Taking transparency and complications to the extreme, the new Jacob & Co. timepiece is a sight to behold. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Luxury watch and jewellery maker Jacob & Co. has unveiled the Astronomia Sky, a stunning timepiece that reveals the intricate mechanical heart in all its glory. Inspired by the astronomical clocks of the past, the new watch also includes a three-dimensional sidereal display that adds to the marvel of the creation.

The timepiece's pièce de résistance, the sidereal or 'star' time, is combined masterfully with a web of other complications within the dial. The list of wonders in the horological masterpiece also includes a triple axis gravitational tourbillon, the oval sky indicator to indicate star positions, a hand-engraved globe in the centre to signify day and night, the 'Jacob Cut' red moon that's made from orange sapphire and the time sub-dial, which remains upright throughout its orbit within the dial.

The Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky is only limited to 18 pieces. For more information, visit
