It’s no surprise that the pinnacle of futurism is the metaverse, and several luxury labels have been proving their progressive approach to being innovative and experimental by expanding into the metaverse. Jacob & Co. is the latest brand to delve into the future of Web3 and made its debut with the launch of an NFT watch collection, aptly titled Astronomia Metaverso – and it is out of this world.
Exclusively in partnership with UNXD, the leading NFT marketplace for iconic luxury and culture, Jacob & Co.’s new collection continues its Astronomia line by extending it into a digital, crypto-native future – inspired by an imagined metaversal version of each planet in our solar system. Featuring 8 unique watch NFTs that are works of art in their own right, the collection also includes 5 one-of-a-kind physical watches (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter) whilst 3 of our most distant planets (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune) will be sold as digital-only NFTs with different stylistic variants.
A tribute to the finest craftsmanship in watchmaking alongside digital imagination, the Astronomia Metaverso collection also invites us into a plethora of unique experiences as each NFT is not only a beautiful work of art, but also a membership pass to Jacob & Co. digital/physical activations such as access to events, surprise drops as Jacob & Co. explores the digital world, high resolution renders of the watch and a beautiful “digital timepiece” that functions as a clock, and more.
“This is a long-term commitment for us, and the first in a series of launches,” says Benjamin Arabov, CEO of Jacob & Co. “As a company, we’ve always been on the bleeding edge of art and technology — forging our own path instead of following the crowd. We’re putting all our creative energy into this and can’t wait to show the world what we’re making.”
