Astronomia Sun Wand - Jewelry - Planets - Zodiac Signs
Astronomia is one of the brand's most prominent watches and one of the most crowd-approved. Many consider it to be the product that best represents the Jacob & Co. watchmaking branch. It was so successful that it was rejected in many editions, and today we focus on 4 in particular that give us an idea of the range of possibilities this watch offers.
The Astronomia Solar is the most compact of the collection, and what we find here is its baguette version, with its background and lugs fully set with a total of 382 baguette-cut diamonds. As the name suggests, this piece is inspired by the universe and the solar system, thanks to globes made of magnesium and gold, as well as different gems representing the different planets of the solar system. All of these gemstones come in different forms in a cut known as the "Jacob cut". It is a stone cut specially developed and patented by the Jacob Arabo organization, offering 288 facets. In the center of the movement we find a citrine, also cut in Jacob's cut, representing the sun star. Replica U-BOAT watches
Driving this work is the JCAM19 movement, the most compact movement in the Astronomia range, allowing for a more reasonably sized case, although the latter is still quite compelling compared to market standards. But if there's one thing Jacob always wanted to show, it's that he doesn't care about the given and prefers to establish his own standards.
The manufacture movement contains more than 440 components and consists of two rotating plates. The first contains 3 main arms and several auxiliary arms, at the end of which we find a flying tourbillon in a cage with the logo of the brand, a sub-dial indicating the time, decorated with the signs of the zodiac Patterns, globes magnesium and other gem planets. This one makes one full turn clockwise in 10 minutes.luxury watches for sale
The second rotating disc is the background of the dial, set with baguette diamonds. It also completes the turntable in 10 minutes, but it turns counter-clockwise. The whole presents a perpetual movement, almost hypnotic.
All of these eccentrics are housed in a case that is 43.4mm in diameter and 21mm thick. It's actually a rose gold cage that holds a sapphire crystal: one for the dome above the dial, and several smaller cages cling to the edge of the watch. The use of sapphire crystal is a delicate thing, and Jacob & Co seems to have decided to make it one of their specialties.
This timepiece on a beautiful blue alligator leather strap is a limited edition. Actor Simu Liu wore a similar reference, replacing rose gold with white gold as the case rim, and wore it on a red bracelet at the 2021 Met Gala charity gala, which raised funds for the New York Museum of Art, thought to be is the biggest fashion event on earth. This is without a doubt the most expensive watch to be worn under the opulence logo tonight. buy replicas watch
