Jacob & Co. has entered into a partnership with Paramount Pictures and acquired the rights to The Godfather. Jacob & Co. has gained access to the name, imagery, narrative and music from the iconic motion picture. These have become the inspiration for the ultimate movie tribute timepiece.


Opera Godfather is a tribute piece and a music playing timepiece. The 49-mm case contains visual, symbolic and graphic elements directly taken from the movie. A miniature sculpture of Don Vito Corleone sitting on his chair. The puppeteer strings from the movie poster. A piano and a violin-shaped crank as a reference to the ubiquitous Nino Rota soundtrack, whose main theme the music box plays on demand. The Godfather was the first movie Jacob Arabo saw in a movie theater after coming to the U.S.A. The Godfather is not just a watchmaking achievement. It is a deeply personal creation, a uniquely entertaining timepiece and a thrilling concept.

From a creative partnership to design inspiration. From the first stroke of a pencil through hundreds of iterations. A timepiece like no other comes to life. Shaped like an open scene, Opera Godfather is about theatrics, and meaning.


Caliber JCFM04 is a movement like no other. It combines high watchmaking and The Godfather's actual music. Made of a total of 658 components, the movement rotates as it plays the movie's famous main theme. Two sets of combs and blades play the notes of that 30-second tune, which resonate far outside the case. Caliber JCFM04 also includes a triple-axis, flying tourbillon. This extremely rare complication is made even more special as it rotates along with the rest of the movement when the on-demand melody is activated. Such a set of complications and structure are entirely unique.

658 components. Music box playing 30-second The Godfather theme with rotating movement. Triple-axis flying tourbillon. Godfather-inspired decor. 50-hour power reserve.


The 654-component Opera Godfather movement is built on top of a rotating base. It tells time with an off-centered rotating dial. It features a flying, high speed, triple-axis tourbillon. This contemporary complication is mastered only by the most qualified movement constructors and watchmakers.


Opera Godfather is dedicated to the namesake motion picture, its actors, its authors and fans. It's also a statement piece, showing what luxury watchmaking becomes when freed from conventions and limitations.
