Floyd Mayweather is known for his extravagant spending, when your brand is TMT (The Money Team) you need the cash to match.
The retired boxer broke numerous pay-per-view records during his fighting days, and even made a billion dollars in prize money according to Forbes.
Perhaps the purchase of ‘The Billionaire’ is Floyd foreshadowing his next business success. The $18 million dollar watch, dubbed “The Billionare” by jeweller Jacob&Co is made of 18k white gold and comes complete with 260 carats of diamonds.
The watch face is flooded by diamonds and Jacob&Co say each diamond is around the 1.5 carat mark.
The timepiece is stunning, and of course Floyd had to upload a video to Instagram.

“This [is] my new timepiece, it’s called ‘The Billionaire Watch,’ Mayweather told his followers. “If you don’t know about it, Google Billionaire Watch. That’s $18 million on the price tag.”
There are rumors that Floyd signed a billion dollar contract with the UFC , but he seems to have shelved those plans to work on building his real-estate empire.
His latest project includes work on One Vanderbilt— a skyscraper currently under construction in New York City.
We don’t doubt that Floyd will recoup the $18 million he has spent on the watch by the end of the year.
