Wildcatters, roustabouts and roughnecks rejoice! Now there is a timepiece that immortalizes the allure of black
gold and the oil industry. For the first time ever in watchmaking, and after more than a year in development, Jacob & Co. has incorporated two working derricks, an “oil” reservoir and a system of pipes into a timepiece, powered by a manual-wind double-axis tourbillon at its heart. The tourbillon cage Oil Pump makes a full revolution on its first axis in 60 seconds and on its second axis in 2.5 minutes. The rose gold Oil Pump automaton is on demand, activated by a pusher at two o’clock. All of this comes in a very wearable 47mm 18K rose gold and sapphire crystal case, with a solid 18K rose gold case back. Keeping the design clean, there is no setting crown, instead the winding and time setting is done using two bows built into the case back. Everything is on display in the Oil Pump thanks to the unique domed sapphire with a double anti-reflective treatment. Water resistant to 30 meters, this watch is designed to go where you go, whether it’s out to the oil fields, on your private jet or in the casinos. The Oil Pump, with its oil pumping animation on demand on the dial, is the watch for the special few who have “black gold” in their veins.
