In typical Jacob & Co style, the brand masterfully brings together haute joaillerie with haute horlogerie in a mystery watch that shimmers from every angle. The new 50mm Mystery Twin Central Tourbillons watch is free from traditional hands. Instead, two rubies on the inner diamond rings act as the hour and minute hands, while sapphires on the outer ring of diamonds mark the hours.
The five rings of diamonds are tiered, rising higher toward the center, where a circular opening displays two linked central triple-axis tourbillons.
The innermost row of diamonds features seemingly jagged cuts that hang out over the center — almost like peering over the edge into the heart of a volcano. In total, nearly 560 diamonds weighing 33.1 carats decorate the timepiece.
Price: $1.3 million in 18K white gold
