Time check: Jacob & Co Arlequino's timepieces
Jacob & Co understands gemstones and they apply that intimate knowledge to their watchmaking projects, one piece at a time. Their marriage between jewellery and horology is now evident in the stunning Arlequino line, a collection of watches, which showcases not only artistry but also fine craftsmanship.
While it may look like simple gem-setting, the different physical characteristics of the gemstones – diamonds, rubies, sapphires – requires that each stone be placed at the perfect angle to ensure not only pleasing aesthetics but also technological continuity.
For 2016, two new models will be made available: the Brilliant Flying Tourbillon Arlequino and the Caviar Tourbillon Arlequino. The unique pieces, encapsulated by both brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds, sparkle as the colours of the gemstones complement one another perfectly.
