When the Astronomia Tourbillon was launched in 2014, it was the reinvention of the vertically oriented tourbillon with its four satellites in constant rotation that got most of the attention. perfect replica watches
However, driving the Astronomia Art Collection is the incredible sapphire crystal and precious metal case that shows it all.
So the idea was to develop special artwork to put inside the Astronomia Tourbillon, using its massive sapphire crystal case as a gallery, while still showcasing the incredible Astronomia Tourbillon movement. The brand started with motifs of dragons, octopuses, spiders, horses and more. The incredible success of Jacob & Co. has expanded the Astronomia Tourbillon Art Collection every year since then.
Not many watchmakers show everything, but Jacob & Co. presents the Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity White Gold Dragon. The top, sides and case back are all made of pure sapphire crystal glass, allowing you to see every detail of the fine watchmaking vertical biaxial tourbillon, as well as the incredible 3D hand-carved 18K white gold dragon sculpture.
Fine Watchmaking Services High Arts
The mythical dragon is a majestic creature that represents strength, power, glory and good luck. Jacob & Co. artisans who craft the dragons first conduct research to find the perfect dragon to use as a raw material, then create detailed 3D plans on a computer. From this, the 18K white gold casting was made. Finally, after two months or more, the detail work begins, every part of the dragon is scrutinized with a fine-toothed comb, and every surface is finished and carved, then polished. It was another three months of hard work at the engraver’s bench.
The movement is then assembled with the sculpture, taking care to ensure that nothing prevents the watch from functioning perfectly. The 18K white gold dragon sculpture winds and circles through the advanced watchmaking movement.
The flywheel was originally invented as a single-axis rotating frame to carry the regulating mechanism of a mechanical pocket watch for improved timekeeping, and the Astronomia Tourbillon takes this 224-year-old invention to a stunningly modern level. Sophistication and complexity.
The three-axis tourbillon of the Astronomia Tourbillon is at the forefront of modern watchmaking. The elaborately decorated cage of the three-axis tourbillon houses the balance, hairspring, escape wheel and many other vital components. This remarkable tourbillon features a skeletonized cage that rotates on three axes simultaneously. Consisting of a series of exquisite components, the JCAM10 is expertly assembled and fine-tuned to keep accurate time throughout its 60-hour power reserve.
It takes exactly 60 seconds for the first axis to rotate once, which is a tribute to the traditional single-axis tourbillon. The second axis rotation takes 5 minutes to complete, while the third axis rotation is realized by the 10-minute four-arm rotating platform of the Astronomia tourbillon. This allows for a bold new perspective on the function of the tourbillon when designed with cutting-edge, ultra-modern technology and timeless horological tradition.

Jacob cut diamonds
Jacob & Co. has been at the forefront of the use of gemstones since its founding in 1986 and has developed a variety of special cutting and setting techniques. The brand developed 288 facets of Jacob-cut diamonds for the Astronomia Tourbillon watch. This particular cut requires only a handful of gem cutters, and the rough is often twice the size of the polished diamond. The faceting must be very precise so that the diamond is perfectly symmetrical and round. In astronomical art, a one-carat Jacobs-cut diamond spins once by itself every 30 seconds. online fake watches
