From the show-stopping brilliance of the 409 white diamonds that adorn its 18k rose or white gold case, crown, bezel and buckle, to the captivating intricacy of its open-work skeleton movement, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Jewelry timepiece is a fusion of time and light – a masterpiece that combines the classic art of the skeleton watch with the jeweler’s art of meticulous, invisible gem setting. This is a dazzling marriage of high-level mechanics with high-octane glamour.
The Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Jewelry shines the limelight on every lovingly crafted component of the movement through its sapphire crystal front and case back. As is the tradition with skeleton watches, all non-essential metal on mechanical parts of the watch has been trimmed away, including on the bridge, plate and wheel train, leaving just the barest skeleton of the spectacularly executed movement that makes the watch tick, with the hand-wound balance wheel seemingly suspended at 6 o’ clock.
Thanks to the dedicated, detailed work by gifted gem setters in the Jacob & Co. Geneva atelier, who have over half a century of experience between them, the invisible setting of the Top Wesselton round diamonds, with no visible gold in between each one, has resulted in a breathtaking bezel with an alluring, tactile quality and a super smooth finish.
The Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Jewelry timepiece is available in a limited edition of 101 individually numbered watches.
