About the Online watch
If the dynamics of the timepiece did not impress you, then the 47 mm wide titanium case will impress you. The watch is bathed in white and blue and has a very cool aesthetic. Using the flag colors of the Argentine flag, Lionel Messi’s home country is a polite move by the watchmaker. The bezel and chronograph buttons are made of white ceramic. The horn has blue rubber inserts, and the strap is all white rubber. However, the only contrasting tone can be seen in the red rubber crown.
This watch is inlaid with 36 rectangular-cut blue sapphires on an 18-carat white gold bezel, which is not all. This limited edition timepiece is equipped with a self-winding double composite hollow column wheel chronograph device.
Jacob & Co. created this watch to support the “Only Watch 2019” charity auction. The winning bidder was given the opportunity to meet and take a photo with Lionel Messi himself. The winner also had a unique opportunity to take a photo with the football player himself, both of whom were wearing an Epic X chronograph “Messi” timepiece.
