Jacob & Co. - An Addictive Opera

Jacob & Co. An Addictive Opera

After "The Godfather", the brand is now focusing on another cinematic monument with its Opera Scarface.

Launched in 2017, the original Opera model marked a turning point, not only for the Maison but also for watchmaking as whole: it was indeed the first luxury timepiece to combine a fine watchmaking tourbillon with a two-comb and two-cylinder music box. After “Melody” from the musical comedy Cats and “The Godfather” from the eponymous film, Jacob & Co. takes on Scarface with “Tony’s Theme”.

Based on the same principle as its predecessors, the music box plays its 120 notes at simple push of the 2 o’clock pushbutton, with the entire dial rotating 120 degrees beneath the anti-reflective sapphire crystal except for the time display. Appearing beneath the right-hand comb are the title of the 1983 film and the effigy of the main protagonist; while enthroned at the center of this creation is the 18-carat pink gold globe bearing the inscription “The World is Yours”, featured in the lobby of Tony Montana’s Miami mansion. The collaboration between Jacob & Co. and film giant Paramount Pictures is thus strengthened with these two 88-piece limited series in 18K gold and black DLC-coated titanium respectively.
