Breaking news for anyone tracking celebrity wristwear and jewel heists worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster—Usher is officially the king of bling at this year’s Met Gala! Yes, you read that right. The R&B legend was spotted flaunting the jaw-dropping, wallet-emptying Jacob & Co. Billionaire III’s ‘Rubies’ watch. If you haven’t seen it, imagine a watch so bedazzled that even sunlight might need sunglasses around it.

Now, let’s talk specs because, with this watch, you’re not just buying something to tell you you’re late. The Billionaire III boasts a total of 147.65 carats. That’s right, it’s not just a watch; it’s practically a portable ruby mine. And not just any rubies—these are unheated, which in the gem world is like saying you’ve got a dinosaur in your backyard and yes, it’s alive. The fact that they are all-natural and have no heat means you’re literally wearing geological history on your wrist.

It took the folks at Jacob & Co. two years to gather all 714 rubies used in this piece. To put that in perspective, that’s longer than many of Hollywood’s marriages! After collecting these gemological VIPs, they spent another year cutting and setting them. Each ruby was carefully cut into either emerald or baguette shapes, because, obviously, when you spend a year on a watch, you don’t just slap it together.

Wearing this watch to the Met Gala is a power move reminiscent of walking into a Vegas casino and putting your entire net worth on red. Usher, a master of smooth moves and smoother vocals, showed up with enough carats on his wrist to start a rabbit farm. And let’s be real, nothing says “I’ve arrived” quite like accessorizing with something that requires its own security detail.

The Billionaire III isn’t just a timepiece; it’s a statement. It tells the time, sure, but what it’s really saying is, “I’m Usher, and my watch is probably worth more than the budget of the music video you’re shooting on your iPhone right now.”

In conclusion, if Usher’s Met Gala appearance teaches us anything, it’s that timing is everything—especially when your watch is a treasure trove of the world’s finest rubies. So, next time you check your wrist for the time, just remember, somewhere out there, Usher is checking his, and it’s probably telling him it’s time to shine. Literally.
