The Ghost is Coming to Jacob & Co.

Ghost 1 - Stainless Steel Diamond Case
Ghost 2 - 18k Rose Gold Diamond Case
A little leery are we? Well it is rather understandable since the mention of veil like filaments and an ice cold rush of unknown origin can whirl one into utter panic. Do not despair my friends, the ghost I am referring to does not belong to a wretched soul wandering aimlessly in a mid void, but rather Jacob & Co's  first ever digital watch set to be released around October; although the actual date is unconfirmed.

The design is outrageously stylish and trendy fusing high class bling bling watches with an edgy techno look.  Personally I think this collection will be highly popular - if you can afford it, but don't think that digital means a bargain. The  price for the Ghost Watch will be around $6,000 to $20,000 depending on the stones.

Ghost 3 - Black PVD Coated Steel Black Diamonds
Both the Ghost and the Global Collection (Five timezone quartz watch)  Jacob & Co utilizes an intriguing pentagon dial shape. The 47mm pentagon dial shape of the Ghost Collection has softened rounded points creating an elegant appeal. The timepiece is highly versatile - one watch capable of matching an entire wardrobe.

The bezel can be switched from carbon to diamond to rose gold and diamond bezels or just to one of simple grace - depending on the party of course.

The watch is powered by a Swiss Quartz movement with a slight addition.  The watch is equipped with a tiny USB mini charge from the crown.  Another great feature of the watch is its ability for the LED numbers and names of the five time zones to change color  from green to blue to yellow to red. The color of preference shall  remain by a simple push of a button.
G5 Designer Jacques Fournier

The timepieces are water resistant to 50 meters  and are presented on an alligator strap.

The five timezone G5 collection including the Grand, Global and Digital Ghost Series was created and developed by the incredibly talented Jacques Fournier owner of Horology Design Limited . The G5 collection renders a fresh new signature look to Jacob & Co. 

Ghost 5 - Black PVD & Carbon Fiber Bezel
Jacob & Co. is founded and owned by Jacob Arabo - or "Jacob the Jeweler" and is quite popular among the celebs. A Jacob & Co. creation has been spotted on  Madonna, Mila Jovovich, Tom Cruise, David Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Hally Berry, Brad Pitt and Geena Davis - just to name a few.

A special thanks to Jacob & Co. for answering my questions about the Ghost Collection.
