The privately held jewelry and wristwatch retailer Jacob & Co., founded in 1986 by diamond designer Jacob Arabo, is once again entering the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with the release of a new NFT and physical watch collection.
Dubbed Astronomia Metaverso, this NFT collection was designed in collaboration with UNXD, an NFT marketplace for luxury and culture, where the NFTs will go on sale.
The NFTs in the collection are all named after planets in the solar system (except for Pluto).
Jacob Arabo, founder and chairman of Jacob & Co., designed each watch in the collection. It features eight distinct designs (one for each planet), with both digital and physical versions.
NFT ALERT: This watch design was inspired by Mars.— Jacob&Co (@_Jacobandco) March 23, 2022
Mars is man’s future.
This watch features a digital design along with a physical watch that will only ever be manufactured once.
