JACOB ARABO (founder of JACOB & Co) donates a one-off timepiece to the OnlyWatch charity event 2017 ! and the lucky owner of this wonderful chronograph will not only get a unique timepiece but also an exclusive experience as he/she will attend the yearly « Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation » Gala 2018.

The EPIC X CHRONO is a big sporty creation. The rubber strap and grade 5 titanium case makes it pretty light and confortable on the wrist.

Furthermore, i really like the black smoked dial because depending on the light reflection you will see some parts of the calibre JCAA05. For instance, the barrel (or energy source) at 5.30 o’clock is open. It means that you can see the spring! and that’s a nice choice because the component shows you (in a way) if there is a need to wind the movement. It kind of indicates an approximate power reserve even if it won’t be a problem as this calibre is a self-winding mechanism. On your wrist, the oscillating weight fulfills its role and you can appreciate its motion through the open yellow case back.

The time setting is very easy (or standard) thanks to the crown at 3 o’clock and the seconds are shown on the small left dial counter. The chronograph counter is at 3 o’clock and another nice feature is the inner rotating bezel usually used as countdown timer or in diving activities knowing that the timepiece has a water resistance of 200 meters.

Always good to see that very exclusive brands like JACOB & Co are sensitive to charity actions and as a unique piece, the EPIC X CHRONO ONLY WATCH 2017 is obviously a collectible item.
