Music “Godfather” watch made by Jacob & Co.
It took a year to obtain a sought-after license agreement with Paramount Pictures with this tribute perfect replica watch.
Jacob Co (Jacob Co) is known for creating top-notch timepieces, their details are dazzling and confusing, and never hesitate to “wow” factor. But for the latest work in his Opera series, which combines the mechanical craftsmanship of Swiss watchmaking and music boxes, Araby felt that something was missing. Then he realized that the problem was with this song: “I want to put something iconic on this watch, and then the godfather thought of it.” Said the man behind the New York luxury watch and jewelry brand Jacob & Co.
Nino Rota’s Golden Globe winners are familiar at a glance, and Arabo likes to share with Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 Oscar-winning film and its music Thoughts of tribute. This is how the Opera Godfather watch was born, although it is not easy to enter the hands of collectors, mainly because the watch needs to be reviewed by Paramount Pictures, the company owns the rights of The Godfather and its score.
“Once I had this idea, I thought,’Let me try to contact Paramount Pictures and let us see what they say.'” Arable recalled. “They conducted research and conducted due diligence, and in the end they liked the idea and gave me a license.” The whole process took almost a year-initially before the rights were obtained, the form was published in March 2018 It was exhibited at the Baselworld Swiss Watch Fair-and Arabo added that the agreement includes “financial arrangements applicable to both companies.”
At the end of last month, at the recent Basel International Watch and Jewellery Fair, the official license also appeared: including the godfather logo. Arabo believes that Rota’s iconic score logo and 120 notes are worth it when you press the putter at 2 o’clock on the case. He said: “Beautiful works take time, and I got the watch I wanted.”
The Opera Godfather is housed in a 47mm case made of domed sapphire crystal with 18 carats of rose gold or titanium on the side. This large case can hold two specially made to reproduce music The lens barrel. “The barrels are probably the most difficult part, because they have to be played together at the correct speed so that you can recognize the music,” Arable explained. In addition, you must carefully observe the piano above the barrel at 10 o’clock to find that its keys move in time with the music. The center of the case is located above the three-point tourbillon, and below the gold-coated dial at 12 o’clock, is a miniature hand-painted statue of Mario Puzo’s most famous character.
The price of Opera Godfather watches ranges from titanium version to rose gold. Arabo said: “We can only make the movement for this watch five times a month, so some collectors will wait five, six or seven months to receive it.” He pointed out that both models may be soon sold out. He added: “Too bad, I want to prepare one for myself.”
This process has also triggered people’s thinking about the future of watches, which will honor other movies and their own iconic music. But for the time being, Alabro is confident in the choice of this best replica watches. He recalled: “You know, I went to Rome last year and walked into one of the most famous churches in the city.” “In the middle of this beautiful cathedral, did I hear the sound of a performance? The music of the godfather. I was simply Can’t believe it. But it also proves that it is a good choice. The music is beautiful and it can be recognized everywhere. The world.”
