After 2 years of development, Jacob & Co. launched the astronomer solar energy at Baselworld, which features the eight planets of the solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Jacob & Co. pushed the experience of astronomy into the 44.5mm case: Astronomia Solar, the 34.55mm diameter movement and 439 components move in constant bidirectional rotation and represent the solar system, further enhancing the realism of celestial bodies.
The first arm supports the hour and minute hands made of sapphire, which rotates counterclockwise to ensure that the 12 o’clock is always in the correct position, regardless of where the sub-dial is, thanks to the patented differential system.
The second arm holds two shafts (10 minutes / 60 seconds) gravity flying tourbillon, and its cage is decorated with the Jacob & Co. logo.
The third hand holds a hand-shaped globe engraved with the earth, which rotates on its own axis in 60 seconds, and completes a complete rotation of the dial in 10 minutes.
The two-way movement rotates in a clockwise direction, and it takes only ten minutes to complete a full 360-degree rotation. The Tanglin base rotates in the opposite direction at exactly the same speed, thus forming an accelerated, stylized view of the solar system.
The idea behind the Jacob & Co. Astronomy series has always been to highlight the position of the earth in the solar system in an interesting environment suitable for gem setting. Create a zero-gravity effect. After all, this is the basis of our time concept. In astronomical solar energy, all eight planets in the solar system occupy a place on the dial for the first time, and the sun is centered in the form of a 1.5 carat citrine with unmistakable JacobCut® and its 288 facets.
The hand-engraved globe rotates on its own axis every 60 seconds and completes a complete rotation of the dial within 10 minutes. As part of the assembly, the case also houses an auxiliary hour and minute dial and a one-minute flying tourbillon.
The new internal movement makes possible a reduced case size, new functions and faster rotation speed. The manual winding Jacob & Co. movement JCAM19 has a beating frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), which is faster than any other astronomical model.
Although the diameter is small, only 34.55mm, it actually contains 447 components, excluding gems and semi-precious stones, which is more than other astronomical models.
The new astronomical solar energy continues the astronomical tradition of abstract descriptions of the universe, combining high-end Swiss watchmaking with Jacob Arable’s sourcing skills and his innovation in cutting the best gemstones, literally and vividly Expanded the horizon. fake watches perfect
