Jacob & Co. Offers Everest Expedition Trip With Explorer Johan Ernst Nilson With Purchase Of Astronomia Mount Everest Fake Watch UK

There’s a lot going on with the newest replica Jacob & Co. Astronomia Tourbillon. In fact, one might say the Astronomia Mount Everest watch tops all other Astronomia watches. Partnering with Swedish explorer and environmentalist, Johan Ernst Nilson, Jacob & Co. creates a limited edition watch that actually has a piece of rock from the legendary mountain inside.  That’s not all, though, the watch is sold with a helicopter experience that takes the buyer onto Mt. Everest with Nilson. There is even a charity component behind the watch.

It was just about two years ago that adventurer Nilson took an Astronomia Tourbillon watch with him while climbing the Himalayas. He climbed 6,200 meters and the watch continued to work despite minus-30-degree temperatures and the high altitudes. Now, Nilson – also a keen environmentalist – works with Jacob & Co. for the Astronomia Everest watch that incorporates elements from Nilson’s three most-accomplished expeditions: a trek to the North Pole, to the South Pole and his Mt. Everest climb.

As mentioned, there is a shard of a rock that Nilson collected from Mt. Everest in each watch. Additionally, there are two clear capsules that emulate buckets that Nilson used to collect water at each of the poles. Water from the poles is actually inside each of the capsules in an effort to celebrate Earth and its fragile environments.

The perfect fake watch, which retails for $884,800  — reflecting the height of Mt. Everest (8,848 meters), is also an incredibly complicated timepiece. Based on the brand’s beloved Astronomia Sky Tourbillon watch, the timepiece boasts a double-axis gravitational tourbillon on one of four satellites. The other three satellites feature a one-carat 288-faceted Jacob-cut diamond, a constantly rotating magnesium globe and the hour/minute dial.

This Astronomia Mount Everest marks the first time the brand uses Super-LumiNova for the hands, the glove and the constellations on the background. There is even Super-LumiNova on the strap. There are two versions of the 47mm watch, one with a black dial and crafted in blackened 18-karat white gold, and one with a blue dial and crafted of 18-karat white gold. Just 12 of each will be made, for a total of 24 watches  (representing the world’s 24  main time zones).

Additionally, and maybe most importantly, the watch also has a charitable component, in that 10 percent of the proceeds of the sale of each watch goes to organizations that are helping the environment.

Nilson, who has climbed the Seven Summits and holds a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for his Three Poles Challenge expedition, has witnessed climate change and its consequences in some of the most remote parts of the world.

“I want this special timepiece to help make a change in the world,” says Nilson. “The Astronomia is the only watch I’ve ever had people ask me about while I am wearing it, so we will be starting conversations that hopefully will lead to change. This special edition will spread the word about the fragility of our planet.”

Because the watch celebrates ethe beauty and fragility of Earth, Jacob & Co. and Nilson added an adventure to the purchase. Every buyer receives a helicopter trip for two with Nilson to the spot on Everest where he took the rock that is used for the watches.

“Raising awareness about the dangers facing our planet is important,” says Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co. “Working with well-known adventure activist Johan Ernst is a great way for our brand to get involved. Having a portion of the proceeds of the sale go to charity was vital for us — we all have to take action if we are going to make a difference.”

UK Quality Fake Jacob & Co. Unveils Special Edition Opera Scarface

When it comes to sheer pageantry, Jacob & Co. has to be placed near the top of the current list of haute horlogerie brands. This is most vibrantly shown in the marque’s more extravagant show pieces, featuring everything from a working model of the solar system to an ornately sculpted golden dragon. One of the most memorable of these in recent years has been 2018’s Opera Godfather, combining a triple-axis tourbillon with visual cues from the classic 1972 film “The Godfather” along with a twin-barrel music box complication that plays the film’s main theme on a miniature lacquered gold grand piano. For 2020, Jacob & Co. says hello to the Godfather’s “little friend” — the perfect replica Jacob & Co. Opera Scarface. Inspired by the 1983 cult classic gangster film of the same name, the Opera Scarface revives the Opera series with a distinctly Miami flair.
The 49mm case of the Jacob & Co. Opera Scarface is available in both 18k rose gold and black DLC-coated titanium variants, both following the same form as the Opera Godfather. This is far from subtle design, with the 23mm-thick main case taking a skeletonized approach to allow a view of the dial and movement from nearly any angle through a multi-part sapphire crystal. The main focal point of the case itself is undoubtedly the oversized rose gold violin-shaped crown at 3 o’clock. In addition to handling winding functions, the neck of this violin becomes a guard for the 2 o’clock pusher used to activate the Opera Scarface’s music box complication. Time setting is moved to a separate lift-out crown on the caseback.

For the Swiss made fake Jacob & Co. Opera Scarface, dial and movement more or less become one as the different complications dominate the space inside the case, while timekeeping is relegated to a small subdial at 12 o’clock. This subdial itself is attractive enough, with blued alpha hands above distinctive gold minute indices stretching all the way to the center of the subdial, but the real visual focus of the watch is in the other complications. From a horological standpoint, it’s difficult to top the mechanical spectacle of the 6 o’clock triple-axis tourbillon, with each cage counter-rotating at increasing speed. For sheer novelty value, however, the twin-barrel music box complication taking up half the total real estate of the dial is a definite conversation starter. At 10 o’clock, the playing tines of the music box are mounted under a black lacquered rose gold grand piano whose “keys” move in time with the “Bolivia Theme” from the 1983 film. At 4 o’clock, the second set of tines is covered with a rose gold and red lacquer recreation of the iconic “Scarface” poster featuring Al Pacino’s character from the film. At the center of it all, the globe from Tony Montana’s estate in the film is recreated in rose gold and red lacquer with its famous inscription: “The World Is Yours.” The overall package runs the risk of sensory overload, but the finishing on each element is undeniably exquisite.

The 49mm fake watch is made from 18k rose gold.

The hand-wound manufacture JCFM04 Swiss movement is seriously impressive from a technical standpoint. For starters, there are two separate power reserves, one of the tourbillon, hours and minutes, and a dedicated reserve for the music box complication. While timekeeping sits at 42 hours of reserve, the music box can play the full 30-second, 120-note melody three times before winding is needed. In addition to the two musical barrels, when activated, the music box rotates the entire movement, subdial and all, 120 degrees clockwise around the central axis while the hours and minutes subdial rotates on its own to ensure that 12 o’clock remains properly oriented. Beyond the music box, there’s the triple-axis tourbillon, counter-rotating in three unique directions at three different speeds. The outer cage completes a rotation every 180 seconds, with the middle cage rotating once every 48 seconds, and the inner cage completing its circuit in 24 seconds.
Best Jacob & Co. replica finishes the Opera Scarface with a classic black alligator leather strap, mounted on a case matching folding deployant clasp.
As a natural follow up to the Opera Godfather, the Jacob & Co. Opera Scarface may not be to everyone’s taste, but the finishing and presentation is a definite showstopper. Available now through authorized dealers, only 88 examples each of the rose gold and DLC titanium variants will be made.
