JACOB & CO IS LAUNCHING THE FIRST EVER NFT WATCH
Luxury jewelry and watchmaking brand Jacob & Co. has announced that it was teaming up with NFT platform ArtGrails to release the world’s first NFT timepiece ...
We've had a house and artwork now NFT's have branched into luxury accessories with the Jacob & Co NFT SF24 Tourbillon. Based on the Epic SF24, a physical world time travel watch with an innovative split-flap that displays 24 cities around the world, the new NFT version displays the names of 10 cryptocurrencies: NFT, Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Fantom (FTM), Tether (USDT), Cardano (ADA), Stellar (XLM), Binance Coin (BNB), Polkadot (DOT), Ripple (XRP).
Jacob & Co.’s CEO Benjamin Arabov explained: “My hope is for Jacob & Co. to become the first luxury brand to launch a successful NFT and pave the way for other luxury brands to start launching products & collections through NFT. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ NFTs will have a place in the watches and luxury world, but ‘when.’ For Jacob & Co., the ‘when’ is now, and we are prepared to pioneer this shift.”
