Are you a fan of the finer things?
Ever look at diamond covered watch and think to yourself, “Wow, that’s unattainable as f**k!”
Welcome to the club. Sure, million dollar watches aren’t exactly in your average person’s budget but that doesn’t make these watches any less incredible.
Most of these timepieces are marvels of modern engineering, reaching unheard of levels of precision and also often crammed full of an insane amount of diamonds.
So, enjoy looking at the photos in this gallery, because this is the closest you’ll ever get to any of these timepieces:
Hublot Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie – $1,000,000
Only eight of these watches were made, each with 1,185 baguette diamonds. With over 2,000 hours of work going into each watch, you definitely can’t afford this one.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor – $1,125,000
This watch’s case is made completely from silicon (apparently the first of its kind). Silicon is half the weight of titanium but four times the hardness, so this is one seriously solid, seriously unattainable watch.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica a Grande Sonnerie – $1,474,070
This watch has 1,300 parts and can literally play the entire Big Ben chiming sequence. That’s amazing and beyond the financial grasp of the average human.
Vacheron Constantin Tour de I’Ile – $1,538,160
This watch has so many features crammed into it, it literally has two faces: one on the front and one on the back. It has two timezones, a yearlong calendar, a sunset time indicator and many more amazing functions you’ll never get to use or even see in person.
Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1 – $1,600,000
This watch is minimal, beautiful and impossibly expensive. It features a nanosculpture by artist Willard Wigan in the crown, which clearly helps justify its astronomical cost. Don’t even think about fantasizing about owning this one.
Richard Mille RM 56-01 – $1,850,000
The entire case is made of sapphire crystal. That’s not an easy feat. In fact it’s such a difficult process, they only made 5 of these timepieces you’ll never have enough disposable income to afford.
Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 56-02 Sapphire – $2,020,000
This may look like the previous watch but it’s double the price! It has the same all-sapphire case as its predecessor but also the brand’s revolutionary “cabled movement” design. It literally is full of tiny cables and pulley systems and even its band is made of a “proprietary Aerospace Nano material” that better offer $2M worth of comfort. Not that it matters, seeing as how they only made ten of these painfully unattainable timepieces.
A. Lange & Sohne Grand Complication – $2,497,000
This watch is just pure wow. It not only has a grand and petit sonnerie (big and little chime) it also has a monopusher chronograph with a split-seconds function (basically a super expensive, one-button stopwatch), a perpetual calendar, moon phase display, and so much more that’ll you’ll never lay a hand on.
Patek Philippe & Co. Henry Graves Jr. Supercomplication – $25,000,000
A “complication” is any feature in a watch that does something other than tell you what time it is. This watch is the world’s most expensive timepiece, selling at auction for $25 mil, because it has 24 complications. Also probably because it was made in 1933, back before computers could help.
