Epic X Producer Michael

STORY

The Epic X is a watch collection defined by its unmistakable design, contemporary style and high-end watchmaking solutions. Every Epic X is a bold combination of traditional and high-tech materials, exclusive and highly refined calibers, and an aesthetic that is immediately recognizable as well as versatile. From sporty and rugged to precious and elegant, every Epic X is as striking as it is multifaceted.

The Epic X Producer Michael has the same iconic X-shaped lugs and dial appliqués, and skeletonized movement that the Epic X is known for. However, this limited-edition watch also includes details that are associated with Michael Blakey, the Grammy-nominated record producer, drummer, composer, arranger and songwriter. He's more famous on social media as "producermichael," where he shares his life experiences as a self-made success to inspire and motivate others.

Blakey created this timepiece with his good friend, Jacob Arabo, the founder of Jacob & Co. It has many details associated with Blakey, including a rainbow-colored bezel, drum sticks for hands, his personal logo and his signature on the sapphire crystal caseback.

The cordura strap allows for ventilation and flows seamlessly into the lugs to create a sublimely comfortable fit around the wrist for a watch designed and created to be worn throughout the day.

SKELETONIZED MOVEMENT

Skeletonizing is an age-old tradition in watchmaking. The challenge is to remove enough material from the
movement to make it nearly transparent, without impacting its performance, precision, or robustness.

Jacob & Co.'s watchmakers have been skeletonizing movements for decades, so they understand exactly where and how much to remove, and the result is a nearly see-through movement, configured vertically to maximize the beauty of this little engine on the wrist.

CASE & CRYSTAL

The 44mm case (available in titanium, black PVD titanium or rose gold) of the Epic X Producer Michael Limited Edition is crafted in the distinctive "X" shape. The manual wind movement is on display through the antireflective sapphire crystals front and back. On the caseback is Michael Blakey's signature.

DIAL & HANDS

The beauty of the Epic X Producer Michael Limited Edition skeletonized watch is that the sapphire crystals expose the details of the movement, including the wheels, gears, balance, bridges, and mainspring barrel.

The rainbow-colored inner ring of the dial reflects the colorful clothes worn by Michael Blakey. The material for the inner ring is made of Neoralithe, which enhances its depth. The hands on the watch are designed as drumsticks, which is Blakey's signature instrument.
