After announcing the “Office Supplies” collaboration with Virgil Abloh, Jacob & Co. took to Instagram to show the two founders shaking hands. In the picture, Abloh can be seen wearing a very special watch — a 1-of-3 Jacob & Co. Caviar Flying Tourbillon in Ruby.

The watch lists at a staggering $1.8 million USD (one has been seen trading near the $950,000 USD mark) and features a full 47mm rose gold case that has invisibly-set rubies. The watch contains over 424 stones with a single rose-cut stone placed at the crown, giving the watch a total carat weight of 44.35 ct. At the six o’clock position is Jacob & Co.’s one-minute flying tourbillon that’s part of the manual-winding caliber JCBM05 movement. This watch has a power reserve of 100 hours.

Coming with a green alligator strap and gold tang buckle, Virgil Abloh couldn’t have worn a better statement watch to this partnership signing.
