One of the most exciting reality shows that ever hit primetime television is Dancing with the Stars. The show is based on UK’s Strictly Come Dancing, and is broadcasted by the ABC Channel. The dance competition TV show premiered in 2005 and is now on its 16th season. The most renowned professional dancers from around the globe are paired with celebrities in showbiz, sports, music, politics, fashion, and even important personalities from the science and technology community. The long-running TV show is hosted by Emmy winner Tom Bergeron who is joined by the lovely co-hosts like Lisa Canning for its first seasons, Samantha Harris for seasons 2 to 9, and Brooke Burke Charvet from season 10 until its current season.
In Dancing with the Stars, celebrity pairs which consist of a professional dancer and a celebrity perform a dance number each week and compete against one another. Celebrity participants who perform well move along closer to the finals, while the pair with the lowest scores from judges as well as the audience is eliminated each week. The last three pairs then compete against each other for the title of Dancing with the Stars season champion.
One of the more famous celebrity professional dancers in the hit show is Maksim Chmerkovskiy, a Ukrainian-born Latin ballroom dancer. Since his first appearance during the second season of the show, Maksim and his partners Laila Ali, Mel B, Erin Andrews, and Kirstie Alley were able to make it to the top 3 spot for a total of four times. His charm and innate talent in his craft has made him a favorite among judges and audience alike.
On February 20th of this year, Maksim Chmerkovskiy was spotted at Jacob Arabo’s flagship store in Manhattan. He visited Jacob & Co. boutique with his equally successful champion dancer brother, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and purchased several opulent watches designed by the famed New York jewelry designer, Jacob Arabo.
Maksim picked out a beautiful timepiece from Jacob Arabo’s Grand Collection. The word-class brand is known as the producer of one of the most iconic timepieces of all time – the Five Time Zone watches. Similarly to the Five Time Zone watches, the Gran Collection showcases four cities from around the globe and their respective local times along with the dial of the same demention for the local time. These cities are considered global hubs as they are popular for their 24-hour commerce, interesting culture and a way of life. The new finished design is expressed in the shape of a pentagon. Unusual and distinct as the Grand Collection watches may appear, they are considered by art collectors and watch enthusiasts as exceptional and cutting edge. The watches included in this Jacob Arabo’s collection retail at $6,800.
Jacob & Co. founder Jacob Arabo has always been regarded as a talented and skilled designer of timepieces and jewelry to the stars. His unending passion for his craft and the quality of his creations were able to produce him a list of high-profile clients including Valentino, Madonna, Morena Baccarin, Sir Elton John, Tom Cruise, and Brad Pitt.
