  • Catalogue Essay

    Jacob & Co is a renowned jeweler based in New York City which was founded in 1986 by Jacob Arabo. A relatively young brand, it has achieved great success in jewelry and recently also in watchmaking.

    Having already making itself a name in the world of horology, The Quenttin is also a statement by itself, being the first wristwatch to feature a 31-day power reserve and a one-minute vertical tourbillon. Another revolutionary feature of The Quenttin is the positioning of the wheels as all wheels are positioned around several axles and uniformly lined up horizontally, which is somewhat similar to the gear box of a car.

    The present example is a white gold version with carbon fiber detailing on both sides of the case.


An exceptional and rare limited edition white gold and carbon fiber vertical tourbillon wristwatch with 31-Day power reserve indicator, numbered 00 of a limited edition series of 99 pieces
