The Blue Salon stand at the 13th Doha Jewelry and Watches Exhibition stood out with some of the worlds most luxurious Watches and Jewelries. We are talking about multi million dollar watches and Jewelry here. Infact I never expected I would be writing about million dollar jewelries when I first started the blog but here is where I have landed with one of the most talked about timepiece at the Doha Jewelry and Watches Exhibition 2016; The Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette from Jacob and Co. Watch making at Jacob and Co. is no joke. Jacob Arabo, the founder of Jacob & Co. seriously makes exceptional signature timepieces.
Jacob and Co. surprised the visitors with a huge array of timepieces that range from complex tourbillons to stunning ruby and diamond delights. The most amazing of all, the Astronomia Gravitational Triple Axis Tourbillon which is mind blowing. The Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette is powered by the JCAM10 movement caliber with an orbital display that makes a full cycle around the dial every 20 minutes. The hand printed Titanium Earth sphere also rotates every 60 seconds. The tourbillon orbits the dial, alongside the other objects, every 20 minutes and a fourth arm offers the hours and minutes display.The watch is housed in a 50mm case and is paved with diamonds. There is a version without diamonds called the Astronomia Tourbillon that replaces the baguette cut diamonds watch face with night sky. The Astronomia Baguette approximately costs $1,000,000 (QR3.5mn). The diamonds are invisibly set on the dial and there 342 stones weighing 16 carats. There is just 18 pieces of this beauty which is individually numbered. The watch box is rather stunning and operated with a remote control. Justifiable for a legendary watch like this. you cam watch it here.
Some of the other most beautiful watches at Jacob & Co. were the Epic X Tourbillon Bracelet , Brilliant Flying Tourbillon Arlequino and the Caviar Tourbillon Collection. Some of the watches were just the single piece in the whole world which again adds to the special masterpiece collection like this unheated ruby studded watch. The rubies are cut exactly the same size for this whole watch. So much craftsmanship!
Jacob & Co. is not merely about distinctive watches; there is a collection of extravagant jewelries too. I was awe struck at the beauty of this Jacob & Co. Diamond Mesh Glove, which is the most expensive glove in the world. The 18K rose gold glove from the Rare Touch Collection is set with 382 brilliant cut diamonds totaling 19.43 carats.
