The Most Expensive Watches in the WorldJuly 19, 2013
The innovation shown in the development over luxury watches throughout the years has attracted a number of collectors. This expensive hobby provides many rewards. Some of the most expensive watches are found in collections of billionaires and millionaires. Here are the watches topping the list.
Chopard’s $25 million Watch
If you thought a $25,000 watch was an expensive timepiece, you should consider a look at this $25 million watch. This timepiece is a bit gaudy, but provides diamonds totaling over 200 carats including a 15-carat pink diamond, 11-carat white diamond and 12-carate blue diamond. All the diamonds on this watch make it a little difficult to actually see the face of the timepiece, but nobody will miss this expensive beauty if it’s on your wrist.
Patek Philippe’s Supercomplication
At $11 million, this pocket watch tops the list of expensive watches. It was created for Henry Graves, Jr. in 1932. The beautiful yellow-gold pocket watch was the most expensive in the world in 1999. It sold for $11 million at an auction, but has since been passed by the Chopard watch.
Patek Philippe’s Platinum World Time
Another ultra-expensive choice from Patek Philippe, this timepiece sold for a mere $4 million at auction in 2002. Most experts believe it’s the only one of its kind and it’s known as the most expensive wristwatch across the globe. Of course, not everybody can own a $4 million watch, but Patek Philippe does provide many other watches starting at $20,000.
Vacherin Constantin’s Tour de I’lle
This Swiss watch was created to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Vacherin Constantin in 2005. It’s worth $1.5 million and took over 10,000 hours to create. Only seven of these watches were created, which adds to the value and prestige. The watch includes two faces, sunset time, a perpetual calendar, a minute repeater and many other great features.
