The Astronomia is the epitome of 21st century ultra-high-end watchmaking and a globally recognized symbol of Jacob & Co watchmaking expertise. A world-first both in the boldness of its unprecedented concept and its entirely mechanical construction, the Astronomia has gone beyond impressive horological achievements and has been regarded as an outstanding multidisciplinary engineering achievement.
The Astronomia Meteorite connects Astronomia with its extraterrestrial inspirations as much as with Jacob & Co's unique gem-setting know-how. It is a cinematic sculpture animated by its four-arm movement construction that rotates and floats through the sapphire and diamond-bound space inside its spectacular case. A grand total of 383 triangle-cut white diamonds adorn the case, lugs and dial, as though this piece unique Astronomia has transformed throughout its travels in space, like a meteorite that has turned into a precious diamond as it entered our planet's atmosphere.
Full of unparalleled watchmaking solutions and adorned with exceptional finishing techniques, the Astronomia Meteorite has earned its reputation as an inimitable icon in the field of haute horlogerie.
