Floyd Mayweather's primary chosen sport is boxing, but his other chosen sport has long been showing off his extreme wealth on social media. His latest exploit in the latter field is an impressive one even by his standards, as the boxer took to his Instagram account to show his followers what he calls "The Billionaire's Watch," an $18 million timepiece from Jacob & Co. that he has the pleasure of owning. And as the post shows, he seems pretty happy with both the watch itself and the jeweler he got it from:
"This my new timepiece, it's called "The Billionaire Watch". If you don't know about it, google Billionaire Watch. That's $18 Million on the price tag. I bought this watch from the best jeweler in the world, hands down @tadashi1980. He has better prices than any other jeweler that I've ever done business with ever and trust me, I've bought jewelry from every jeweler in NYC, Vegas, LA, Detroit, Houston and Miami. From here on out I'm only buying from @tadashi1980 fire your jeweler and hire @tadashi1980 Follow his page now."
@Tadashi1980 is the Instagram account of Tadashi Fukushima, a Japanese jeweler who evidently offers pretty good prices, at least for someone in Floyd's income bracket. As for the fabled Billionaire's Watch, its official name is actually The Billionaire, and it's one of a kind, plastered with 260 carats of "emerald-cut diamonds" and other stones on its shiny band of 18-karat white gold. Its minimal, spare functionality is a product of Jacob & Co.'s Skeleton Manual Winding Caliber movement — here's how Jacob & Co. itself describes the unique piece:
"Created as a unique piece, The Billionaire truly epitomizes the brand's passion for breaking boundaries. As the tourbillon caliber brings dynamism to its bejeweled enclosure, or the ballet of light of 260 carats of diamonds illuminates its exquisitely revealed heartbeat. The Billionaire is a dazzling representation of the courageous and rebellious Jacob & Co. spirit."
"Unique" appears to be literal in this case, so anybody who wants a Billionaire will have to somehow acquire it from Floyd Mayweather. But if that's not in the cards, you can get a close look at the watch in the video below:
