ASTRONOMIA ART

I

Astronomia is about the display of extraordinary, miniature, finely crafted objects. Jacob & Co. has made it a platform to express the entire span of its creativity. Astronomia Art is a collection that gathers all the know-how Jacob & Co. accumulated in watchmaking, high jewelry and artistic crafts. Astronomia Art receives artistic figurines, decors and themes of high symbolic content. Miniature sculptures of animals, real or mythical, of constructions that are emblematic of a country, engraved gold plates, hand-painted miniature scenes or a combination of the above, Astronomia Art is composed of extremely limited series and unique pieces. Their connection is a level of craft, of expression and of symbolism that have zero equivalent in the watchmaking world.

From a creative concept to design inspiration. To the first stroke of a pencil through hundreds of iterations. A timepiece like no other comes to life. Astronomia Art watches elevate high watchmaking with miniature pieces of artistic craft of extreme intricacy.

Installing several types of miniature sculptures required to alter the original Astronomia vertical, rotating caliber. Most of Astronomia Art movements are therefore fixed versions of it. This allows to integrate large, expressive vertical miniatures between its four arms. Its dial is no longer rotating, but off-centered. Its tourbillon does away with one of its axes, thus becoming a double-axis, flying tourbillon. The Earth globe and moon made from a 1 ct, 288-facet, Jacob-cut diamond, remain. The miniature subjects have in common a unique level of complexity and detail. They're hand-made, hand-finished and hand-painted by our specialist craftspeople. Their hands are capable of executing the most delicate, intricate and elaborate of subjects. They give each individual Astronomia Art its unique life.

Hand-crafted miniatures. Vertical movement. Double-axis flying tourbillon. Spinning diamond moon. Spinning earth. Off-centered dial. 60-hour power reserve. 384 components.

Astronomia Art blends artistry and extreme precision. Its artistic calling is accomplished by the non spinning version of the Astronomia movement : exclusive, hand-wound Caliber JCAM25.

The high level of symbolism conveyed by Astronomia Art requires a very specific fit. Whether it be tigers, pandas, horses or even more rare creatures, whether it be skulls or the monuments a country is famous for, each Astronomia Art is an affinity piece. A statement of love. A unique expression of the self.
