ASTRONOMIA METAVERSO

Mercury

Celestial bodies and space exploration have long driven Jacob Arabo's creativity. In 2014, he translated his intimate passion into an ambitious timepiece concept. Astronomia is an unheard-of translation of astrophysics into watchmaking form. Jacob & Co. takes that inspiration to the planetary level with the 8 pieces of the Astronomia Metaverso collection. Each one is a graphic, high watchmaking and high jewelry tribute to the 8 planets in our solar system. A tribute that is both physical and digital since 5 Astronomia Metaverso exist in both worlds and the 3 furthest away from the sun, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, only in digital form in the Metaverse. Which came first ? The digital Astronomia Metaverso NFT ? Or the palpable, 44-mm Astronomia Metaverso ? Like two intricate faces of a single reality, the collection was executed in both realms at the same time, with the same intention : designing a graphic and horological interpretation of all eight planets orbiting the sun as a watch.

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 Metaverso interprets each planet in our solar system as a high jewelry, high complication timepiece.

The physical movement of Astronomia Metaverso is a fixed version of the Astronomia Solar movement, since rotation is impossible due to the presence of the dome. Caliber JCAM42 is made of 296 components and incorporates a flying tourbillon, an off-centered hour and minute dial and a rotating gemstone, representing the version's namesake planet. The digital side of Astronomia Metaverso required a similarly exacting sense of precision as a physical design. Creating Astronomia Metaverso NFT required unique digital craftsmanship. It took hundred of hours of work between our digital designers and Jacob Arabo. A qualitative rendering of gemstones, the most exacting details and true-life textures demanded a next-level work of digital engineering.

Vertical movement. Flying tourbillon. Spinning gem-made, 288-facet, Jacob-cut planet. Off-centered dial. 48-hour power reserve. 296 components.

Astronomia Metaverso is where astrophysics meet artistry, where watchmaking blends with imagination. A fixed version of the Astronomia movement takes place under a special piece of craft and narrative, the dome, that's specific to each model in the series.

Astronomia Metaverso is dedicated to astronomy lovers, watch lovers, high jewelry lovers and also, to dreamers. It's a tribute to space as a driving force for imagination and Jacob & Co.'s creativity.
