Astronomia Sky / Jacob & Co


The Astronomia family of tourbillons are Jacob & Co’s own unique take on creating an astronomical complication. Typically, they’re not intended to be highly accurate representations of actual astronomical cycles. Rather, they’re a kind of kinetic sculpture for the wrist, being based around a four-armed carrier system that supports a variety of additional displays or representations of heavenly objects. In the case of the Astronomia Sky, there is a very precise indication of sidereal time, as well as of the stars overhead. Limited edition of 18 pieces worldwide; $580,000 — via Hodinkee
