Dubai real estate company Binghatti is set to team up with watch manufacturer Jacob & Co. to create ‘Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences’ which promises to break world records.


This unique partnership brings together the rich heritage and iconic architectural and horological codes of these two brands to introduce an ultra-luxury Dubai skyscraper.


The announcement will be marked with an exclusive event on November 16th to launch the project.


Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences coins a new term in upper-crust real estate: hypertower. Opening a new era in uber-luxury living, this unparalleled skyscraper aims to set a record as one of the tallest residential constructions in the world.



The proposed design comprises over 100 stories that are made of lavish two-bedroom and three-bedroom residences and the building features unique designs co-signed by and co-designed in the recognizable style of watchmaking and jewellery brand Jacob & Co and leading Dubai-based developer Binghatti.


The building will include multiple levels dedicated to amenities including an infinity pool overlooking the entire Dubai skyline, a luxury spa and a gymnasium. The hypertower also houses a dedicated concierge team, offering à la carte services such as daycare, bodyguard, chauffeur and private chef.


Today marks the significant partnership of two like-minded brands, both on an ever-striving pursuit of absolute elegance. Both our brands are born from the sheer desire to achieve what breaks boundaries. What Binghatti has done in real estate, by creating a brand through a distinct design philosophy and architectural identity is very similar to what Jacob & Co has done in the world of jewellery and horology”, says Muhammad Binghatti, CEO & Head of Architecture of Binghatti.



We took inspiration from the complex horological movements that beat in Jacob & Co timepieces and we integrated them into the key elements of the tower. The diamond-shaped spires sitting at the peak of the tower are reminiscent of an actual crown, an ornament of unique finesse inspired by the design of Jacob & Co’s finely cut gems. This is the apex of the luxury narrative in this evocative construction, a signature feature that add further grandeur to the city’s skyline.” adds Muhammad Binghatti.


Drawing inspiration from horological and high jewellery aesthetics, Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co. Residences’ design is reminiscent of the baguette-cut gems Jacob & Co is renowned for. Entry-level residences will consist of two collections: The Sapphire Suite Collection consisting of two-bedroom residential units, and The Emerald Suite Collection comprised of three-bedroom units.



The top of Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences harbours five of the most luxurious and exclusive penthouses in Dubai. Floating on top of the world, they offer boundless views of the city’s skyline, including downtown and the Dubai Water Canal. “Inspired by our high watchmaking collections, these penthouses will consist of three types, each named after our flagship Jacob & Co timepieces Fleurs De Jardin, Astronomia and Billionaire. The interior design of the penthouse collection will be directly inspired by their unique aesthetics. As suggested by the name, the Billionaire Penthouse is the hyper tower’s jewel in the crown.” says Jacob Arabo, Chairman and Creative Director of Jacob & Co.


All interested parties will have the opportunity to register during the event that will be held on November 16th in Dubai. Such interested parties are to undergo a prequalification process to evaluate eligibility in this ultra-exclusive, invitation-only, jewel of a dwelling.
