Celebrating two decades of collaboration, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jacob & Co. have united for two all-new watches, under the Jacob & Co. CR7 Epic X moniker. The inaugural timepieces, which honor Ronaldo’s global football domination and the timekeeper’s affinity for elevated watchmaking, sport profoundly personalized designs of the flagship Epic X.
The first model, “Flight of CR7,” with appears in rose gold with bezels set with 26 baguette-cut diamonds, was hand-delivered to Ronaldo in Lisbon on November 17, prior to his departure for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The path-forging player boasts a longstanding partnership with the watch company, having met founder Jacob Arabo in his career’s infancy, 20 years ago. Since then, their relationship has blossomed into a business venture in which Jacob & Co. produces timepieces inspired by Ronaldo’s expertise and sportsmanship.
The CR7 Epic X collection champions classic watch design, with a 44 mm case, X-shaped lugs, a diamond-set bezel and a tonal crown. Brought to life by Jacob & Co.’s signature caliber, the JCAM45, the timepiece offers a skeletonized movement, with two vertical pillars depicting Ronaldo and the CR7 label. Where the “Flight of CR7” model follows a red color story, the second iteration, “Heart of CR7,” appears green, with a stainless steel construction and a bezel set with 26 baguette-cut white diamonds.
