automaton action Derrick pumps, also known in petroleum language terms as jacks, horseheads, and rocking horses, are used to mechanically extract oil from underground wells.

The watch may replicate the mechanism and action of an oil pump, but its power is green. Just as Pierre Jaquet Droz's revolutionary automatons in the 18th century wowed kings and queens with their inexplicably magical movements, so the booms on the oil pumps are powered by the automata's traditional mechanics— — An automatically operated machine that executes a predetermined sequence of motions. A pusher on the case strap at 2 o'clock not only activates the derricks on the dial, it also charges the dedicated power reserve and keeps them going – you can see it in the video at the top of this article.
The largest of the two derricks in the oil pump foreground has a long rod attached to its head pumping oil up and down in the gold tank below, while a counterweight at the other end of the beam rotates counterclockwise at 9 o'clock and Minute dial.

Hours and minutes on an anthracite ring at 9 o'clock with golden Arabic numerals. If you look closely, you can see how two gold tubes with silver joints and red wheels that control the flow wind their way behind the hour and minute dials before disappearing into the movement. Representing the dividing line between land and subterranean structures, a central platform on the dial supports a derrick and an oil pressure gauge that doubles as a power reserve indicator. A polished rod attached to the head of the derrick runs across the platform and through a rose gold reservoir shaped like a barrel that bears the brand name and a red warning sign alerting to the presence of flammable materials. The large aperture at 6 o'clock, extending all the way to the caseback, is Jacob & Co's stage. The iconic biaxial tourbillon. To double the viewing pleasure, the first tourbillon completes a lap in 60 seconds, the second in 2.5 minutes.

While parts of it can be glimpsed through the grille on the dial, most of the movement is concealed behind a rose gold caseback with two extractable bows for winding and setting the time. Of course, the finishing of the shot-peened and black PVD-coated bridges and bridges, the circular graining on the barrel and the hand-beveled mirror-polished edges is of the highest order.replica mens watch
thoughts As with other Jacob & Co. watches, reactions are always extreme, and not everyone is going to appreciate the extravagance or horological fireworks on board. But that's the point: These watches aren't for everyone. They're expensive, extravagant, fun marvels designed to impress. I was really impressed with the way Jacob & Co. breathed life into a potentially mundane subject like an oil rig. Extraordinary detail, miniaturization and above all animation effects are sure to impress. While it's not a model I'd choose for myself - the Astronomia Tourbillon Typhoon has my name on it - I know plenty of people will succumb to the sheer spectacle and beautifully rendered scenery of the Oil Pump.replica Ulysse Nardin Perpetual Calendars
