STORY

The Caviar Flying Tourbillon Arlequino embodies Jacob & Co.'s drive to stop at nothing in its quest to create masterpieces of incomparable beauty. Jacob & Co. is one of the few companies in the entire industry that has the legitimacy and true expertise to combine high jewelry and high watchmaking.

In the Caviar Flying Tourbillon Collection, Jacob & Co., as both watchmaker and jeweler, combines these two worlds with effortless ease, giving birth to luxurious, priceless timepieces.

This veritable work of watchmaking art features a sophisticated flying tourbillon movement with a stunning case and dial adorned with white diamonds and multi-colored sapphires in colors inspired by the rich, lustrous translucence of the finest caviar. The precious gemstones are invisibly set after an arduous and lengthy process to source and select the perfect stones to match each other in color and cut.

FLYING TOURBILLON MOVEMENT

Until the creation of the exclusive JCBM05 caliber, no movement could have hoped to keep pace with the intense brilliance of the Caviar's exterior. Matching the intricate gem-setting with the beautiful complication of a one-minute flying tourbillon, the JCBM05 has bridges specifically designed to be able to accommodate gem setting.

The tourbillon was designed to offset the effect of gravity on a watch movement. The tourbillon used in the Caviar is the flying variety, meaning that it is supported on only one side, which is far more difficult than a traditional tourbillon. The tourbillon has long been considered the king of complications, with its spinning and turning movement. Only the best companies can accomplish this feat of high watchmaking.

The hand-wound caliber, which may be further admired through a sapphire crystal caseback, with its plates adorned with white diamonds, complements its one-minute flying tourbillon with a titanium balance, anti-shock system and 100-hour power reserve. Composed of 169 parts, the movement drives a two-hand dial display at a frequency of 21,600vph.

GEM SETTING

Having started out as a jewelry company, Jacob & Co. has been working in the gemstone trade for more than thirty years. As a result, the brand's gem experts know where to find the best gemstones.

With unique pieces like the Caviar Flying Tourbillon Arlequino, matching the stones is incredibly important. It can take up to three years to find the right stones, with exactly the right matching colors.

When it comes to setting, Jacob & Co. works with the very best in the world. The diamonds and sapphires in this timepiece are invisibly set, side by side, which hides the metalwork underneath. The diamonds and sapphires are set into the gold from underneath, making the surface smooth and the stones appear to be floating. The result is mesmerizing and magical.

CASE & CRYSTAL

The 47mm 18K gold case, dial, and lugs are invisibly set with the highest-quality diamonds and multi-colored sapphires. Anti-reflective sapphire crystals cover the watch, front and back, protecting the mechanism and the gemstones, while putting everything on display. The flying tourbillon is visible in an aperture at six o'clock, and the white diamond-set rear of the manual winding movement is visible through the sapphire crystal exhibition case back.

The Jacob & Co. Caviar Flying Tourbillon Arlequino is a tour de force in both high jewelry and high watchmaking, taking both to an extreme never seen before.

DIAL AND HANDS

The dial of the Caviar Flying Tourbillon Arlequino is completely invisibly-set with 138 white diamonds and multi-colored sapphires. Extremely challenging to perfect, the invisible setting shows no supporting metal between the stones, making the stones seem bigger.

The skeletonized hands seem to float over the gem-set dial.
