During a press conference with reporter Dustin Poirier about the upcoming UFC 257 fight, fighter Conor McGregor did not forget to take the time to share about the Jacob and Co. worth millions of dollars that you just own!
Specifically, in an Instagram post, “The Notorious” showed off a Jacob and Co. Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette in rose gold that he bought for $1 million.
A super-complicated watch from the great watchmaker Jacob and Co., the Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette is worthy of a miniature work of art, deftly depicting the distinctiveness of horological art. And with just a glance, we are sure to be fascinated by the sapphire and 18K rose gold case with a diameter of 50mm and adorned with a total of 342 baguette diamonds weighing 16 carats.
Thanks to its large size and thickness of up to 25mm, the Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette has provided artisans with fertile ground to freely demonstrate their mechanical genius through extremely sophisticated mechanical movements, with the ability to rotate around the axis in 2 directions to vividly simulate the motion of the solar system, and complete a full 360-degree rotation every 20 minutes.
Each time the arms rotate, the components on the dial will also move at a certain angle to adjust the viewing angle in the most stable position.
The Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette’s fully transparent design pulls the viewer away from the earth and truly experiences zero gravity. Prominent on the dial encrusted with sparkling baguette diamonds are 4 swingarms connected to the mechanical movement. The first one is responsible for supporting the hour and minute indicator dials. The symmetric second one houses the circular movement of a large flying tourbillon cluster – a masterpiece of the pinnacle that very few watch brands can match. Particularly on the other two axes are two meticulously hand-finished and decorated spheres representing the earth and moon that can rotate on its own axis in 60 seconds. With the Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette, the whole “universe” feels like it fits on the owner’s wrist.
In addition, in the framework of the press conference, when talking about his admiration for the masterpieces of the producer Jacob and Co., McGregor did not hesitate to share that he is really interested in the version. Rasputin Tourbillon – a repeater with an 18k white gold case and baguette diamonds for $2 million.
