Jacob & Co The Opera Scarface, in partnership with NBC/Universal Pictures.
The movie Scarface (1983/ Director: Brian De Palma; Writer: Oliver Stone; Stars: Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steven Bauer) had an incredible impact on entire generations of people all around the world. To honor this seminal movie, the Jacob & Co Opera collection is expanding to include the Opera Scarface, playing “Bolivia” from the movie on the integrated Swiss music box.
A press of the pusher at 10 o’clock and the 120-note music box plays “Bolivia” from Scarface, while the entire dial rotates 120 degrees under the domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The time display always stays in the correct 12/6 position thanks to an ingenious, and patented, differential system.⠀
Powering this timepiece is Jacob & Co ’s signature triple-axis tourbillon movement, wound by the 18K rose gold violin-shaped crank on the side of the watch. Comprised of 658 individual parts, the movement of this luxurious timepiece is ultra-complex, with a tourbillon that turns in 24 seconds on one axis, eight seconds on the second axis, and 72 seconds on the third. ⠀
The power reserve for the movement and the music box function are separate – the watch has a power reserve of 48 hours, while the music can be played two-three times before you have to rewind it.
