JACOB & CO.
WHO THEY ARE Founded in 1986 by Russian jewellery designer Jacob Arabo in the US. CLAIM TO FAME He launched his first watch in 2002 – the Five Time Zone Collection, in bold primary colours, with multiple time zones. Made for celebrities like Sir Elton John and David Beckham, Arabo’s creations boast large cases (40mm to 47mm), and he has progressed from fashionable timepieces to complicated watchmaking, such as the H-24 Five Time Zone Automatic, World GMT and limited-edition Rainbow Tourbillon collection (2005), which features the world’s first integration of a tourbillon with multiple time zone functions. The watches are made in Switzerland. WHAT’S HOT The Crystal Ice Tourbillon, a stunning diamond-set tourbillon skeleton ladies’ watch. And the Grant, a fivetime-zone watch with a sporty appeal.
