The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon, often called a “cage,” is one of the most dangerous places on Earth. It takes special courage to enter this arena, and something even more special to come out the victor. Khabib Nurmagomedov has emerged triumphant from the Octagon 29 times, and he has never lost.
Jacob & Co. X Khabib Nurmagomedov founder and chairman Jacob Arabo is a lover of the fight game and has attended many MMA fights over the years.
“I am a huge fan of Khabib,” says Mr. Arabo. “I have been following his career for a long time and when his team approached us about working together to create some limited-edition watches, I was very excited. For me, Khabib is the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet and he fits the brand to a ‘T.’ In more ways than one, it’s Khabib’s time.”
For Khabib, the partnership makes complete sense. “I’m unlike any other fighter today and Jacob & Co. is the same way, different from every other brand,” he says. “We fit perfectly together.”
Jacob & Co.’s sportiest timepiece, the 47mm Jacob & Co. X Khabib Nurmagomedov Epic X Chrono features a column-wheel chronograph movement that is partially skeletonized. Highlighted with green touches, the timepiece features a green mineral crystal dial, red rubber crowns, an inner rotating bezel, the legend “29-0” at 6 o’clock, and is water resistant to 200 meters.
The bright polished titanium case works well with the green decoration, green mineral crystal dial, white rubber pushers, green rubber crowns, inner rotating bezel, and the legend “29-0” at 6 o’clock. A column-wheel chronograph, the Epic X Chrono Titanium Khabib is a true sports watch, water resistant to 200 meters.
Powered by a high watchmaking tourbillon movement, which is finely finished and skeletonized, this incredible limited edition features beautiful blue decorations, with “The Eagle” engraved on the inner bezel ring. The tourbillon is considered the pinnacle of watchmaking, and Jacob & Co.’s exclusive skeletonized version removes as much material as possible, making it almost see-through. The bold 44mm Epic X case showcases this mesmerizing complication with its exposed gears, wheels, and bridges.
This 44mm timepiece is cased in titanium and features a meticulously skeletonized manual-wind movement. Light and easy to wear, the Jacob & Co. X Khabib Nurmagomedov Epic X Skeleton is perfect for everyday use or when worn with a suit. Decorated in lustrous green, this special timepiece has “The Eagle” engraved on the inner bezel ring.
