Drake’s New Jacob & Co. watch combines a fully functional roulette Jacob & Co. Astronomia watches were designed with a very special customer type in mind: the kind of people who are not afraid of taking risks, not afraid to show off and appreciate the weird complex mechanisms.
Rapper Drake happens to be such a person.
Drake likes customized fashion, expensive and fast cars, and luxurious private jets that can be customized as he sees fit-even if he occasionally lied about buying them, he ended up going bankrupt. He also likes watches, preferably limited editions. There is no such item on your wrist, and you are not a fashion millionaire.
That said, the Canadian rapper recently added a very impressive product to his already impressive collection of watches. This is Jacob & Co.’s Astronomia Casino Tourbillon, also known as Astronomia Gambler, which was released last year in a limited edition.
The luxury jeweler launched the Astronomia collection in 2014, displaying novel and unexpected concepts in white canvas. The idea behind it is to create a small, self-contained universe that you can wear on your wrist and surprise the whole world-and at a reasonable price. We have already discussed the Clarity Spider Tourbillon, which has a life-size tarantula, made of feathers and black vapor deposition, sm in the center of the dial.
Just because it is more complicated, the Astronomia casino may even be visually more stunning than Spider. To be honest, all astronomical clocks are too complicated, but this cake has fallen into an absurd situation because of its over-design. However, this is not without its advantages.
As you can see in the video at the bottom of the page and the accompanying gallery, the Astronomia casino is huge. With a diameter of 47 mm, you might think it looks medium level when viewed from above, but it is completely different when viewed from the side. The thickness of the casino is 27.9 mm, which is necessary to accommodate the vertical multi-layer JCAM29A caliber. It has a variety of complexities, and the mutual influence between each other is greater.
First, on the base is a fully functional mechanical roulette, made of 18k rose gold, with 37 pockets marked with black and red enamel. When you press the two buttons on the side of the case and the wheels start to move, a white ceramic ball makes a spinning sound.
To prevent the ball from hitting the upper part of the movement, the roulette is covered with a piece of sapphire crystal glass. The entire case is actually made of sapphire crystal, and every time you press the release button, you can see it on the spinning wheel.
Then there is the really outrageous part of this watch: the upper part of the movement is made of a rotating platform that includes four rotating arms. Yes, every element here is constantly in motion, which makes this timepiece so complicated and interesting. wholesale replica watches
The four arms are equipped with a three-axis tourbillon, an asteroid made of blue magnesium, a small dial for timekeeping, and a rotating diamond with the trademark Jacob & Co.. It will be a 1-carat Jacob cut diamond with no less than 288 facets that rotates around its own axis every 30 seconds, so you can fully appreciate its sparkle from all sides.
In addition to the independent movement of complex functions, the four arms can fully rotate on the dial within 10 minutes. Each pair of opposing arms is perfectly balanced with each other, thus reducing the burden of complications. The power reserve is 60 hours.
The most important is the sapphire crystal ball, and the strap is luxurious alligator leather with golden clasps.
The Astronomers Casino sounds very popular-to be sure. There are so many things in it that almost no one remembers actually checking the time, which defeats the purpose of wearing the time recorder on the wrist. But its exquisite appearance and exquisite design are truly worth seeing.
