the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Gambler, is another unique creation by Jacob & Co. conceived, designed and produced in a move towards their goal of dominating the field of absurd over-engineering Yet another, interesting, ultra-high-end watch — because such things do exist, and in fact have been for years.

Given that Harry Winston Opus watches dominated the mid-play naughty – widely and rightly considered the original source of haute horlogerie – creations that challenged the established limits of design and function – the early teens were all about Jaquet Droz Musical pieces, big brand complications with perpetual calendar, chronograph and striking mechanism. (A little basic research will make you realize how the value of these things from Audemars Piguet, IWC, Lange and others has fallen off a cliff, sometimes to 25% to 30% of the original retail price.) Why do I so? On the one hand, because I didn’t realize until recently that it was a common “serious complication” and not just a “disposable” lemon, and second, to show that there are so many people who can afford these things that are ready to hit their purchases (or even if they are not ready, they are forced,

Like it or not, the resale value of these once Holy Grail state watches is more than I can tell you about their current demand. Those who can burn six-figure sums (in dollars) when buying a watch have turned to watches that have any one or more of the following: 1) novel, 2) interesting, 3) expressive, 4) unique, 5) Simple appreciation. As with watches, the more boxes you tick, the higher the price in general. Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino goes to great lengths to tick all those boxes, and then some.

With its – no other words to describe it – absurd thickness of 27.9mm (i.e. an inch, then some!), it’s a watch that’s easy to admire up close…and the other side of the dining table. It’s as discreet as a 1940s Francis Bacon pinned to your head while sitting at dinner, like a sail. Its weight is verified by the multi-layered, multipurpose JCAM29A movement, which includes the Astronomia “vertical movement” with its rotating platform consisting of four rotating arms and a fully functional, fully mechanical roulette complication beneath it .

First, a few words about astronomy. Although Jacob & Co. created many distinct variants of this movement, it is still excellent in terms of its construction and function. Powered by a single mainspring with an impressive power reserve of 60 hours (maybe longer or shorter depending on model variations and added complexity), essentially apart from the mainspring barrel and winding and setting “bow” Each component of the (crown replacement caseback) plays a role in this four-arm assembly.

Four arms with a double axis tourbillon (which I’ll explain shortly as a triple axis tourbillon), a blue magnesium miniature planet Earth, a 1 carat, 288 faceted Jacob cut diamond, which also goes around it Self-rotating shaft, and differential drive sub-dial for the time. These four arms rotate simultaneously on the face of the watch in less than 10 minutes – it is this rotation that adds a third 10-minute axis to the tourbillon.

The time display rotates with this assembly, so to prevent it from being upside down while running around the copy watch face, a differential is required. This allows the sub-dial to remain level, the hands to be driven, and the entire assembly to rotate together.

The tourbillon and rotating diamonds may be impressive, but two of my favorite astronomical achievements are this differentially actuated time display, and the fact that each two opposing arms are perfectly balanced against each other. Here’s some cool “invisible engineering” to keep the movement from being overly strained by the overweight arm that pulls or pushes the precision-running train assembly.

The heart of this astronomy is, of course, its roulette complexity. Press the button at the 8 o’clock position of the case, the roulette wheel is forcibly rotated, and the small white ceramic balls fly. To prevent it from entering the movement, the entire roulette function is set under a piece of sapphire crystal. The functionality of this complication is reassuring every time the button is pressed, and the overall execution of its every detail is as spectacular as it’s damned.

The wheels are made of 18k rose gold with black and red enamel for its 36+1 pockets. As I said, the thickness is 27.9mm, while the case diameter is 47mm. Oddly enough, with the lugs being so short and angled sharply downward, overall wear resistance is another way Astronomia Casino plays with the senses. Seen directly from above, the overall effect is manageable—even on my narrow wrist, which is 6.75 inches in diameter. However, once I start laying the watch flat away from myself, it starts to show off its crazy case construction, topped by a generously curved sapphire crystal. Speaking of which, the strap is a single sapphire crystal strap that, when paired with the skeletonized lugs, provides an easy view of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia casino in action.

As shown here, it is a one-of-a-kind piece. It’s certainly far more fun to play than any traditional grand complication, and even if one isn’t a gambler, the way this movement is constructed is sure to appeal to watch lovers inside.

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Watch

In 2014, Jacob & Co. best is back with an amazing timepiece sure to impress everyone from traditional watch lovers to the general public. Watching the video of the new astronomical tourbillon below, it’s easy to see why “wow” is the quintessential response to this complex and very interesting horological creation. When and if Astronomia will actually be produced is another question, but even if the timepiece is still a digital video, I’d be happy to create a pure concept.

The whole point of the Astronomia will give you the “four-arm” movement, it has a dial of the day (when the entire movement is rotated around its axis, it twists to keep it upright), the tourbillon (technically it’s at 2 pivot points), a rotating seconds indicator, and a rotating sphere inversion seconds indicator. Astronomia Sky more or less retains this performance (though designed and executed differently) and adds some astronomical complexity. Looking around the periphery of the dial through the face of the scene, you’ll see a small hand that follows with a 12-month scale that completely surrounds the face. Now, look at the center of this four-armed kinematic structure, and above it you’ll find a small sphere that looks like the Earth. This Earth sphere has a hemispherical shield that surrounds it to act as a day/night indicator. There are only two pivot points to note here, they are the 24-hour rotation of the day and night index and the fact that the earth rotates every 20 minutes, because that is the rotation time of the four-armed motion. The little “world” itself is made of titanium and then passes through Hand lacquered and engraved. The flow of this watch under motion is a celestial star chart with a zodiac indicator on it. The face is made of blued titanium (similar to the De Bethune watches we’ve long loved) and has an oval “sky indicator” hand. The entire dial actually rotates once a year,

Jacob & Co. was one of the first watch makers to understand the power of the “crazy watch”, a mechanical watch with epic complications simply meant to be stunning in a way similar to the tone and content of many rap music videos and impress. These are designed to be “ultra-luxury lifestyle” watches for those who buy a new yacht when they’re bored and browse eBay on their phone while waiting for their personal banker to leave the toilet of the yacht they’re currently sitting on. The only thing a watch like this makes sense, it should be more impressive than most other watches the wealthy can afford.

Nothing I said was mean or sarcastic. That’s really a rather small target demographic for a timepiece like this. We’re talking about that new money, a lot of new money. This type of consumer is interested in showing off their wealth because they sometimes don’t have the ability to spend it. Having said that, a piece like the astronomical tourbillon does carry an air of refined sophistication, as it has a high horological pedigree. While Jacob & Co. luxury may have a “diversified” customer base representing people you would and would not want to dine with, they certainly have the ability to get things done when they’re at it all.

Apart from videos and pictures, there is currently very little information on the astronomical tourbillon, and Jacob & Co. has prepared us well for the “launch” of this piece at Baselworld 2014. We hope to see it in person there or eventually. Sometimes a watch like this first debuts as a computer rendering, only to be actually released a few years later, because the time it takes to make a working movement can take much longer. This may be the case, as the astronomical tourbillon movement seems ambitious. While the watch itself isn’t astronomical complications, it’s themed around them. At the center of the watch is the “sun”, which is surrounded by four orbiting objects.

These items include a time dial (which remains upright in all positions as it moves around the main dial), a rotating representation of the Earth, a rotating spherical crystal (probably a diamond), and finally, an impressive Double-Axis Tourbillon. It’s all based on a beautiful planetary gear arrangement that any engineering student (or watchmaker) would be proud of as a semester project.

astronomia casino watch

It’s unclear if the spinning Earth is in line with the Earth’s 24-hour cycle and can be clearly used to indicate anything. It doesn’t even matter because its simple action looks fun. The dial at the time was probably the most impressive to me, as its visual presentation was both clear and distinctly complex.

Jacob & Co. presents the astronomical tourbillon in a large diameter 18k rose gold case, the bezel and crystal are made from a single piece of sapphire crystal. This allows a full view of the watch face from all angles. Also note that there is no crown, which means it’s either on the top of the watch, or more likely somewhere on the back. The mechanical movement itself is designed to represent only a small part of the dial to make the case more spacious and feel like the four “planets” have plenty of room to move. It is most likely hand-wound.

As a pure sport of horological decadence, the Astronomia Tourbillon is certainly a very interesting watch, and its production cost and final retail price may be just as awesome. We at love this stuff because it makes owning a simple timepiece a lot more fun. We can look at our basic “classic” watch and imagine that somewhere, someone might be wearing an astronomical tourbillon and reading it at the exact same time of day, but with more flamboyance.

A new astronomical timepiece from JACOB & CO.

This astronomical masterpiece from Popular Jacob & Co. is better than its predecessor (astronomy), but to fully understand this latest astronomical model, we must first understand its history. The first Astronomia version was used as a star map, accurately tracking the time and rotation of the Earth, as well as conditions around the Earth. It features hours, minutes, seconds, a tourbillon, and representations of the Earth and Moon rotating on spokes around a central axis (both visible under a broad sapphire dome). The Astronomia has sparked a wave of conservatism in its latest watch that has attracted many supporters of the Swiss watchmaking business, but it has also met some cynics because the watch is such an unconventional timepiece people.

Fortunately, perfect Jacob & Co. stopped most of the criticism with their new and improved Astronomia Sky. This timepiece includes a sidereal time display that follows the movement of the stars of the constellation. There has never been another watch as fascinating as the sidereal time complication, tried only on the most prestigious and complicated watches in history. According to Luca Soprana, founder and chairman of Jacob & Co., a watch development specialist unveiled in 2014, “Jacob Arabo’s idea was actually to create a kind of planetarium where all the stars and The planets are all moving around . . . ”

The Astronomia Sky‘s star map is located under an inverted dome above the movement, a roaming oval representing the stars above Geneva’s latitude. The dome gradually rotates at a rate of about 1 degree per day relative to Earth’s orbit around the sun, making a sidereal day (about 23 hours, 56 minutes, 4.1 seconds) different from a solar day. Luca Soprana said: “The great thing about working with Jacob is that he is not a watchmaker at all. He cares about the aesthetic quality of his work and asks for things that a technician would never ask for. He It required a completely different approach, and for me it was very interesting to work that way.”

JACOB & CO ASTRONOMIA Flawless Watch

American jewelry brand Jacob & Co has launched its latest Astronomia Flawless watch. Based on the unmistakably gravitational three-axis tourbillon watch, the timepiece features a sun, moon, globe and a complex movement, visible from all sides through a one-piece sapphire case. This gorgeous watch features sapphire barrel bridges in the movement, a blue sapphire dial, and a sapphire clasp on a blue strap.

The sapphire case of the Jacob & Co Astronomia Flawless watch consists of a case, a dome and a case back. Artisans take about 37 weeks to produce the sapphire components. To create the dome, master artisans cut the raw material, grind and machine it on CNC equipment, polish, finish ultrasonically clean and anti-reflection treatment. The case took 326 hours to complete, and an additional 300 hours of cutting, polishing, chamfering and brushing to complete the sapphire base. The sapphire disc that represents the dial takes 280 hours to make, and it takes about the same time to make the sapphire buckle.

At the heart of the Jacob & Co Astronomia Flawless watch is an upgraded hand-wound movement, the JCAM16 movement, with a three-axis tourbillon. The timepiece features two spherical, 288-faceted diamond spheres: one is a 1-carat Jacobean-cut diamond at one end of a satellite opposite an 18-carat rose gold and enamel globe. Between the two spheres, rising from the central axis of the movement, is a second diamond sphere – a 2.23-carat Jacobean-cut yellow diamond with facets.

Astronomical Sky at Jacobs & Co.

Jacob & Co.’s Astronomia Sky pushes the three-axis tourbillon even further.

For Jacob & Co, it has been making amazing complications the watch industry has never seen before (think Epic SF24, Quentin Tourbillon and Palatial Flying Tourbillon Jumping Hours and Minute Repeater), Astronomia 3-Axis Gravitational Tourbillon, in 2014 Launched, a game changer. Not only is it a unique complication, but it is a very beautiful watch.

This year, Jacob & Co. has taken the astrogravitational three-axis tourbillon completely to another level by adding a world-first astronomical complication.

The new Astronomia Sky introduces a three-dimensional star display, a unique day/night indication, an orbiting seconds hand, a gravitational three-axis tourbillon – of course – and a spherical orange sapphire moon.

This timepiece’s Celestial Dial is a blue grade 5 titanium dial featuring an 18-carat Venus and hand-engraved zodiac signs that make one full revolution every sidereal year – the actual time it takes Earth to make one revolution around the sun respects star.

Above this celestial dial is the oval sky indicator, which shows the portion of the stars visible from the northern hemisphere (don’t worry, Jacob & Co. will make one that shows the southern hemisphere sky as needed). The indicator makes one rotation in a sidereal day (23.5640916 hours).

Visible through the sapphire case opening, the 12 months are displayed on the side of the stellar dial. The perpetual calendar hands indicate the current date.

At the center of the satellite axis, a hand-engraved lacquered titanium sphere rotates on its own in a tinted half-dome sapphire crystal, symbolizing night and day. Due to the differential system, this Earth undergoes one full rotation in 24 hours a day. Replica Watches Store

Four satellites perpetual motion, revolving around the dial every 20 minutes. Rotating on one of the satellites is the stunning three-axis gravitational tourbillon, which rotates around one axis in 60 seconds; it revolves around the second axis every 5 minutes and the dial every 20 minutes.

On the other satellite is the time (hours and minutes) subdial. Thanks to the clever differential gear system, the time display is always in the correct position – in other words, 12 o’clock is always up!

On the third satellite is the orbital seconds hand, a skeletonized titanium wheel that rotates every 60 seconds, and it also makes one revolution around the dial every 20 minutes.

On the fourth and final moon is the “Jacob Cut Red Moon,” a spherical orange sapphire with 288 facets. A first for the modern jewelry industry, this gem cut rotates around its axis every 60 seconds and around the dial every 20 minutes.

Wow! Just describing the watch is challenging enough, imagine designing and producing it!

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Triple Axis Gravitational Tourbillon

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Triple Axis Gravitational Tourbillon is a replica luxury watches with a stunning panorama of the starry sky and a three-axis tourbillon. In 2014, the brand presented the Astronomia Tourbillon model, equipped with a three-axis tourbillon. This year, it was decided to add a three-dimensional sidereal time indication to the astronomical watch ensemble, with a star chart and a day / night indicator next to it. The Astronomia Sky dial, made in the form of a firmament, makes a full revolution in an interval equal to a sidereal year (a sidereal year is the time during which the Earth makes a complete revolution around the Sun relative to the stars). In fact, the “sky” itself is made of grade 5 blue titanium, and for the sake of completeness it is decorated with 18-carat white gold stars and hand-engraved zodiac signs.

An indicator is located directly under the dial, which is a map of the starry sky of the Northern Hemisphere. This sub-dial completes a full revolution in a time interval equal to a sidereal day (the time during which the Earth makes 1 revolution around its own axis is approximately 23.560916 hours).

The dial is closed by a glass hemisphere, under which the four-axis modular design can be seen in detail. In the center of the structure is a hand-engraved lacquered titanium globe. The ball revolves around its own axis under the protection of a tinted sapphire crystal dome, symbolizing the change of day and night. Ball rotation speed – 1 full revolution every 20 minutes.fake watches uk

The modular structure itself rotates at the same speed, at one end of which there is a three-axis tourbillon. The speed of rotation of the tourbillon along different axes is as follows: 60 seconds around the first axis, 5 minutes around the second and 20 minutes around the third.

The upper part of this cosmic composition is occupied by a small dial with hour and minute indication. Thanks to the differential system, the hour indexes are always vertically positioned, which makes it possible to accurately read the hour readings in the clockwise direction that is familiar to the user.

The third “satellite” of the Earth in the unusual watch ensemble is the orbital seconds indicator – an openwork titanium wheel that makes a full revolution around its axis in 60 seconds. The fourth companion is an orange “Jacob Cut” sapphire, sparkling with 288 facets, which also makes a full revolution around its axis in 60 seconds, around the dial in 20 minutes, respectively. fake watches for sale

This miracle of micromechanics can be controlled by special rings installed on the back of the watch. The first ring is used to set the time and day / night indicator, the second is used to operate the mechanism. You can adjust sidereal time and correct the appearance of the starry sky map using the gears, which are also located on the back of the model.

The hand-wound in-house caliber JCAM11 is responsible for the well-coordinated operation of all functions in this watch. The movement with a diameter of 40 mm consists of 395 titanium parts, assembled on 42 jewels and operates with a balance frequency of 21,600 A / h, with a 60-hour power reserve.

The Astronomia Sky case is made of 18k rose gold and measures 47 mm in diameter. On the front side, the case is closed with a domed sapphire crystal. The case back is also made of rose gold. The case water resistance is 30 meters. The watch is proposed to be worn on an alligator leather strap with a pink gold folding clasp.

ASTRONOMIA CASINO: No return on investment in roulette

Time can be everything in a casino. Sitting at the right table at the right time can be the difference between jackpots and house wins. Now you can wear a high-quality watch with a casino theme on time.

Watchmaking expert Jacob & Co. is based on their 2014 Astronomia Tourbillon intricate design. This watch deviates from the usual high-end fashion and timeless design, and instead adopts a more eye-catching timepiece, which contains a lot of details depicting the movement of the sun, the moon and the earth.

This watch seems to be the beginning of Jacob & Co.’s new movement, and they subsequently launched a new watch made in a similar way, although this time it is a roulette theme. Below are the details of this amazing new member of the Astronomia series.

A special casino inspired landscape
Whether you play online roulette or have never set foot in a casino, there is no denying that this is a unique watch made with excellent details and exquisite craftsmanship. The roulette table sets the background for the typical astronomical elements sitting on it.ASTRONOMIA CASINO

The roulette design is creative, subtle and bold. Because of the unusual design depicted by the roulette on the surface of the watch, it is enough to attract people’s attention. Roulette is almost like a monument, or a love letter to one of the most famous and popular casino games.

It is undoubtedly a one-of-a-kind watch, so large that it cannot be hidden under the sleeve of your shirt. It is perfect for anyone who is interested in a casino or is indeed a roulette player.

Hands, dial and case
However, watches are not all about aesthetics. Watchmakers of this caliber are leading the way in using high-quality materials and designing them into powerful timepieces. The work is powered by the manufacturer’s internal manual Calibre JCAM2A, has about 60 hours of reserve power and runs at a beat rate of 3Hz.

This internal engine of the watch is hidden from below to provide additional protection. But when staring through the first-class shell, all aspects of it can be seen from above. For anyone who needs to wind a Wholesale watch, for convenience, there are two keys on the back of the case, but they are tightly sealed to maintain the delicate beauty of this casino-inspired timepiece.

The story behind the Jacob & Co Astronomia Everest watch

This watch fake was made in collaboration with Johan Ernst Nilson and contains rocks from Mount Everest and water from Poland.

Jacob & Co has launched an extraordinary new Astronomia Tourbillon watch, which contains water from the Antarctic and Arctic and rock fragments from Mount Everest. This timepiece was created in collaboration with explorer and environmentalist Johan Ernst Nilson, who personally collected precious water and rock samples.

This stunning timepiece demonstrates Jacob & Co and Nilson’s commitment to reducing the effects of global warming. The company will donate 10% of each sale to the charity chosen by the buyer.

Making a watch that has a real impact on climate change is an essential element of Nilson. He started exploring in the early 1990s and has since climbed all seven peaks and visited the poles. He witnessed the impact of climate change firsthand.

Nielsen said in an interview with “Elite Traveler”: “I would say go to the glacier, you will see them in a very different way, because they are slowly disappearing. I will not say that I can see my children when they grow up. I have a lot of confidence in these glaciers. I have ventured for 25 years and it is very different from when I started. If this is the rate of change in 25 years, what will happen in 500 years? And it’s not just these places. They are famous Location, but you can see a lot of these changes in places like Amsterdam and the Maldives.”

Astronomical Mount Everest has been in preparation for three years. Most of the time is spent collecting precious materials and trying to put them together. Each timepiece contains transparent buckets collected from two poles. Naturally, the Arctic water is at 12 o’clock and the Antarctic water is at 6 o’clock. Inlaid in the center of the timepiece is a beautiful rock from the highest mountain in the world.

Expedition to Mount Everest
Every buyer will be invited to fly to Mount Everest with Nelson to see the exact location where the rock was collected. Before flying home to spread the news, they will also see the rapidly receding glaciers of the Himalayas. Nielsen hopes that watch owners can start the right conversation in a strong circle. He believes that wealthy people-those who can afford watches worth $884,800-play an important role in the transition to a green economy.

He said: “This will be a conversation. You sit at the table and discuss the North and South Pole, it reminds you of the beautiful nature we have on this planet.

“Although their proportion is small and their lifestyle is different from that of many other people, they can have a big impact. These big companies and the rich can have a much bigger impact than they think. Especially in social networking In the media, people with millions of fans, I don’t think they realize what they can do with this power. I hope that every time someone sees this watch, they will be reminded to do something good.”

The exposed mechanism of the Astronomia Tourbillon makes it look fragile, but Nilson has proven that the appearance is deceptive. Nilson wore the standard Astronomia Tourbillon in the harshest environment in the world and stated that it was as sturdy as any outdoor watch.

“I wore an astronomical tourbillon the last time I climbed the Himalayas, where I climbed 6,200m (20,341ft) under extreme conditions of -30C (-22F),” he said. “It performs perfectly in all conditions. I use it to climb up ice walls and use my ice axe to hit it on rocks and ice. We really work hard. I will test these watches to see if we can Make any small changes to it, but we have tested it for three years, so we are ready.”

The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Sapphire Crystal

Jacob & Co. adhering to the brand’s reputation for luxurious performances, introduced the world’s first decimal minute repeater watch with a transparent sapphire crystal case. This is not the first minute repeater watch with a transparent sapphire crystal case; this difference is attributed to Speake-Marin’s Légèrete, a one-time product produced in 2019. However, Twin Turbo Furious Sapphire is the first minute repeater watch with a sapphire crystal case produced in the series, not just any sapphire crystal case. Please note that it is a complicated case from the Twin Turbo Furious series. There are dual three-axis tourbillons and a single-button chronograph. Similarly, it is not just any minute repeater, but a decimal minute repeater, which is rarely seen in the complications of the minute repeater. The three timepieces in the Twin Turbo Furious series are limited to six editions, including a “Bugatti Blue” watch, which convincingly demonstrates the complex machinery that promotes complex functions.

Performer
As a master of extreme limit watches, Jacob Arabo is not afraid of “impossibility.” The more the better, seems to be the basic idea of ​​Jacob & Co., where the craziest complication and the craziest combination of cases come to life. Twin Turbo Furious has amazing complications and is not a new product. It was released during Baselworld 2018. It uses a black DLC titanium and carbon fiber case. Features: noon dial with small seconds at 9 o’clock; single-button chronograph with minute counter at 3 o’clock And central seconds; reference time inspired by racing pit plate; decimal minute repeater, every 10 minutes and minutes; dual three-axis high-speed tourbillon; and power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock.

The next step is to take the complex hodgepodge and store them in a transparent sapphire crystal case. Inspired by super sports cars and high-performance cars, the streamlined case of Twin Turbo Furious is widened and raised at the bottom to accommodate the 3D spectacle of the double tourbillon. There is a slider on its left side that activates the decimal repeater, and the crank on the crown can adjust complication.

Sapphire crystal case
The intricate sapphire crystal case of Twin Turbo Furious poses a huge challenge. The “regular” Twin Turbo Furious unique pentagonal 57mm x 52mm housing has 88 components; this sapphire version has 89. The development of the sapphire crystal case took 15 months to design, produce and perfect, including cultivating the sapphire crystal with alumina, and then shaping the case through a combination of high-tech digital machinery and traditional manual polishing. Machining the different geometric planes and angles of the case, including the iconic double bezel, is a complex task, but hand-polishing the crystal to achieve its transparency is also a complex task. The only part of the case that is not made of sapphire crystal is the 18k white (or rose) gold crank at 3 o’clock for winding and setting complications. The difference between these three watches is the colored chapter ring made of Neoalithe, which is a material made of resin and developed in Switzerland. The material can be selected from red, green or blue, and can resist ultraviolet, heat and physical shocks. The Bugatti watch has a “Bugatti Blue” Neoalithe ring with the company logo on the front.

Minute repeater
Installing an exotic decimal minute repeater inside the sapphire crystal case-the world’s first-is another complicated task. The compromise of the watch design is to take gongs and hammers into account while ensuring high-quality sound. The decimal minute repeater is more intuitive than the traditional minute repeater. It does not report the time in hours, quarters and minutes, but in ten-minute intervals after the last hour and minute. The crystal lever on the left side of the case activates the crystal clear sound of the cathedral gong of the decimal repeater. At 12 o’clock, you can see the hammer of the minute repeater in decimal.

Dual three-axis tourbillon and single button chronograph
The double tourbillon and chronograph that adjust the time display spin in space in a lightning-fast but controlled continuous motion. Relying on two adjustment mechanisms, the ultra-light cage rotates along three rotation axes at a speed of 24, 48 and 180 seconds. Each three-axis tourbillon consists of 104 parts and weighs only 1.15 grams.

Likewise, simple solutions are not the hallmark of Jacob & Co. fake watches. As you might expect, the chronograph is a one-button type, equipped with a traditional column wheel and horizontal clutch. However, the stopwatch device incorporates an original reference time indicator in minutes and seconds that can be set on the crown. The pit board function is inspired by the timing panel used in racing events and is a simple way to compare two elapsed times. The elapsed seconds that are greater than the reference time are located in the red part (+) of the pit plate, and the seconds that are lower than the reference time are located in the yellow and green parts (-). The dial opening directly above the double tourbillon indicates the minutes and seconds reference time that can be set via the crown (up to 5 minutes and 59 seconds). Then, the pit plate wheel displays the difference in seconds compared to the reference time when timing the event.

In order not to miss any movement inside this stunning timepiece, the dial is made of dark gray sapphire crystal, partially revealing the 832 components of the manual winding motor. Hours and minutes are indicated by two-tone skeletonized hands driven by gears connected to a dual three-axis tourbillon. The hour markers corresponding to the central seconds hand are applied to the outer track of the dial. They are made of green, blue or red Neoralithe, and are treated with Super-Luminova, just like the hour and minute hands.

Jacobs Corporation JCFM05
The hand-wound movement-the JCFM05 movement-is exposed from all sides of the case and deserves admiration. The movement operates at a speed of 21,600vph and can produce a power reserve of up to 50 hours. With 832 components, 75 jewels and haute horological decorations-manually tilted and polished plates and bridges, round grains and polished screws-the integrated chronograph movement is equipped with a patented dual mechanical safety function, which starts at the time.

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette Watch

Last year in 2014, Jacob & Co. launched a very interesting watch, which they called the astronomical tourbillon (it debuted here). When they made their debut, I had no chance to see this piece in person, I am not sure if the original Astronomia Tourbillon case style (check the link above) was actually delivered, because according to these new 2015 Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon In the picture, there is a brand new case design. The sheer complexity of a watch movement requires a lot of adjustments to make it work, and it takes years of effort. However, in 2015, it looks like the Jacobs astronomical tourbillon is back with a new case design and the very “Jacobs”. The version is called Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette, with a lot of diamonds.

Below, you can see the running video of Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon last year. Most of the movement is placed on a series of four arms that revolve around the entire dial every 20 minutes. These arms also move to produce other actions, such as keeping the dial in the correct direction to indicate the time and operating the tourbillon. In summary, the entire ballet of Gears in Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon is almost unbelievable. More importantly, although you may like or feel conflicted about the products produced by Jacob & Co., you must make them understand that performing skills are an important part of the luxury watch industry.

Compared with the large sapphire crystal bubble dome on the original Astronomia design, this new 2015 case is more meaningful. We are still looking at the computer renderings, but I believe that the smaller sapphire crystal (now divided into a series of windows and a large window at the top) plus additional metal can make the design more reasonable and more wear-resistant. According to the brand, Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon is 50 mm wide and 25 mm thick. The case is made of 18k rose gold and is available in diamond-set and non-diamond-set versions.

Notice that there is no crown or button on the case? The movement is actually set by two “bow-shaped” folding crowns on the back of the case. The movement is of course the most interesting element of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon. It is the unique movement of the Jacob & Co. JCEM01 movement, with a 48-hour power reserve and a tourbillon running at 2.5 Hz. Surprisingly, the movement is made of only 235 parts-considering the complexity of the concept, this seems very effective.

Let’s start with the three-axis tourbillon as one of the four arms of the movement. Pay attention to what you find in the Jacob’s case cavity. Astronomy is the manual winding movement of the entire JCEM01, and the planetary arrangement literally means sitting on the main barrel. It is really a motor barrel, designed according to some systems of American historical pocket watches. The four arms are all connected by a unique differential system that completely rotates around the dial every 20 minutes. This is the first axis of the tourbillon. The tourbillon system itself includes the next two pivot points, which rotate once every 60 seconds, and then rotate in the other direction every 5 minutes. Opposite the tourbillon is a dial that can get the moment, which is so cool because it points vertically regardless of where it rotates around the dial. I just like that. Then there is the arm using a tiny hand-painted titanium globe. On the opposite side of it is a “Jacob cut” diamond, which uses Jacob & Co.’s unique craft record to give the diamond a spherical instance and 288 facets. The planet and the diamond disco ball spin a full circle every 60 seconds. What is the point of all these rotations and movements? Naturally acts as a “hypnotic choreography”; it is about visual grandeur (and effective). So like I said, if you think too deeply about Jacob & Co.. Astronomia Tourbillon, you will keep asking “Why?” It’s not about why, it’s just because it’s cool and because they can.

Technically, because the tourbillon moves around the entire dial every 20 minutes, it is a three-axis tourbillon. The other axis is the normal rotation you see from the tourbillon cage, and the rotation on its connecting arm. It is located on the opposite side of the dial and is used to display the time to help balance the weight. The other two arms have a small hand-painted titanium representing the earth, and its other arm has a spinning disco ball that rotates once every 60 seconds.

Really, disco party? Well, this is what I said. Jacob & Co. claims that the spherical cut diamond uses the exclusive cutting process first introduced by Jacob & Co to cut the diamond into 288 facets. This round diamond should represent the moon-which makes me wonder what the “night life” on your planet would look like if our moon were actually a big disco ball. Although the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon movement looks and feels like it provides astronomical complications-but it actually only does this conceptually. This is indeed a sport for the purpose of viewing pleasure, not strictly a function-at this point, it has succeeded.

If the “standard” Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon is not enough, you can choose Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette, which replaces the night sky/space sky on the dial with rectangular cut diamonds. Diamonds are invisible inlaid on the dial and lugs, a total of 342 gems, total weight 16 carats. Although I personally cannot regard myself as a buyer of Jacob & Co. Astronomia, the fact that there may be a few people who can enjoy this kind of wrist-worn mechanical entertainment makes me happy. Jacob & Co. started shocking, amusing and pleasing again… this is what I think Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon is all about.

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Flawless Emperor Dragon

Astronomia Flawless Dragon cleverly merges the complex world of fine watchmaking and art.

Jacob & Co. launched the Astronomia Flawless Emperor Dragon, which has never been seen in the world. “This is the masterpiece of the Astronomia series,” said Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co. “I have always liked Ilona Andrews’ famous quote,’If the sky can dream, it will dream of dragons.’ I have always dreamed of creating the ultimate dragon to show the Astronomia Flawless case, and now we have done it.”

The new Astronomia Flawless Imperial Dragon has a hand-carved hand-painted dragon that surrounds the spectacular Astronomia two-axis tourbillon movement. In a sense, when you see the Astronomical Flawless Emperor Dragon, you don’t know where to look. The incredible dragon is fascinating, but the spinning and spinning tourbillon, the spinning hand-painted magnesium globe, and the spinning 288-faced Jacob cut diamonds are also fascinating. In fact, the beauty of the handmade dragon and all its incredible details are reflected in the rotating facets of the diamond.

Astronomia Flawless‘s 360-degree sapphire crystal case itself is an engineering feat, because the entire case is made of crystal clear sapphire, showing the entire movement and the emperor dragon sculpture to everyone. In short, the production of the Flawless case requires Nearly 1,000 hours of extra working time to produce.

“The finishing touch”
“Drawing a dragon and finishing touch” is a Chinese phrase that means to put the finishing touches on something, emphasizing the attention to detail when creating the 18K rose gold sculpture of the Emperor Dragon.

After nearly three months of uninterrupted work, the sculptor painstakingly created and casted a solid dragon in 18K rose gold, then polished and completed the sculpture. The dragon is actually four pieces-head, body, tail and water underneath-and then must be assembled seamlessly. This is no easy task, because the Golden Dragon is very heavy and the screws to fix it are very small. Be careful not to scratch the surface of the dragon when assembling it.

Then, the dragon turned to the painter, and he completed all the small details of the dragon’s scales, teeth, tongue, and eyes. Therefore, the emperor is alive and well with great care and golden light. Discount fake watches

In China, the dragon is reserved for the emperor and represents power, prosperity, love and passion, and good luck. In fact, these legendary rulers are called “children of dragons.” For many emperors, the dragon they used was often holding a pearl. In this case, the dragon represents authority and the pearl represents wisdom. In the Astronomical Flawless Emperor Dragon, one of the dragon’s claws is holding a magnesia-blue lacquered globe, and the other is holding a pearl (actually an 18K rose gold ball painted with pearls), which doubles as a fixed point for Sculpture inside the monolithic sapphire crystal case.

The dragon is red because it is the most auspicious color, representing the royal family and imperial power. Emperors often wore red, their room doors were painted red, and they always wrote their decrees in red ink. Therefore, red is very reasonable for Emperor Dragon.
