Founded in 1986 in New York City, Jacob & Co. celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2016. To mark this milestone of innovation and excellence, the house is launching a Grande Complication watch model with a sporty style that is reflective of the brand’s expertise and youthful vigor.
Debuting for the first time at Baselworld this year, the Twin Turbo combines two triple-axis tourbillons and a minute-repeater. Through a poising system, the tourbillons maintain a consistent rate set at 40 seconds, 3 minutes and 8 minutes per cycle, turning symmetrically at a similar pace. With a deep-sounding and resonating chime, the minute repeater, featuring a cathedral gong, offers a modern approach to striking the hour - doing so every 10 minutes rather than abiding by watchmaking’s traditional 15 minute time frame. A safety system is also in place to prevent it from striking while setting the time.
The transparent case back reveals an abstract architecture of triangles in openwork metal. A symbol of stability, spirituality and determination, this motif, dear to the founder Jacob Arabo, is iconic within the house of Jacob & Co.
