Jacob & Co Astronomia Solar

By Lauren Jade Hill

Jacob & Co sets a new milestone in its representation of the Earth within the solar system with this reproduction of eight planets on a dial around a majestic sun, formed by a citrine displaying the 288 facets of the Jacob Cut®. The hand-engraved Earth rotates around its axis once every 60 seconds and makes one complete revolution of the dial in 10 minutes, as do the flying tourbillon and the hours and minutes subdial, all three forming an assembly. The hand-wound 447-part JCAM19 caliber is faster than any of the previous movements in the Astronomia collection. By rotating 360° clockwise in 10 minutes while the aventurine base turns counter-clockwise at the same speed, it creates a captivating view of our solar system. The 44.5mm watch is crafted in 18K rose gold.
