Jacob & Co. Unveils the Space-Inspired Astronomia Revolution

Jacob & Co. just revealed its latest Astronomia Revolution timepiece ahead of Watches & Wonders.

Arriving in a 46mm case constructed of sapphire and gold, the special time-teller houses a brand-new JCAM48B Calibre that’s designed with utmost accuracy, speed, and entertainment efficiency in mind. Boasting a twin-axis flying tourbillon, plus a rotating dial that comes full circle every minute.

Its design draws inspiration from space, which is a personal passion of Jacob Arabo, the Maison’s founder and chairman. Fitted with 18 hexagonal mirrors that emulate the ones on space exploration instruments, the timepiece also features a miniature version of the James Webb Space Telescope’s gilded reflectors. The polished mirrors are crafted from 18-carat red gold, while the transparent caseband provides an unobstructed view of the inner workings.

Jacob & Co.’s CEO, Benjamin Arabov exclaims, “We’ve been grooming the Astronomia movement for eight years now, it started at the already incredible speed (at the time) of one revolution every 20 minutes. It is unique, unheard of, and not just an evolution of Astronomia.” He further explains that “This piece has been reworked from the ground up. It required revolutionary mechanics, inventions and what we at Jacob & Co. are driven by. Astronomia Revolution is “Inspired by the Impossible”, and we made it possible.”

Releasing as an 18-piece-limited edition, six of which come in a rose gold build, while the other six are crafted in white gold with black DLC coating, all retailing for $600,000 USD. For more information, visit Jacob & Co.’s official website.
