    The Jacob & Co "Astronomia Sky" debuted in 2017 to much fanfare and awe. Never before has there been a timepiece of this visual stimulation and 3 dimensional celestial complication made for the wrist. To achieve this, founder Jacob Arabo partnered with complications specialist ATELIERS 7H38, which was founded by master watchmakers Luca Soprana and Christophe Naudin, to produce the movement based on their collaborative design. Unlike anything else, the movement utilizes a four arm carrier system that enables nearly every aspect of the watch to move at different rates and speeds. The other limited examples made of this timepiece have featured an orange sapphire for the moon, and this particular timepiece on offer showcases a Jacob cut diamond for this possibly unique example.

    This very rare and exclusive timepiece comes from the private collection of a independent watchmaking collector. It is accompanied by its original presentation boxes, and documentation.
