Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Luis Figo- The Timepiece of Legends
Luxury timepiece and diamond jewelry house, Jacob & Co. has partnered with football legend, Luís Figo, of Sporting Lisbon, FC Barcelona, and Real Madrid fame, to introduce three new limited-edition timepieces launched during the international watch and jewelry fair, Baselworld 2018.
Portuguese football legend, Luis Figo, has had a long association with Jacob & Co. A self –confessed fan of the brand, he previously wore the brand’s signature Epic SF 24 model as his timekeeping instrument of choice. The brand has now released limited edition timepieces, Epic X Chrono, with the football star’s name.
The three timepiece models come in a 47-mm diameter case with a choice of 18-k carat rose gold, black DLC titanium or titanium case. A ceramic bezel, push buttons, and crown, as well as an openwork rubber wristband makes for an edgy timepiece. Water resistant to 200m, and a high-performance automatic chronograph movement: Jacob & Co.’s exclusive JCAA05 skeleton Bi-Compax caliber and it’s 48-hour power reserve. It offers 260 components in total that render the Epic X Chrono an extraordinary watch; 27 rubies, a column wheel and anti-shock system; an anthracite grey rotor and red-lacquered engraved logo; angled, polished and circularly grained bridges and movement components visible through the smoked sapphire case back. The case back of the Luis Figo limited edition pieces are engraved with his name, while the dial’s rehaut features his jersey number – 10.
Each version of this new Luis Figo Limited Edition Epic X Chrono is equipped with a black rubber wristband, which will allow football aficionados to time the games during this summer’s World Cup in Russia while also championing their penchant for a distinct style.
Cutting edge and stylish, this timepiece has it all. The limited edition collection will offer only 110 pieces in total: 50 in rose gold, 30 in black DLC titanium, and 30 in titanium.
