Jacob & Co. are crafting only 50 examples of the Opera Godfather 50th Anniversary. As with any of their exclusive releases, it won’t take long to sell out. There’s a lot to take in but let’s start with the 49 mm white gold case. The case middle flaunts various scenes from the movies in stunning detail.
The watchmaker is using a femtolaser to etch the images onto the precious metal. At 12 o’clock of the Opera Godfather 50th Anniversary is a sub-dial in 18K rose gold with piano key patterns that form the indices. Blue hands indicate the time. Meanwhile, at 6 o’clock is a triple-axis gravitational flying tourbillon.
Next are the music box barrels at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock with engravings of legendary lines from the trilogy. A pusher at 10’clock activates the complication which plays the iconic theme music of the films. Everything frames a hand-painted figurine of a rose in the middle.
The Opera Godfather 50th Anniversary runs on Manufacture Jacob & Co. JCFM04 manual movement with a 50-hour power reserve. Completing the ensemble is a black alligator strap with an 18K white gold folding clasp.Learn More
