Story

Brian De Palma's Scarface from Universal Pictures had an incredible impact on entire generations of people all around the world.

Memorable lines from the film like "Say hello to my little friend!" "Who put this thing together? Me, that's who! Who do I trust? Me!" "I always tell the truth. Even when I lie" and "Say hello to my little friend!" are etched in our collective social consciousness.

To honor this seminal movie, Jacob & Co. has expanded the Opera collection to include the Opera Scarface, playing "Bolivia" from the movie on the integrated music box. Jacob & Co. worked with Universal Brand Development to create this unforgettable timepiece.

THE SCARFACE PARTNERSHIP

For the first time ever, NBC/Universal has partnered with a watch company, agreeing to license the music from the film and the Scarface logo. The brand is now in negotiations with NBC/Universal for other iconic movie scores for future projects.

TRIPLE-AXIS TOURBILLON

Powering this timepiece is Jacob & Co.'s signature triple-axis tourbillon movement, wound by the 18K rose gold violin-shaped crank on the side of the watch. Comprised of 658 individual parts, the movement is ultra-complex, with a tourbillon that turns in 24 seconds on one axis, eight seconds on the second axis, and 72 seconds on the third. The power reserve for the movement and the music box function are separate -- the watch has a power reserve of 42 hours, while the music can be played three times before you have to wind it again.

The Opera Scarface comes in two versions, 18K rose gold and black DLC titanium. Each version is limited to 88 pieces.

THE SWISS MUSIC BOX

Just a press of the pusher at 10 o'clock and the 120-note music box plays this memorable music, while the entire dial rotates 120 degrees under the domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The time display always stays in the correct 12/6 position thanks to an ingenious, and patented, differential system.

Also on the dial is an 18K gold, black-lacquered piano, whose keys move while the "Bolivia" music plays, and, prominently displayed on the dial in 18K gold, is the Scarface logo name plate.

Sitting in the middle of the movement is the 18K rose gold "The World is Yours" globe, taken straight from the entrance hall of Tony Montana's Miami mansion.

SCARFACE PLAQUE

A special 18K gold plaque displaying the film's famous poster image, featuring a stylized image of Al Pacino as Tony Montana and the Scarface logo, is prominently placed on the dial. When the music plays, the entire dial turns.

PIANO

Integrated as part of the music box, the keys of the 18K gold, black lacquered piano contact the pins of the cylinder, producing the music. Because of this, the keys of the piano seem to be moving while the music is playing.

THE WORLD IS YOURS GLOBE

In the center of the Opera Scarface timepiece is a miniature, 18K hand-engraved and hand-painted globe, with the famous phrase "The World is Yours" in relief. This globe appeared in the entry way of Tony Montana's Miami mansion.

DIAL & HANDS

Time is displayed on a matte black sub-dial with a linear design executed in highly polished gold. Hours and minutes are indicated by a set of blue finished hands. Thanks to ingenious engineering solutions working silently inside the JCFM04 caliber, although the entire platform of the Opera Scarface rotates during the operation of the musical box complication, the time display sub-dial nevertheless always remains upright.
