Astronomia may just be Jacob & Co.’s richest collection. It allows for infinite interpretation and additional complexity. One of the most interesting is Astro Casino. It starts with the Astronomia core design, a perfectly balanced rotating platform with four arms. As this whole rotates on its axis in ten minutes, so do the hour and minute dials, and therefore remain upright. There are also 288 Jacobs-cut diamonds representing the moon. Magnesium and blue paint balls act as our earth. Finally, the double-axis tourbillon creates its own rotational pattern. Between this carousel and the bottom part of the movement, Astronomia Casino features a roulette wheel with all 37 pockets. Its ceramic ball gets stuck between the red and black numbers and the sapphire panel, preventing it from acting as a wrecking ball. When the putter at 8 o’clock is activated, the roulette wheel spins away from the ball. The gorgeous nature of this game’s animation fits perfectly with the diamond setting. The front and sides of the four lugs, the bezel, the ring around the roulette and its central section are adorned with a generous amount of baguette-cut pure diamonds, as is the rose gold clasp.
