Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette Watch Hands-On.
Ariel Adams of aBlogtoWatch goes hands-on with the 2015 Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette watch with a price of over 1,000,000.
ASTRONOMIA TOURBILLON BAGUETTE.
The Astronomia Tourbillon is a truly unique, groundbreaking timepiece that elevates the art of watchmaking above the Earth, above time.
Combining the highest level of Swiss timepiece craftsmanship and the horological decorative arts to create a watch that is a poetic visual rendering of the celestial world with every element in constant, visible motion, all under the control of the oscillator at the heart of the three-axis tourbillon with an orbital display of the hours and minutes.
Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette Watch For 1,015,000.
L ast year in 2014, Jacob Co.
debuted a very interesting watch with an extravagant movement they called the Astronomia Tourbillon debuted here .
I didn t get a chance to personally see the piece when they debuted it, and I am not sure if the original Astronomia Tourbillon case style check the link above was even actually delivered, since according to these new 2015 Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon pictures, there is a totally new case design.
The sheer complexity of the movement in the watch requires a lot of tweaking to make it work and years of effort.
For 2015, however, it looks like the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon is back with a new case design as well as a very much Jacob Co.
version called the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette that comes with a lot of diamonds.
Below, you can see a video from last year of the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon in action.
Much of the movement is placed on a series of four arms that rotate around the entire dial each 20 minutes.
Those arms also move to create other actions such as keeping the dial to indicate the time in the proper orientation, as well as operating the tourbillon.
Taken together, the entire ballet of gear work in the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon is almost hard to believe.
More so, as much as you may like or be ambivalent to what Jacob Co.
produces, you have to give it to them that they understand showmanship is an important part of the luxury watch industry.
Compared to the large sapphire crystal bubble dome over the initial Astronomia design, this new 2015 case makes a bit more sense.
We are still looking at computer renders, but I am confident that the smaller pieces of sapphire crystal which are now divided into a series of windows and one large one over the top with the additional metal makes for a more plausible, wearable design.
According to the brand, the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon is 50mm wide and 25mm thick.
The case is in 18k rose gold, and there is a version with and without diamonds.
Notice the lack of crowns or pushers on the case.
The movement is actually set and would via two bow-style fold out crowns on the rear of the case.
The movement, which is, of course, the most interesting element of the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon, is the exclusive to Jacob Co.
caliber JCEM01, with 48 hours of power reserve and a tourbillon that operates at 2.
Surprisingly, the movement is produced from just 235 parts which seems very efficient given the complexity of the concept.
Technically, because the tourbillon moves around the entire dial each 20 minutes, it is a triple axis tourbillon.
The other axis is the normal spinning you see from a tourbillon cage, as well as being spun in its connection arm.
It sits opposite the dial for telling the time to help balance out the weight.
The other two arms have a small hand-painted titanium representation of earth, and its opposite arm has a rotating disco ball that makes one full rotation each 60 seconds.
Really, disco ball.
Well, that is what I am calling it.
claims that the spherically cut diamond uses an exclusive cutting process debuted by Jacob Co to cut a diamond with 288 facets.
This round diamond is supposed to represent the moon which makes me wonder what night life would be like on your planet if our moon was actually a large disco ball too.
While the Jacob Co.
Astronomia Tourbillon movement looks and sort of feels like it offers astronomical complications it really only does so in concept.
This is really a movement made for viewing pleasure, versus strict functionality and in that, it succeeds.
Jacob conveying its fascinating immensity on to the wrists of horological connoisseurs.
A tribute to cosmos.
The Astronomia Baguette animates a four-part demonstration of the Earth s connection to the ever-expanding universe and time s relationship to the dance of the solar system s celestial bodies.
Upon an icy astral backdrop composed of 342 invisibly set white baguette diamonds, the Astronomia Baguette s three-dimensional JCEM01 caliber executes a hypnotic choreography of multi-axial revolutions.
As the highly innovative orbital display conducts its full cycle around the dial every 20 minutes, four individual satellites complement the motion with their own spellbinding presentations.
Facing a titanium hand-painted Earth, the Astronomia Baguette s Moon is composed of a magnificent Jacob Cut 288-facet spherical diamond that reflects every ray of incoming light in a multitude of directions, illuminating the night sky throughout its 60-second rotation around an independent axis.
The Jacob Cut 288-facet diamond is a groundbreaking invention of Jacob Co.
and represents a historic premiere in the field of modern jewelry.
As it orbits the dial alongside the other three objects every twenty minutes, the gravitational complication accompanies its 60-second horizontal revolution with a five-minute rotation around its vertical axis.
The resulting floating effect evokes the wonders of outer space above a sparkling starry sky.
The fourth arm of the dynamic module boasts an ingenious hours and minutes display.
Correcting for the rotation of the overall construction, this subdial boasts a differential gear system that ensures the constant position of its hour markers relative to the wearer.
This tour de force not only maintains an excellent degree of legibility, but also gracefully contextualizes the orbits of the tourbillon, Moon and Earth.
Leveraging an unconventional view of the limits of haute horology, Jacob Co.
creates a mesmerizing wrist-worn observatory, with every component working independently toward a splendidly achieved common objective.
Housed in a 50mm case forged in 18K rose gold, the Astronomia Baguette floats freely as it explores the mysterious wonderment of the universe.
As if transported above Earth, the owner is treated to a magical view of the sky s amazing grandeur, one made possible by Jacob Co.
s stunning vision, technical virtuosity and unparalleled audacity.
