Jacob & Co.’s Oil Pump announced ahead of Dubai Watch Week
Niche watchmaker Jacob & Co. has unveiled a stunning new Oil Pump-themed timepiece – complete with working oil reservoir – ahead of the biggest watch shindig in the Middle East, Dubai Watch Week.
The new watch is part of technological innovation and party traditional watchmaking, complete with a working oil pump mechanism.
The 47mm case is made from 18k rose gold, with a large domed sapphire crystal protecting the dial.
Jacob & Co. watches have always been very three dimensional in nature, and this one is certainly no different. The dial sees two actuating oil well pumpjacks (activated with the pusher at the 12 o’clock position) as well as working oil reserve.
This incredible piece of engineering will slowly make its way around the world – and only then to the most select high-end watch retailers – for a staggering US$380,000.
