In our age of “best deals” and “unique opportunities” when the sellers offer to buy five units of something the price of one, it’s time to alert. However, the new model watches Jacob & Co – this is really five clocks at the price of one. And let them small, but – true luxury.
Design watches – a whole separate realm of industrial design, and in it the name of Jacques Fournier means a lot. This Swiss designer working in the studio Horology Design, and that her firm Jacob & Co commissioned the development of a new chronometer. Brand Jacob & Co is well known in the world, their watches are using Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton and other stars – so that, as recognized by Fournier, fall face in the dirt did not want to. The idea of new luxury watches were “five in one”.
Five small dials around a single center correspond to the five hour zones: New York, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and, of course, Moscow. Very useful if you are UN Secretary General manager or tour company.
Series called the G5, and as part of its Fournier has developed several solutions. First of all, fairly conservative-looking watch with a dial Grand 18K (750-I test) of gold and the Swiss quartz movement. Second, the collection Global – here, too, five dials and also gold (including white), but there is no overlap between the special dials.
The third collection – Ghost (“ghost”): the dials are digital. And fourth – Galega, designed for women. The designer, seems to have felt that this lady five clocks to nothing, and left only one dial. Injustice!
In each collection, five different chronometers with a different design, and all collections for some reason four. How much will it cost the hours – until precisely known, but usually watch Jacob & Co stand between 5 and in special occasions, 100 thousand dollars. Therefore, buying five hours costs alone can save from 20 to 400 thousand. Although easier still save on water.
