Inside Jacob’s TOP SECRET Watch Factory
We've been promising you something very special, and this week, it's here! We had the amazing opportunity to tour one of Jacob's factories where his incredible watches are made. This week, we're finding out about the amazingly intricate process of creating sapphire crystal cases for some of his most expensive creations, such as the Astronomia, Chiron and Twin Turbo.
Big thank you to Jacob and Alexander for letting us film some of the processes involved in creating these cases. As you can imagine, a lot of the techniques and knowledge is highly guarded, and this is the first time that cameras have ever been allowed around this factory.
Stay tuned (and make sure you're subscribed) as we delve deeper into the watchmaking process, when we head to a different factory to find out how Jacob's movements are created and installed into the watches.
