If your goal is to slip through the day unnoticed, the new Epic X Chrono Messi Full Baguette is definitely NOT for you.
This is the second year that Jacob & Co. has partnered with footballer Lionel Messi on an exclusive collection of limited-edition timepieces. The GOAT is a trend-setter, especially when it comes to watches, and this new unique piece is quite the stunner.
The current collection includes a titanium Epic X Chrono Messi, one model in rose gold, and a white gold and baguette version. Now, this unique piece raises the bar, with just about every available surface set with precious stones.
The 47mm 18K white gold case and lugs are set with total of 141 carats of Baguette Diamonds, with the crowns set with single round diamonds. Even the blue mineral crystal dial is adorned with diamonds, rubies, and sapphires, while the clasp of the open-worked rubber or alligator strap is also set with baguette diamonds.
The diamonds, rubies, and sapphires put this piece in rarified company, as the expert Jacob & Co. diamond-setters are unequaled in the watch and jewelry industry. This is a tour de force of the gem-setting art, as the precious stones complement rather than overwhelm the bold X-shaped style of the Epic X Chrono. The structure of the unique white gold case can still be appreciated, making a statement on your wrist.
