Take a look back at how luxury Jacob & Co. has created some of the craziest, craziest and most complex watches in the past few years.
Jacob & Co created the watch that caused a sensation at Baselworld 2018. Decimal minute repeater; and single-button chronograph with reference time indication! For some people, it is surprising to find that the most complicated watch of Baselworld is “Jeweler Jacob”, and for others who have been following the brand, Twin Turbo Furious represents spectacular and difficult Believed complex watch brands are capable of producing.
Jacob Arabo (Jacob Arabo), the founder and chairman of Jacob & Co., has excellent acting talent. Based on his background and experience in photography and jewelry design, he has developed a vision for the watch industry, which is truly unique in terms of aesthetics and technology-to say the least. There is no doubt that Jacob&Co. watches are extraordinary and spectacular pieces, and the design of these classic pieces may give people a refreshing impression. However, Jacob brought something unique and interesting to the fake watch industry. This is especially true given the conservative attitude adopted by many watch brands in the past few years. You need people to venture beyond the mainstream.
Jacob (Jacob) opened his own jewelry company in New York in the 1980s and quickly gained a reputation as a celebrity. He started manufacturing watches in 2002 and was known for men’s watches set with diamonds before setting foot in more technical fields. If you can combine technology with creatives, you will be attractive.
The first milestone in the brand’s mechanical watch records is Quenttin, which was jointly developed with Quertin in 2006. BNB is a high-end mechanical movement expert founded by Mr. Buttet, Navas and Barbasini. This innovative timepiece has a vertical movement and a lateral tourbillon. It also has an impressive 31-day power reserve in seven barrels.
When Jacob & Co. opened its Swiss headquarters, one of the main steps in the development of the company’s watch business was. The brand now has two headquarters: one in New York, specializing in the jewelry industry, and the other in the heart of Geneva’s watchmaking industry, specializing in watchmaking. In the suburbs of Plan-les-Ouates, the brand develops watches. The assembly and final quality control of the watch are carried out in-house. Jacob & Co. also cooperates with some long-term Swiss partners.
Luca Soprana, co-founder of the watch/calibre design and development company Les Ateliers 7H38, is one of the main partners of the Jacob Arabo watch project. The soprano developed astronomy and epic SF24 (see below). He also serves as a consultant for other projects. He told Monochrome, “Jacob knows what he wants. He is always looking for something that is aesthetically different and prompts you to find new solutions. Every time we do a new development, it will never make it. Safety. You must be prepared to explore areas beyond the traditional mechanical watchmaking industry. Since the end of the Opus series, I have nothing like creativity in the high-end mechanical watchmaking field.”
Just one year after the Swiss entity opened, Jacobs launched the Epic SF24, which is a unique representative of the traveler’s watch, which is highly technical, functional and interesting. This watch can query the time in the 24 time zones displayed on the sliver, which is reminiscent of boards used in airports or train stations. The pusher on the side of the chassis can roll between cities.
In 2014, the launch of the first astronomy caused a sensation at the Baselworld. Astronomy uses a three-axis tourbillon to control the movement of stars (including spherical 288-face Jacob (Jacob) cut diamonds), presenting the celestial world with the poetry of celestial bodies. One of the main technical challenges is to provide power at the extreme end of each of the four arms and keep it fully balanced. It requires the use of ultra-light magnesium to make a globe opposite to a one-carat diamond. The tourbillon itself needs to be balanced. This mechanical microcosm is protected under the impressively high domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Since then, people have proposed several astronomical evolutions, including astronomy tourbillon clarity Octopus or astronomy sky, and a unique three-dimensional display has been added under the four-arm mechanism.
The watch series created over the years is impressive. Among them, we are going to mention the Opera Godfather Edition, which includes a three-axis tourbillon, a Godfather-themed music mechanism and a miniature Don Vito Corleone in the center!
