Jacob & Co. was established in 1986 and is located in New York City, which means that this famous watch manufacturer is celebrating its 30th anniversary. They decided to adopt a fashionable way to commemorate 30 years of craftsmanship by showing Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Twin Triple Axis Tourbillon.
The limited edition is only 18 pieces, marking a milestone in innovation and excellence, while also highlighting the brand’s unique sports style. This new product will feature the cathedral gong and pass the time in a novel way at the 2016 Basel International Watch and Jewellery Show.
Therefore, Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Twin three-axis tourbillon marks the passage of time every 10 minutes.
This extraordinary watch is packaged in a 57.3mm titanium and carbon fiber case, with a domed sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back cover and a water resistance of up to 30 meters. The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo dual three-axis tourbillon is activated by the Swiss manual winding Jacob & Co. movement JCFM01, with 49 jewels, 21,600 vph and 72 hours of power reserve.
The dial is made of smoked sapphire with a logo, which adds youthfulness to the overall appearance, while the red Neoalithe inner ring adds a pleasant color. All that remains now is to hope that the black alligator leather strap with titanium expander will one day help you to decorate this wonderful expression.
Jacob & Co. Improves Music Quality for Its Astronomical Minute Repeater
It’s like a full party on the wrist.
Since the minute repeater watch ranks high in the elite complexity of the watchmaking industry, it is usually expressed in a reverent traditional form, with few decorations except for traditional finishes. Jacob & Co. has always been an extrovert among the few repeater manufacturers, but has taken the opposite approach. Its latest Astronomia watch is equipped with a complete gong and hammer, as well as a three-axis tourbillon, a hemispherical constellation globe with two spherical half-carat diamonds, a global-shaped lacquered globe and a tiny astronaut hovering above the dial. , Lock the rotation for 40 seconds. The busy 3D composition is arranged in a 50mm wide x 26mm thick antique cabinet-sized box, with layers of gears and a circle of Aventurine in the background, hand-painted with stars, planets and the Milky Way, from the domed sapphire All of these can be seen from three angles in the crystal case.
Jacob & Co.’s three-axis tourbillon astronomical timepiece was first launched in 2014. Other works in the series include astronomical spiders, astronomers casino, astronomical gamblers, astronomical fish and several astronomical solar best watches with spherical faceted gems representing planets. This is the first minute repeater watch in the series. It has a typical Jacob & Co. style and is a blockbuster of this type: a carillon minute repeater with three gongs and hammers instead of the traditional three. The gongs are stacked on top of each other in the vertical direction, rather than placed next to each other within the periphery of the case, which makes them more clearly visible on the side of the sapphire case. The carillon bells ring for hours, 15 minutes intervals and minutes, with the notes Do, Re and Mi. The safety function prevents the watch from winding at the time signal, thereby protecting the movement from damage.
The movement is manually wound JCFM06, made of titanium and maillechort. The latter is also known as German silver, an alloy of nickel, copper and zinc, used as a substitute for brass in the movement for aesthetic reasons: it looks like silver. After three years of development, the movement is equipped with a three-axis tourbillon. The first cage rotates every 60 seconds, and the second cage rotates every 90 seconds. Both rotate around the central axis every 10 minutes.
Jacob & Co., mainly a jeweler, also launched a new jewellery version of astronomy at the Basel Watch Fair. The bottom plate of 3-D astronomy is irregularly inlaid with rectangular diamonds and blue sapphires in dark and light icy tones, forming a mosaic structure reminiscent of “Saturday Night Hot” dance floor. Four arms radiating from the central axis of the dial transmit an element around the periphery every 10 minutes. They include an hour and minute dial, a lacquered spherical globe, a three-axis tourbillon escapement and a single-carat spherical diamond with 288 facets, the exclusive Jacob Cut. The diamond, globe, time scale and escapement all rotate on their axis every 30 seconds; the differential ensures that the time display is always in the correct position, at 12 o’clock at the top. Baguette-shaped diamonds are also inlaid in the long earrings. The total weight of the gemstones is 15.44 carats. As you might imagine, this more gorgeous version of astronomy is a unique work.
