Epic X Chrono 44mm Rose Gold and Black

a watch on a person's wrist


The Epic X is a collection defined by its unmistakable design, contemporary style and high-end watchmaking solutions. Every Epic X is a statement-piece: a bold combination of traditional and high-tech materials, exclusive and highly refined calibers, and a truly Epic aesthetic that is immediately recognizable and yet remarkably versatile. From sporty and rugged to precious and elegant, every Epic X is as striking as it is multifaceted.

Defined by the iconic X-shaped lugs and dial appliqués, the Epic X Chrono 44MM features integrated design-, and engineering solutions for ultimate comfort, functionality and style. Its complex case is full of details, lending it its unique aesthetic and inimitable feel. The smoked mineral crystal dial and case-back allow for a peek into the Exclusive JCAA05 chronograph caliber and its finished details. The open-worked rubber straps allow for ventilation and flow seamlessly into the lugs and case-band, all to create a comfortable fit on the wrist.

Following up on the enduring appeal of the 47-mm versions, Jacob & Co. went on to create a 44-mm Epic X Chrono subcollection. This alternative case size opens up the Epic X Chrono to a new crowd, seduced by Jacob & Co.'s unique design features in a universally wearable, definitely unisex format.

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 in ever higher demand at Jacob & Co.

Using a chronograph is easy and fun, and very functional. The chronograph is something one can use to measure the time, not just to read the time. It offers unique interaction with the watch. Interactivity allows the creation of a special, tactile relationship with a timepiece.

The Epic X Chrono 44MM is purpose-built, so it has a technical, sporty style. It features two pushers on the side of the case, a balanced bi-compax dial, a pair of crown-guards on the left-side of the case for ultimate design balance and a view into the movement through both the crystal dial and sapphire caseback.

The exclusive Jacob & Co JCAA05 caliber is partially revealed both on the dial, as well as the case-back side of the Epic X Chrono 44MM through tainted crystals. The 260-component caliber offers a combination of highly refined movement decorations on the bridges, self-winding rotor, mainspring barrel, and column wheel.

The column-wheel controls the functioning of the chronograph mechanism inside the Epic X Chrono 44MM. Start, stop and reset are all governed by this beautifully hand-finished component: angled, polished and drawn, and fully on show on the case-back side of the JCAA05. Sitting over the exclusive JCAA05 caliber is the anthracite oscillating rotor for the automatic winding of the movement, with red lacquered Jacob & Co Genève engraving. Further decorations include beveled and polished edges on the bridges, perlage circular graining, as well as the open-worked construction of the mainspring barrel, all beautifully executed.

Bold design meets precious and high-end materials to create the immediately recognizable aesthetic of the Epic X, a watch exterior that is like no other. The Epic X Chrono 44MM case is 44-mm wide and 14-mm thick, and is water resistant to a depth of 200 meters, a true testament to the complexity of the design, as well as its highly engineered and equally robust architecture.

This Rose Gold and Black Epic X Chrono 44mm has a black ceramic bezel. The crowns are wrapped, adding distinctive dashes of color and a superior tactile experience. The front and the case-back are covered by anti-reflective sapphire crystals for a characteristic Epic X look.

The black-tinted mineral crystal dial of the Epic X Chrono 44MM reveals the dial side of the JCAA05 self-winding chronograph caliber. Several key components of the calibre are therefore visible, increasing the technical side of an already appealing design. "Jacob & Co. Genève" marks the dark-tinted, partially transparent crystal dial of the Epic X Chrono 44MM, flanked by the beautifully crafted X-shaped dial elements, exclusive to the Epic X collection.

Skeletonized hands with Super-LumiNova luminescent tips indicate the time and bâton-shaped ones are dedicated to the chronograph timing indication. Fascinating engineering solutions, true dedication to the highest standards of functionality and wearing comfort are reflected in these smallest of details.
