Today I will recommend another amazing Jacob & Co. watch which perfectly presents the high level of watchmaking craftsmanship. With two years’ research and development, Jacob & Co. released the Astronomia Solar wristwatch which contains totally 439 components and parts. The complete picture of the eight planets in the solar system of the 44 mm Jacob & Co. imitation watch has been presented through the transparent crystal case.
What is even more striking is that all parts are constantly rotating in both directions in order to present the constantly moving solar system. There are three support ring arms of the movement. The first supports hour and minute display dials made of sapphire and rotates counterclockwise. The patented differential system ensures that the 12 o’clock position is always in the correct position; The second one supports the two axes of the tourbillon (10 minutes / 60 seconds) as well the logo; the third one supports the hand-carved earth.
The yellow crystal in the center of the dial represents the sun. The blue leather strap copy Jacob & Co. Astronomia perfectly presents the movement of the earth in the solar system.
