5 Best Watches In The World
Watches have always been a passion of mine and i have several that i like to wear,unfortunately i am not in a position to afford many of the worlds most glamorous and expensive watches as much as i wish i was.Many of these are still hand crafted and are fully expected to outlive their owners,most of these fashionable time pieces you will see being worn by footballers and celebrities across the globe.Some are hundreds of thousands of pounds and are ridiculously over the top whilst some could be purchased if you saved hard for them.I will list a Five of the ridiculously expensive watches and then finish off with a few of the cheaper but still highly sought after watches and let you make your mind up over which you prefer.Hopefully fingers crossed i win the national lottery and will then go on a mad shopping spree and buy every watch in this list,here's hoping.
Franck Muller Conquistador
In 1983 Franck Muller begins creating beautiful timepieces bearing his name and little more than 10 years after has his won workshop and rapidly expanding brand that is starting to be enjoyed by celebrities around the world.His time pieces are all hand made and beautifully crafted,his conquistador watches are among my favourite and a personal favourite of the footballer Rio Ferdinand.With a polished steel case and 21 jewels and boasting a platinum rotor this watch is a classic timepiece which would look good when combined with a suit for maximum effect.What i would give to own this.Simple yet elegant.
Tag Heuer Monaco V4
Tag Heuer are usually among the cheaper luxury brands out there but not in this case,due to the fact that only 150 of this type of watch were made,it is very different to their usual watches as it is so striking and a little bizarre.If you look at it closely it has lots of the letter v all over its design and is one of the most shock resistant expensive watches in the world today.It was designed to celebrate tag's 150th anniversary and is the first belt driven watch produced,Because of that fact it is very expensive at around $80,000,but it is so striking that if i could afford it i would probably purchase it for the shock value.
Parmigiani Fleurier Tecnica Skeleton Chronograph
This watch is one of my favourites around at the moment,i believe there was a limited number made and it is clear to see why,at nearly one million dollars it is one heck of an expensive watch and so it should be,the case is made from platinum and it contains a full diamond bezel.It is simply beautiful.But possibly my favourite thing about this watch is the blue numbers and also the hints of blue in the inner workings,it makes the watch stand out just as much as the diamonds do.
Patek Philippe’s Platinum World Time
Only one watch made in the whole world.That is exclusivity for you,it was sold in 2002 for four million dollars.At that time it was the most expensive wrist watch in the entire world.
Jacob & Co Crystal Tourbillion
This gorgeous watch by makers Jacob & co a favourite of footballers comes with a 18 carat white gold case and 17.5 carats of diamonds,it has a transparent skeleton dial and a 2 carat baguette diamond buckle,there are 18 of these watches in the world today and will cost you around nine hundred thousand dollars
Raymond Weil have long been my more affordable watch makers,yes sure they can do watches that cost thousands but you can get some cracking timepieces that only cost a few hundred.Raymond Weil is a member of the swiss watch making community and his watches are renowned world wide.
Another of my favourite and more affordable everyday watches is Tag Heuer,they have been around for over a hundred years and are synonymous with sport,in fact lots of sports stars and racing drivers wear and are sometimes sponsored by tag,From the sublime to the outrageous these watches must be seen and worn.
