A professional athlete has just started his three-year partnership with Jacob & Co.
Known for moving the boundaries of traditional watchmaking with its incredibly complicated models that are always at the very edge of art, you probably won’t immediately think about Jacob & Co. when thinking about sports watches.
However, you can freely expect that their reputation will change, with the introduction of the Epic X Chrono Messi watch, the first of several models to be produced in cooperation with Leo Messi, an Argentine football legend, considered by many to be the best footballer in the world.
Nestled in a case of 47 mm made of titanium, with a white ceramic base, blue rubber horns and red rubber crowns, this chronograph, whose color scheme is from the Argentine flag, contains a number of details personalized by Messi, including his number 10 in red on the rim of the timer, his logo, stylized letter M, placed at the position of six hours, as well as his signature on a blue sapphire glass, which is on the back of the case.
The three-year partnership of the famous brand and the footballer will continue with the SF34 Tourbillon model, which will be introduced later this year, and will be followed by two additional models as well.
Epic X Chrono “Messi” watch is available as a limited edition of 180 models, with a price of $28,000.
