Rasputin Tourbillon Full Baguette White Diamonds

Story

The Rasputin Tourbillon is a watch with secrets and concealed debauchery. To reveal its secrets, however, one must first break through the 47.6mm 18k white gold case that is composed entirely of baguette diamonds. A diamond-paved slider at 9 o'clock operates the minute repeater function of the JCAM27 manually wound movement. As the minute repeater chimes two swans in the upper half of the dial peck at a heart. At the same time, the lower half of the watch that had been hand engraved with a motif resembling curtains opens to expose a hand-painted erotic scene that lies beneath.

EROTIC AUTOMATON

Erotic scenes in watches date from the 17th century. Watchmakers started with painted versions, then added automatons that moved and acted out these scenes. Many of the watches had them brazenly on the dial side, while others had them hidden on the caseback.

With the Rasputin, you have the best of both worlds, with the erotic automaton hidden by a curtain that opens to reveal the scene, while the minute repeater chimes out the time.

On the surface, the Rasputin looks like a high-quality, diamond-set timepiece. Only you know the secret that can be revealed with the push of a lever.

MOVEMENT

The JCAM27 manual winding movement powers the one-minute tourbillon visible through
the case back. An additional complication of the Rasputin is a minute repeater,
with the hours and minutes chimed by Jaquemart swans framing a heart-shaped
ruby. When the minute repeater is actuated, curtains at 6 o'clock open to
reveal an automaton erotic scene.

Rasputin Box

The spectacular box for the Jacob & Co. Rasputin Tourbillon hints at what is inside with the erotic sculptures around the outside, protected from the elements by octagonal anti-reflective glass. The box itself is made of black-lacquered natural wood coated with brilliant sheen, while the sculptures themselves are red-lacquered wood covered with a bright nickel-finish. The box is hand-crafted in France, and features a document holder frame.
