Conor McGregor flashed his luxury watch worth €2.6 million and a ‘CMcG’ personalised shirt as he enjoyed a steak dinner at his pub The Black Forge.

Taking to social media, he captioned a video of his meal ‘Dublin Twelve, Miami, Ireland.’

The Jacob & Co. watch is just one of McGregor’s many pieces of expensive jewellery.

The watch, an Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette timepiece in 18k rose gold, is adorned with a 288-facet Jacob-cut diamond.

The Crumlin native purchased the watch, along with an Astronomia Tourbillon Casino watch which came with a cool €548,000 price tag, during a trip to Dubai in January 2021.

Speaking about McGregor’s visit to their store, a spokesperson for Jacob & Co. said: “We recently welcomed Conor McGregor to our boutique, where he purchased his latest Jacob & Co. timepiece, the Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette in Rose Gold.”

“A legend in the UFC and MMA, Conor McGregor also has great taste in watches. He already has several Jacob & Co. timepieces, and he just added this piece, which uses the Astronomia triple-axis tourbillon movement and adds baguette-cut white diamonds to the base dial and the lugs of the rose gold case. It looks great on him, and he can certainly pull it off.”

The MMA star was already the owner of a €1.8 million limited edition Jacob & Co. Rasputin Diamond Erotic Minute Repeater.

The face of the watch depicts an erotic scene of a man and woman engaging in a sexual act.

Conor McGregor has taken to Instagram numerous times since he bagged the wrist watches to show off the goods to his followers.

As someone who enjoys talking to his fans online, McGregor recently revealed how he will be immersing himself “in full training again” with “complete abstention from my wonderful creations of spirit and ale” as he prepares for his UFC comeback.

In a series of new pictures and a rambling message on Instagram the Dubliner made the most of his free time before he gets back to the day job.

On the night he shared snaps of his expensive watch, he also shared pictures on Instagram that showed him drinking pints and whiskey at his Dublin pub, the Black Forge Inn in Dublin 12.

He also posted a number of photos name-checking his niece Taylor and his mother Margaret's neighbours before thanking God in a bizarre post.

It read: "One half of the Dubai 2 in the house Saturday night but we are no 2, @blake__nm_! Uimhir a haon. We celebrate freedom here at The Black Forge Inn. Freedom and justice! Great to see Niamh in enjoying her Saturday night. My roofer O' Brien roofing also in, done (sic) a great job on my roof, it is now a full on bunker, like no other.”

"A blacked out bunker. 60 plus staff. The Black Forge Inn, Dublin Twelve. Stawl it (sic). Food and drinks and sparkling 24/7 365. Sound system blow your nickers (sic) off.”

"Taylor my niece also in enjoying her @forgedirishstout. Hers because it’s hers when it hits. Make no mistake. This a kingdom and I’m King. Tay 850 a week beep new jeep. Rangey. Eyesight 20/10 vision. Because 2020 is done. It’s not 2020 no more. Its not what it was no more, you get me? I love you, my Taylor.”

"My mother's home Pearse Street also in the house loving it and enjoying them selves. Pearse Street loves it. We love Pearse Street! My pub The Black Forge Inn is for Pearse Street also, many may not know fully.”

"The name of my snug is Christy’s Snug. Engraved! After my Grandfather. Yup Jakes! Christy ‘Jakes’ Moore. Pearse Street. My mother's, mad, loving father. We miss but we know where you are granda. Here at this bar hahahaa. Eating and drinking on the gaff,” the bizarre rant continued.

"Whiskey is a mad man’s drink my mother always says hahahaha who’s runs it ma? Thanks for the early house my Grandfather! And the whiskey. And the gargle. Five more minutes, Ma. My Mother's blood line! The Moores.”

"I have spirits around this whole premise(s) watching over every single patron that enters. Support. Protection. Guidance. Spiritual connection from above. Chaos. Ya ya yaaaaa hahahahaha, I don’t just make spirits, I have spirits! Ghosts on a string.”

"What a pub I'm after making hahahahahahaaj ah stop lord have mercy father save my soul, give me two and a double and use the thing with the bubble, back us all our father, God Jesus Christ. Please, thank you! We deserve the best! God, we deserve this, thank you, God has our back! 100pc.”

A number of McGregor's Instagram followers expressed some confusion with one writing: "I bet he wrote this out last night but decided to save it to see if he felt the same way in the morning before posting it. Clearly the whiskey hasn’t worn off yet it still makes sense to him to share this."
