Mystery watches, timepieces where the time indications seem to be floating over the dial, are part of the grand history of watchmaking, going back more than 100 years. It should come as no surprise high watchmaking and diamond jewelry house Jacob & Co. has brought the mystery concept back with a contemporary, unique signature twist.
The Mystery Tourbillon Black Spinel by Jacob & Co features a unique accomplishment in watchmaking, the only timepiece with two linked, central, back-to-back triple axis tourbillons. These Siamese twins of high accuracy are intertwined in a high jewelry accomplishment of the highest magnitude. The 50-mm, 18K black gold case is invisibly set with baguette, hexagonal black spinels and the dial is set with hexagonal, "overlapping" black spinels. The sophisticated and ground-breaking Mystery is unique in a great many ways.
