Looking for a unique timepiece that combines exquisite Swiss craftsmanship and horological brilliance of decoration, then choose the Jacob and Co. Astronomia Solar Watch. The timepiece allows the visual of each element as it is constantly in motion, all beating from the oscillator at the heart of the three-axis tourbillon, displaying the celestial world and the orbital display of hours and minutes. This brand is known for some of the more striking and bold timepieces on the market, as well as some of the priciest.
Over 170 years ago in Glasheutte, watchmakers settled in, bringing their passion and expertise to develop the art and the Glashutte Original Senator Moon Phase Skeletonized Edition Watch is just one of the results of that creativity. This design features quite a display of hand-engraving to what would be considered an otherwise conservative timepiece. The showcasing of the updated Calibre 49-18 movement allows one to see the engineering first hand and also embraces the artwork side of the design. From the filigree artwork on the dial that is protected by a non-reflective sapphire crystal, to the similar crystal case back, the wearer can visibly enjoy the hand-wound mechanism.
Square watches have not always been popular with men, but around the 1920’s things started to change. Pocket watches were replaced with wristwatches for men and the design of the square shaped case was born, mainly to accommodate the leather strap, but also as a fashion statement. Bringing that same style and statement back with an elegant retro look, Frederique Constant and the Classics Carree Automatic Watch exemplifies the brand philosophy and sophistication.
