5 Most Expensive Watch Brands

Updated on June 6, 2014

Which are the most famous and most expensive watch brands you have heard of? I bet they include the big Swiss brands such as Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer etc. No doubt that most of these watches cost you thousands of dollars and are naturally categorized as expensive. However, interestingly, most of these brands do not fall into the ultra rich category which may cost you millions of dollars.

Here are some of the most expensive watch brands you can find in the world. Go ahead and compare if your watch can compete with them.

Top 5 Ultra Expensive Watch Brands

1) Hublot

It is said that the “expensive” segment in the watch industry starts only over $25,000. Hublot is a Swiss watch company that was established in 1980. Hublot specializes in manufacturing watches ranging from a few thousand dollars to a few million dollars. Just to give you an example, The Tourbillon Solo Bang costs you $122,000 whereas the Big Bang Caviar costs you a whopping $1 million.

2) Girard Perregaux

Girard Perregaux is another Swiss watch manufacturer specializing in manufacturing expensive watch brands. The Opera Three Musical Hours watch from Girard Perregaux costs you about $420,000. It is like a mini jewellery box which has a keyboard, a drum, 20 blades and 150 hand-mounted pins. Music can be played on demand using a lever. You have the facility to even personalize it according to you taste.

3) Vacheron Constantin

Vacheron Constantin was established in 1755 making it the oldest watchmaker with uninterrupted history in the world. It is ranked in the top three best traditional watch making brands just behind Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. Constantin was also the first watchmaker to develop engine-turned dials. The Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers costs you $387,200. The watch is thin and has an 18k rose gold case. It has a black alligator strap. Some of the previous owners of this watch include Napoleon Bonaparte and Harry Truman.

4) Audemars Piguet

This is probably the only watchmaker that competes with Patek Philippe in terms of consistently producing the world’s most expensive brands. The Royal Oak Complication (the watchmaker calls its pieces complications) is self winding and has 52 jewel movements. It has an 18 carat white gold case and bracelet. The watch has a transparent sapphire caseback and has a perpetual calendar indicating the day, week, month, moon phase, leap years etc.

5) Patek Philippe

Patek Philippe is probably the top most expensive watch brand. The Sky Moon Tourbillon 5002 P can easily cost you $1.5 million. The watch is composed of 686 parts among which some are microscopically small. The watch is double faced and has celestial movements. Some other features include 48 hour power reserve, 55 jewel movement and manual winding. The watch comes with a black crocodile leather band and sapphire crystal.
