When Jacob & Co. created this dazzling masterpiece back in 2015 it was all about exclusivity. This was especially true when its price tag was revealed – a hefty 18,000,000. Many marveled at this glistening timepiece with its rectangular dial in 18-carat white gold case framed with 20 – out of a total of 239 – emerald-cut diamonds of approximately 3 carats each. But is not just about the bling. Take a look under the 12 o’clock marker for a skeletonized mainspring barrel and a tourbillon above 6 o’clock. This model also features Jacob & Co.’s exclusive JCAM09 skeleton manual winding caliber movement made up of 167 parts. It has a 72-hour power reserve. Smaller diamonds serve as hour markers and two bright blue steel hands indicate the time. The entire watch has almost 260 carats. And as far as limited items come, this is as rare as can be; in fact it’s the only one.
The Billionaire watch was recently purchased by professional boxer Floyd Mayweather.
