Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette Watch

Last year Jacob & Co. replica presented a very interesting watch with an extravagant movement, which they called the Astronomia Tourbillon. In 2015 Jacob & Co. The Astronomia Tourbillon returns with a new case design in a version that is completely in the style of the brand and inlaid with more diamonds, called Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette.

In last year’s model, most of the movement is on levers that rotate the entire dial every 20 minutes. These levers also move to provide other functions such as time display and tourbillon operation. Looking at the entire gear ballet at Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon, then doubts arise – can this really be? Whatever their attitude to what Jacob & Co. produces, they have to give it their due – they recognize the need and importance of an element of entertainment in the luxury watch industry.

Compared to the large sapphire dome in the original Astronomia, the new case on the 2015 model has been slightly reimagined. There are smaller sapphire crystal areas (which are now split into a row of windows and one large one at the top) with the added addition of metal to create a more palatable and more wearable design. Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon have a case size of 50 x 25 mm. The case is made of 18k rose gold, there is a version with and without diamonds.

There is no crown and buttons around the perimeter of the case. In fact, the movement is set and wound up by means of two bow-shaped folding levers on the back of the case. The movement, which is, of course, the most interesting element in Jacob & Co. The Astronomia Tourbillon is an exclusive JCEM01 Caliber with a 48-hour power reserve and a tourbillon that runs at 2.5 Hz. Surprisingly, the mechanism consists of only 235 parts that seem to work with great efficiency given the complexity of the concept.

Technically speaking, due to the fact that the tourbillon moves around the entire dial every 20 minutes, it can be called a triple-axis tourbillon. The other axis is the normal centrifugal axis, which can be seen from the tourbillon stand, and which also unwinds in the connecting arm. It is located opposite the time dial to balance the weight. The other two levers are equipped with a prototype hand-engraved titanium globe, while its opposite arm has a rotating diamond ball that makes a full revolution every 60 seconds.

Jacob & Co. claim that the spherical diamond uses an exclusive cutting technique that was developed by the brand itself to create a diamond with 288 facets. This rounded diamond is designed to represent the moon. Despite the fact that the Jacob & Co. The Astronomia Tourbillon looks like it had astronomical complications in it – it really is just a concept. The mechanism was designed with aesthetic pleasure in mind, not strict functionality – and in that it excels.

Jacob & Co. The Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette depicts the night / space sky on its dial with baguette-cut diamonds. The dial and lugs are encrusted with diamonds. The total number of stones is 342, with a total weight of 16 carats.

Jacob & Co Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire

Celebrate the most mysterious car in the world.

Everyone likes a good mystery, which is irresistible when it comes to what might be the most expensive car in the world. The famous Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe in the 1930s is regarded as a masterpiece of car design. According to legend, it made four, and the only black version disappeared around 1940, when Bugatti transported its cars and goods from Morsheim, France to the company’s second factory in Bordeaux to protect them Protected from the Nazis. Everything else arrived safely, but not that particular Atlantic Ocean. Known as La Voiture Noire (“Black Car”), this spectacular car is an unsolved mystery in automotive history. This car has a chassis number. 57453, never found out. Experts estimate that if someone discovers this car, it will be worth more than $100 million, making it the most valuable car on the planet.

In 2019, Bugatti offered a one-time tribute to this charming car, reusing the name La Voiture Noire and selling it for more than 11 million euros (before tax). To commemorate this new supercar and the original legend, Jacob & Co. launched the one-time Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire. This watch is wrapped in 18K black gold and inlaid with natural black rectangular-cut sapphires, bringing a unique all-black aesthetic, combining the huge complexity of Twin Turbo Furious and the unique history of La Voiture, conveying the uniqueness of two extraordinary cars spirit. Noire Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire is dynamic and extremely comfortable. It not only meets Bugatti’s performance and excellence standards, but also fulfills Bugatti’s promise of multifunctionality.

Unique gem setting
The 18K black gold case is invisible with 344 natural black sapphires. Even the black gold and black titanium unfolding buckles are inlaid with these beautiful gems. It is not easy to put black sapphire in an ergonomically shaped box, but Jacob & Co.’s professional gem setters can already do it. These shimmering fragments of the night sky underline this unique timepiece to pay tribute to the greatest car mystery ever.

Crazy complicated
In the watch industry, the presence of the tourbillon in the watch core makes this part an elite. Jacob & Co.’s Twin Turbo Furious La Montre Noire is unique in this eye-catching design, adding two accelerating three-axis tourbillons to its eye-catching design. The function of the tourbillon is to compensate the influence of gravity on the accuracy of the movement. Even the case of the twin turbo Bugatti La Montre Noire is very complicated-the case alone consists of 88 parts. The large complex movement is composed of 832 individual parts, which is incredible, considering that many parts are together and are amazing in actual operation.

Fractional minute repeater
The minute repeater is the most cherished complication for collectors and one of the most unimaginable complication for watchmakers. However, when Jacob & Co. tried to make Twin Turbo Furious a reality, it pushed the boundaries of technically feasible to new heights. Most minute repeaters meet the hour, quarter hour and minute standards, but Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire sounds at ten-minute intervals after the hour and before the minute. This is a decimal minute repeater. This is very rare in fine watchmaking. In fact, you can count the number of manufacturers displaying decimal minute repeaters on one hand, with only a few fingers left.

Planetary gear power reserve
The side of the dial at six o’clock shows the remaining power. Thanks to an ingenious planetary system that includes a differential gear mechanism, the pointer points to the full power reserve on the left, and then moves to the right when the 48-hour reserve decreases. The watch is wound by the crank on the crown at three o’clock.

Single button timing function with reference time
With Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire, Jacob & Co. has further added a very special single-button timing function. The chronograph reflects the brand’s determination to always seek new solutions or create unprecedented functions, and is equipped with a “reference time” indicator. Inspired by the pit stop board in motorsports, the reference time display is located in the center of the dial, indicating the difference in seconds compared to the reference time. The original La Voiture Noire is the most confusing car fan in history. The new and unique Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire watch honors this legendary and mysterious car with a modern and complicated watches.
