Mystery dials, timepieces where the indicators seem to be floating over the dial, are part of the grand history of watchmaking, going back about 200 years when it was first invented by a clockmaker who was also a practicing magician. Jacob & Co. has brought the mystery back with an innovative, contemporary high watchmaking and high jewelry twist.
The Mystery Tourbillon Arlequino combines high watchmaking, a world first with two linked central, back-to-back triple axis tourbillons, with high jewelry, as the case is invisibly set with baguette multicolored sapphires and the dial is set with hexagonal, overlapping
multicolored sapphires and diamonds. The sophisticated and ground-breaking Mystery was more than one year in development.
