In any field, breaking boundaries and creating one-of-a-kind unique pieces is the ultimate goal, something the creatives at Jacob & Co. and Concepto Watch Factory took to heart when they joined forces to craft the extraordinary Astronomia Revolution 4th Dimension – a timepiece that transcends the limits of watch innovation.
This horological masterpiece is not simply a watch; it’s a testament to the artistry and collaboration of two visionary brands that’s been made exclusively for the renowned Only Watch auction – a biennial charity event that features luxury timepieces made by the finest watchmakers to support research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
At the heart of this creation lies a four-axis tourbillon – a world-first in wristwatch history. Another aspect that sets it apart is the inclusion of a high-frequency constant force escapement within the tourbillon carriage.
However, the Astronomia Revolution 4th Dimension is not solely defined by its ground-breaking tech specs. It also features an enchanting visual spectacle that delights the senses. Adorned with 35 meticulously chosen coloured gems, it seamlessly integrates with the colour theme of Only Watch 2023.
Each gem, delicately placed culet side up, weaves a vibrant tapestry of light and colour, because of which, wearing it feels akin to entering a kaleidoscope. Here the boundaries between watchmaking and high jewellery blur, offering an extraordinary experience that defies convention and captures the imagination.
Presented in a rose gold case, the piece ensures your attention from every angle. Curved panes of sapphire glass, held together by precious metal frame the mesmerising dial, while a wide, domed sapphire-crystal provides an enchanting view of the intricate movement and its captivating carousel.
The collaboration between Jacob & Co. and Concepto Watch Factory is rooted in a partnership marked by a shared passion for horological excellence. Valérien Jaquet, founder and CEO of Concepto Watch Factory, reflects on this extraordinary undertaking, stating, “As tourbillon specialists, we are very proud to co-sign with Jacob & Co. for this world premiere in aid of research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy syndrome.” Their joint vision and expertise have led to the creation of this timepiece, which not only showcases technological innovation but also supports a worthy cause.
With its meticulous craftsmanship and commitment to philanthropy, this timepiece embodies the spirit of exploration and possibility.
