30 years of Jacob & Co.

The American of Uzbek origin, Jacob Arabo, comes up with extravagant watches covered in precious stones, and with exceedingly high price tags. Purists listen up, his success may well have begun with the rappers in New York in 1986, but today he has his own Geneva workshops in which the watches are set and his own movements are developed. Beautiful trajectory.
