The stars come out at night, and nowhere more so than in the world of Jacob & Co., a name synonymous with the nocturnal world of glamour, intrigue, and international excitement.
One of the most daring new introductions from Jacob & Co. the Ghost Collection lives up to its name by appearing mysteriously out of the darkness to thrill and excite wearer and viewer alike.
The timepieces of the Jacob & Co. Ghost collection show the day and date in five different time zones “on demand” –with the press of a button, the digital displays are illuminated in a stunning burst of light and colour. The pentagonal Ghost case, a homage to the iconic Jacob & Co. 5 Timezones watch, offers a profile as exotic as the illuminated time displays themselves, and the Ghost cases and bezels with a variety of both cutting edge modern materials and traditional tokens of luxury.
To enjoy the splendid fireworks of the Ghost timepiece, there are a variety of choices, pressing each of the crowns individually illuminates a single time display, while a longer press of the crown located at the upper right corner of the pentagon will illuminate all displays, which are able to display 32 colours including brilliant red, blue or yellow. The date alone can be displayed for each time zone at will as well, and naturally, the Jacob & Co. logo at the center of the watch glows whenever the time display is activated.
Like the supernatural creature of the night from which it takes its name, the Ghost can change personality as well. Each Ghost timepiece features an interchangeable bezel, which is available in black PVD, carbon fibre, stainless steel, or 18 carat rose gold, with white or black diamond set bezels available.
Ever changing, and always dramatic and unexpected, the Ghost timepieces from Jacob & Co. are glamorous creatures of the night.
Jacob and Co chose watch designer Jacques Fournier of Horology Design Limited to create the G5 series including the Grand, Galega, Ghost and Global collections. As can be seen Jacques has a unique and distinctive style providing renowned watch brands worldwide with groundbreaking creations.
