Jacob & Co. - Epic X Chrono Messi "Only Watch" Special Edition

Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Messi "Only Watch" Special Edition

Jacob & Co. and Lionel Messi collaborate on a special timepiece for Only Watch 2019 and offer an exclusive experience.

Exclusively for the Epic X Chrono Messi "Only Watch" Special Edition, Jacob & Co. has adorned the 47mm grade 5 titanium case of the Epic X Chronograph “Messi” with 36 baguette-cut blue sapphires (~5.6 carats) on the 18K white gold bezel.

In keeping with the blue theme of this year’s auction, the blue sapphires are matched with a blue mineral glass covering the skeletonized column wheel chronograph movement, white ceramic pushers, blue rubber horns and a red rubber crown. Messi’s famous number “10” is in red, and his stylized logo appears at the six o’clock position of the dial. On the blue mineral and sapphire crystal caseback is Messi’s signature, the Only Watch logo and the words Piece Unique.

This Only Watch Auction lot features a priceless experience – the winning bidder will meet Lionel Messi in person, having the opportunity to take pictures with this football legend, having him sign some things and pose for an official portrait with Messi while both are wearing their Epic X Chronograph “Messi” watches.

“One of the reasons for the collaboration with Jacob & Co. was precisely to work on social projects,” says Messi. “Congratulations and thank you to Only Watch for giving us the opportunity to auction a watch from the Jacob & Messi limited edition collection to combat such a sad illness as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. And thanks in advance to the people who will bid on the watch – it will be a pleasure to meet the final buyer.”

“When we approached Only Watch about participating, we knew that we had to do something spectacular,” says Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co. “Producing a piece unique watch that pairs horology and extraordinary gem-setting with an exclusive experience, getting the chance to meet one of modern football’s living legends, Lionel Messi, makes this Only Watch lot out of this world. I hope it will raise a great deal of money for the cause.”
