The Billionnaire by Jacob & Co.
Jacob & Co. is proud to unveil The Billionaire, the World-Premiere High Jewelry Master-Timepiece with 260 carats of emerald cut diamonds.
Luxury & precision
The $18 million “Billionaire” watch, introduced by Jacob & Co. during Baselworld 2015, officially became the most expensive timepiece combining a diamond-set timepiece with a tourbillon.
The Billionaire reignites the passion of the Roaring Twenties with a power of majestic proportions. Each perfectly matched emerald-cut diamond that composes The Billionaire’s exterior is mounted upon a setting of 18K white gold beads, each meticulously shaped into an inverted pyramid.
While the timepiece highlights the unparalleled gem-setting savoir-faire and finesse of Jacob & Co, the stones themselves are equally magnificent, with individual gems weighing up to a breathtaking three carats.
Measuring an imposing 58 by 47.5mm, The Billionaire adorns the wrist with unrivaled splendor.
Beneath the colossal World Record luxury of 260 carats of precious diamonds, The Billionaire showcases a degree of meticulous ingenuity synonymous with the tradition of the Jacob & Co. brand.
Sumptuous radiance and artisanal genius complement and elevate one another through every sparkling ray of light and each beat of the caliber’s exposed components. The apparent weightlessness of the skeletonized mechanism brings an appealing air of minimalism to a design that scintillates on every millimeter of its bracelet and 18K white gold case.
The sophisticated modernity of the JCAM09 hand-wound tourbillon caliber strikes a delightful contrast to the piece’s overall vintage design, which alludes to the jewelry craftsmanship practices of the 1920s. The skeletonized movement, which requires a remarkable amount of skill to construct due to the paring of elements to their most refined dimensions, boasts a number of superb finishes for an absolutely stunning effect.
From its hand-finished angles to its drawn flanks, the sand-blasted mechanism, equipped with a 72-hour power reserve, endows the timepiece with a beauty of detail befitting its exquisite exterior.
Created as a unique piece, The Billionaire truly epitomizes the brand’s passion for breaking boundaries. At its center, beneath gun-blue skeleton hands, the movement’s skeletonized mechanical architecture is a fitting testament to a story of unabashed luxury, each precise component beautifully showcased.
The Billionaire is a dazzling representation of the courageous and rebellious Jacob & Co. spirit. The Billionaire is available for $ 18,000,000. To discover more outstanding timepieces, visit our Watches category.
