The Astronomia Solar is a £538,000 watch made by luxury watch brand Jacob & Co.
Jacob & Co are only making 18 of this watches, each costing more than half a million pound. It’s going to be a very rare and expensive watch.
What makes it so special?
Jacob and Co watchmaker, Luca Soprana says: “The Astronomia is a very, very delicate piece. Every component needs to be perfectly balanced so we need to use very special materials – like titanium – that are very delicate. The idea is really to come with a watch that is three-dimensional and the watch has to be spectacular.”
“What really makes the piece special is really the technique. The complexity of how it works, and to have an equilibrium of all the components.”
The face of the watch consists of transparent glass, that allows you to see the small planets that make up the watch. Over a calendar year, the planets replicate the movement of planets in the solar system.
This is a remarkable watch, which is showcasing that horology is here to stay. Can your Apple watch do this?
The watches will cost £538,000.
