JACOB & CO. EPIC X CHRONO “MESSI”

This limited edition collection was created in partnership with legendary soccer star Leo Messi.

The Jacob & Co. EPIC X CHRONO “Messi” watch features a polished grade-5 titanium case, anti-reflection sapphire glass, white ceramic chronograph bezel and buttons, titanium and blue-rubber horns, and red-rubber crowns. This eye-catching wonder is also water resistant to 200 meters, guaranteed shock resistant, and available in a strictly limited edition. Its immediately distinguishable light blue and white color was derived from the flag of Argentina, which is Messi’s home country.

Naturally, Leo Messi wanted to personalize his watch, so he put his iconic number 10 in red on the flange ring, his logo – a stylized M – on the dial at six o’clock, and his signature on the blue sapphire glass at the back of the case, which offers a view of the automatic bi-compax skeleton chronograph movement (JCAA05). This unique Jacob & Co. manufacturing gauge operating at 4 Hz reveals its sophistication with a column wheel and 48-hour power reserve.

The EPIC X CHRONO “Messi” marks the beginning of an exclusive three-year timepiece partnership between the football great and Jacob & Co. and will be the first of several limited edition designs to be released from the collaboration.
