Billionaire is born from the profound love Jacob Arabo has for diamonds. Of all gems, it holds a special place in his creative heart and mind. Since his earliest days as a jeweler, he has developed a passion for perfection, for the most lavish, large, white and pure of diamonds. And even more so for the rarest of them all: colored diamonds. Since the early days of Jacob & Co., Jacob Arabo has dreamt about a culminating creation where diamonds and watchmaking would peak together. In 2016, that intimate calling came to fruition with the release of a skeleton, tourbillon, one-of-one timepiece entirely set with very large diamonds: Billionaire. Billionaire Timeless Treasure is the first time this original accomplishment is topped. It took three and a half years to gather the gems that make Billionaire Timeless Treasure, and for good reason. It is entirely made of natural yellow diamonds: 425 Asscher-cut, IF to VVS yellow diamonds and 57 baguette-cut yellow diamonds set on its skeleton tourbillon movement. The total of 482 yellow diamonds weighs an incredible 216.9 ct., creating a divine glow for an eternal, one-off timepiece.

From a creative concept to design inspiration. To the first stroke of a pencil through hundreds of iterations. A timepiece like no other comes to life. Billionaire Timeless Treasure is a timepiece the likes of which has never been made: a literal treasure.


Billionaire Timeless Treasure is first and foremost a piece of high jewelry watchmaking. Its movement has been developed to serve the needs of the extensive gem-setting. It therefore stands out by its structure. Rarely has a skeleton movement been supported by bridges so thin. They're laid out in a geometric fashion, mimicking the facets of a diamond. What's more, the bridges of caliber JCAM39 are made of gold. It allows it to receive the 57 baguette-cut baguette yellow diamonds that unite it with the case. Using any material traditional to watchmaking would have been impossible: they're too hard for the setting process, which would have bent the bridges out of shape. Despite its extremely thin bones, caliber JCAM39 is fitted with a high-end tourbillon, vertically aligned with a large barrel. The energy it stores allows this hand-wound movement to beat for 72 hours, a record for a timepiece of this magnitude.

Yellow gold case and bracelet set with 425 Asscher-cut yellow diamonds (215 ct.) and 76 Kite-cut and Emerald-cut Tsavorites (3.59 ct.). Skeleton movement set with 57 baguette-cut yellow diamonds. One-minute tourbillon. 167 components. 72-hour power reserve.


Caliber JCAM39 is as thin and discrete as possible. It leaves diamonds front and center. In order to blend in the dense array of Asscher-cut gems, its delicate bridges are made of gold and set with 57 baguette-cut diamonds.


During a three-and-a-half year treasure hunt across the globe, Jacob & Co. has almost dried up the market for exceptionally large and high quality yellow diamonds to complete Billionaire Timeless Treasure. The first-ever colored Billionaire demanded absolute color uniformity, perfect quality consistency and the brightest of lights. It is one of the most exclusive, rare and exceptional timepieces ever crafted.
