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" on the right side of the skeletonized movement, 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 EAGLE ENGRAVING

When he was a young boy, Khabib started out training in Sambo, the traditional Russian form of wrestling. He was also trained by his father in a number of different martial arts. After winning the world championship in Combat Sambo, Khabib transitioned into MMA, where he retired -- never having been beaten (and never even knocked down! - as the UFC Lightweight Champion of the World. His record? 29-0.

Khabib's nickname is "The Eagle," so this moniker is engraved on the inside of the case to honor this incredible fighter

MOVEMENT

Skeletonizing is an age-old tradition in watchmaking. The challenge is to remove enough material from the movement to make it nearly transparent, without impacting its performance, precision, or robustness.

Jacob & Co.'s watchmakers have been skeletonizing movements for decades, so they understand exactly where and how much to remove, and the result is a nearly see-through movement, configured vertically to maximize the beauty of this little engine on the wrist.

The JCAM02 movement has a power reserve of 48 hours and showcases the traditional art of skeletonization.

DIAL AND HANDS

The beauty of skeletonized watches is that there are no dials - instead the highest quality sapphire crystals expose the details of the movement, including the wheels, gears, balance, bridges, and mainspring barrel. The skeletonized hands in the center, indicating the hours and minutes, float over the mechanical splendor. The minute track is in green Neoralithe and the legend "The Eagle" is engraved on the inside of the case.
