Jacob Co.: The Astronomia Tourbillon will shine at Baselworld!
Jacob Co., don't you know? The name of this luxury watch and fine jewelry brand will likely remain in your memory for a long time, thanks to its latest creation, which will be unveiled at Baselworld 2014 in a few days!
The watchmaker has indeed gone to great lengths to attract the tens of thousands of visitors expected during Basel Week! The latest creation from the watchmaking workshop is called the Astronomical Tourbillon! This tourbillon watch has a bewilderingly extraordinary mechanism and is likely to achieve success similar to the poetic complication Midnight Planetarium presented by Van Cleef Arpels at SIHH 2014.
Known by the community as "Kink of Bling" (brand founder Jacob Arabo) already has its fans in the American show business world, but not only... You can find it in Jacob Co's commercials for the famous Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo...
Let's not digress and go back to the "Astonomia Tourbillon"? Little information has been leaked so far, but a demo video of the timepiece leads us to discover a tourbillon, an hour display, a diamond representing the moon, and a continuous globe that revolves around the dial. We will surely know more in a few days, but this watch is quite possibly one of the most impressive watches of Baselworld 2014! ?The price of the astronomical tourbillon? So far unknown, but the latter can also rub shoulders with the stars...
Bugatti Twin Turbo Black DLC
We'll get to the planetarium later, but first there's a piece created in partnership with car brand Bugatti: the Bugatti Twin Turbo Black DLC. This is not the only collaboration between the two brands, as they offer, for example, the Bugatti Chiron tourbillon, which contains an animated miniature replica of the Chiron W16 engine, and there are many versions. But today, we're interested in twin turbos.
This imposing piece gives us a grade 5 titanium case with a black PVD finishing and a carbon fiber touch that still measures 57.3mm long, 51mm wide and 16.9mm thick. A real beast on the wrist, like the brand's work, you'll get the idea, but here we're at another level of indecentness.
It is the in-house JCFM03 movement that brings this extraordinary timepiece to life. It contains 572 components and offers a decimal minute repeater function, which means that with the push of a button, the watch will tell the time by indicating the hours, tens of minutes and minutes. Thus, tens of minutes replaced the quarter-hours of the classic minute repeater. We can also observe the 2 mallets in action and part of the rest of the movement through the sapphire crystal on the case back. It allows you to become aware of the quality and finesse of the finish while indulging yourself in the crystalline sound of the multi-note cathedral bells.
In addition to this, the double triple-axis tourbillon at 6 o’clock on the dial ensures the high flying precision of this futuristic technological gem, while offering impressive visuals to take you on a journey into premium The world of watches and cars. The watch is mounted on a black leather strap for a touch of elegance and classicism.
