Jacob & Co. Astronomical Tourbillon
On the very first day of 2017, I needed to present one of the most spectacular timepieces I've ever seen -- the Jacob & Co Astronomical Tourbillon. Jacob & Co. ASTRONOMIA SKY 750. 110. 40. AA. SD. 1NS
Before We start with information about this celebrity beast, I would like to ask you to definitely meet this watch when it is possible for you. You will never second guess.
The first edition features an 18K rose gold colored case with a diameter of fifty mm and a thickness associated with 25 mm, with a sky-blue viewing hole on the side with regard to unobstructed views. The caseback is wound and time-setting by means of two 18K rose gold colored lifting and rotating " bows".
The actual sky layer is made of genuine aventurine and 18k rose gold colored. The top crystal is a unique domed anti-reflection treated blue.
Front see: central hour and moment hands, rotating every twenty minutes Axes as well as moon formed by faceted spherical diamonds (288 tasks of 1 carat cut : exclusive Jacob & Company. patent) rotating on two axes for 60 seconds, Magnesium lacquered globe and gravitational tourbillon rotating on three axes for 60 seconds Galetas rotating on three responsable: 1st axis within one minute, 2nd axis within a minute, 3rd axis - main axis within 20 moments. The tourbillon features the actual J& Co logo included in the frame - a nice contact, rather than ruining the Aventurin background with text. Making this possible is a trademarked differential gear system.
The dial is made from magnesium - an unusual option for a dial, but the bodyweight of the gear system in order to balance everything. Lacquered Aventure numerals at 12/3/6 and also 9 o'clock. The fingers are gun blue, angled and polished.
An exclusive Jacob & Corp. manual-winding movement was created with this watch: JCAM10 - 3-axis gravity tourbillon with toned hairspring. With a diameter regarding 40 mm and a elevation of 17. 15 milimetre, this movement consists of 365 components, 42 jewels and it has a power reserve of sixty hours (low beat rate of recurrence: 21600 vph or a few Hz) - impressive. As expected, the particular finishes are impressive: hand-slanted and polished cleats along with bridges, all with side-painting, rounded textures and refined sinks. The screws tend to be polished, the barrel features a round texture, and the pinion used is tapered. Because bearings, 4 mechanical golf ball bearing units are used. The primary material used is ti - which makes the motion very strong, but also more difficult in order to manufacture, as titanium is a lot harder than gold or even steel.

This particular edition is limited edition in addition to comes with an alligator leather band and 18K Goskin foldable clasp.
The particular white 18K gold model has the same characteristics since the rose gold version, the only distinction is the gold in the white-colored. For those who prefer much more bling, there is the Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette.
