This year, Jacob & Co. expanded the EPIC X series with EPIC X Racing. The new color version of EPIC X has pushed the sportiness of these timepieces to new heights. The Epic X watch was launched in 2013 and is a modern version of one of the most traditional forms of watchmaking: a hollowed-out watch or a hollowed-out watch. The movement can be seen through the dial and the back of the watch, and it is very good, without affecting the movement. Under the premise of function, as much metal as possible is removed. The purpose of finely crafted skeleton watches is to achieve the highest transparency, and the combination of visual brightness and structural integrity makes this watchmaking technique highly appreciated.
Unlike most skeleton watches, the latter is a skeleton version of ordinary watches. The Epic X series revolves around a specially constructed movement-the exclusive Jacob and Co. movement JA, which was designed as a skeleton movement from the beginning.
The movement components are supported by two beam-like structures, which are located on the sides of the two most prominent elements in the movement: the barrel and the barrel, which store the energy required for the operation of the watch; the balance is at 6 : 00 oscillates, the watch records the time The high-tech nature of the movement contrasts sharply with its fine finishing, including carefully chamfered bridges and mirror-polished screws. The entire assembly is highly polished and mounted to perfectly display dynamic jewelry.
Engineers and watchmakers at luxury Jacob & Co. have found a way to add color to the EPIC X by inserting plug-ins in the unique case, while using new materials in the case itself. The two watch case styles are micro-blasted and satin-finished grade 5 titanium (EPIC X Racing Titanium watches) and black DLC-coated grade 5 titanium (EPIC X Racing Black timepieces).
Add color with inserts that fit the structured shell. In all versions, EPIC X is engraved on the bridges on the right, with matching colored paint on these bridges. Similarly, the engraved Jacob & Co. logo appears on the inside of the case. Titanium (grade 5 titanium alloy with colored rubber lining) and Black (black is Black DLC grade 5 titanium alloy with colored Neoalithe lining) available colors are red, blue, orange and white.
