The Jacob & Co. Astronomy Casino, also known as the Jacob & Co. Astronomy Gambler, is another unique creation, conception, design and production from Jacob & Co. into a chain of ridiculous over-design towards its domination Another step in the goal of paragraph, interesting ultra-high-end watches-because this kind of thing does exist and has actually existed for many years.
The naughty in the middle is ruled by Harry Winston Opus watches, and is widely and rightly regarded as the original source of fine watches. A creative work that overcomes the established limitations in design and function-Jaquet Droz works in music as a teenager, with large complex functions of perpetual calendar, chronograph and automatic winding device. Why do I say that? First, because it wasn’t until recently that I realized that this happened frequently, with “major complications” instead of “one-time lemons,” and secondly, it showed that many people could afford these things to be ready to crack down on their purchases (Or even if they are not ready, they are forced to do so,
Why do these traditionally highly valued watches often suffer such a huge blow in their “value”, except for some currency-like references? One is because they are heavily overproduced. The relative richness of these top 10 replica watch sites will indeed echo. Another factor to consider is that they no longer become interesting-not in the eyes of their original owners. Perpetual calendar multimeters were easily addictive in the late 1920s, but when you can name one of the most important complications of a watch, “Yes, you can see it does nothing now, but do you know this How complicated is it?”-This is not a good sign.
Whether you like it or not, the resale value of these once-used holy state watches can tell you more about their current needs than I do. Watches that can burn six digits (dollars) when they can be purchased have been moved to watches with any one or more of the following: 1) novelty, 2) fun, 3) expressiveness, 4) uniqueness, 5) Easy to use and appreciate. As with watches, the more ticked boxes, the higher the price. Jacob & Co. Astronomer Casino goes to great lengths to tick all these boxes and then hit some more.
With its ridiculous thickness of 27.9 mm (it’s an inch, and then add some more!), it’s nothing wrong. This watch is easy to admire from close range…and the other side of the dining table. Like 1940s Francis Bacon, who sat on a boat at dinner and fixed overhead like a sail. This weight is verified by the multi-layer, versatile JCAM29A caliber, which includes the astronomical “vertical caliber”, the rotating platform of its four rotating arms, and the fully functional mechanical roulette complications below it.
First, a few words about astronomy. Although Jacob & Co. has created many variations of this movement, it is still truly outstanding in terms of its structure and function. Powered by a single mainspring with a considerable power reserve of 60 hours (depending on the model change and increased complexity, it can be longer or shorter), except for the barrel and winding device and the “bow” device (on the crown) Crown) bottom cover) is reflected in this four-arm assembly.
The four arms are equipped with a two-axis tourbillon (which will be explained shortly as a three-axis tourbillon), a blue-magnesium miniature planet earth, a 1 carat, 288 faceted Jacob cut diamond, which also rotates around its own axis of rotation and a differential Follower dial. These four arms simultaneously complete the rotation of the entire dial in less than 10 minutes-it is this rotation that adds a third 10-minute axis to the tourbillon.
The time display rotates with this component, so to prevent it from turning upside down when rotating around the dial, a differential is needed. This keeps the sub-dial horizontal, drives the hands, and rotates the entire assembly together.
The tourbillon and the rotating diamond are impressive. Two of my favorite feats in astronomy are this differential driving time display, and the two opposing arms are perfectly weighted with each other. That’s a cool “invisible project” that protects the movement from the pressure of the overweight arm excessively tightening or pulling the delicate train assembly.
The core of this astronomy is of course the complexity of roulette. When the button at the 8 o’clock position of the lower case is pressed, the roulette wheel is vigorously rotated to make the white ceramic ball fly. To prevent it from entering the movement, the entire roulette function is set under a piece of sapphire crystal glass. Every time the button is pressed, the function of this complex function will be reassuring, and the overall execution of each detail is very good.
The wheels are crafted in 18k rose gold, and black and red enamel is used for its 36 + 1 pockets. As I said, the thickness is 27.9 mm, and the diameter of the case is 47 mm. Strangely, because the lugs are very short and have a large downward slope, the overall wear resistance is another way of playing games at Astronomia Casino. Seen directly from above, the overall effect can be controlled, even on my narrow wrist with a diameter of 6.75 inches. However, once I started to tile the quality replica watches from my side, it would begin to reveal the structure of its Punks case and top it with a generously curved front sapphire crystal. Speaking of which, the case strap is a sapphire crystal strap, and when used with hollowed out lugs, you can easily appreciate the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino in operation.
As you can see here, it is a unique work. Of course, compared with any traditional large-scale complex function, it is much more entertaining. Even if it is not a real gambler, the construction method of this movement will definitely attract internal watch enthusiasts.
