Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino

Luxury watches are not just about telling the time anymore. A case in point, the Astronomia Casino.

The Astronomia Casino features a fully-operational miniature roulette wheel beneath the watch’s sapphire crystal dome case. The watch's wheel, rendered in a spectacular array of green, red, and black enamel with mahogany inlays, is set in motion by a button at the 8 o’clock position (which also winds the movement).

This exceptional timepiece, the latest in Jacob & Co.’s signature Astronomia collection of celestial-themed timepieces, can be personalized with a mother of pearl insert placed by Jacob & Co. craftsmen on the owner’s lucky number.

Never before has there been a grand complication timepiece with a roulette wheel that spins, allowing owners to play their favorite game of chance at any time. Though the Astronomia Casino is simple to use and enjoy, the technical solutions to actually make it work seamlessly took more than a year of development time.

At the heart of the Astronomia Casino lies the superior timepiece craftsmanship for which Jacob & Co. is renowned. A double axis tourbillon counteracts the effects of terrestrial gravitation on the caliber’s mobile components as the tourbillon cage rotates in 60 seconds and completes a revolution over itself in 2.5 minutes, while the entire tourbillon covers a full revolution around the watch’s central axis in 10 minutes. Both the 1-carat, 288-facet Jacob Cut® diamond and the magnesium-lacquered blue globe rotate on themselves in 30 seconds, and travel with the tourbillon and the time display around the dial in 10 minutes. Jacob & Co.’s patented Differential Gears System allows the time display to maintain the 12/6 o’clock position regardless of where it is in the rotation.

Limited to 18 pieces for the world, the Astronomia Casino is the perfect timepiece for those chosen few who do not live at the mercy of chance but instead control their luck and command their fortunes.
