STORY

The tradition of automatons in watchmaking is long and varied, normally with a very traditional focus. Jacob & Co. excels in traditional watchmaking with a modern twist, which perfectly describes the Oil Pump. It’s a traditional automaton with a contemporary subject – the oil industry.

“I have many, many friends in the oil business, who came to me to develop something special for them,” remembers Jacob Arabo. “I saw what was on the market and I knew they wanted something more interesting and cooler. I had been talking with my engineers for three years to design this. What we have come up with is the real thing, it takes you straight to the oil fields.”

The two derricks move on demand, and there is even an “oil reserve” on the dial of the watch.

DOUBLE-AXIS TOURBILLON

Powering this incredible timepiece is Jacob & Co.’s iconic double-axis tourbillon. The first axis makes a full revolution in 60 seconds, while the second axis makes a full revolution in 2.5 minutes. The power reserve for this high watchmaking movement is 60 hours.

AUTOMATA

The pusher at two o’clock starts the two derricks moving, pumping up and down. Rather than stuffy jaquemarts or something classic, the Oil Pump modernizes the automaton with two oil derricks that move in unison. Depressing the pusher charges the power reserve for the automaton and sets them into action.

CASE

The 49.5mm 18K rose gold case features a domed, double anti-reflective sapphire crystal on top. The watch is set and wound via two 18K rose gold bows in the case back.

DIAL

The dial is a grill evocative of oil rigs, offering a glimpse of the high-watchmaking movement underneath. A system of 18K rose gold pipes and wheels connects the various elements above the grill, including an “oil pressure gauge” power reserve and an 18K rose gold oil reservoir, completing the wildcatting theme.
