Any one of Jacob & Co.’s mostly exaggerated collections would be a great fit for those who live well and get lucky. But if that person also wants something a little sportier, not just faking sporty stripes and body creases, but something that actually fits his rough-and-tumble lifestyle, then the Epic X-Series has a charm. In place of the horological miracle glass windows of the company’s high-complication timepieces or the blocks of colored gemstones on the bulky precious metal cases, the Epic X is visually delicate and taut, not least because of the angled watch that seemingly extends from the bezel. The lugs endow the clock with a spidery menace, or the idealized body curves of a competitive swimmer.
In this series, the Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium is arguably the most convenient, not the few. At 47mm, it’s a massive watch, but the 14mm case height maintains a reasonable aspect ratio. Plus, the watch is still light and hard-wearing because instead of precious metals, it’s made entirely of titanium with a blue PVD coating to prevent scratches. The crown, pushers and lug inserts in white ceramic provide color contrast while keeping the weight low and exuding a certain nautical impression. In addition, the Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium is water resistant to 200 meters.
The Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium removes the typical jewels of a Jacob & Co. watch, replacing the counters of a traditional chronograph with a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, bringing a spectacle to the watch. Adding to the everyday practicality of the watch is the internal rotating bezel, which is operated by the crown at 10 o’clock. For timekeeping activities that do not require chronograph precision, the rotating minute track is an easy and convenient solution.
Another feature that lets the fake watches for sale show as much as possible is the translucent blue dial. With a sapphire crystal case back and skeletonized hands, the new exclusive column-wheel automatic movement JCAA09 is best showcased. The semi-skeleton movement has an open barrel with engraved bridges, circular graining on the plate and beveled and polished column wheel.
The blue-and-white colorway of the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium with red lacquer accents on the hands and rotor engravings is designed for easy living on the docks. This makes it more wearable in everyday life and swimming for as long as one likes it; a complicated tourbillon watch that is robust enough to go most places with the wearer. In this case, the hollow design of the pointer, dial and movement, and the white hollow rubber strap with a honeycomb pattern also have a breezy and light overall effect. This is a cool watch for someone who is calm and confident.
There is some duplication between the running seconds at 9 o’clock and the one-minute flying tourbillon; but the latter does more than just show that the watch replica swiss is running. As a flying tourbillon without upper bridges, it is on the same level as the glass dial, turning a handsome sports watch into a stunning one.
