Every now and then, retired boxing superstar Floyd 'Money' Mayweather makes headlines for his rather lavish way of life.
The undefeated former mult-time world champion has take his 'Money' monicker and turned into somewhat a lifestyle.
On this episode of "Lifestyles of The Rich and Floyd Mayweather Jr.", we take a look at his latest, inexplicably expensive, and arguably unnecessary purchase.
Take a gander at the so-called "The Billionaire Watch"
Already sounds expensive?
Here's how it looks:
This my new timepiece, it's called "The Billionaire Watch". If you don't know about it, google Billionaire Watch. That's $18 Million on the price tag. I bought this watch from the best jeweler in the world, hands down @tadashi1980. He has better prices than any other jeweler that I’ve ever done business with ever and trust me, I’ve bought jewelry from every jeweler in NYC, Vegas, LA, Detroit, Houston and Miami. From here on out I’m only buying from @tadashi1980 fire your jeweler and hire @tadashi1980 Follow his page now.
As Floyd says on his post, the watch, officially known as "The Billionaire" is a unique timepiece from world-famous jewellry and timepiece retailer Jacob & Co, and bought by Mayweather from Japanese jeweller Tadashi Fukushima.
For how much, you ask? A cool 18-million dollars.
That's nearly a billion pesos. (P961,281,000.00 to be exact, in today's exchange rate.)
Let that sink in for a bit. Go take a look at it again, if you want.
According to the Jacob & Co. page for the watch, it's 18K white gold, 260-carats of emerald-cut diamonds, and other, very, very expensive materials.
Never change, Floyd. Never change.
