STORY

Sparkling.

Jaw-dropping.

Stunning.

These words describe the Brilliant Collection from Jacob & Co. perfectly. Due to these attributes, this is a modern, beautiful watch for all the important moments of a woman's life, a showcase of Jacob & Co.'s high jewelry, gem sourcing, gem-setting and high-watchmaking expertise in a lady's timepiece.

For too long, women who wanted a mechanical timepiece have had to choose from restyled men's watches. Jacob & Co. developed the Brilliant collection for the woman who wants something beautiful to adorn her wrist and appreciates high-watchmaking movements.

GEM SETTING

Jacob & Co. is one of the few brands that has the legitimacy to create high and fine jewelry, as well as high-end watches.

The diamond and gemstones industry is a closed society, and it is really a relationship business. Sourcing the very best diamonds and gemstones depends on reputation and personal connections, and thankfully Jacob & Co. has solid, decades-long relationships.

As a result, Jacob & Co. has access to the very best sources of diamonds and gemstones from all over the world. Many of the gem-set timepieces, like the Brilliant Art Deco Skeleton Tourbillon pieces, require meticulous care in the choosing of stones for quality, cut, clarity, and matching color. This can take many months or years, depending on the exact colors needed.

Jacob & Co. is also an expert in the setting of these stones, working with the very best gem setters in the industry.

THE TOURBILLON

The tourbillon was originally invented to be a single-axis, rotating cage secured from above as well as below to carry the regulating organ of a mechanical pocket watch for improved timekeeping performance. The version in the Brilliant Flying Tourbillon presents this more than 225-year-old invention in a yet more spectacular way.

The one-minute tourbillon features a delicately decorated cage that encapsulates the balance wheel, hairspring, escape wheel and a number of other crucially important components. This open-worked cage not only features an elaborate web-pattern in its architecture, but also sapphire plates and gem-set bridges, allowing for an unobstructed and full view at the ultimate refinement of its detailing and operation. It is a constellation of superbly finished components that, when assembled and fine-tuned expertly, allows the JCAA03 movement to keep accurate time throughout its 72-hour power reserve.

CASE & CRYSTAL

The 44mm 18K gold cases, inner bezels, and crowns of the Brilliant Skeleton Collection are invisibly-set with baguette-cut precious stones (the crown has a rose-cut gemstone on the top). Covering the front and back of the timepieces are anti-reflective sapphire crystals, putting the beautifully skeletonized movements on full display.

DIAL & HANDS

The beauty of skeletonized watches is that there are no dials - instead the highest quality sapphire crystals expose the details of the movement, including the wheels, gears, balance, bridges, and mainspring barrel. The leaf-shaped hands in the center, indicating the hours and minutes, float over the mechanical splendor.
