Jacob and Co
Five Time Zone – 40 mm 2.0ct
Jacob and Co was opened in 1986, by Jacob Arabo, a talented jewelry designer. Jacob grew up in Russia, migrated to the US and at the age of 16, started developing his natural talents. Designing unique pieces in New York’s Diamond District for a number of jewelry labels, and private clients, he decided to break out on his own. By the 1990’s he was designing for many up-and-coming artists, music industry icons, and entertainment stars. Creating a buzz in the industry, one that continues today, Jacob and Co became an icon for fashion jewelry and watches. Revolutionizing the market for men’s and women’s jewelry, he wanted to create a signature style that reflected Jacob and Co in the fine timepiece category, and the Five Time Zone Collection was born.
Bold primary colors, multiple time zone technology, and inspiration for his designs found in his fast-paced, international lifestyle clients, a exclusive and elegant collection was created. The watches attract men and women, they are a true unisex line. The two-and-three time zone style was useful and attractive, and has pushed him further into other new creations, like the automatic chronograph. Expanding rapidly and globally, Jacob and Co, this watch became a true phenomenon.
Traditional Five Time Zone styles include easily interchangeable (screw-on) solid steal or 18kt yellow gold bezel or bezel set, with approximately 2.00 carats of VS quality diamonds. Dials that feature black with solid color time zones; pastel colors with diamond accents; white mother of pearl with black and silver accents; yellow gold Guilloche dial with yellow gold Guilloche-finished time zones, where each sub-dial has a different Guilloche finish; and yes there are even more.
The Five Time Zone Collection features Polyurethane straps, each with a steel deployment buckle, with colors in red, blue, yellow and black. There are leather straps, alligator straps, and all crated with quality, elegance, and sophistication. The watch has Five Time Zones driven by five independent high-quality battery operated Swiss movements, and the local time is indicated by the large display, and Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Tokyo are displayed in the bold colorful sub-dials.
Designing time pieces that featured diamond and non-diamond designs allowed for a collection that could appeal to both sexes, as well as allow for expansion in the use of multi metals, and bold color selections, as well as the softer ones that have been added. This Jacob and Co reflects creativity and a versatile collection that is great for any occasion.
Jacob and Co introduced the Five Time Zone Collection to meet the needs of clients, but also designed the collection to be eye catching, and engineered to perform with precision and reliability. The only problem with this collection, it is so hard to choose a favorite, so you will probably have to have more than one.
