Astronomia Gravitational Triple Axis Tourbillon Watch by Jacob & Co. combines the highest level of watchmaking craftsmanship and the horological decorative arts, to make a watch that redefines both the tourbillon, and the concept of astronomical complications. The watch is available in 18K white and 18K rose gold case with transparent sapphire crystal sides and a domed sapphire crystal.
This unique timepiece sports a one-of-a-kind three-dimensional Caliber JCAM10 and is unlike any we’ve come across before. First of all, the central axis and the four arms of its modules make a complete rotation in 20 minutes. The tourbillon combines a fiveminute turn around the vertical axis with its horizontal 60second spin. On the opposite site, the hours and minutes subdial revolves on its axis and thus stays pointed in the right direction, thereby guaranteeing a clear display of the time for the wearer of this watch.
Pivoting at the ends of their respective arms, the magnesium lacquered Earth appears facing the Moon represented by a spherical diamond featuring 288 facets (patented Jacob Cut) reflecting every ray of light in multiple directions and lighting up the starlit sky during the 60second rotation around an independent axis.
This watch is the perfect combined tribute to astronomy and horology. It is limited to only 18 pieces in 18K white gold, and 18 pieces in rose gold.
