Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a Jacob & Co. presentation box.

"While formulating the Quenttin concept I drew a picture inspired by the gas meters I remember very clearly from my childhood in Russia. When I was growing up, gas meter was very visible features in the houses." ---Jacob Arabo, CEO of Jacob & Co.

Inspired by such, this futuristic wristwatch was first launched in 2007.  Within the bold, oversized rectangular 18k white gold case, the Quenttin features a broad palette capturing the vertical movement. On the side, a tourbillon cage has been finely mounted vertically and can be admired through a sapphire crystal display in the case band.  This innovative watch also comes with an astounding power reserve of 31 days which is supplied by the energy of 7 gold coloured barrels.

This model is limited to only 99 pieces in white gold, the present example is numbered 38.  To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time the Jacob & Co. Quenttin has been offered at auction.
