    Jacob & Co.'s new astronomy accompanies Everest trip

    Complicated watches like Jacob & Co.'s Astronomia are usually kept in a collector's case most of the time, only taken out when needed.jacob and co astronomia replica

    Usually, that occasion is a black-tie gala or an anniversary dinner at a three-Michelin-starred restaurant. For Swedish explorer and expedition activist Johann Ernst Nielsen, climbing the Himalayas was the perfect opportunity.

    Wearing a watch like this in harsh conditions like Mount Everest might sound downright absurd, but that's exactly the preconception that the Swiss watchmakers wanted to overturn. Nelson - who is no stranger to cold, inhospitable conditions - proved he carried one with him on his last summit. Many watches would have collapsed at temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius, and at an altitude of 20,000 feet, more tolerant of the ice-tall walls that came with scaling effects, but survived the astronomy, which has innspired the watches we see today – astronomical turrets Flywheel Mount Everest.

    Like the Astronomia Sky, this special edition sees the company's signature dual-axis gravitational tourbillon on one of the four satellites. Unlike the sky, however, this Everest version has more of a connection to Earth, so the two vials at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock contain actual water Nelson has collected at the North and South Pole. On the other end of the magnesium-painted globe is a 1-carat Jacobean-cut diamond (or black sapphire, depending on the version) that spins in 60 seconds.

    At the center of the watch, however, is the star of the show: a rock on Mount Everest itself, another memento of Nelson's adventures.Replica Carl F. Bucherer PATRAVI watches

    Easter eggs on Earth aside, this watch is actually designed with a purpose. The Astronomia watch uses Super-Luminova luminous material for the first time on the hands. The constellations, rotating globes, logos, and even the strap on the basic dial have added some functions to the watch that was originally just a work of horological art.

    The Astronomia Tourbillon Everest comes in a display box shaped like Mount Everest, and there's even a line to trace climbers' routes to the world's highest peak. This watch – limited to 24 pieces – sits in an icy interior and features a mini speaker that can play recorded sounds of the strong winds of Mount Everest, but if that’s not realistic enough for you, every sale includes a Nelson went on a helicopter expedition to Mount Everest—to the spot where the rock in the watch was discovered.High Quality Replica watches
