At the 2016 Basel International Watch and Jewelry Show, Jacob & Co. launched a new, fascinating astronomical giant replica watch called Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky panoramic gravitational triaxial tourbillon. “Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky” is not a replacement, but a supplement to the original replica Jacob & Co. Astronomia (here, hands-on), adding some complexity, and actually has a smaller case.
The size of Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky is only 50 mm wide for standard astronomy, the “width” is only 47 mm, and the thickness is 25 mm. No one will be slim because of such a watch, because it is slim, but Jacob & Co. is required to make a more durable watch for its interesting astronomers. Also note that our Jacob & Co. astronomical astronomical panoramic gravitational three-axis tourbillon image is a pre-production prototype. One of the most critical missing elements in this prototype watch is the lack of anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal. This makes the readability quite poor, and it is almost impossible to photograph the details of the watch through crystal. Suffice it to say, since the “final” version of the watch will not suffer from these crystal glare problems.
The debuting Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky panoramic gravitational triaxial tourbillon watch uses an 18k rose gold case with a large domed sapphire crystal on the top and a sapphire crystal ring on the side of the case. It makes it very simple and attractive to best replica watch site the inside of the watch and the movement. And, yes, there is a pen that can be used together. Well, in fact, these pens are used as a whole with the astronomer series of watches, they are produced by Italy Visconti and Jacob & Co. These are also pre-production prototypes and they will be available in 18k rose gold and 18 white gold.
The whole thrust of astronomy is to provide a “four-arm” movement with a time dial (with the entire movement structure rotating on its axis, its rotation remains upright), tourbillon (technically on two axes Move on the heart point), rotate the second hand indicator and the rotating ball opposite to the second hand. The Jacob & Co. Observatory more or less retains this function (although the style and execution method are different), and adds some astronomical complexity.
Looking at the circumference of the dial from the side of the case, you will see a monthly indicator, which uses a small hand and closely follows the 12-month scale, completely surrounding the face. Now, look at the center of the four-arm movement structure. On top of it, you will find a small sphere designed to look like the earth. This earth ball has a hemispherical belt, which moves around it to serve as a day / night indicator. Pay attention to the two pivot points here, which are the 24-hour rotation of the day / night indicator and the fact that the earth rotates every 20 minutes, because this is the rotation time of the four-arm movement. The small “ball” itself is made of titanium, then painted and carved by hand.
On the dial below the movement is a star chart with a series of zodiac indicators. The dial is made of blue titanium (similar to the dial we have long loved in De Bethune fake watches) and has an oval “sky indicator” hand. The entire dial actually rotates once a year, and the oval sky indicator pointer rotates once every stellar day (about a day) to show the stars visible in the northern hemisphere.
As you can see, Jacob & Co. wants to add a lot of astronomical information to their astronomical watches. I think they do well in Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky, but actually make the clocks smaller. Of course, the watch is still a serious “display”, most of its value lies in the design and exquisite performance of exquisite mechanical devices.
Compared with the original astronomy, the design of Jacob & Co. astronomical astronomical gravitational three-axis tourbillon movement has changed. The “Jacob cut” diamond is replaced here with a rotating “Jacob cut” orange sapphire, rotating once per minute, shaped like a sphere with 288 facets. Opposite the Jacob Cut sapphire crystal is the second pointer, intended to be used in conjunction with some wavy structures that are intended to collectively represent a orbiting satellite.
The movement inside the watch is unique to Jacob & Co (reproduced by Studio7h38) movement JCAM11. The movement is manually wound and made of 395 parts. The operating frequency is 3 Hz (21,600 bph) and the power reserve is 60 hours. The movement is fascinating with its complexity and focuses on visual entertainment in operation.
Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky fake combines 18k rose gold and blue (matched with a matching blue crocodile leather strap), which looks particularly magnificent. This time, there are no diamonds on Jacob & Co., but if I know Mr. Arabo, then there will be diamonds on future versions of Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky. Like most watches produced by the brand, the Jacob Tianyu Observatory is part of a limited edition, and this is only 18 pieces. I ca n’t wait to see the final version with the appropriate sapphire crystal, because I think this and the entire astronomical watch series are some of the most interesting “foreign” watches, which are obviously very luxurious, but not the kind of watches we immediately assume Looks best on oligarchs. I can see the sky of Jacob & Co. astronomy on the wrist of success, the benevolent ruler!
