Eye Candy: Jacob & Co. Astronomia Dragon. Celebrating the Chinese Mythological Creature.

The Astronomia Dragon is a truly unique, groundbreaking timepiece that elevates the art of watchmaking combining the highest level of Swiss timepiece craftsmanship and the horological decorative arts to create a watch that is a poetic visual rendering of the celestial world with every element in constant, visible motion, all under the control of the oscillator at the heart of the three-axis tourbillon with an orbital display of the hours and minutes. This timepiece is fitted with an 18K rose gold case that looks more like a cage that holds six sapphire crystals throughout the top, bottom, caseband and in between the lugs.

Experience: WCL Collector's Evening with Jacob & Co. First Time the Astronomia Timepieces Make it to Mexico City.

A couple of weeks ago, we gathered with a small group of VIP watch collectors from Mexico City and our friends from Jacob & Co. to present for the very first time in Mexico, the three Astronomia timepieces. With a perfect setting at the ultra exclusive Executive Members Club Piso 51 located in the heart of Mexico City, we hosted a relaxing evening with champagne, hors d'oeuvres and incredible timepieces. As the sun set over one of the largest cities in the world, the Magnums of Taittinger champagne started to flow.
