The Jacobs Company’s astronomical clarity tour. The palm of the hand with an impressive tour At WCL, we are fortunate to regularly review such impressive timepieces as the Jacob & Co. Astronomia series. Jacob & Co. was founded by Uzbek immigrant Jacob Jacobo and is known for selling high-priced jewelry, watches and diamonds to celebrities and hip-hop and rap artists. As his company flourished in the 1990s, Arabo became the nickname of “Jacob the Jeweler” (first appeared in several rap songs by Jay-Z and other hip-hop recording artists Middle), until 2005, he opened his own boutique on 57th Street, right next to the old Audemars Piguet boutique-AP boutique is now across the street, just a few steps away from Park Avenue.
However, with the booming business and after becoming a celebrity jeweler, “Jacob the Jeweler” (Jacob the Jeweler) was in a difficult situation in 2006. He was arrested for money laundering and IRS issues and was arrested in 2008. jail. He was released in 2010 after a one-year sentence. As expected, the cruel watches with five time zones he once sold are now long gone, and Mr. Arabi is making a comeback with an impressive “Haute Horlogerie” timepiece. From the perspective of clocks and watches, its flickering effect is smaller, but there are many amazing factors. The Astronomia series is a good example, and the Astronomia Clarity tourbillon watch is the Jacob & Co. watches we reviewed for the first time on WCL.
Astronomia Clarity Tourbillon is a truly unique breakthrough timepiece, which combines the highest level of Swiss timepiece craftsmanship and watch decoration art to enhance the art of watchmaking and create a watch that is a visual representation of the celestial poetry. Every element is consistent, visible movement, all of which are carried out under the control of the oscillator of the three-axis tourbillon heart, with hour and minute track display.
Things you need to know
No matter which way you watch, the clarity of Jacob & Co. astronomy is not a traditional watch. This timepiece is equipped with an 18K white gold case, which looks more like a cage, with six sapphire crystals mounted on the top, bottom, strap and lugs. The diameter is 50 mm and the thickness is 25 mm (for reference, the thickness of the Royal Oak Offshore is 15 mm). Due to the transparency of its structure, the chronometer watch does not look so large, so the clarity of astronomy has not reached the required level. Some sizes.

Four different elements are concentrated in the center through a patented differential gear system, an hour and minute dial, faceted spherical diamonds, magnesite globe and gravity tourbillon cage can all be found. In the center, a globe engraved with longitude and latitude lines shows the limitations of the part, in this case, the clarity of astronomy is limited to 9 pieces.
The blue and silver magnesium paint globes rotate every 60 seconds on two axes.

But what makes Jacob & Co.’s astronomical clarity tourbillon even more special is that the gravity tourbillon cage rotates on three axes. The first axis rotates every sixty seconds, the second axis rotates every five minutes, and the third axis rotates every 20 minutes. In addition, the shape of the tourbillon cage bears the iconic “J&Co”. Jacob & Co. logo

The movement is powered by the internal Jacob & Co. manual winding movement JCAM10. The back cover of the movement is equipped with two flat crowns, so the wearer can wind the watch through the left crown and pass the watch. The crown on the crown sets the time. correct.

This is a timepiece, you need to watch it in person to fully appreciate the brilliance and micro-movement watch feat it represents.
