ASTRONOMIA CASINO

I

Astronomia Casino takes the original Astronomia Concept to a new dimension : the roulette dimension. The base of the Astronomia platform is entirely overhauled and receives a fully functional game of roulette. The base itself is a series of 37 pockets, numbered 1 to 36 in black and red lacquer, and the famed green zero. The top of the carousel takes on the shape of a roulette turret with its four spokes. The white ceramic ball flies inside the roulette as the impressively fast mechanism is activated by its pusher. The complication is both a mechanical and a design achievement coming together as one flamboyant and unique feature.

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. Underneath the rotating Astronomia platform, a full roulette table with 37 pockets and a white ball emulate a wrist-sized casino.

Creating a miniature game of roulette required going beyond all preconceptions, innovating and breaking barriers. Caliber JCAM36 is one of the most advanced and complex movements in the Jacob & Co. catalog. Caliber JCAM36 is a three-dimensional movement with a central, vertical axis. It carries four arms. All of them rotate on their individual axis, and around the central axis. A double-axis tourbillon, a diamond moon, an Earth globe, a rotating dial, its complications take on the form of planetary bodies. The roulette module is located in the movement base. It spins the wheel-head fast, freely and for an impressively long time. The white ball bounces long and randomly enough to make Astronomia Casino a true portable game of chance.

One full movement rotation in 10 minutes. Roulette table animation. Double-axis flying tourbillon. Spinning diamond moon. Orbital dial. 60-hour power reserve. 390 components.

Caliber JCAM36 builds on the original Astronomia movement. It spins faster and uses a double-axis flying tourbillon instead of the triple-axis one. Removing that third axis saves enough height to fit in the roulette table complication.

High rollers, gamblers and chance-takers will recognize Astronomia Casino as the timepiece designed and meant for them. Elaborate in design and functionality, it's also a watch that has literally no equivalent, as are so many Jacob & Co. timepieces.
