ASTRONOMIA DRAGON

Green Dragon & Tiger II

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 Dragon is a subcollection of its own standing. It gathers all the know-how Jacob & Co. accumulated in watchmaking, high jewelry and artistic crafts and applies it to Jacob & Co.'s most emblematic, striking and powerful creature : the dragon. Mythical and very much alive, positive and mighty, the dragon is by far the most revered creature in the watchmaking playbook. Jacob & Co. has been manufacturing dragon-themed timepieces for the last decade, without interruption, always at the highest level of craft, symbolism and exclusivity. Astronomia Dragon features a majestic, three-dimensional, expressive and ominous wingless dragon inspired by the Asian tradition. The rose gold sculpture has been the focus of several timepieces, all of which are unique pieces. The dragon is either left in its natural, solid gold state, or hand-painted. The entire creature is highly expressive and changes as iterations go. One thing remains, how the open mouth, the potent claws, the coiled body and the detailed scales all spell out excellence in craft.

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 Dragon is impressive and expressive, highly detailed and very elaborate.

Installing a miniature dragon sculpture required altering the original Astronomia vertical, rotating caliber. The movement in Astronomia Dragon is a fixed version of it. This allows to integrate this large, expressive, vertical creature between its four arms. The dragon sculpture reaches a rare level of complexity and detail. The dragon itself is coiled and wrapped around the Astronomia movement. It's crafted out of solid rose gold, 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 Dragon its unique life.

Hand-crafted, 3D, rose gold dragon sculpture. Vertical movement. Double-axis flying tourbillon. Spinning diamond moon. Spinning earth. Off-centered dial. 60-hour power reserve. 384 components.

Astronomia Dragon is a symbol. Of craft. Of refinement. Of exclusivity. And of every positive value associated with this majestic creature. Wearing a Jacob & Co. dragon-themed unique piece is like a talisman, a fetish of the utmost luxury.
