News Buying Guide Brands Events About Us The most expensive watches in the world By Charlie Thomas

February 4, 2015

Editors Pick / Features

Expense is a subjective notion. For one person, a £1000 watch might be completely out of reach, whereas for another, it could be a spare of the moment impulse buy. With these watches though, there’s no doubt for anyone that they are pricy, as each and every one of them costs more than a small mansion. For your hard earned cash though, you’ll get the pleasure of wearing a timepiece constructed from the finest materials known to man, by some of the world’s most skilled craftsmen. Here are the most expensive watches in the world.

 

VACHERON CONSTANTIN TOUR DE L’ILE, $1.5m

Vacheron Constantin are almost unbeatable when it comes to creating ultra-elegant watches, with simple, highly legible faces. What’s immediately noticeable, even in their simplest of watches, is the attention to detail and the quality of finish, and it is this notion that’s prevalent with the Tour de L’ille. It features two faces on the front and back, which is necessary to house the watch’s many complications including a second time zone, perpetual calendar and sunset time indicator.

RICHARD MILLE RM 56-02, $2m

Richard Mille are famed for creating some truly exotic watches, whether in their signature tonneau-shaped case or a more traditional round case. This is their most exuberant creation yet though and, with a case made entirely from sapphire, also their most expensive. Housed within the see-through exterior is the brand’s utterly mesmerising, and truly innovative cable-and-pulley-system movement, too.

A. LANGE & SOHNE GRAND COMPLICATION, $2.49m

Forget the Apple Watch. This is what we like to call a real smart watch. Created as a demonstration of what the famed German watchmakers can achieve, this 50mm beast has a perpetual calendar with moon phase, a split-seconds chronograph with flying seconds sub-dial, and a grande and petite sonnerie with minute repeater. It also costs in excess of $2.5m, making it quite the investment.

FRANCK MULLER AETERNITAS MEGA 4, $2.7m

If you’re paying such a large sum for a wristwatch, chances are you want something that will demand plenty of attention. The Franck Muller Aeternitas Mega 4 will do just that, and the Swiss brand even go as far to say that it’s the most complex wristwatch in the world. Whilst we can’t confirm if this is true, the watch’s 36 complications, 1483 components and 99 jewels certainly forward a good case.

PATEK PHILIPPE REF.1527, $5.7m

Dating back to 1943, this particular Patek Philippe is widely believed to be the most expensive watch in the world. It’s a one-off piece that has gone on to inspire a number of future complicated Patek watches and was, up until its sale at Christies in 2010, stored privately at the brand’s own museum.

Most Expensive Patek to Return to Auction at Sotheby’s

The world’s most famous watch will return to the auction block as the centerpiece of Sotheby’s Geneva sale of Important Watches November 14.

Jul 15, 2014 | By AFPRelaxnews SHARE .st0-whatsapp{fill:#EDEDED}.st1{fill:#55CD6C}.st2{fill:#FEFEFE}

The Henry Graves Supercomplication, a timepiece which has an estimated value of $16 million, is “the most complicated watch ever made completely by human hand” and will be sold in Geneva on November 14, Sotheby’s said.

“The list of superlatives which can be attached to this icon of the 20th century is truly extraordinary,” the auction house said, describing it as “the Holy Grail of watches”.

The timepiece, made by PATEK PHILIPPE , was commissioned by New York banker Henry Graves in 1925 and took a total of eight years to complete.

It features on its display not only the hour but also a plethora of other indicators: a perpetual calendar, the phases of the moon, sidereal time, indications for the time of sunset and sunrise, and the night sky of NYC.

The Henry Graves watch was the world’s most complicated for 56 years before it was surpassed by designs executed by technicians aided by computers.

It sold in 1999 for a then-record $11 million and is on sale again to mark the 175th anniversary of its manufacturer.
