These elements are all built on to three arms of the second platform and encircled by keywords from the Bitcoin universe. Below the upper platform is the rotating mainplate, which features a fitting integrated circuit microchip design.
The top platform completes a rotation around the watch’s center every 10 minutes, and in doing so simultaneously propels the movement’s background counterclockwise every 11 minutes. Not content with this level of animation, the watch’s mainplate also spins on its own axis every 11 minutes.
The entire rotating structure is surrounded by a single-pane sapphire crystal viewing window, providing an unobstructed view of the magic within. A black alligator strap promises unrivaled comfort for the wearer.
Just 25 pieces of this ground-breaking timepiece are available and naturally, payment will be accepted in a cryptocurrency of the buyers choosing – Bitcoin or altcoin – with a real-world value of approximately $348,000.
The Jacob & Co Astronomia Solar Bitcoin timepiece is available now. See jacobandco.com for more information.
