EPIC X CHRONO 47MM

Rose Gold (Black Ceramic Bezel)

I

When launching the new Epic X collection in 2016, Jacob & Co. ventured into a new direction, with new shapes, new material and a new frame of mind. The inspiration of the design came from the letter X which symbolizes something unknown, mysterious and appealing which was the energy of the brand at the time. Epic X Chrono 47MM is the high function, high energy, high sports evolution of Epic X. A natural step in the complication and design direction, Epic X Chrono 47MM retains all the core elements of its namesake collection, and takes them all one level higher. A level that the chronograph perfectly represents. The crown guards, the pusher protectors, the X shape that runs from the lugs through the dial, the skeleton parts, the transparency, they embody the transformation of Epic X into a sports chronograph with a deep sense of protection and power. The multi-parts case construction allows a unique diversity of materials, each bringing its own style and energy into the mix. The mineral, colored, translucent dial gives a peek onto its core components. The same material is used on the case back to reveal the winding rotor, with its signature Jacob & Co. shape.

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. Epic X Chrono 47MM is an assertive sports chronograph with infinite variations.

Epic X Chrono 47MM requires a movement that brings all the energy of Epic X and takes it up one notch. Caliber JCAA05 is a self-winding chronograph with two registers, a configuration called bi-compax. The classic movement architecture, with horizontal clutch, column wheel and two pushers is interpreted in a sporty fashion. Along with its chronograph function, Epic X 47MM comes with a rare feature. Its inner ring is not fixed. It rotates on demand thanks to a second crown at 10 o'clock. This allows to create time marks, or a countdown process that adds to the piece's natural complexity. The case is engineered to shield every protruding part. The crown, the pushers, the countdown crown are all inserted in pieces that come out of the case's round shape. This ruggedness is further enhanced by the case's water-resistance to 200 meters.

Caliber JCAA05 is all a chronograph can be. Functional, sturdy, finely finished, it bears the signature design elements of Jacob & Co. and of the Epic X collection.

Depending on the materials used, Epic X 47MM can be a highly sports-oriented chronograph, a summer-themed one, or a purely luxurious one. Versatility lies at the core of a great sports chronograph, and Epic X 47MM has been developed to be just that.
