Aside from the all the bling and glamour, one of the major selling points is the ease in which the bezels and bands can be changed without the help of a jeweler. Most Jacob Co watches come with 4 bands so they can be switched out to match the outfit or occasion. This unique watch has a main dial set to ones own local time and 4 small dials showing the time in New York, LA, Tokyo and Paris.

Jacob Arabo said that the idea of «multiple time zone» watch occurred to him when he was a teenager.  When traveling, he noticed that the clocks in banks and at railway stations showed different time zones. He recollected this observation owing to the numerous Jacob & Co customers who were constantly moving between time zones. «Whomever you ask, today they are in London, and tomorrow in Tokyo, and then they are going to LA». Thus the jeweler responded to the celebrity needs and designed a watch which could display various time zones, while being a luxury fashion accessory and a piece of jewelry. Naturally, the star customers have quickly made Jacob & Co watches an international bestseller.  

The Jacob and Co watch case is made in from stainless steel, to gold, and even platinum. It has a stainless steel bezel and can be replaced with a smooth gold bezel, and a totally «iced out» bling bling diamond bezel totaling 3.25 carats! They come with 4 watch bands in yellow, black, blue, red, and yellow which can be switched out on the fly without having to use a single tool. These amazing features found on the Jacob & Co watch give complete flexibility to your everyday fashions. As a matter of fact, this matches the motto of the brand perfectly, making people happy.
