The world's most expensive watch: Who holds the record? -Charlie Paris

What is the most expensive watch in the world? This is the question many of you are asking ...

To answer this question we decided to elect two watches as the most expensive watches in the world. Indeed the most expensive watch in the world has an exorbitant amount due to the incalculable number of diamonds which compose it. We are therefore closer to fine jewelry than fine watchmaking. We are already saying a little too much, room for the revelations of the most expensive watch in the world!

1. Most expensive watch in the world

The most expensive watch in the world is the Ladies watch"Hallucination" by Graff Diamonds. This watch offered by the Graff house is estimated at 55 million dollars (~ 40 million euros)! The "Hallucination", this model produced in a single copy, is composed of 110 carats of extremely rare colored diamonds, which explains its price. She made her first appearance during the Baselworlds (Swiss watch and jewelry fair) in 2014.

The price of this watch can therefore be explained much more by the stones with which it is set than by the watch itself. Indeed the "Hallucination" has a quartz movementwithout any particular complications.

 

2. The most expensive watch in the world, outside the world of jewelry

If we step outside the world of jewelry, the most expensive watch in the world is a Patek Philippe watch.

The men watch Grandmaster Chime 6300A, "The Only One" by Patek Philippe is a unique model that was specially designed for the Only Watch charity auction. The purpose of this auction is to raise funds to finance research on the Duchenne myopathy. After more than 2 hours of auction, the "Only One" flew to an anonymous buyer for the sum of $ 31 million (28.2 million euros), thus becoming the most expensive watch in the world.

The watch is also reversible and can be worn on both sides! 100,000 hours of labor as well as 8 years of research were necessary to create this concentrate of technology and technique. The Only One, the most expensive watch in the world, is a mechanical watch hand-wound, 47.7mm in diameter and 16.07mm thick.
