Arthur Touchot as well as Alex Rose face off of and discuss their selections from the 2015 Jacob & Co. lineup. How does the actual Palatial Flying Tourbillon Small Repeater compare to the Legendary X Tourbillon Baguette?
Arthur's Choice: Jacob & Co. Magnificent Hovering Tourbillon Minute Repeater Chime Jacob & C. presents a stunning minute repeater that can be seen through a see through blue, red or natural mineral crystal.
Verdict: The Palatial Flying Tourbillion Minute Repeater highlights complications that are normally hidden beneath the dial. I adore it! It looks a lot more like a vintage watch than the brand's other novelties. While really offered in multiple personal references, I prefer the titanium type with its rose gold crown and also levers and green drinking crystal.
Alex's Choice: Epic X Baguette Tourbillon Epic X is a fascinating project directed by Jacob & Co. to offer a modern interpretation involving traditional watchmaking craftsmanship. Good already excellent skeletonized mobility design of the Epic Back button, the brand has added the ultimate complications of the tourbillon to the Impressive X Tourbillon Baguette this current year. It once again shows it has the DNA with a watch in which combines haute horlogerie together with fine jewelry.
Realization: Every now and then, there are moments that you simply that shine, and when Mister. Jacob Arabo handed us the Epic X Tourbillon Baguette he was wearing, I used to be blown away. While I'm not necessarily usually a fan of gem-set designer watches, there's something about this part that works for me. Maybe it does not take highly detailed skeletonized motion or the tourbillon or the top to bottom aligned balance wheel, however this watch also is the winner me over for its classic horology. The 18-carat white gold or platinum case is surprisingly gentle due to its design, giving this timepiece a sporty feel, yet it’s the 121 baguette-cut diamonds and blue sapphires that are the real draw. This jewelry time has appear and if you're looking for a gem-encrusted watch look no further than Jacob & Co. The Epic X Tourbillon Baguette is this top choice this year.
