Adorned with 260 gemstones on its case, bezel, crown and buckle, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Baguette reflects a successful alliance between the classic skeletonising techniques and the jeweller’s art of meticulous, invisible gem setting.
The Brilliant Skeleton Baguette shines the limelight on every lovingly crafted component of the movement through its sapphire crystal front and case back. As is the tradition with skeleton watches, all non-essential metal on mechanical parts of the watch has been trimmed away, including on the bridge, plate and wheel train, leaving just the barest skeleton of the spectacularly executed movement that makes the watch tick, with the hand-wound balance wheel fully visible at 6 o’ clock.
Thanks to the dedicated, detailed work by gifted gem setters in the Jacob & Co. Geneva atelier, who have over half a century of experience between them, the invisible setting of the baguette diamonds, with no visible gold in between each one, has resulted in a breathtaking bezel with an alluring, tactile quality and a super smooth finish.
The Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Baguette is available in a limited edition of 101 individually numbered watches. The watch is available in rose or white gold and the crown is topped with a rose cut gemstone.
Precious gemstone and alligator leather strap options: white diamonds with black strap, rubies with green strap, orange sapphires with brown strap, blue sapphires with white strap, pinks sapphires with green strap, tsavorites with brown strap.
