PALATIAL CLASSIC

Rose Gold (Onyx Black) Bracelet

I

Palatial Big Date is the one Jacob & Co. collection that pays a clear tribute to watchmaking classics. The elegant 42-mm case is elevated by its lug design, curved and gracious, which turns Palatial Big Date into an everyday-wear timepiece. The choice of a slim case of contained dimensions goes hand in hand with a sense of symmetry : the large date balances the power reserve indicator at 6 o'clock. Palatial Big Date is further elevated by a wide selection of dials, chosen among the most lavish and refined materials made available by nature : hard stones. Blue Lapis Lazuli, green Malachite and black Onyx offer their unique patterns and sheen to the polished allure of this collection.

From a creative concept to design inspiration. To the first stroke of a pencil through hundreds of iterations. A timepiece like no other comes to life. Palatial Classic Big Date is Jacob & Co.'s expression of elegant fine watchmaking.

Caliber JCAM52 is in a class of its own in the Jacob & Co. catalog. The large date and power reserve indication are sitting on top of a finely executed movement, chosen for its reliability. Developed in a hand-wound version, it does away with self-winding in order to shave off a precious few millimeters. This slimness is reflected in the overall design of Palatial Classic Big Date. Under the sapphire glass, the hard stone dials of Palatial Classic Big Date are a delicate ornament. Selection of the Malachite, Onyx and Lapis Lazuli blocks only retains the very best ones, with the most intense colors and zero defect. Cutting them into slabs of extreme thinness and piercing them to receive the dial's hour markers and complication fixtures requires a special and rare know-how.

Onyx, or Malachite, or Lapis Lazuli dial. Large date with double disc at 12 o'clock. Power reserve indicator at 6 o'clock. Self winding movement. 173 components. 48-hour power reserve.

Caliber JCAM52 offers a classic combination of complications, aiming at being both symmetrical and effectively useful on a daily basis. Readability, availability and thoroughness of information are the very basics of watchmaking, the same ones that have inspired Palatial Classic Big Date.
