Brilliant Flying Tourbillon Arlequino Pastel White Dial

Story

On the outside this timepiece is a thing of beauty with a dial and bezel covered with exceptional colored gems. On the inside the piece is powered by technically superior mechanics.

The Brilliant Flying Tourbillon Arlequino Pastel features a 47mm 18k white gold case paved with sparkling multi-colored sapphires in a harlequin pattern expertly sourced and set by an in-house artisan. Standing out among the colorful façade is a tourbillon, a mechanical marvel that provides both form and function. The mechanics are powered by a movement that provides the same technical prowess and performance as their male counterparts.

This timepiece, like others in the Brilliant Collection, shows Jacob & Co.'s breadth of technical and artistic skills in high watchmaking and high jewelry.

Flying Tourbillon Movement

The tourbillon is designed to increase the accuracy of a watch movement by negating the effects of gravity. It is also one of the more aesthetically pleasing complications on a dial. This version of the Brilliant Flying Tourbillon represents the 226-year-old invention in a more spectacular way.

The one-minute flying tourbillon features a delicately finished open-worked cage in 18k rose with the "Jacob&Co" name on the upper bridge. The cage encapsulates the balance wheel, hairspring, escape wheel and other important components. It is secured from underneath, allowing for an unobstructed and full view of the ultimate refinement of its detailing and operation. It's a constellation of superbly finished components that, when assembled and fine-tuned, allows the JCBM01a movement to keep accurate time throughout its 48-hour power reserve.


Gem Setting

Jacob & Co. is one of the few luxury brands that has the skills to create high and fine jewelry, as well as high-end watches. The luxury brand also has expertise in the setting of these stones, working with highly skilled gem setters, among the best in the industry.

Through years of building close relationships with trusted dealers, Jacob & Co. has access to exceptional diamonds and colored gems from all over the world. Many of the gem-set timepieces require meticulous care in the choosing of stones for quality, cut, clarity, and matching color. This can take many months or years, depending on the exact colors needed.

This attention to detail can be seen with the Brilliant Flying Tourbillon Arlequino Pastel. The dial, bezel and 18k white gold 47mm case are paved with 170 baguette-shaped, invisibly set multicolored sapphires (19.96 carats). The gems are set in a harlequin pattern on the dial and bezel. In addition, the crown is set with baguette-shaped multicolored sapphires with one cabochon sapphire on top. Sourcing the colored gems took four months and then an expert artisan spent another month setting them into the proper pattern.
