Watches of Switzerland and select Mayors stores in Florida are hosting Jacob & Co as part of its designers in residence initiative.
The program aims to give prominent positioning and support to independent watchmakers that bring something fresh and fascinating to the group’s customers.
“We are constantly striving to raise the bar and deliver breakthrough experiences for our clients,” says David Hurley, executive vice president of The Watches of Switzerland Group USA. “This exciting partnership with Jacob & Co. gives us the opportunity to not only showcase exceptional and exclusive timepieces, but reinforce our reputation as the premiere destination for watch lovers.”
As part of the collaboration, participating boutiques will exclusively offer a new limited edition Jacob & Co. Epic X Chrono Sky Blue for an 8-week period beginning today (January 8).
“Watches of Switzerland is one of our most important retail partners, so when they approached us to collaborate with them on this limited edition project, we were happy to,” says Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co.
“Just as we have revolutionized watch creation, Watches of Switzerland has changed the face of watch retail. We really enjoyed creating this special timepiece, the Epic X Sky Blue Chrono, exclusively for Watches of Switzerland.”
The sky blue limited edition Epic X Chrono line has a blue mineral crystal dial with rose gold accents set in a 47mm titanium and 18ct rose gold case.
Epic X Chrono Sky Blue retails for $48,000 and is made as a limited edition of 180 pieces.
As part of the partnership, stores will also present other rarely seen Jacob & Co models, including the Astronomia Dragon, Astronomia Solar Baguette, Twin Turbo Furious, Fleurs de Jardin, and the Brilliant Arlequino Pastel.
