Jacob & Co. Astronomical Tourbillon Watch
Watch lovers or those who just need a great timepiece, the new Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon is a masterpiece of timepieces. Currently, this timepiece is a concept, a vision that the brand is turning it into reality. The design was released at the Basel International Watch and Jewellery Fair in 2014. It is indeed a very eye-catching and high-value timepiece. Whether it will debut in the form of computer rendering or actual release remains to be determined.
This timepiece was not designed as an astronomical complication, but was created and themed like them. The sun is at the center of the work, surrounded by four orbiting objects. These items have been carefully crafted and include a timetable disc, which remains unchanged in all positions as it rotates around the main dial. The representative is a rotating earth, a spherical crystal, perhaps a beautifully rotating diamond, and a very impressive dual-axis tourbillon.
The dial design of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon watch is a work of art, clear and easy to read, and at the same time extremely complex. The exterior of this timepiece is an 18k, 47mm rose gold case, and a single piece of sapphire crystal that forms the bezel and crystal. The beauty of this is that you can see a complete view of the dial from all angles. The brilliance of the mechanical movement gives people the impression and feeling that the four spheres have endless space, but in fact only a small part of the dial is used.
The movement of this timepiece has a four-armed carousel that can display the hours and minutes in full, as well as a full-carat bead-cut diamond at the position of the moon and a perfect platinum globe representing the earth. The blue enamel on the dial symbolizes the ocean and is equipped with a three-axis tourbillon. The complication rotates around its axis every five minutes, the tourbillon rotates every sixty seconds, and it rotates around its central axis every 20 minutes. The thickness of the parts is 18 mm, including a protective dome that protects the movement and all internal parts.
The core of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon watch is the unique Jacob & Co. JCEM01 movement, which has a 72-hour power reserve. The protective cover is made of polycarbonate with diamond particles, which makes the timepiece durable, wear-resistant and completely safe. Hand-carved, meticulously modified, with an exquisite black alligator strap and 18k rose gold folding clasp, it is a wonderful addition to the brand's collection.
This watch requires more than 7 space trips, and it doesn't even have fitness tracking
It is estimated that in the next ten years, a space trip will cost approximately US$100,000, less than 1/6 of the cost of the latest space watch by luxury jeweler Jacob & Co.
I try my best to avoid judging how anyone spends money, but this is a pill that is hard to swallow. Experts predict that a space trip will cost US$100,000 in the next ten years. The latest Jacob & Co Astronomia Maestro Worldtime watch is priced at US$780,000 and costs nearly 8 space trips. A space watch is more expensive than taking a family to outer space!
Now that we have arrived, I think we should talk about what makes this watch so expensive. This watch uses "the four-armed gravity three-axis tourbillon of the master of astronomy" to time, and it can maintain a perfect time of 60 hours without winding. Even when the platform is spinning above the hand-painted (and accurately) Milky Way, the watch will go crazy every 10 minutes, and it will do so.
There is a two-tone Jacob-Cut® 1 carat diamond, a handmade astronaut orbiting an astronomical instrument, a new date and moon phase display, a 200-year-old new life complication, a minute repeater carillon, and more . The diamond used was actually twice the size of the finished product at the beginning, and they continued to shape 288 facets until its weight and shape were absolutely perfect.
Frankly speaking, if your worth is unfathomable, there are many things worse than this living art worth buying. Besides, I know that most astronauts look the same, but if I used to play music on MTV when I was a kid, if it didn't look like an MTV astronaut, I would be the monkey's uncle.
Jacob & Co watches are one of the most famous watches in the world. Generally speaking, they are as impractical as luxury watches, but anyone who buys a watch worth between $750,000 and $1 million will not buy it to wear while jogging nearby. They will wear the million-dollar Richard Mille watch, which is as light as a feather and made for sports. Of course I would say that, but Travis Scott bought and wore this $1 million Jacob & Co watch in 2017.
The huge globe circles the earth every 24 hours. If you want to wear this watch, you need to learn to read Roman numerals, but you also need to be very rich.
