Positioned as everyday luxury sports watches, the Jacob & Co Epic X collection features skeletonized dials. Carrying the collection forward through 2022, after numerous iterations, is the blue titanium Epic X Chrono Tourbillon.
Of all Jacob & Co’s over-the-top offerings, the Epic X-Series is relatively understated. The titanium case, skeletonized dial, rubber strap, and “x” motif on the dial and lugs position it as a luxury sports watch in the Jacob & Co. world. Of course, there were several styles that pushed it even further, one of which was the Lionel Messi edition in 2019 (the diamond-encrusted version became a hit that same year). In 2022, Jacob & Co presents the Epic X Blue Titanium Epic X Chrono Tourbillon with tourbillon, chronograph and 200-meter water resistance.
