Jacob & Co X Cristiano Ronaldo Epic X watch collection

Cementing 20 years of friendship with CR&, Jacob & Co has created a new collection with two inaugural timepieces:

  • The Jacob & Co CR7 Epic X “Flight of CR7”
  • The Jacob & Co CR7 Epic X “Heart of CR7”.

This initial collection will be followed up by new designs.

The first “Flight of CR7” in rose gold whose bezel is set with 26 baguette-cut diamonds, was delivered in person to Cristiano Ronaldo in Lisbon on November 18th, just before he left for the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a long-standing and close partner to Jacob & Co. Over the past twenty years. Jacob Arabo met Cristiano Ronaldo when the Madeira-born football player was a promising rising star. They both crafted their success from the ground up, building it through relentless determination and hard work. Through the years, their friendship has grown, extending to a business venture in which Jacob & Co creates timepieces inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo.

The CR7 Epic X collection is a profoundly personalized version of the Epic X. It has all the hallmarks: a 44 mm case with X-shaped lugs, a smooth and polished or diamond-set bezel and a colored crown and flange. It is powered by one of Jacob & Co’s most emblematic calibers, the JCAM45.

Hand-wound, this skeletonized movement offers a striking architecture: its two vertical pillars form the central part of the X-shape initiated by the lugs, whose design inspired the name Epic X.

These two pillars are designed to represent Cristiano Ronaldo and the CR7 brand. The left pillar takes on the shape of Cristiano Ronaldo himself, while the right one bears his logo and his signature, both engraved in bold. The skeleton barrel cover is shaped like a football. Another image of Cristiano Ronaldo himself, wearing his iconic # 7 jersey, is printed on the case back’s tinted sapphire crystal.
