Counting Down the Most Expensive Watches Ever Made

Watches are the one piece of men’s fine fashion where you are encouraged to go all out.

In a world where plain-coloured suits and modest ties are dominating board rooms, watches are the place to show off.

While watches are expensive, some of the best, most eye-catching pieces can be found at your local pawn shop.

If you love the flash of a great watch, check out these pieces. They rank as some of the most expensive watches ever made.

7. Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263 Oyster Albino- $4 million

As the most expensive Rolex ever sold, the Daytona Oyster Albino had a run of just four watches.

The watch features unique white chronograph sundials.

For a company that is synonymous with fancy watches, this piece remains its most expensive and possibly most notable watch.

6. Louis Moinet Meteoris– $4.6 million

Just like the Rolex Daytona, there were only four versions of this watch made, and for good reason: the watch contains an actual moon rock.

Each of the pieces are truly unique for what’s hidden inside. These pieces are really out of this world!

5. Hublot Big Bang– $5 million

With 1280 diamonds, the Hublot Big Bang is a total lesson in luxury.

Each diamond is cut by the same jeweler in New York to ensure complete consistency.

The entire piece is a seamless band and watch of diamonds that takes lavishness to a whole new level.

4. Patek Philippe Ref. 1518 in Stainless Steel- $11 Million

Patek luxury watches are known for their extravagance but they made a big splash with the Philippe 1518 because of its casing.

Instead of rose or yellow gold, this piece features a stainless steel casing.

Only four were made, which is another reason for its high price tag.

3. Jacob & Co. Billionaire Watch- $18 Million

While not worth billions itself, this watch is expensive enough to only be afforded by the ultra-wealthy.

Made with 230 collective carats of diamonds, each emerald cut, this piece has a skeleton face that is as striking as its diamond band.

2. Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication– $24 Million

Created exclusively for Henry Graves Jr., the famous banker and watch collector, the Supercomplication is named for its 24 complications.

It also features a perpetual calendar, minute repeater with Westminster chimes, times for sunrise and sunset, and a celestial chart based on the night sky above Graves’ New York home.

1. Chopard 201-Carat Watch- $25 Million

201 refers to the total number of carat diamonds on this watch, which includes a 15-carat pink diamond, a 12-carat blue diamond, and an 11-carat white diamond – 163 carats of white and yellow diamonds make up the rest.
