The 6 Most Expensive Men's Watches in the World

Updated on May 23, 2010

1: Joaillene 101 Manchette

This watch is so expensive and rare I was unable to find a price on it. It is the latest Joallerie 101 series from Jaeger-LeCoultre. It has 576 diamonds surrounding the face of the watch and it is 18 carat white gold. The onyx version of it comes with 400 diamonds and 11 onyx cabochons. This watch looks like a bracelet, but in fact this is a watch that uses the mechanical manually wound Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 movement.

2. Vacheron Costantin's Tour de L'ile

There were only 7 of these watches made, as it is the most complex double-faced watch ever made, containing 834 parts. It is 18 carat silver, gold dial with a hand-woven alligator wristband with a pink gold buckle. This watch also includes several other features including moonphase, sunset time and a perpetual calendar. This watch costs $1.5 million.

3. The Big Bang Chronograph

This watch was designed like no other by Hublot. Its setting is almost see-through, and there are diamonds everywhere that seem to sparkle at every angle. This watch alone costs $1 million.

4. The Classical Billionaire Tourbillion

This watch is made by Corum and is18-carat white gold tourbillon equipped with a hand-wound CO-372 movement with 90-hour power reserve. It has skeleton hour and minute hands, roman numerals carved in blue sapphire or black diamond and bezel set with trapeze-cut diamonds and a crocodile leather strap. In total, 726 round diamonds (8.04 carats), 104 baguette-cut sapphires (7.57 carats) and 64 baguette-cut blue sapphires (3.14 carats). There were only 10 of each color made. It is priced at $998,000.

5. Titanic

Made by a Swiss jeweller by the name of Romain Jerome. The watch is made from steel and coal from the hull of the Titanic, as authenticated by the ships builders, Harland and Wolff. The company created an alloy using the slab from the Titanic with steel being used in a Harland and Wolff replica of the vessel.The black dials were made by fusing the recovered coal that had been burned in the Titanic's furnaces with ceramics.The watches were offered for sale for the first time in Basel for anywhere between $7,800 and $173,000.

6. Breguet Double Tourbillion

This watch is hand engraved with an image of the solar system on the face. It is 95% pure platinum case with blue steel. It contains 18 carat white gold, sapphires, and rubies. Breguet only makes 20 of this specific type of watch per year. They are priced between $311,000 and $375,000.

      This was written in 2010. I'm sure there are many more expensive by now :)

      Thanks for this info - but isn't the Richard Mille more costly than the last two watches here?
