Haute Complication: Jacob & Co Astronomia

Taking bets here - which tv watch company will attempt to make a cheap ass copy of this and claim their granny invented it?



Jacob & Co is by no means your average brand. In its collection, it combines dazzling diamond set watches, with highly complicated watch such as the twin turbo. Amidst all this the Astronomia stands apart, with its unique movement that gives a different spin on pretty much everything.

You can take this literally as it features a dial that displays the hours and minutes which rotates in 20 minutes on the central axis. This is combined with a spherical diamond, cut in the patented Jacob cut, which turns around its own axis, as well as that of the center axis, and a magnesium lacquered globe that does the same. The tourbillon that finishes off the quartet that makes up the complications in this watch actually rotates around three axes.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
