The original Ashoka diamond came to life hundreds of years ago as a breathtaking 41.37 carat D Flawless gem. Over the centuries this mystical, flawless diamond, said to have the ability to banish sorrow, has shared its remarkable power and beauty with monarchs, movie stars and captains of industry.
William Goldberg was more than merely dazzled by the original Ashoka diamond. He was inspired by it and studied its every facet. The elegant, elongated shape and precisely rounded corners. The way it captured the light, then transformed and released it with incredible energy. Ultimately, it served as inspiration for a cut so unique and distinctive, it was granted its very own patent.
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.
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. The Billionaire Ashoka from Jacob & Co. was created to bring pure joy.
