Astronomia Art UAE


When the Astronomia Tourbillon was introduced in 2014, the re-invention of the tourbillon in a vertical orientation and the constant turning of its four satellites garnered most of the attention.

What led to the development of the Astronomia Art Collection, however, is the incredible sapphire crystal and precious metal case, which puts everything inside on display.

Soon arose the idea to develop special works of art to put inside the Astronomia Tourbillon, using its sapphire crystal and precious metal case as a gallery, while still showcasing the incredible Astronomia tourbillon movement. The brand started with dragons, octopi, spiders, horses and more. Incredibly successful, Jacob & Co. has expanded the Astronomia Tourbillon Art Collection every year since. Now comes the Astronomia Art United Arab Emirates.

The UAE are one of the most spectacular emergence stories. The growth and development of the seven federated, united, interdependent Emirates never cesases to amaze, thanks in part to an ambitious and daring architectural program. Four hand-engraved and hand-painted buildings grace the dial of the double-axis tourbillon movement in a static version, making the one-off Astronomia Art United Arab Emirates.


The tourbillon is widely considered the ultimate complication, as it spins to counter the negative effects of gravity on the precision of the movement. For the Astronomia Collection, Jacob & Co. has taken the tourbillon one step farther, introducing additional axes in which the tourbillon turns.

For the Astronomia Art United Arab Emirates, the tourbillon is a double-axis one. It spins on one axis in 60 seconds and on the second in 5 minutes.


Customization and bespoke work has been the foundation of Jacob & Co. since the beginning and continues to this day. The brand has created a number of Astronomia Art pieces - Dragons, Spiders, Octopi, Horses, Tigers, world cities and more. Visit any Jacob & Co. point of sale or contact the brand directly to inquire.

The Astronomia Art Collection has become an icon within the brand and collectors look to Jacob & Co. to see what's coming next. The Astronomia Art is a showcase of Jacob & Co.'s commitment to using traditional métiers d'art with a contemporary approach.


Jacob & Co. has been on the forefront of using precious stones since its founding in 1986, and has developed a number of special cuts and setting techniques. For the Astronomia Tourbillon, the brand developed the 288-facet Jacob-cut diamond.

This special cut can be accomplished by only a select few gem cutters, and the rough stone typically starts out double the size of the finished diamond. The facets have to be incredibly precise so the diamond is perfectly symmetrical and round. In the Astronomia Art United Arab Emirates, the one-carat Jacob-cut diamond rotates on itself in 60 seconds.


The globe representing the earth is made of blue-lacquered magnesium to ensure consistency in weight, as all four satellites have to weight exactly the same. The globe rotates on itself in 60 seconds.


The Astronomia Art United Arab Emirates's case measures 50 millimeters in diameter and 25 millimeters thick. It blends the polished beauty of 18k rose gold and the incredible advantages of a transparent crystal. Crafted from a sold block of sapphire, it allows for unhindered viewing of the spectacular caliber and the artwork inside.


The Roman numerals on the skeletonized dial are hand-engraved and filled with black lacquer, while the hand-finished hands appear in gun blue metallic coating.
