Epic X Chrono Black Titanium

Story

Taking the bold Epic X design several steps further, Jacob & Co. has created the Epic X Chrono, a 47mm sporty watch that is sporty, striking and supremely attractive.

Featuring a semi-skeletonized movement, visible through the colored mineral crystal dial, the Epic X Chrono features a high-end column-wheel chronograph movement with a bi-compax design.

Available in a variety of materials and colors, the Epic X Chrono is Jacob & Co.'s sportiest watch.

THE APPEAL OF THE CHRONOGRAPH

Chronographs are one of the most popular complications in watchmaking and are used in timepieces for both men and women. There is something about the chronograph that captures people's imagination and, as such, this complication is certainly in high demand.

Using a chronograph is easy and fun, and very functional. The chronograph is something you can use to measure the time, not just to read the time. Due to this, you have an interaction with the watch. Interactivity makes things completely different, since you are doing something, not just reading something. By doing this, you cannot control the time, but you are heading in that direction.

Chronographs are very popular because they offer a very accessible complication and one whose standard layout is very attractive.

The Epic X Chrono is purpose-built, so it has a technical, sporty style with the chronograph pushers on the side of the case, the balanced bi-compax dial, and the view into the movement through the mineral crystal dial.

MOVEMENT

The Swiss Made column-wheel chronograph movement is considered the top of the line, as it is sophisticated and very reliable. The automatic movement of the Epic X Chrono is semi-skeletonized, showing off its technical nature via the mineral crystal dial covering it.

Controlled by two pushers (start/stop and reset), the seconds are counted by the central chronograph hand and the minutes are clocked by the right-hand subdial.

CASE

The 47mm case of the Epic X Chrono has a bold design, creating an "X" shape with the prominent lugs and then running through the case and the architectural structures within the movement.

The case features an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a ceramic bezel and rubber pushers, a screw-down crown and an inner rotating bezel, controlled by the push-down crown at 10 o'clock.

Water resistant to 200 meters, the Epic X Chrono is a true sports watch that makes a strong statement and is designed to take anything and everything you can throw at it.
