Jacob & Co. Astronomical Tourbillon
I wanted to flaunt one of the most spectacular watches We've ever seen - the actual Jacob & Co Astronomical Tourbillon. I want to ask anyone, if you have the possibility, to meet this particular watch. You will never regret it.
The first version presented with an 18K rose gold event, 50mm in diameter along with 25mm in thickness, has a sky-blue aperture on the side for maximum views. The caseback is usually wound and time-setting by using two 18K rose gold working out with and rotating " bows". The sky layer is made from pure aventurine and 18 carat rose gold. The top crystal can be a special domed anti-reflection taken care of sapphire.
Frontally visible: central hour in addition to minute hands, rotating shafts every 20 minutes plus a faceted spherical diamond (288 facets of a 1 carat trim diamond - exclusive for you to Jacob & Co. ) rotating on 2 shafts for 60 seconds, on only two shafts Magnesium-painted globe as well as gravitational tourbillon forming some sort of cage that rotates within 3 axes: 1st axis in 60 seconds, 2nd axis in 5 minutes, 3rd axis - central axis with 20 within minutes. The tourbillon has the J& Co emblem as part of the frame - an excellent touch, rather than ruining the particular Aventurin background with wording. Making this possible is a branded differential gear system.
The dial is constructed of magnesium - an unusual alternative for a dial, but it gives weight to the gear technique and keeps everything inside balance. Lacquered Roman volumes at 12/3/6 and being unfaithful o'clock. The hands tend to be gun blue, angled and also polished.
A unique Jacob & Co. manual-winding movement was created for this see: JCAM10 - Triaxial the law of gravity tourbillon with flat hairspring. With a diameter of forty five mm and a height involving 17. 15 mm, this specific movement consists of 365 ingredients, 42 jewels and has an energy reserve of 60 time (low beat frequency: 21600 vph or 3 Hz) - impressive.
As expected, the finishes are usually impressive: hand-slanted and refined cleats and bridges, most with brushed sides, circular texture and polished basins. The screws are finished, the barrel has a spherical texture, and the pinion employed is tapered. As bearings, 4 mechanical ball showing units are used. The main stuff used is titanium , which makes the movement very good, but also more difficult to make, as titanium is much more challenging than gold or stainlesss steel.
This model is a limited edition along with comes with an alligator leather secure and 18K rose gold flip-up clasp. The white 18 CARAT gold version has the similar characteristics as the rose gold variation, the only difference is the platinum in the white.
For people who prefer more bling, you will find the Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette.
The background and lugs of this version are arranged with 16-carat, 342 baguette-cut diamonds - an invisible established. This version is constructed in 18k rose gold. Typically the 18k rose gold version employs orange sapphires for the background diamond lugs, while the 18 carat rose gold uses only tangerine sapphires.
