Black Titanium

I

Social media sensation Producer Michael, aka Michael Blakey, began his career as a drum player, then became a music producer, music label founder and manager. He worked in the music, TV and cinema industry before setting up a 2.4 M. follower social media-based business. He is an avid watch collector and a longtime admirer and wearer of Jacob & Co. timepieces. So much so that Jacob & Co. engaged in a partnership with him and created the Epic X Producer Michael collection.

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 Producer Michael is a sleek and sophisticated evolution of that original design. Epic X Producer Michael is a family within Epic X. It uses the cases of both Epic X Skeleton and Epic X Bridges and a highly openworked movement. The unique design elements of the collection are a rainbow colored inner ring, a pair of drumstrick-shaped hands, the man's signature on the inner side of the movement's bridges and caseback.

Epic X Producer Michael is based on both version of Epic X : Skeleton and Bridges. Both are a case and a movement coming together as one. Designing Epic X required a different frame of mind, where everything is ruled by the X, while letting the light in. The four lugs on Epic X Producer Michael are unique. Their shape, their inclination, their edges are a true Epic X Producer Michael signature. They are a continuation of the exclusive skeleton movement. It is structured around two vertical bridges and the framing of a vast amount of void.

Epic X Producer Michael is ruled by design and so is caliber JCAM45. Functionally, it is an hour and minute movement. In spirit, its skeleton structure follows the X rule. It is light, technical and revolves entirely around its shape.

Epic X Producer Michael is a flamboyant tribute to a flamboyant character. Using the versatility of Epic X Bridges and Epic X Skeleton, it showcases signature elements of Michael Blakey's brand identity that add a splash of color and detail.
