The Astronomia Panda is the newest of a collection of Astronomia Art timepieces that combine the groundbreaking Astronomia four-arm vertical movement with hand-made gold sculptures. In this instance three pandas and bamboo shoots play inside the iconic 47mm 18K rose gold case.
For the Astronomia Art Panda, Jacob & Co. craftsmen create three miniature depictions of pandas, bamboo and other foliage from 18K rose gold.
The pieces are first designed on a computer to ensure the dimensions don’t interfere with the movement. Then casts are made and finally artisans carve and paint the figures that will be placed within the watch.
