Wow,what a great watch it is! To be honest,I’m so love its beautiful dial. Jacob & Co. always invents the”insane watch,” that being a mechanical watch of epic complication meant solely to wow and impress in a manner akin to the tone and content of many rap music videos.
Jacob & Co. has presented the Astronomia Tourbillon in a large-diameter 18k rose gold case with a bezel and crystal made out of a single piece of sapphire crystal. This allows for a full view of the dial from all angles. Also note the lack of crown, which means that it is either on the top of the watch or more likely somewhere on the back. The mechanical movement itself represents a rather small portion of the dial by design to allow for a vastness to the case and feeling that the four “planets” have a lot of room to move around.
As an exercise in pure horological decadence, the Astronomia Tourbillon certainly hits the spot with a sinfully interesting watch whose production cost and eventual retail price is probably equally awesome.
