The main goal of the Astronomia Solar Jewelry Planets Zodiac White Gold is to showcase the planets like no one else on the watch. Jacob & Co. achieved this by using semi-precious stone hemispheres on a blue titanium base. This base rotates counterclockwise every ten minutes. That’s not all. Above, the unique vertical movement mesmerizes with a clockwise rotation every ten minutes.
The movement features three mechanical arms with exclusive Jacob & Co. complications. It also showcases three colored gemstones, each in the famous 288-faceted Jacob cut. At the top of the movement, you can see an extraordinary fiery yellow gemstone, whose unique cut represents the sun. As we mentioned, it is an unparalleled rendition of the complex and vast wonders of the solar system in a wristwatch.
The incredible flying tourbillon
As always, Jacob & Co has taken an already impressive watchmaking complication to the next level. We’re talking about the one-minute flying tourbillon, which has a beautifully decorated cage that encloses the balance, hairspring, escape wheel and other key components.
