TOP 5 EXPENSIVE WATCHES IN THE WORLD

If the previous pieces stood out by the rarity of the components this one focuses on only 1 material: Diamonds! and a lot of them!
But just how many diamonds can one manufacturer put on a wristwatch?
Hublot answered that question with: as many, we can fit in there! They ended up with 1280 diamonds that have at least 3 carats each.
It took over 1 full year just to find the diamonds and bring them to the headquarters from all corners of the earth but the end result was fully worth it!
Every single stone was cut by a well-renowned jeweller from New York, with over 40 years of experience, in order to make sure each bears the same cut signature.

PATEK PHILIPPE – HENRY GRAVES – POCKET WATCH

It used to be the most expensive pocket watch the world had ever seen!
It was sold for $11 Million back in 1999 if we adjust for inflation and the economic environment + its novelty factor this piece could easily go for over $15 Million if it was to be resold.
Made in 1933 for banker Henry Graves by Patek Philippe himself, it took over 5 years to complete!
It happens to be one of the most complicated and complex pockets watches in the world with over 24 functions!

CHOPARD 201-CARAT WATCH

TOP 5 EXPENSIVE WATCHES IN THE WORLD

With 874 rare diamonds, the Chopard 201-carat watch used to be the world’s most expensive watch and still is the highest-priced jewellery watch out on the market!
Sold in the year 2000 for this unbelievable amount of $25 million it made the front page of every luxury publication at the time.
Contrary to the $5 million Hublot we’ve talked about earlier, the stones don’t form any sort of pattern or design which leads us to the following question:
Why would you wear something so bulky? and for some people unappealing. It wasn’t just some publicity stunt Chopard pulled off, but in my opinion, it lacks a certain degree of finesse which I would expect from them.
With all that considered we still have to bow our heads to the masterpiece created and take a closer look and see the detail level of work put into the ultimate jewellery.
It features a very small display and such a wide variety of diamonds that even at close inspection it is very likely for you to miss some.
The specifications for a number of the diamonds are as follows:
– 1 heart-shaped diamond, natural Fancy Pink, Internally Flawless, 15.37 carats.
– 1 heart-shaped diamond, natural Fancy Blue, VS2, 12.79 carats.
– 1 heart-shaped diamond, D colour, Flawless, 11.36 carats.
– 3 pear-shaped diamonds, natural Fancy Intense Yellow, 8.45 carats total.
– 26 pear-shaped diamonds, natural Fancy Intense Yellow, 17.07 carats total.
– 48 round diamonds, natural Fancy Yellow, 8.81 carats total.
– 260 pear-shaped diamonds, all D colour, Flawless, 60.94 carats total.
– 91 round diamonds, D colour, Flawless, 10.29 carats total.
– 443 FC diamonds, natural Fancy Intense Yellow, 4.95 carats total.

Here we are! The most expensive watch in the world of 2016 is priced at $30.000.000.
As we’ve been teasing you so far it is a case watch, not a wristwatch.
So what makes this watch so costly?
It was commissioned by an alleged lover of Marie Antoinette, the French queen.
Work on the watch began in 1782 by Abraham-Louis Breguet and was finished in 1827 by his son, 4 years after his death.
The result, an amazing piece of design, class and technology containing every function that was possible at that time.
