The Jacob & Co. approach to creating luxury hand-made timepieces is to think outside the box, which continues to bridge the watch industry with the rest of the world. Jacob & Co. thought out of this world releasing the new Astronomia Solar Zodiac. The sleek matte appearance of the case is derived from DLC treating the 44mm titanium case, completely changing the look of the traditional Astronomia. The piece incorporates the entire solar system as it rotates around the galaxy painted dial using an in-house manual winding JCAM19 movement. The seven planets are represented by half-spheres of semi-precious stones: White Granite for Mercury, Rhodonite for Venus, Red Jasper for Mars, Pietersite for Jupiter, Tiger Eye for Saturn, Blue Calcite for Saturn, and Lapis Lazuli for Neptune. The time display shown through a Zodiac symbol platform is driven using an infinitesimal differential system, allowing for a perfectly legible way to keep time. A blue large-scale alligator strap and black PVD titanium deployment buckle contrast the dark look of the Astronomia. Once again, Jacob & Co. pushes the limits of watchmaking with the release of the Astronomia Solar Zodiac Black.
