Surreal watchmaker Jacob & Co has etched a mark in history for creating the most revolutionary timepieces and exquisite jewelry that have captivated celebrities. They are now making another jaw-dropping marvel in the form of its first boutique in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The doors of the largest Jacob & Co store in the world opened with a limited-edition Cristiano Ronaldo-themed CR7 collection to celebrate the occasion. Located on Olaya Main Street at Akariya Plaza in Riyadh, the store celebrates the Portuguese football legend Ronaldo, the new star of Riyadh’s Al-Nassr club and a long-time friend and ambassador of Jacob & Co.
The luxury watchmaker also made his historical move to Saudi Arabia special with an incredible gift- a $780,000 Saudi-themed Jacob & Co watch. “We are thrilled to open our flagship boutique in KSA and to bring our unique products and designs to the wonderful people of Saudi Arabia,” said Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co.
“We have always been inspired by the warmth, creativity, and innovation of Saudi Arabia and are excited to be entering the Kingdom now and grow to become a part of, and contribute to, the kingdom’s development. The Saudi people have a discerning eye for luxury and quality and as we open the doors to our first boutique in Riyadh, we are ready to deliver beyond expectations.”
Jacob & Co joined hands with Burj Binghatti to construct Dubai’s ultra-luxurious and newest skyscraper, dubbed the Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences. This 100-story edifice solidifies the Jacob & Co. name in the Middle East along with their massive new store.
