The Jacob & Co. Astronomia Solar is the latest version of the Astronomia Tourbillon, one of the most talked about watches at Baselworld 2014. The Wall Street Journal's Michael Clerizo called it one of his three favorite watches. The display, and the fact that a company mainly known for its fine jewelry and timepieces has created something so mechanically complex and visually spectacular, has attracted a lot of attention and tongue-waving tongues. Granted, this isn't Jacob & Co.'s first high-end mechanical complication, but it's certainly the most stunning from a design standpoint, and it's certainly captured the collective imagination of the watch world. A lot of companies love this truly otherworldly, minimalist, blazing watch design,
Since the launch of the first model, the design has continued to evolve. One of the most interesting models is Astronomia Sky, which includes a sidereal time indication and star map.Replica BRM R12-46 Bronze Watch
The latest version of Astronomia is Astronomia Solar. The Solar differs from other Astronomia watches in many ways. The first one you might notice is that the central carrier has three arms instead of four. The time is displayed on a dial (mounted on a differential gear system that ensures 12:00 is always on top to make the time easier to read), the tourbillon is on the second carrying arm; the globe representing the earth is on the third arm . The center of the carrier is a 1.5 carat citrine with 288 facets.
Astronomia Sky introduces new celestial-inspired complications to Astronomia: sidereal displays, vertical month displays, zodiac signs, day and night indications, as well as celestial panoramas, orbital seconds display and Jacob-Cut® Diamond Moon have all added a complete overhaul of the iconic Planetarium.replica watches price
The patent covers Jacob & Co.'s way of ensuring that the hour and minute displays are always oriented correctly for easy time reading. In fact, since the display always moves clockwise, the display moves slightly counter-clockwise, ensuring that 12 o'clock is always in the correct position.
Additionally, a patent covers the way Astronomia implements the three-axis tourbillon. Inside the tourbillon there are two axes, while the third is where the tourbillon rotates around the dial in 10 minutes.
Jacob & Co. patented the Day/Night Indicator, which includes a globe representing the Earth and a hemispherical smoky sapphire crystal that makes one full revolution in 24 hours. The part of the earth covered by the smoky sapphire crystal represents night, while the uncovered part represents day.wholesale replica watch
