Virgil Abloh and Jacob & Co. announced their "Office Supplies" jewelry collaboration, yesterday. At the unveiling, however, Abloh flexed a wild and super-rare watch that really stole the show. Pictured shaking hands with the diamond designer Jacob Arabo, Abloh gave us a glimpse of a remarkable Jacob & Co. Caviar Flying Tourbillon in ruby.
The piece costs a staggering $1.5 million and is one of three ever made. The face is set with 424 baguette-cut rubies, with a single rose-cut stone placed at the crown and features a full 47mm rose gold case. The timepiece boasts a staggering total carat weight of 44.35 ct. Furthermore, the watch's ruby dial is only interrupted by Jacob & Co.’s signature one-minute flying tourbillon at the six o'clock mark.
The striking ruby face pairs with a green alligator strap and gold tang buckle, making a salient statement piece. Virgil Abloh wore the luxe timepiece with a paired-down black hoodie and cap.
