In part, this new frontier in watchmaking has come to fruition thanks to advancements in technology, micro-technology and materials used in watchmaking. Today, unusual shaped cases and crystals can be cut precisely to all angles thanks to high-precision CNC machines, and the mechanical movement can be reworked to tell time in different ways thanks to strong research & design teams composed of engineers and scientists as well as craftsmen.  This Jacob & Co. SF 24 is bold but not too big and offers real personality along with function. It retails for $95,000.
