Jacob & Co Has Unveiled New $18 Million Watch

Apple is not the only company making really expensive watches.

Jacob & Co

Famed jewelers to the wealthy Jacob & Co has unveiled a new “Billionaire” watch which costs $18 million. It was unveiled at the BaselWorld 2015 exposition held this week in Switzerland.

No The Billionaire does not function like a new Apple Smart Watch.

No it does not offer the user the accurate times in cities all over the world, nor a digital display, alarm, stopwatch, the date or anything else that a simple Casio will give you.

So why would a super-rich person want to pay $18 million for it, you might ask. Because it costs $18 million.

The Billionaire offers the exclusive Jacob & Co. skeleton manual winding caliberJCAM09 with Tourbillon Dimensions: 40.05mm X 31.67mm; 5.70mm Height. It has 167 components, a 72-hours power reserve and a frequency of 21’600vib/h (3 Hz); 19 jewels. The watch also has hand-angled, sand-blasted finishing with a drawn flank.
