The World's Most Expensive Watch
Chopard 201 Carat Watch
The most expensive watch in the world hardly seems like a watch to me.
You are not seeing things, you read that right. In the year 2000 this slightly gaudy, definitely over-the-top watch sold for $25 million dollars. Made by Chopard, it is adorned with three heart-shaped diamonds. One that is a 15-carat pink diamond, one that is a 12-carat blue diamond and one that is an 11-carat white diamond. As if that was not enough, they added 163 carats of white and yellow diamonds to bring the total to 201 carats of diamonds.
An unbelievable watch that must really be something to behold.
More Chopard Watches - Available from Amazon.
Okay, at whopping $25,000,000 the watch shown above is well out of my price range and so are these ones available on Amazon but they are fun to look at and, ahh, slightly more reasonably priced.
I wasn't expecting one of the most expensive Chopard watches on Amazon to feature Mickey Mouse but voila! Here he is!
The World's Most Expensive Pocket Watch
Patek Phillipe's Supercomplication Watch - This Patek Phillipe watch is the worlds most expensive POCKET WATCH.
Patek Phillipe Watches Are Rare
Patek Phillipe watches are rare. This more modern example, however, is available from Amazon.
Patek Phillipe's Super Complication was created in 1932 after four years of work for a New Yorker named Henry Graves Junior.There was a competition amongst a number of watch collectors to own the watch with the most complications.
It is a yellow gold watch and has two faces and 24 complications.. Only one Supercomplication was ever made and it was sold by Sotheby's auction house in 1999 for more than $11,000,000. According to Forbes, it beat that record when it resold in 2014 for $24,000,000.
Another super expensive watch that is stunning in its handsomeness.
Patek Philippe also invented the first wrist watch in the 1800s.

It took 10,000 hours of research and development.to create. Only seven were ever made and, in 2005, a Vacheron Constantin Tour de l'Ile was sold for $1,500,000.
Another unbelievable time piece.
