Hands-on: Jacob & Co. Astronomy Solar

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Solar is the latest version of the Astronomia tourbillon. The tourbillon made its debut at Baselworld in 2014 and is one of the most watched watches. The exhibition, and the fact that a company famous for high-end jewelry and watches created such a complicated mechanical device that is visually eye-catching has caused many people to turn their eyes and their tongues tremble. Of course, this is not the first high mechanical complexity of Jacob & Co., but from a design point of view, this is undoubtedly the most amazing, and it does have the collective imagination of the watchmaking world. Many companies have adopted this truly top, minimalist, large or large watch design,

Since the introduction of the first model, the design has continued to evolve. One of the most interesting models is the Astronomia Sky, which includes real-time display of stars and star maps (we conducted hands-on experiments earlier this year). We are also very happy to work with Jacob & Co. founder Jacob Arabo and watchmaker Meet Luca Soprano of the watch design studio Studio 7h38 (the movement and watch partner of Jacob & Co.) in the office to talk about “Astronomy” in a video.

The latest version of astronomy is astronomy solar. Solar is different from other astronomical watches in many ways. The first thing you may notice is that the center bracket has three arms instead of four. The time is visible on a dial (the dial is mounted on a differential gear system, which ensures that 12:00 is always placed on the top for easy reading of the time), while the tourbillon is located on the second swing arm. The earth representing the earth is on the third arm. The center of the carrier is a 1.5 carat citrine with 288 facets.
