Jacob & Co. delivers another inventive take on the mechanical wristwatch. A cross between technological innovations, traditional watchmaking, and art, the “Oil Pump” sits at 47mm in case diameter and features a real working oil pump action function.

Made from 18k rose gold, the complete 3D action is on display as a large domed sapphire crystal is met with side sapphire construction — the watch acts as a miniature glass display case. Taking over a year to develop, the watch encompasses an oil reserve, two actuating oil well pumpjacks (activated with the pusher at 2 o’clock), and a double axis tourbillon — spinning a full revolution in 60 seconds on its first axis, and 2.5 minutes on its second axis.

This highly-limited watch will slowly be introduced to select high-end watch retailers, and at Jacob & Co. showrooms with a retail price of $380,000 USD.

For more watch news, BEAMS and Casio release two “Clear Skeleton” G-SHOCK watches.
