Jacob & Co. is featuring William Goldberg’s proprietary ASHOKA® diamonds in the spectacular new Billionaire ASHOKA® timepiece. It is a pièce unique, and only one will ever be made.
The entirety of the watch, outside of the movement, is covered in ASHOKA® diamonds, including the case, lugs, bezel, bracelet and clasp, with the exception of the rose-cut white diamond crown. The total carat weight of this stunningly unique piece is over 189 carats.
With a rectangular shape, rounded corners, and 62 precisely-cut facets (more than the 57 facets of a round diamond), the ASHOKA® is quite rare. Less than one percent of all rough diamonds even possess the potential to become an ASHOKA® - making the Billionaire ASHOKA® an extraordinarily special piece.
The white gold case of the Billionaire ASHOKA® measures 53x40mm and houses a skeletonized tourbillon movement, exclusive to Jacob & Co. Every surface is chamfered, polished and finished to perfection. This manual-wind, almost see-through timepiece has an impressive power reserve of 72 hours.
Legend has it the original Ashoka diamond had the power to "banish sorrow." The Billionaire ASHOKA® from Jacob & Co. was created to bring joy.
