Created for ultra modern women who love high end horology creations with a fashionable twist, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights collection comprises five meticulously crafted manual winding skeleton watches, each one bursting with vibrant colour.
The Northern Lights is an inspirational natural phenomenon in regions of high latitude that fills the sky with surges of rich colored lights above the clouds. Reflecting the extraordinary hues of these captivating lights, the dial above the movement is made of hi-tech mineral crystal in a choice of red, green, yellow and blue – colors that echo the magnificent, iconic design of one of Jacob & Co.’s earliest watches, the Five Time Zone collection.
The watch is also available without mineral crystal resting above the movement, leaving the skeleton’s mesmerizing, meticulously polished and beveled architecture entirely open.
Every intricately crafted moving component of the Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights is in plain sight through both the front of the watch and its sapphire crystal 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.
The coloured mineral crystal used by the Jacob & Co. Geneva atelier in the Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights collection is a material used in machinery for medicine, chosen for its ability to reproduce remarkably vivid colour.
With a 46 hour power reserve, the Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights is encircled with rows of 360 pavé diamonds meticulously set on the stainless steel bezel and case, along with 76 diamonds on the buckle. The collection is offered with sumptuous satin straps in an extensive selection of colour options.
