EPIC X CHRONO ROSE GOLD GREEN DIAL

Story

Taking the bold Epic X design several steps further, Jacob & Co. has created the Epic X Chrono, a 47mm sporty watch that is sporty, striking and supremely attractive.

Featuring a semi-skeletonized movement, visible through the colored mineral crystal dial, the Epic X Chrono features a high-end column-wheel chronograph movement with a bi-compax design.

Available in a variety of materials and colors, the Epic X Chrono is Jacob & Co.'s sportiest watch.

EXCLUSIVE CHRONOGRAPH CALIBER

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 through smoked 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. 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.

THE APPEAL OF THE CHRONOGRAPH

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 certainly in high demand.

Using a chronograph is easy and fun, and very functional. The chronograph is something you can use to measure the time, not just to read the time. Due to this, you have an interaction with the watch. Interactivity makes things completely different, since you are doing something, not just reading something. By doing this, you cannot control the time, but you are heading in that direction.

Chronographs are very popular because they offer a very accessible complication and one whose standard layout is very attractive.

The Epic X Chrono is purpose-built, so it has a technical, sporty style with the chronograph pushers on the side of the case, the balanced bi-compax dial, and the view into the movement through the mineral crystal dial.

MOVEMENT

The Swiss Made column-wheel chronograph movement is considered the top of the line, as it is sophisticated and very reliable. The automatic movement of the Epic X Chrono is semi-skeletonized, showing off its technical nature via the mineral crystal dial covering it.

Controlled by two pushers (start/stop and reset), the seconds are counted by the central chronograph hand and the minutes are clocked by the right-hand subdial.

CASE

The 47mm case of the Epic X Chrono has a bold design, creating an "X" shape with the prominent lugs and then running through the case and the architectural structures within the movement.

The case features an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a ceramic bezel and rubber pushers, a screw-down crown and an inner rotating bezel, controlled by the push-down crown at 10 o'clock.

Water resistant to 200 meters, the Epic X Chrono is a true sports watch that makes a strong statement and is designed to take anything and everything you can throw at it.

Dial & Hands

The tinted mineral crystal dial of the Epic X Chrono reveals the dial side of the beautifully constructed JCAA05 self-winding chronograph caliber. In the top left portion of the dial, the balance wheel is revealed, while at the 6 o'clock position the openworked mainspring barrel and its fully wound mainspring can be seen, keeping the Epic X Chrono powered up and running on time. "Jacob & Co Genève" marks the dark tinted, partially transparent crystal dial of the Epic X Chrono, 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 in tandem with a rotating inner timing bezel on the Epic X Chrono, adjusted via the crown at the 10 o'clock position. Fascinating engineering solutions and true dedication to the highest standards of functionality and wearing comfort are reflected in these smallest of details.
