STORY

Recreating a beautiful garden of flowers on your wrist, the Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin will leave you tickled pink. The delicate butterfly flying tourbillon, time display and upper level sapphire kite-shaped flowers all turn around the dial clockwise in ten minutes, while the mother-of-pearl base set with sapphires turns counter-clockwise at the same speed. The 18k rose gold case features a bezel and inner ring set with sapphires, and sitting atop the movement is a 288-facet Jacob cut Tsavorite .

The Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin is a stunning bouquet on your wrist (even the 18K rose gold, butterfly-shaped clasp is set with sapphires).

THE FLEURS DE JARDIN FLYING TOURBILLON

Underlying all this beauty lies the legendary timepiece workmanship for which Jacob & Co. is famous, including the vertical Astronomia double-axis flying tourbillon movement, which makes a full clockwise revolution in 10 minutes around the central axis, while it rotates on itself once every 60 seconds.

CLOCKWISE AND COUNTERCLOCKWISE

The Fleurs de Jardin is comprised of elements above and on the base dial which turn both clockwise and counterclockwise. Above the dial is the flying tourbillon, the time display and a frame holding three gemstone flowers, which turns clockwise in ten minutes. An additional gemstone flower turns counterclockwise while going around the dial in ten minutes as well.

The time display uses a patented Differential Gears System that allows the 12/6 o'clock to remain in the correct position regardless of where it is in the rotation.

On the base dial, the mother-of-pearl (or diamond-set in some versions) middle section set with gemstone flowers, turns counter-clockwise in ten minutes, while the inner gem-set ring turns clockwise in ten minutes.

This constant motion is mesmerizing and ensures that your watch will never look the same throughout the day.

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 Fleurs de Jardin, 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. In fact, Jacob & Co. has even pioneered its own proprietary cut, the 288-facet Jacob-cut - the Fleurs de Jardin features a Jacob-cut gemstone in the very center of the timepiece.

CASE & CRYSTAL

The Fleurs de Jardin is housed a very wearable and comfortable 42.5mm 18K gold case. Anti-reflective sapphire crystals cover the front, back and sides of the watch, while gemstones adorn the bezel and the inner case ring.

DIAL & HANDS

The hour and minute dial of the Fleurs de Jardin is made of rose gold PVD titanium and mother-of-pearl, with Roman numeral hours. As this dial is constantly turning, the time display always stays in the correct 12/6 position thanks to an ingenious patented differential system. The hands indicating the time are rose gold-plated.
