In the past, we covered the release of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Everest, an $884,800 timepiece that comes with a Mount Everest expedition with expert climber Johan Ernst Nilson. Jacob & Co. is revisiting the popular collaboration with an accessory to compliment the already exclusive handmade timepiece. Jacob & Co. is proud to announce the release of the Astronomia Everest Box, a case shaped like Mount Everest itself to house the matching special edition watch. From the outside, the watch case is illuminated using the iconic Jacob & Co. logo while highlighting the case shape. Once opened, the Astronomia Everest Box welcomes the owner with an illuminated crystal scene and plaque signifying the collaboration. Along with making it look like the watch was embedded in ice, Jacob & Co. x Johan Ernst Nilson incorporated actual wind noise recorded from the peak of Mount Everest, to play through speakers while the box is open. Although pricing has yet to be released, we believe the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Everest Box is sure to cost just as much as the timepiece itself.
