Timepieces are an expression Jacob & Co. uses to express creativity, friendship and affinity. This mentality defines a collection of collaborative luxury replica watch. They demonstrate the extent to which Jacob & Co. has been able to adapt its watchmaking collections to include personal symbols and functions to celebrate achievement. Astronomia Alec Monopoly replaces the planets on its rotating platform with the artist's signature character. Astronomical Sky Mount Everest is a tribute to Swedish explorer and activist Johann Ernst Nielsen. It is a black-gold interpretation of the existing Astronomia Solar and features a rock from Mount Everest itself and two vials containing water from the South Pole and North Pole. Michael Blakey is a Grammy nominated record producer, drummer and songwriter. Known on social media as "Producer Michael", he is a friend of Jacob Arabo. He created the limited-edition Epic X collection with drumsticks and iridescent Neolith bezels on his hands, all symbols that Blakey holds dear to his heart. These particular creations extend into the world of movies, and Jacob & Co. has invested heavily as they work with several notable movie franchises, one of which is Fast and the Furious. It inspired the twin-turbo Fast and Furious as well as a more personal version.

Godfather, an offer you can't refuse Movies are a never-ending source of cultural influence. But they hardly moved to watchmaking. How can it be imagined that a mob drama, no matter how acclaimed, epic and referential, could be turned into a clock? Jacob & Co.'s idea was to have the godfather Don Vito Corleone in a tuxedo and red carnations in the middle of the watch, surrounded by two musical instruments. On demand, their tunes are activated according to the principle of a music box, whose cylinders can be shaped according to Jacob Arabo's guidelines, such as bullets, or set with diamonds. As the music plays, the entire movement rotates inside the case like a vinyl record. That piece was the original score by Nino Rota in the Francis Ford Coppola movie. On some models, the entire setup is done by the minute repeater. Meanwhile, the three-axis tourbillon is invigorating the movement in a golden cage, a fitting symbol of Padrino’s life after all. The domed sapphire glass and tear-off sapphire case allow you to see the inner workings of the movement at a glance. A fertile graphics ecosystem, The Godfather also inspired the creation of the pen and a version celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first film.

Astronomia may just be Jacob & Co.'s richest collection. It allows for infinite interpretation and additional complexity. One of the most interesting is Astro Casino. It starts with the Astronomia core design, a perfectly balanced rotating platform with four arms. As this whole rotates on its axis in ten minutes, so do the hour and minute dials, and therefore remain upright. There are also 288 Jacobs-cut diamonds representing the moon. Magnesium and blue paint balls act as our earth. Finally, the dual-axis tourbillon creates its own rotational pattern. Between this carousel and the bottom part of the movement, Astronomia Casino features a roulette wheel with all 37 pockets. Its ceramic ball gets stuck between the red and black numbers and the sapphire panel, preventing it from acting as a wrecking ball. When the putter at 8 o'clock is activated, the roulette wheel spins away from the ball. The gorgeous nature of this game's animation fits perfectly with the diamond setting. The front and sides of the four lugs, the bezel, the ring around the roulette and its central section are adorned with a generous amount of baguette-cut pure diamonds, as is the rose gold clasp. There are 266 in total.

Compared to the Twin Furious model built for Bugatti in 2020, the Jean Bugatti 2022 Edition looks almost demure, but has plenty of power under the hood. As the son of Ettore Bugatti, Jean is not only a driver, but also a designer and engineer. Therefore, this watch designed in his honor has a retro racing spirit, combining the performance of a chronograph with the precision of a double tourbillon. The focal point is the central chronograph display, with two blue retrograde hands pointing to the seconds and ten. The 30-minute jumping seconds display appears between the two tourbillons. The new 470-component movement, visible through the sapphire caseback, includes an adjustment mechanism dedicated to the chronograph function. Brilliant way for Jacob & Co.
