Most likely, like me, you are wearing a $50, 100 or even maybe a $200 watch on your wrist. I mean paying more for something that tells time? Seems a bit off. Specially now a days when your smartphone is constantly remaining you what time it is.
But still, expensive watch buying is in an all time high, pretty much thanks to the internet.
Here’s a list of the Top 10 Most Expensive Watches of All Time. Don’t feel bad though, there’s plenty to choose from say $100 up to $2000. So enjoy!
1. The Hublot Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie (1 million)
There are only 8 of these beauties in the whole world, unique in their million-dollar listing by the 1,185 baguette diamonds smothering every inch. The diamonds took fifteen expert watchmakers over eighteen hundred hours to arrange. Eighteen hundred hours sure goes by quickly on a diamond watch, however.
2. Lamborghini Spyder Watch (2,200)
Would you like a Lamborghini watch to go with that Lamborghini car? While technically not the same brand (Tonino Lamborghini is the proud maker of this timepiece), both are alike in style, class, and price. This Spyder watch, made of red crocodile patterned leather, will set you back $2,200.00.
3. Yellow Gold Calibre 89 Patek Phillippe (5.12 million)
This open face watch, made in 1989 in Geneva for the 150th anniversary of the Patek Phillippe company, used to be owned by an unnamed “Royal family,” says the auction description. It’s being sold at the royal price of $5,120,000.
4. Patek Phillippe Platinum and Diamond Wristwatch (4.5 million)
This art-deco wristwatch comes with the original leather case, is self-winding and has a yearly calendar. Harold Hughes would envy you in this classic piece.
5. de Grisogono – Meccanico dG S25D ($590,000)
This half a million dollar watch is unique because it has three types of diamonds: baguette diamonds, black pavé diamonds and white pavé diamonds. If that wasn’t enough, it also boasts 18 carats of gold and an additional 126 baguette-cut white diamonds. It takes a real man to wear that many diamonds.
