Jacob & Co has always known how to take a watch lover from one emotional level to another. If last year, the watch brand launched the Astronomia Solar version, putting an entire galaxy system on the wearer's wrist, this year, Jacob & Co is thrilling those who believe in luck with the Astronomia Gambler model, inspired by casinos.
This version was just launched at the Baselworld 2018 watch event this past March. The dial of Astronomia Gambler is composed of 37 squares, numbered 0-36, and the color of the squares is completely consistent with the real roulette version, giving people a vivid and realistic feeling. In particular, to help the wearer have a unique 'spiritual' experience, when purchasing a watch, customers will choose a number from 37 squares, on which Jacob & Co will mark a pearl. It seems that the creator wanted to send a message to the grave. Sometimes, a little luck will bring unexpected results.
In addition to its very eye-catching design, the Astronomia Gamble also surprises with the fine details of its movement. The first is the Tri-Axis Tourbillon, an extremely complex mechanism consisting of an escapement that winds its axis for 2.5 minutes and the balance for 60 seconds; the tourbillon completes a double cycle in 10 minutes.
True to the spirit of the Jacob & Co. Astronomy Collection. Unlike the interstellar journeys emulated by previous models, the Astronomia Gambler utilizes its unique movement system to complete one revolution around the dial in 10 minutes and around the axis in 30 seconds under a unique dial of domed glass, polished magnesium spheres and 288 diamonds Rotate once. Patented Jocob-cut diamonds and a green magnesium alloy sphere complement the roulette-style timepiece, whose gaming charms are designed to bring luck and favor to the "gambler".
