The ultra-complex and extravagant Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino
One might think that the precision of Haute Horlogerie can never be reconciled with the uncertainty of the game of chance? Well, Jacob & Co. has merged these two worlds into a timepiece with an unexpected complication. It's a twist on the Astronomia with a fully functional miniature roulette; just press a button and Astronomia Casino reveals its playful side. The rest remain showcases for watchmaking events.
Jacob & Co. has managed to create some of the craziest, most complicated watches over the past few years. If the brand has showcased more than one wild iteration of Astronomia, Casino has certainly been the most unexpected. Like its siblings, this beast of a watch stands out with its impressive vertical movement and ever-moving planet indications.replica mens watch
Additionally, it features a micro, functional wheel activated by a push button at 7 o'clock. Below the watch's four satellite arms, the roulette slots are rendered in black, red and green, while their centers are made of aventurine. Micro Roulette Ball is made of white ceramic.
Still, the movement that animates this fun and impressive premium toy has nothing to do with chance. The vertical movement Jacob & Co. JCAM29A consists of 395 parts and is regulated by a three-axis tourbillon. The tourbillon cage rotates for 60 seconds around the first axis and 2.5 minutes around the second axis. In addition, the movement rotates itself every 10 minutes. The movement's other three arm band time displays, a 288-faceted diamond rotate in 60 seconds, and a magnesium blue lacquered sphere also rotates in 60 seconds. Finally, the differential gear system enables the time display to remain upright at 12/6 o'clock regardless of its position around the dial.replica Jacob & Co astronomia tourbillon
This dramatic mechanical animation is presented under an impressive oversized sapphire dome, offering ever-changing perspectives from different angles. On the wrist, the rose gold case of the Astronomia Casino is quite large at 47mm x 27.9mm. But naturally, this intriguing, bombastic watch isn't meant to go unnoticed...instead, Jacob & Co. watches are clearly designed for the ultra-wealthy, who aren't afraid to show off their toys. Rapper Drake and MMA champion Conor McGregor are reportedly two of the famous owners of the Astronomia casino.
Flip the watch over and, like all Astronomia watches, the two symmetrical flip-up keys sit flush with the rose gold caseback. One is used to wind the movement and the other is used to set the time. Finally, the watch is paired with an alligator leather strap, secured to the wrist by an 18k pink gold folding clasp.
