"In the universe of chiming/musical watches at Jacob & Co., the minute repeater first appeared in the Palatial collection and in the Twin Turbo and Twin Turbo Furious. Then, Jacob & Co. decided to produce a watch that played music, and the Opera Collection was born. The 49mm Opera is the first luxury timepiece to combine a high watchmaking triple-axis tourbillon movement with a two-comb, two-cylinder Swiss music box. The Opera Godfather took the Opera one step farther, introducing the theme music from The Godfather, followed by the Opera Scarface with music from the movie.
Never a company to leave well enough alone, Jacob & Co. designers got to thinking - why not do both? That’s when Jacob & Co. introduced the Grand Complication Opera Godfather Minute Repeater.
Jacob & Co. has the exclusive rights, in partnership with Paramount Pictures, to use The Godfather logo and the haunting melody in this amazing timepiece. In addition, a stylized image of Marlon Brando as Don Corleone, exclusive to the Opera Godfather Minute Repeater, is superimposed on an 18K gold and black-lacquered piano.
The Opera Godfather Minute Repeater honors this spectacular movie with its unique styling, its combination of complications, and its ability to play the theme music from The Godfather on demand.
