Jacob & Co.’s Opera Musical Watch Will Get You Humming
Looking more like a work of art than an actual timepiece, Jacob & Co.‘s newest creation has everything it takes to take your breath away, from a mesmerizing design to a one of a kind movement and.. a musical surprise. Limited to only 18 units, the Jacob & Co. Opera Musical will make your day a lot more exciting thanks to a lovely 20-second melody, that is chimed on 120 notes when the pusher at 2 o’clock is pressed down.
It may sound confusing, but truly passionate people will realize this unique function is pretty close to real magic. The wonderful melody from this ravishing timepiece comes from the two musical-box cylinders on its dial, mounted on the specially developed, hand-wind JCFM02 caliber, that also incorporates titanium components for ideal sound propagation.
The surprises continue with gorgeous 18kt rose gold touches, which contrast beautifully with the black DLC titanium case, that’s 47 mm wide and it’s complemented by a sapphire crystal. This timepiece and its lovely music could even handle 30-meter deep waters, while the in-house caliber JCFM02 will be backed up by 72 hours of power – it just might need them.
Acting as a finishing touch are the matte black varnished dial, with gold-toned applied hour-markers and blued stell hands, although no one can turn their attention away from that marvelous dial – if we can call it that – or music lesson, whatever you prefer. If you’ve ever wanted to wear music around your wrist, this is probably as good as it gets!
