Tribute to India – Astronomia Art
Earlier last year, Jacob & Co. unveiled a striking timepiece called Astronomia Art India. The luxury watch was a tribute to India, celebrating its culture and majesty. Four hand-engraved and hand-painted buildings grace the dial of the double-axis tourbillon movement of the unique piece Astronomia Art India. They include the Taj Mahal, the Lotus Temple, the India Gate, and the Qutub Minar.
The four buildings were hand-engraved and hand-painted by traditional métiers d’art artisans. The buildings were then set into an aventurine glass base that resembles a starry sky. Additionally, the dial also features the signature Jacob-cut diamond and a magnesium globe made of blue-lacquered magnesium that rotates on itself every 60 seconds.
