From the infinitely large to the infinitely small, Jacob & Co. dreamed of bringing the mysteries of space to the wrist of devotees of extraordinary mechanisms. After the Tourbillon, Sky and Clarity models, the Astronomia Meteorite Triple Axis Gravitational Tourbillon creates another powerful impact by combining the complexity of its gravitational moment with the dazzling fire of diamonds. And not just any diamonds : 383 triangle-cut diamonds, an extremely rare shape involving a significant loss of material and which the 30-year-old brand has renamed “Architecture cut”. Arranged in a majestic manner giving pride of place to light, the infinite sparkle of the gems accentuates the famous vertical movement of the Astronomia. Beneath the domed sapphire crystal, the gaze is irresistibly drawn to the dance of its four satellites : a triple-axis tourbillon, an hours and minutes dial, a 288-facet Jacob-cut blue sapphire spinning on its axis and, to set the finishing touch to this living tableau, a hand-painted and lacquered magnesium sphere depicting the Earth. A brilliant, stunningly sidereal interpretation.
