Hands-on Jacob & Co. Epic X Titanium: Does it have an X-factor?

Jacob & Co. proposes an everyday luxury cheap watch with a skeletonized dial and sporty personality.

No diamonds, no double triple-axis tourbillon or ready-made complications, the Epic X collection is Jacob & Co.’s answer to the everyday men’s watch. The ultra-modern Epic X Titanium watch features an ultra-bold and completely original 44m grade 5 titanium case and features a hand-wound skeleton movement that displays the hours and minutes. The overall impression is one of transparency and airiness, offering a special vision of movement.

performance as an art form
Jacob & Co. cheap watches are unequivocal. The brand’s world is about performance and prosperity, and statement pieces that are bigger than life: bigger, louder, and more complex, the better. And in this category of ultra-luxury lifestyle watches, Jacob & Co. is unrivaled. The recently launched Twin Turbo Furious model is packed with so many exciting complications that it almost levitates. Or the stunning Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity timepiece, with its 3D octopus wrapping his tentacles on a three-axis tourbillon and spinning planets, or the Opera Godfather watch with a music box that plays the notes of a movie-themed music? (See below for the brand’s wildest creations)

So, what does Jacob & Co. offer men more suitable for everyday life? The Epic X series seems to fit the bill, and while it’s hard to describe it as a sports watch, it definitely exudes a sporty spirit. Designed by watchmaker Benjamin Muller, this Epic X watch draws design cues from Muller’s original Spyder collection before he was hired by Jacob & Co.

Uniquely shaped titanium case
The case of this Epic X model is made from grade 5 titanium in a variety of finishes, a lightweight metal that combines strength and corrosion resistance. The unique X pattern of the Epic X series extends from four points on the bezel to the lugs. Personally, the X looks more like the armored legs of an insect straddling a box, but that’s probably the octopus’s spell that worked for me. It looks confident, modern and masculine no matter how you look at it.

To suit this type of watch, the case and X-shaped lugs are satin-finished and polished. With a generous 44mm diameter and a case height of 12.3mm, the case offers a wide field of motion – however, it’s still surprisingly comfortable to wear on the wrist.

transparent mechanism
The skeletonized dial of the Epic X Black Titanium is an example of the modern art of key skeletonization with impressive transparency. The transparency and openness of this dial allows you to enjoy the different parts of the hand-wound movement. Consisting of 158 parts, the action on the dial takes place in the central and left areas, where the vertically aligned barrel and balance wheel first come into view. To hold the movable structure in place, the sandblasted upper bridge—actually an extension of the lugs—straddles the movement vertically and is hollowed out to ensure maximum viewing pleasure. On the right side of the bridge there is a plaque engraved with the series name, while the brand name is placed in a cutout at the top of the barrel at 12 o’clock.

Made exclusively for Jacob & Co. by Concepto, a respected movement manufacturer, the hand-wound skeleton movement (JCAM02) beats at 28,800 beats per hour and has a 48-hour power reserve. The back of the watch reveals a black bridge, and the back of the watch is engraved with the name of the watch and its creator, Benjamin Muller. Overall, the finishing and decoration of this movement is impressive, with finely grained bridges, beveled and polished angles and rubies set in sparkling rhinestones. very happy!

Another distinguishing feature of the Epic X is its original honeycomb rubber strap. Featuring a dynamic arrangement of hexagonal perforations, the strap is designed to echo the openwork pattern of the dial while providing wearer comfort. The strap is secured by a titanium pin buckle.

Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti “La Montre Noire”

I’m not sure about the others, but if I were driving Bugatti’s incredible “La Voiture Noire”, that unique supercar worth over 11 million euros, I doubt I’d be paying too much attention to my wrist. But for those who think custom watches and supercars go hand in hand, allow us to introduce the jaw-dropping Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti “La Montre Noire”.

Considering the ridiculous car I just mentioned and the exclusivity that comes with it, I doubt you’d expect to see something ordinary. For that kind of car, or a watch to match the world’s most expensive supercar, you’d need something outrageous, to say the least. And the name of Jacob & Co. Quickly came to mind.

The brilliant team behind Jacob & Co. is known for their unique timepieces, always trying to create stunning timepieces – the “La Montre Noire” is just the latest addition to their impressive roster.

Do you remember the Bugatti Chiron tourbillon? That watch was inspired by the massive 16-cylinder engine that powered the Bugatti Chiron.

But this new timekeeping wonder is back in the past, and the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe cannot be ignored. The only black version disappeared around 1940, when Bugatti decided to hide it with other cars to keep it safe during World War II.

Known as “La Voiture Noire”, chassis number. 57453 has since disappeared and the car is estimated to be worth around $100 million – would you look for it? The one-off Bugatti for 2019 pays homage to the redesigned Chiron, but doesn’t hint at where the original car is. super replica watches

But let’s focus on what’s in front of us right now. Jacob & Co. created a unique piece based on the blacked-out Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe. Equipped with two three-axis tourbillon regulators and a decimal minute repeater, the new watch exhibits an overall alien aesthetic.

The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti “La Montre Noire” also features a 57mm 18k black gold case set with 344 baguette-cut black sapphires. The black Cordura strap features a PVD ​​titanium clasp with a black gold buckle and 18 baguette-cut black sapphires, and if you’re lucky enough to get it, it will be worn on your wrist.

Jacob & Co.’s visual luxury continues inside, where “La Montre Noire” benefits from an ultra-complex mechanism composed of 832 tiny components. Since it was inspired by an iconic supercar, the watch also features a chronograph. The stopwatch mechanism actually incorporates a primitive “reference time” indicator.

The dial also has a small opening at 6 o’clock to indicate the reference time in minutes and seconds – which can be set via the crown. Additionally, the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire features an impressive decimal repeater.

Finally, let’s talk about power – that’s usually a common topic when we’re talking about supercars, right? Well, thanks to an ingenious planetary system, the needle points to the full power reserve to the left, then moves to the right as the 48-hour backup power runs out.

By now, you should expect what’s coming next – the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire is a unique piece. But where is that car? jacob & co astronomia replica

Jacob & Co: the mechanical watch masterpiece on the wrist of the top rich that shocked the jaw

The Astronomia Everest watch was made for explorer and environmental activist Johan Ernst Nilson. In addition to the constantly “rotating” and “revolution” celestial galaxies and tourbillons, the watch is specially embedded with miniature transparent buckets containing real water, which Nilson collected at the South and North Pole. When you turn the watch, you can see the water sloshing in the bucket, clearly marked “North Pole” and “South Pole”.

In fact, there are even smaller and smaller groups of people.

Everyone knows that there is a watch brand that can be bought by the rich second generation, with an average price of one or two million. Why is it expensive? Because of its cool movement, outstanding design and strong sense of movement. There was once a jewelry brand that launched a colorful watch with a price of more than 50 million US dollars at a certain annual watch exhibition. Treasure, its movement is just a small negligible quartz movement, and the greatest value is the accumulation of countless unique colorful treasures on the case.

If time, machinery, complications, art, music… wishes, feelings, emotions can be realized and condensed on a mechanical watch, it is a great thing and a meaningful work, and it is worth a lot of money to have.

However, there is another extremely niche and high-end watch brand in the world: first of all, you may not have heard of it, because it is only accessible to a few tenths of the “tenth of a few” that we mentioned earlier. The brand that I have and I own, its masterpieces of watches that make us stunned and stunned, all have unrestrained machinery and imagination. At the same time, because this brand was born in the production of luxury jewelry, its wrist watch Watches, while mechanically complex, creatively extravagant and unimaginable, are also an astonishing operation in rare jewelry design and jewelry setting.

The beautiful universes and solar systems we once imagined as children, our dreams, all kinds of hard-to-reach worlds, are brought to our wrists…and live, real and time-synchronized.

All the unimaginable and complex mechanical structures and devices are realized by it and presented in the space of the replica watches online.

Compete for “engine”, speed and unrivaled coolness with the fastest and coolest sports cars in the world.

Fascinating mechanical fetish: the mysterious three-axis tourbillon. A fascinating mechanical fetish, actually in the arms of a dazzling diamond…

The romantic Hundred Gardens, through complex mechanical functions and dazzling jewels, are extremely gorgeously presented on the wrist. Vivid cinematic stories, deep emotions, and thoughts are presented on the wrist through complex mechanical functions and music boxes. A splendid, unimaginable, complex mechanical jewelry watch that everyone can’t refuse. The domineering golden dragon hovers above his wrist.

All of its jaw-dropping and unpredictable mechanical & jewelry masterpieces will make your jaw drop when you see it for the first time…envy, adore, and covet. But the most dazzling things must have the most “dazzling” pricing.

This brand is from the United States. It set up its base in Geneva, Switzerland, almost 10 years ago, and made crazy watches with top professional watchmaking teams. Regal brand: Jacob & Co. Jack Bao.

In fact, in 2006, Jack Bao had shocked the watchmaking industry with a 31-day ultra-long power mechanical watch named “Quenttin”. Later, it was more famous for its long-power Lange’s 31-day long power mechanical watch. Not yet born. It’s just that Jack Bao was unknown at the time, and he made a record-breaking stuff, but it didn’t make any waves.

“I’m bored with making mass-market jewellery” decides the same: I’m even more bored with making mass-market fine watches… And professional watchmaking must never be far from the centre of fine watchmaking. Arabo decided in 2012 to open its watch business headquarters in Geneva, and in 2014 launched the Astronomia collection. This series shocked the world as soon as it was launched, and caused a flurry of gulls in the haute horlogerie industry…

I still remember the first time in late 2014 or 2015, the first time I saw a small video of the Jackpot Astronomia watch, wow! trench! I also have no professional and appropriate adjectives, only such a simple exclamation. As a watch person who likes different things, I am deeply attracted. I just want to see and touch the real thing as soon as possible, and can’t wait. What attracts me is not only the “trenches” of the Jake Bao celestial body series, but also its unrestrained creativity, pure and naive fantasy world (galaxies, universe, music, ideals…), bold design, conceivable Knowing the difficulty of production and unparalleled mechanical sense.

Although Jack & Bao’s charming watches are rare in kind, on the Internet, Jack & Bao has skyrocketed overnight. In addition to the already shocking celestial body series, Arabo’s creative ideas flowed out of control, he opened a door, and all kinds of exaggerated and surprising watches were produced.

Arabo, an American entrepreneur, skilled craftsman and creative master of extraordinary mechanical watches and jewelry, has created ASTRONOMIA celestial body series, TWIN TURBO double tourbillon series, BRILLIANT halo series, THE MYSTERY mysterious time series for Jake Bao in just a few years , EPIC series, OPERA opera series, OIL PUMP oil pump series, FLEURS DE JARDIN hundred garden series, BILLIONAIRE billionaire series, PALATIAL series and more than a dozen series of watches. In terms of complex functions, the tourbillon is regarded as a standard configuration, while the minute repeater, chronograph, tourbillon, hollow, action couple and other complex functions and devices often keep pace with the size of the watch.

Leaving aside the dazzling celestial body series that are launched every year with peculiar new products, the latest Twin Turbo Furious series and Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon sapphire crystal version of the latest collaboration with Bugatti are simply subverting us. Imagining the scale of top luxury watches and mechanical watches.

Especially the full sapphire crystal model of the Bugatti Chiron cooperation model, the whole watch is a Bugatti Chiron that is stunned by the situation on the wrist! The most amazing thing is that when you press a button under the case that is similar to the start button on a sports car, the “engine” mechanical part of the central area of ​​the watch dial, like the 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbo engine of the Bugatti Chiron, will be connected with the watch. The engine of a sports car is turning fast and rhythmically! Even people who drive sports cars rarely see what the engine tells the speeding! At the same time, the tourbillon, which is inclined 30 degrees at 12 o’clock, is also continuously rotating and timing at the speed of 60 seconds. This watch is so cool to wear on the wrist. As for showing off, who can compare with it? No one.

Minute repeater of the Twin Turbo Furious Fast and Furious Double Tourbillon series watch, this one is full of jewels, two three-axis tourbillons rotate side by side, can repeat the time at the same time, and have a special winding crown like a hand-cranking machine. Hao watch, although my wrist is a bit big, but I can’t restrain me from strongly recommending it to those who are full of momentum and have enough wrist size. It’s so cool and arrogant. It truly confirms the existence of Jack & Bao’s identity as a masterpiece of machinery & jewelry on the wrist of the top rich.

Among the relatively “people-friendly” Jack & Treasure watches, the most recommended is the Epic series hollow watch. The price is not high, but from the production details to the design, it fully conforms to Jack & Treasure’s sense of luxury. It is also very mechanical, which is relatively easy A good value for money Jack & co watch.

Jacob & Co. x Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon

There are countless car-themed watches, entire watch brands built around the connection between motorsport and timekeeping, and the most recognizable names in the horology world can be seen as sponsors of motorsport and motorsports events around the world. But while some watchmakers will simply add stripes to the dial or rally strap of a decades-old coronameter Bugatti, Jacob & Co. takes “automotive inspiration” to the next level.

The watch’s marketing materials talk about recreating the visceral feel of the Bugatti W16 in a timepiece, but the problem is that traditional watch movements can’t capture the energy and power of such a high-performance car. So instead of creating a movement that represents Bugatti’s elegance and engineering, they decided to produce what may be the most complicated car brand watch ever built, a functional replica of Bugatti’s 16-cylinder engine, complete with working pistons and a rotating mechanism. Turbocharger.

Push the right-hand crown of the clock and the engine kicks in—the crankshaft turns and the pistons pump up and down, just like a real internal combustion engine. When the engine is running, two “turbochargers” (four in an actual Chiron engine) on the sides of the engine block spin. Consisting of 578 components, the movement is a complication of the highest level for the development team.Jacob & Co Bugatti Chiron

Aside from the animation inside, the case is designed to capture the shape of the Chiron, including the iconic Bugatti grille and side scoops, and the movement is even suspended by micro coil springs. The watch itself is rather flashy, but once you see it in motion, the beauty of the engineering shines through.

Strap/Bracelet: Rubber with titanium folding clasp

Jacob & Co. x Bugatti Chiron Orange Sapphire Crystal Timepiece

Bugatti and Jacob & Co luxury signed a partnership in 2019, and we’ve seen luxurious, exclusive and never-before-seen timepieces that celebrate beautiful timepieces and performance supercars. After a year of development, the two companies have recreated the visual style and feel of the legendary Bugatti 16-cylinder engine.

As the latest development in the partnership, Bugatti and Jacob & Co have launched the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon Orange Sapphire Crystal watch. Aside from the imitation engine, the case follows the smooth lines of the Chiron and places it under a large orange sapphire crystal to celebrate the car and jeweler.

In the Chiron Tourbillon Orange Sapphire, the engine is started by 16 pistons when the right crown is pressed. The two simulated turbos on the side of the “engine” also spin for great visuals.

Along with a total of 578 moving parts, the engine includes a car-like suspension, left, center, and right crowns to set the time, wind the movement and animation, and animate the engine separately.

With a 60-hour power reserve, like a car’s fuel tank, the watch is housed in a 41.7 x 36 mm orange sapphire case that takes 120 hours to reach maximum transparency and polish. fake watches price

Stand out in the summer sun with Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium

Jacobs & Co. is now a brand that stands out for craftsmanship, extraordinary craftsmanship, and more. Each Jacob & Co. factory can be compared to a work of art, lifelike and colorful.

On the other hand, every Jacob & Co watch. When presented, they brought very clear praise/criticism. They tend to follow an unconventional aesthetic, and traditional elements are less recognized at Jacob & Co. Musicians can find the minute repeater mechanism in the sapphire caseback, a watch that plays the deep tunes of The Godfather. Or maybe the movement of the engine block of the Bugatti Chiron supercar is also featured in Jacob & Co’s home timer.

However, Jacob & Co.’s Epic X isn’t as complicated as an Astronomia, Twins Turbo or Bugatti Chiron watch. It’s suitable for everyday wear and subtly showcases your outstanding personality. That’s exactly what we’re talking about on Jacob & Co.’s Epic X watch. Released last March.

Jacobs & Co. was looking forward to a high-end sports watch that combined two of the most popular watches on the market, a chronograph and a diver’s watch. More than that, models with attractive charcoal blue titanium cases, white sports models like the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon also include a flying tourbillon cage that moves non-stop across the dial.

Movement in pastel colors: charcoal green combined with white
As the name suggests, the watches in the Epic X series will be distributed in various parts with the letter X as a decorative pattern. Probably the dial, the lugs are all diagonal complements.

The current case of the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon in the blue titanium version is finished with a charcoal green PVD method, which produces a strong brushed texture. The 47mm case size combined with the white rubber strap makes it clear that the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium is not a compact watch that cannot be hidden in the cuff when worn on the hand. To compensate for the size of the case, the lugs of the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon will cross and have a steeper slope, ensuring the high quality watches replica hugs the wrist more tightly.

Chronograph x diver’s watch
As mentioned earlier, the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon has a chronograph function but is still ready to dive into the sea with divers, so the watch has quite a few buttons and a crown. On the right are white ceramic chronograph pushers with red markings and a white ceramic crown.

A second ceramic crown at 10 o’clock starts an internal minute countdown timer for deep dives. But it seems Jacob & Co. forgot to add lume to the white minute counter, so the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium actually barely works if it’s deep under the sea, even though it’s waterproof to 200m.

Surrounded by a wide bezel and sloping minute counters, the dial of the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium, made of mineral glass, is translucent blue so we can see below through the movement’s gears. The thick vertical bars depicting the stylized X on the dial are also blue to match the outer titanium case.

The chronograph function of the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium is represented by two well-balanced sub-dials and a tourbillon cage below. The dial at 9 o’clock will point to minutes and seconds, while the dial at 3 o’clock will point to 30 minutes. The hottest colors on the dial come from the large hands and the central chronograph seconds. The combination of blue-red-white makes the Epic X Chrono Tourbillon Blue Titanium feel like a supercar that won’t tire of any track.

Inside the swiss movement replica watches, the JCAA09 movement also has an X pattern, and the charcoal gray watch rotor is hollowed out and engraved with the words Jacob & Co. Geneva is red.
