Jay-Z is certainly a man of taste when it comes to watches – the rapper, songwriter and producer owns several rare and one-of-a-kind expensive timepieces that are worth millions.
Though as of this week, Jay-Z has one less in his impressive collection as his diamond-studded Jacob & Co watch has sold for a staggering $1.5 million at a casino night and auction, which was held to benefit his Reform Alliance charity at Atlantic City’s Ocean Casino Resort.
Dubbed the Caviar Tourbillon World Timer, Jay-Z originally bought the 47.5mm watch for $900k two decades ago.
Crafted from 18 carat white gold, the sparkling dial features 204 baguette diamonds that total 5.46 carats. A further 294 baguette diamonds totaling 30.06 carats span the watches bezel, case and bracelet.
According to a caption on the official Jacob & Co Instagram, the watch is a symbol of the brand and Jay-Z’s enduring friendship and a powerful statement for the cause.
