Luxury watches no longer just tell the time. A case in point is the Astronomia Casino by renowned watch and diamond jewelry brand Jacob & Co., which features a fully operational micro-roulette wheel beneath the watch's sapphire crystal top case. Presented in a spectacular array of green, red and black enamel and inlaid with mahogany, the Roulette at Astronomia Casino is activated by a pusher at 8 o'clock (which is also the power reserve of the animation).
This extraordinary timepiece is the latest in Jacob & Co.'s collection of astronomy-themed timepieces and can be personalized with a mother-of-pearl inlay placed by Jacob & Co. artisans on the owner's lucky number.
Exclusive two-axis tourbillon movement Originally invented as a single-axis rotating cage to carry the regulating mechanism of a mechanical pocket replica watches priceto improve timekeeping performance, the astronomical tourbillon takes this 224-year-old invention to a stunning level of modern sophistication and sophistication.
Astronomia Casino's dual-axis tourbillon is at the forefront of modern watchmaking. The beautifully decorated cage of the flying tourbillon encloses the balance, hairspring, escape wheel and many other vital components. This outstanding tourbillon features a skeletonized cage that rotates on two axes simultaneously. It's a constellation of well-built components that have been expertly assembled and fine-tuned to allow the JCAM10 to keep accurate time during its 60-hour power reserve.
The first rotation of the first axis takes only 60 seconds, a tribute to the traditional single-axis tourbillon. The 10-minute four-arm rotating platform of the astronomical tourbillon enables the second axis of rotation. Designed with cutting-edge, ultra-modern technology and timeless horological traditions in mind, this gives us a bold new take on the function of the tourbillon.replica luxury watches
Roulette table animation Never before has there been a large complication timepiece with a rotatable roulette wheel, allowing owners to play their favorite game of chance whenever they want. While Astronomia Casino is easy to use and enjoy, the technical solution to actually make it work seamlessly took over a year of development.
Separated from the movement by a sapphire crystal, the ceramic ball can bounce at will without affecting the function of the timepiece.
288 facets Jacob cut diamond The Jacob-Cut diamond started out as a larger rough diamond. First, a rough diamond large enough must be found, and its purity, clarity and color must be of the highest quality inside and out, without inclusions. If they start cutting the diamond and find inclusions, the whole diamond will be destroyed.
Next, the diamond is machine cut into a round shape that is close to the final diamond in size.
The gem cutter then shapes the gem by hand, cutting each individual facet (288 in total). This must be done slowly and carefully, as the stone must be perfectly round and symmetrical. The danger is that the stone will turn into a rectangle instead of a circle. To be used in the Astronomical Collection, the Jacob-cut diamond must be perfectly round and weigh exactly the same as the other three satellites (time display, three-axis tourbillon, magnesium ball).replica Patek Philippe Nautilus watches
During this process, if the gem cutter applies a little more pressure when adding the facets, too much diamond will be cut off, and the final ball will be smaller than the desired diameter. The cutting process requires at least two weeks of dedicated, hard work.
To make the final 288 faceted 1 ct Jacob cut diamond, more than half of the original rough diamond will be cut away.
The complexity of hand-cutting 288 facets and ensuring everything is symmetrical and the diamond is absolutely round is what makes the Jacob & Co. diamonds used in the Astronomia collection so special.

Magnesium ball The globe is made of blue-painted magnesium with rose gold continents to ensure consistent weight, as all four satellites must be exactly the same weight. The Earth rotates on its axis in 30 seconds and orbits the dial in 10 minutes.
Case and crystal The Astronomia Casino's case is 47mm in diameter and 24mm thick, and sits between the highest point of its special domed sapphire crystal and the lowest point of the case. Crafted in 18K rose gold, the case is surrounded by four sapphire crystal windows, allowing you to admire the spectacular double-axis tourbillon movement and the roulette wheel in action.
Dial and hands The Astronomia Casino's time display sub-dial is driven by an extremely small differential system, which always remains in the correct 12/6 position as it rotates with the movement's four-arm platform that spans the front of the Astronomia. The Roman numerals on the skeleton dial are hand-engraved and filled with black lacquer, while the hand-finished hands are rendered in gun-blue metal.discount replica men watches
