EPIC X SKELETON

I

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 Skeleton is the combination of a staple of watchmaking, the skeleton watch, and the radical design approach of Jacob & Co. As a result, Epic X Skeleton bridges the inside and the outside, the movement and the 44-mm case. The X shape starts at the lugs, goes on to the movement's vertical bridges and finishes on the other pair of lugs. Transparency, structure, innovation, three of Jacob & Co.'s design guidelines are gathered in Epic X Skeleton.

From a creative concept to design inspiration. To the first stroke of a pencil through hundreds of iterations. A timepiece like no other comes to life. Geometry and freedom. Structure and invention. Sporty and openworked. Epic X Skeleton is opposites coming together.

Epic X Skeleton is a case and a movement coming together as one. Designing Epic X Skeleton required a different frame of mind, where everything is ruled by the X, while letting the light in. The four lugs on Epic X Skeleton are unique. Their shape, their inclination, their edges are a true Epic X Skeleton 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.

Skeleton movement. Vertically-aligned structure. 158 components. 48-hour power reserve.

Epic X Skeleton 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 Skeleton is light, on the eye and on the wrist. It is Jacob & Co.'s quintessential sports luxury timepiece. Worn on an everyday basis, it makes for a perfect daily companion. The assertive design, the hollowed-out movement, the play on colors, the versatility make Epic X Skeleton a highly diverse collection.
