Luxury watches are no longer just talking about time. A good example is the Astronomer Casino.
Astronomer Casino has a fully operable miniature roulette under the sapphire crystal dome cover of the watch. The watch’s roulette is composed of green, red and black enamel, with mahogany inlays, activated by a button at 8 o’clock (also winds the movement).
This extraordinary timepiece is the latest in the iconic astronomy watch series of Jacob & Co., which can be carried out by Jacob & Co. craftsmen inserting mother-of-pearl into the lucky number of the owner personalise.
There has never been a complex timepiece as grand as it is now, with a rotatable roulette wheel, so that car owners can play their favorite game of chance at any time. Although Astronomia Casino is easy to use and use, the technical solution that actually makes it work seamlessly took more than a year of development time.
The core of the Astronomy Casino is excellent clockwork, and Jacob & Co. is famous for it. The dual-axis tourbillon offsets the influence of gravity on the moving parts of the movement. The tourbillon cage rotates in 60 seconds and completes its rotation in 2.5 minutes, while the entire tourbillon rotates around the center axis of the watch within 10 minutes. In a circle. Both the 1 carat 288-faceted JacobCut® diamond and the blue globe coated with magnesium alloy can spin on its own within 30 seconds, travel with the tourbillon, and display the time around the dial within 10 minutes. Jacob & Co.’s patented differential gear system allows the time display to remain at 12/6 o’clock no matter where it is rotated.
Astronomia casino watches, for those few who choose, they are a perfect timepiece, they do not survive by luck, but control their luck and control their own destiny.
