Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - TIMEPIECES -

For more than a quar­ter of a cen­tury, the com­pany has cre­ated rev­o­lu­tion­ary time­pieces and ex­quis­ite jew­ellery that have cap­ti­vated most from the watch­mak­ing in­dus­try. Ja­cob & Co’s imag­i­na­tive and op­u­lent time­pieces use the world’s best gems and set stones that are the hall­mark of the brand. Each cre­ation is an avant-garde vi­sion, in­spired from the beauty around, driven by a strong de­sire to de­liver and chal­lenge the tra­di­tional lim­its of watches. The Astrono­mia Oc­to­pus, re­leased for Basel 2017, is un­mis­take­ably bold with its com­plex na­ture, sym­met­ri­cal com­po­si­tion, and mes­meris­ing move­ments. This elo­quent time­piece is a true work of art, cased in a new sap­phire monoblock cas­ing that al­lows the sculp­ture and com­pli­ca­tions to be ad­mired from mul­ti­ple an­gles. The sculp­ture ap­pears fully en­twined in the JCAM16 man­u­ally wound cal­i­bre and its sap­phire com­po­nent took a stag­ger­ing 37 weeks to pro­duce, ex­clud­ing the time to en­grave, sculpt and as­sem­ble. Be­cause of the added com­plex­ity, there is only one such piece in the world.
