After teaming up with Bugatti for a menacing Chiron Tourbillon with a working 16-cylinder engine, luxury watch manufacturer Jacob & Co. is back with another jaw-dropping timepiece. Taking on its classic Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin design, the New York company has reinterpreted the Tourbillon-clad wristwatch in a striking rainbow color palette.
“Long seen as a beacon of hope at the end of a storm, rainbows have prevailed throughout history as the universal symbol for optimism,” the company shared in a press release. The watch, designed to “recreate a garden on your wrist,” features multicolored sapphire flowers at the Tourbillon, time display, and upper level, all of which travel around the dial clockwise. A mother-of-pearl base set with rainbow-colored sapphire flowers moves counterclockwise. This is all housed in an 18k rose gold case that features a bezel and inner ring set with more rainbow sapphires. Finishing off the piece is a 288-facet Jacob-cut grass-green tsavorite at the center.
Take a detailed look at Jacob & Co.’s Rainbow Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin above. While no price is listed, only 101 units have been made available.
