Jacob & Co.

Drake’s new $620,000 Jacob & Co watch does a lot more than simply tell the time — it features a fully functional roulette wheel. Drake posted pictures from the watchmakers’ HQ on his IG feed and, in turn, the brand shared a detailed look at the musician’s wild new timepiece.

The watch is called the Astronomia Casino, which features a four-arm setup. The first arm accommodates a ceramic ball, another contains the double-axis tourbillon, a third is for the Roman numeral time display, and the fourth sits on top with 1ct 288-facet Jacob-cut diamond, which, according to the brand’s Instagram caption, turns on itself in 30 seconds.

Each arm rotates around the face in a complicated movement spanning 10 minutes in total. And while it’s intricate, even for the 6 God’s standards, the Astronomia Casino is par for the course for Jacob & Co. In the past, the Manhattan-based wristwatch retailer has produced equally complex timepieces inspired by excavator trucks and oil pumps, and even one that plays the entire theme tune of The Godfather.
