Jacob & Co. presents a limited edition version of its Epic X Chrono. The UAE Limited Edition watch is dedicated to the UAE as we enter the year in which it celebrates its 50th anniversary.


The special customised edition comes in a 47mm 18K DLC Grade 5 titanium case whose lugs are offset by a bright white ceramic bezel as well as white ceramic pushers and crowns. The colours of the UAE flag are set into the centre of the dial.


On the back of the case, the UAE emblem of a golden falcon is superimposed on the smoke sapphire crystal exhibition back. Known as the Hawk of Quraish, this emblem has the UAE flag in the centre and is surrounded by seven stars representing the seven Emirates. In the hawk’s talons is a red parchment with the name of the federation written in Kufic script.



The Epic X is a modern sports watch. Rough and ready it features built-in shock resistance up to 200 metres as well as a high-watchmaking, column-wheel chronograph movement. The bi-compax design features two chronograph subdials on the mineral crystal dial and a semi-skeletonized automatic movement. All of this is encased in an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.


“The Middle East is one of my favorite places in the entire world,” says Jacob Arabo, founder and chairman of Jacob & Co. “I love this region, there is so much warmth and knowledge here, and I pledge to continue to work hard to surprise and delight our customers there.”
