  • Catalogue Essay

    The Epic SF24 embodies the dream of Jacob Arabo, the founder and Chairman of Jacob & Co, to transport the traveller back in time. Indeed, the movements of the flaps are reminiscent of billboards from train stations and airports, the preferred locations of globetrotters. The flaps represent also a technical achievement of their own as they require 163 miniaturized components (473 in total for the movement) to provide a unique and instantaneous experience.
    The Epic SF24 has a very sophisticated GMT mechanism, but is used playfully. Indeed, on the wrist of its owner, a push of the left pushbutton allows the vertical time display of the 24 time zones of the planet. The Epic SF24 for Only Watch is particularly unique in that it offers the opportunity for the purchaser to customize a flap, adding his beloved city.
