Anyone who knows anything about Floyd Mayweather knows he spends money like a true baller. When the undefeated champion isn’t buying planes or strip clubs, he’s taking trips around the world and dropping millions in cash on jewellery and watches. Yet even with all that extravagance preceding him, it’s hard not to be impressed with Mayweather’s latest acquisition: “The Billionaire Watch” from Jacob & Co.

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.
First unveiled at Baselworld in 2015, “The Billionaire Watch” represents a collaboration between Jacob Arabo and Italian magnate Flavio Briatore. True to its name, the piece is simply exploding with opulence. Specifically, the watch is set with 260 karats of emerald-cut diamonds in an inverted pyramid style, with individual stones weighing up to 3 karats each.
To present his latest trophy, Mayweather posted a brief video on Instagram. He also gave a shout out to Tadashi Fukushima, saying that he’ll be buying all his jewellery from Fukushima from here on out. One must assume that such high profile praise earned Mayweather a significant discount on the watch. On the other hand, given what we know about Mayweather, he might have paid the full asking price just for bragging rights.
