New York-based luxury timepiece and jewelry brand Jacob & Co. (Jacob & Co) has launched a watch that amazes everyone. Price of Luxury Limited Edition ‘Godfather’ Music Box Watch is 330,000 (over Rs 2.5 Crore). The company has joined hands with Paramount Pictures for this luxury watch that pays tribute to the Godfather. Although it took a year to get the license approved, the company was successful in launching it.
Jacob Arbo is known for creating over-the-top timepieces, but in his opera collection, Arbo was missing something. After this he used Swiss mechanical craft in this watch, to which music was also added. He said that I want to do something iconic in this moment and then ‘The Godfather’ came to my mind. Let us tell you that New York’s luxury watch and jewelry brand Jacob & Company is very popular.
Renowned Italian composer Nino Rota composed the theme song for The Godfather, for which he was awarded a Golden Globe-winning score. Arbo liked the idea of paying tribute to Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 Oscar-winning film and its music. Thus the opera Godfather Watch was born. Making this watch was not easy, as it required permission and license from Paramount Pictures.
A lot of research and hard work was put into making this watch. “Once I had the idea, I thought I should first contact Paramount Pictures and see what they had to say,” Jacob said. This process took about a year to complete. The watch was unveiled at the Baselworld Swiss Clock Fair in March 2018. Arbo explained that the agreement includes financial arrangements that work for both companies. In this watch, you can see ‘The Godfather’ lead actor Al Pacino sitting on a chair. Its look has been released on all social media platforms.
