BRILLIANT TOURBILLON ART DECO

Pink Sapphire

I

In 2017, Jacob & Co. created a new ladies' collection that looked like no other. Round, without lugs, with a strap directly attached to the case, Brilliant was designed to be versatile, precious and to embrace the entire range of gems Jacob & Co. loves. Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco is the most lavish expression of its high jewelry spirit, combined with high watchmaking expertise. Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco contains a movement designed like an architectural creation, drawn directly from the Art Deco period. Geometry, symmetry and clean lines make for a skeleton tourbillon movement of unique appearance. Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco is entirely covered in gems. Jacob & Co. exclusively selected the baguette cut. In order to recreate the smoothest surface, Jacob & Co. only works with the invisible setting technique. No prongs, no metal appears that would break the continuous array of gems.

Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco is a work of both high jewelry and high watchmaking. It requires a movement that's as exclusive as its appearance. Caliber JCAM05 has been developed to give Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco this dual nature. The tourbillon movement is a skeleton designed along strictly horizontal lines. These elegant beams are entirely set with gems matching the case. It is one of a small handful of timepieces available today with such features. The rounded case of Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco is a three-dimensional creation. Shaped like a pebble, it possesses a great ergonomy and offers the best canvas for the kind of creativity Jacob & Co. is famous for. The rounded edges of the case provide Brilliant with its namesake property: brilliance. When its metal stands alone, thorough polishing gives it light and life. When our gem-setters get a hold of it, it becomes a large field of expression of their expertise. Achieving such an impeccable result requires an extensive development process. It starts at the selection of gems, goes on with their cutting, and ends in the setting itself. At each one of those steps, Jacob & Co.'s expertise is mobilized at its finest. For Jacob & Co., work is at its best when the work doesn't show.

Caliber JCAM05 is a hand-wound, hour and minute movement regulated by a one-minute tourbillon. The movement's bridges on the dial side are entirely pavé-set with gems matching the case. Setting components as critical, thin and narrow as skeleton bridges is a technical achievement only the most skilled gem-setters can achieve.

Brilliant Tourbillon Art Deco instantly achieves elegance, refinement and ultimate luxury. Its gem-set movement, its aerial skeleton structure, the hundreds of invisibly-set baguette-cut gems surrounding them are a pinnacle of high jewelry and high watchmaking.
