While we know that understated, subtle and demure are the usual signs of classic elegance Jacob & Co’s saturated new-offering prove that a timeless investment needn’t be dull.
The Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin is a celebration of craftsmanship, delicacy and, most importantly, a dazzling array of colour, so naturally when we we're asked if we’d like to get an exclusive first glance at the campaign’s mesmerising video, it was a resounding yes.
Initially introduced in 2019 the a la mode timepiece may be new, but that doesn’t make it anything less than classic.
Set into a rose gold bezel and atop a mother-of-pearl base is a mighty 88 sapphires around the face alone, with every carefully curated stone gradienting into the next wash of rainbow shade. They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, now a watch by its face – but with workmanship ‘inspired by the impossible’, the model truly does encompass both form and function.
Our favourite part about this uber-effeminate take on horology? The uplifting and whimsical ideology behind the rainbow aesthetic; ‘Long seen as a beacon of hope at the end of a storm, rainbows have prevailed throughout history as the universal symbol for optimism.’ While we could all do with the uplifting notion of a rainbow right now, we’d rather be wearing one.
This exclusive piece really is an heirloom in the making, with a limit of just 101 pieces being sold. There are tales of hidden treasures at the end of rainbows, but with the new Fleur de Jardin from Jacob & Co., there is no need to look further than your wrist.
