Story

A universal sign of hope, rainbows have been a theme in jewelry for many years. Jacob & Co. introduces a rainbow version of its ground-breaking Fleurs de Jardin Rainbow, with a special, full baguette-cut diamond back dial. Designed to recreate a beautiful garden of multi-colored flowers on your wrist, framed by several sparkling rainbows, this timepiece is powered by a delicate butterfly tourbillon movement. It definitely is no garden variety timepiece.

The tourbillon, time display and upper level multicolored sapphire flowers all turn around the dial clockwise, while the mother-of-pearl base set with rainbow sapphire flowers turns counter-clockwise. The 18K white gold case features a bezel and inner ring set with rainbow sapphires. Sitting atop the movement is a 288-facet Jacob-cut tsavorite surrounded by rainbow-colored sapphire petals.

THE FLEURS DE JARDIN FLYING TOURBILLON

Underlying all this beauty is the timepiece workmanship for which Jacob & Co. is famous. In this case, it materialzes as a version of the vertical Astronomia flying tourbillon movement, which makes a full clockwise revolution in 10 minutes around the central axis. It also features a patented differential gears system that allows the time display to constantly maintain the 12/6 o'clock position.

According to legend, treasure is found at the end of the rainbow, but with the new Fleurs de Jardin Rainbow from Jacob & Co., you need look no further than your wrist.

CLOCKWISE AND COUNTERCLOCKWISE

Fleurs de Jardin Rainbow is comprised of elements above and on the base dial which turn both clockwise and counterclockwise. Above the dial is the flying tourbillon, the time display and a frame holding three gemstone flowers, which turn clockwise in ten minutes. An additional gemstone flower turns counterclockwise while going around the dial in ten minutes as well. The time display uses a patented differential gears system that allows the time display to constantly maintain the 12/6 o'clock position.

On the base dial, the middle section is made of mother-of-pearl carrying 5 rainbow sapphire flowers, and surrounded by two rings of more rainbow sapphires, one on the inside and another on the outside. It turns counter-clockwise in ten minutes, while the inner gem-set ring turns clockwise in ten minutes. This constant motion is mesmerizing and ensures that your watch will never look the same throughout the day.
