The 'Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity Octopus' is a luxury watch that seems fit for a James Bond-esque villain. The incredible timepiece comes from Jacob & Co. and captures attention with the striking 3D octopus centered in the face of the watch. The octopus is clearly visible from the sapphire crystal face and its tentacles reach throughout the body of the watch and look as though they are reaching into all the moving mechanisms. The octopus features a vibrant yellow and blue design, and is hand engraved and lacquered.
The face of the Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity Octopus may seem difficult to read, but is actually quite simple once broken down into what each component does. A blue and earth globe rotates every 30 seconds on both horizontal and vertical axes. The hour and minute indications are located diagonally opposite from the triple-axis tourbillon, which is used to regulate the movement. The entire movement of the watch, including the movements of the octopus, are set to move every 10 minutes. The complex nature of the watch may make using it difficult, but it does show an incredible level of craftsmanship and attention to design.
