STORY

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon, often called a "cage," is one of the most dangerous places on Earth. It takes special courage to enter this arena, and something even more special to come out the victor. Khabib Nurmagomedov has emerged triumphant from the Octagon 29 times, and he has never lost.

Jacob & Co. only partners with the best of the best, like Bugatti, Lionel Messi, Supreme and others. We are proud to partner with Khabib, the UFC lightweight champion of the world and widely considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Known as "The Eagle," Khabib worked closely with Jacob & Co. to create four limited edition timepieces.

THE PARTNERSHIP

Jacob & Co. founder and chairman Jacob Arabo is a lover of the fight game and has attended many MMA fights over the years.

"I am a huge fan of Khabib," says Mr. Arabo. "I have been following his career for a long time and when his team approached us about working together to create some limited-edition watches, I was very excited. For me, Khabib is the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet and he fits the brand to a 'T.' In more ways than one, it's Khabib's time."

For Khabib, the partnership makes complete sense. "I'm unlike any other fighter today and Jacob & Co. is the same way, different from every other brand," he says. "We fit perfectly together."

The collaboration features four Epic X timepieces: two Epic X Chrono versions, one Epic X Skeleton, and one Epic X Tourbillon Skeleton.

29-0

Khabib Nurmagomedov has never lost in his career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). As a result, this Epic X timepiece is emblazoned with the legend "29-0" at the 6 o'clock position, which is Khabib's record in the UFC. Now that Khabib has retired, this record will be enshrined in the history of Mixed Martial Arts

THE APPEAL OF THE CHRONOGRAPH

Chronographs are one of the most popular complications in watchmaking and are used in timepieces for both men and women. There is something about the chronograph that captures people's imagination and, as such, this complication is certainly in high demand.

Using a chronograph is easy and fun, and very functional. The chronograph is something you can use to measure the time, not just to read the time. Due to this, you have an interaction with the watch. Interactivity makes things completely different, since you are doing something, not just reading something. By doing this, you cannot control the time, but you are heading in that direction.

Chronographs are very popular because they offer a very accessible complication and one whose standard layout is very attractive.

The Epic X Chrono is purpose-built, so it has a technical, sporty style with the chronograph pushers on the side of the case, the balanced bi-compax dial, and the view into the movement through the mineral crystal dial.

MOVEMENT

The Swiss Made column-wheel chronograph movement is considered the top of the line, as it is sophisticated and very reliable. The automatic movement of the Epic X Chrono is semi-skeletonized, showing off its technical nature via the mineral crystal dial covering it.

Controlled by two pushers (start/stop and reset), the seconds are counted by the central chronograph hand and the minutes are clocked by the right-hand subdial.

Strap

This timepiece comes on a black rubber or Cordura strap, with a titanium and Black PVD deployment clasp

CASE

The 47mm case of the Epic X Chrono has a bold design, creating an "X" shape with the prominent lugs and then running through the case and the architectural structures within the movement.

The case features an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a ceramic bezel and rubber pushers, a screw-down crown and an inner rotating bezel, controlled by the push-down crown at 10 o'clock.

Water resistant to 200 meters, the Epic X Chrono is a true sports watch that makes a strong statement and is designed to take anything and everything you can throw at it.

THE DIAL

The Epic X Chrono has a bi-compax layout, with the right subdial for the chronograph minutes and the left subdial for the running seconds.

Skeletonized hands with Super-LumiNova luminescent tips indicate the time in tandem with a rotating inner timing bezel on the Epic X Chrono, adjusted via the crown at the 10 o'clock position. Fascinating engineering solutions and true dedication to the highest standards of functionality and wearing comfort are reflected in these smallest of details.
