Jacob & Co. fake has always been known for its revolutionary and artistic watches. They released many luxurious designs, customized mechanisms and parts to help them stand out from the crowd. For a watchmaker who has only been on the scene for about 16 years, they have proven that their design can stand the test of time. One of Jacob & Co.’s latest products is Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity Octopus. Although its unique design may not appeal to everyone, those who like it will definitely fall in love with it. Therefore, without further ado, let us take a closer look at this new product from Jacob & Co..
This watch uses a hand-made rose gold case that can accommodate multiple observation windows and main dome crystals. Each transparent part of the watch is made of sapphire and all coated with anti-reflective material. This watch is larger than ordinary watches, with a diameter of 50 mm and a thickness of 25 mm. It also has no visible crown, it almost seems that the mechanism is suspended in sapphire alone. This revolutionary design provides a very cool aesthetic effect that draws people’s attention to the stunning interior of the watch replica.
This case is also water resistant to 30 meters. Even if it was accidentally submerged for a short while, it should not be destroyed.
Dials, hands and mechanisms
When you look at the watch, the first thing you will notice is the 3D octopus floating in it. It has tentacles all over the watch and has a cool custom design. This is the main focus of the watch and is hand-carved and painted. The characteristic of the octopus is the diamond that appears from the right side. This round diamond rotates every 60 seconds on both axes. In addition, it is a Jacob cut-which means 288 shiny facets. It really stands out and weighs about one carat.
Because this watch belongs to the Astronomia series, it also has a planetary movement function. The earth is a globe that also rotates every 60 seconds on the vertical and horizontal axis. It is painted with magnesium paint and is located directly on the left side of the timetable disc. The timetable disc is marked with four Roman numerals and has hour and minute hands. They are painted in a beautiful blue, which stands out from the octopus and is easy to read.
All these moving parts require a lot of energy to maintain. This watch also uses a revolutionary three-axis tourbillon mechanism, which will only increase the energy required. Jacob & Co. successfully achieved this goal-this watch has a 60-hour power reserve, which means less entanglement and more appreciation. Another advantage of this watch is that you can see the mechanism in action. Just flip it over and there will be a sapphire crystal back cover so you can observe all the gears in motion. After completion, you will admire the craftsmen of Jacob & Co. very much.
The strap on Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity Octopus sets off the effect of the entire watch. It is made of blue crocodile leather and blends perfectly with the color of the watch itself. It is very close to the blue of the earth and the spots on the octopus. In addition, it has a safe folding clasp that can fix the watch on the wrist. Another feature of the strap is the quick release spring bar system. If you don’t like the strap that comes with it, you can use it to easily change the strap to another type. For example, if you don’t want to be too flashy, you can decide to use a different color.
In general, if you are a wealthy watch collector, this may be your best choice. When the watch in question is more artistic than anything else, the price tag is not important. All in all, Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity Octopus is a very cool watch.
