Jacob & Co. and Steet Artist Alec Monopoly create astronomical models

This is not the first time Jacob & Co fake has turned the field of haute horology into a playground. The Astronomia model is the brand’s favorite experimental place.

A miniature godfather statue and a roulette wheel have been found under the domed sapphire glass of the Astronomia hollow dial. However, the Astronomia Alec Monopoly watch may have the boldest dial ever built by Jacobs.

This may be related to the young blood infusion that the brand received in March when Jacob Arabo’s 28-year-old son Benjamin took over. Or it may be the graffiti artist himself and his iconic characters, who collaborated with Jacob & Co. to transform them into miniature sculptures and give Astronomia a new look.

Alec Monopoly has also worked with TAG Heuer in the past. He is one of the few outstanding graffiti artists whose works have been taken to the streets and hung on the walls of the gallery. Alec grew up in New York and started out as an illegal street artist, which is why he covered his face for a long time. Online cheap watch

However, he was not as good at keeping a low profile as Banksy, and was accidentally shot at a party. This lifted his veil and thwarted his days of illegal labeling. Monopoly is now a prolific producer of fine art.

The board game banker who symbolizes the power of money in our world also appears on the astronomical watch. In addition to the Monopoly mascot named Rich Uncle Pennybags, some of the artist’s favorite characters also appear on the dial. There is Scrooge McDuck and a dollar sign full of graffiti with the Jacob & Co. logo on it.

Another figure wearing a top hat is similar to Alec himself, he used to cover half of his face with a headscarf. All figures are hand-carved according to the artist’s drawings, then cast in gold and painted by the artist. Next to the frame of the double-axis tourbillon of the Astronomia movement, stands the image of the artist’s vivid imagination.

The time display subdial and the dual-axis tourbillon are located at both ends of a shaft. At the end of the second axis is a miniature globe and a one-carat Jacob-Cut diamond. One shaft rotates every five minutes, while the second one takes one minute.

The 288 jewels and the globe rotate every 60 seconds. The canvas of this work is provided by an aventurine dial that is reminiscent of the starry sky. The diameter of the case made of rose gold is 50 mm, and the height of the highest point of the sapphire crystal dome is 25 mm. Only nine people who have an appreciation for fine street art are lucky enough to be the owners of this masterpiece. Shopping fake watch

Richard Mille RM 11-02 Automatic Flyblack Chronograph Dual Time Zone Jet Black Limited Edition Watch

The Richard Mille RM 11-02 automatic Flyblack chronograph dual time zone spray black limited edition watch is a black DLC brand touted as a “traveler’s most practical, comfortable and invisible companion”. Although it is unexpected to call any of Richard Mille’s work “invisible”, it may be smaller than the typical bold work of the brand because most of the things you use are black. As for travel, having a flyback chronograph, annual calendar, 60-minute countdown timer, and GMT function (tracked by a dedicated red hand on the dial and set by a black carbon pusher at 9 o’clock) may be a bit too much. Although In this way, this watch is limited to 88 pieces, and once it is exclusively sold in the Americas, it will definitely arouse people’s interest.

Richard Mille RM 11-02 Automatic Flyblack Chronograph Dual Time Zone Jet Black watch is powered by a titanium RMAC2 automatic movement with hollow PVD ​​treatment and has a 50-hour power reserve. The size of the case is 50.0 mm ear-to-ear, 42.7 mm wide and 16.2 mm thick. It adopts a recognizable tonneau-shaped case made of NTPT (Northern Thin Layer Technology) carbon. It is equipped with a black rubber strap and a black DLC (diamond-like coating) titanium buckle. replica watches price

Personally, I found that this Richard Mille 11-02 Jet Black has a darker overall color, which makes the details of the NTPT case really shine. On other Richard Mille models that use NTPT, the red strap or larger red patch on the crown or dial takes the eye away from the interesting pattern created by the case material. It also prevents the dial from becoming too crowded. Although it is a very crowded dial, its function can be checked when needed, rather than suddenly appearing and demanding attention. A dial that can be attracted rather than distracted.

As David Bredan pointed out in the article about Richard Mille RM 011 Felipe Massa Black Night NTPT Carbon, one of the beauty of Richard Mille is that the price is determined by the cost of developing the watch, not by the internal pricing committee or marketing hype. Yes, so you will definitely get something very special. As shown on the dial, Richard Mille RM 11-02 Automatic Flying Black Chronograph Dual Time Zone Jet Black Limited Edition.
