Jacob & Co has created a truly unique, groundbreaking timepiece called the Astronomia Meteorite. Combining the highest level of Swiss timepiece craftsmanship and the horological decorative arts to create a watch that is inspired by the phenomenon of giant meteorites that soar through the sky with a brilliant light before crashing into earth, it replicates all of this shine and brilliance through its use of 357 triangular cut diamonds.
The 18-karat White Gold is set with 124 Triangle-cut White Diamonds (amounting to around 14 ct.) and the curved sapphire crystal allows a closer look at the complex and detailed movement inside – the in-house Manual Winding JCAM10.
With 365 components and a power reserve of 60-Hours the watch boasts a Gravitational Triple Axis Tourbillon rotating on 3 axes; the first in 60 seconds, the second in 5 minutes and the third in 20 minutes.
Along with hour and minute functions, the watch features a Faceted Spherical Blue Sapphire that rotates in 60 sec on 2 axes as well as a Lacquered Globe Rotating in 60sec on 2 axes.
Jacob & Co’s Astronomia Meteorite is limited to just 18 individually numbered pieces, with pricing available on request.
