Cristiano Ronaldo and Jacob & Co. have a long history of collaboration. The strong relationship was on display once more when Jacob Arabo, the founder of the brand, personally delivered a new watch to the Al-Nassr superstar.
Jacob Arabo upload a video on Instagram with the caption: “I was in the neighborhood so I decided to personally deliver a $1.3M watch for the one and only @cristiano.” The watch in the video was the lavish Twin Turbo Furious. The original variant of this watch was released back in 2016. The Twin Turbo Furious variant was launched in 2018.
The 2018 variant incorporates a mono-pusher chronograph and a time difference calculator to the original watch, adding to the value of the overall piece. The watch has a 57 mm face and the bezels are made from 18-karat white gold. There are also 344 baguette-cut white diamonds in the watch, which justify the seven-figure price tag of the watch.

This new timepiece will be one of the most expensive pieces within the luxurious watch collection of the highest-paid athlete. In the collection, Ronaldo also has a bespoke Girard-Perregaux, a $700,000 Brilliant Flying Tourbillon and the most expensive Rolex ever produced.
This new timepiece serves as another incident when the Portuguese is used by Jacob Arabo for his brand. The brand previously collaborated for a collection dedicated to his career. Ronaldo was also present for Jacob & Co. when they recently opened its biggest store in Saudi Arabia.
Floyd Mayweather’s 18 million watch by Jacob & Co.
The new piece gifted to Ronaldo by Jacob Arabo is impressive but it is nothing in front of the “Billionaire” piece, the brand produced back in 2015. The brand introduced the watch to the world eight years ago. The watch was created in connection with Flavio Briatore and Arabo’s Billionaire Lifestyle SARL company.
The extravagant timepiece cost 18 Million USD when Mayweather purchased it back in 2018. The Billionaire has 260 carats of emerald-cut diamonds. The brand, Jacob & Co. is known for its extravagant pieces but this Billionaire piece has to be the crown jewel for the brand.

Floyd Mayweather and his fans would not care about the specifications of the watch and its features. They would only care about the price tag, which is indeed a head-turner. Even though there is a long history of Jacob & Co. with Cristiano Ronaldo, it is hard to argue that the new watch of Cristiano Ronaldo by the luxurious brand looks cheap as compared to the Billionaire piece of Floyd Mayweather.
