Jacob & Co. has been known for its shiny and exuberant timepieces but there have been instances when the brand came up with sturdy, robust timepieces. Launched in 2015, the Jacob & Co. Epic X collection is one such addition to the brand’s lineup. With lugs clutching the bezel, the sturdy timepiece offers a silhouette of X on the dial with signature vertical bridges.
The Jacob & Co. Epic X collection is a skeletonised set of timepieces that offer a much deeper look into the functioning of the movement. The various components such as wheels, balance springs, bridges, and mainspring barrels are visible on the dial. The leaf-shaped skeletonised hands are fitted with red ends that work in conjunction with an inner ring to denote minutes.
A redesigned version of the Epic X called Epic X V2 offers a fresh outlook towards a skeleton watch with bridges finished with the Clou De Paris Guilloche pattern.
Returning to its gem-setting traditions, the Epic X Baguette offer a robust way of timekeeping. With baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel, the timepieces are an opulent addition to the collection. Inside the Epic X Baguette V2, the vertical bridges and the lugs are also fitted with baguette-cut diamonds.
The Epic X also features a tourbillon-laden variant. Called the Epic X Tourbillon Baguette, the timepiece features a single-axis tourbillon at 6 o’clock. Apart from the tourbillon, the highlight of the timepieces is an array of colourful baguette-cut precious stones apart from diamonds such as rubies, sapphires, and spinel.
Jacob & Co. also collaborated with UFC Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and created an Epic X featuring a tourbillon and his unbeatable score of “29-0”.
