Jacob came to the USA from the former USSR because his family wanted a better life. His father and mother emigrated to the USA with Jacob and his four sisters with nothing but what they could carry, and Jacob soon set out to make the most of this opportunity.
Jacob began his journey in the world of fine jewelry and timepieces as an apprentice with a watchmaker that first summer in America, which is where he forged his fascination with timepieces.
o make the impossible a reality. Jacob Arabo lives to create timepieces and jewelry that the world has never seen. Take the Astronomia Collection as an example — a galaxy on the wrist, many Swiss watchmakers saw this idea as “Impossible.” Mr. Arabo took up the challenge and made this timepiece, and its many iterations, a reality… and a success.
Jacob is not content making hundreds of the same watches and jewelry. He lives to create and innovate, always working on the next ground-breaking, revolution idea. Jacob & Co. is a different kind of watch company, combining the daring and entrepreneurial spirit of America with the high watchmaking and high jewelry making of Switzerland. With a foot in both worlds, Mr. Arabo and his company are dedicated to shaking up the status quo.
