It may seem ridiculous to spend any more than $100 for something that fits around your wrist and tells time. But watches of this calibre often have intrinsic value, and will appreciate rather than depreciate as time passes. Below are five watches that clocked in at over $1 million, so unless you own a Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, then they definitely cost more than your car.
Yep, the price is in the name so there’s no ambiguity here. There’ve only been eight of this particular timepiece ever constructed, maybe because there weren’t enough baguette diamonds to make any more. Each one contains over 1,185 baguettes! Even a Frenchman would have to admit that’s a lot of bread.
It’s the second most expensive watch produced by Swiss company Hublot, second only to the “5 Million” for obvious reasons.
The entry from Roger Dubuis for this exorbitant category of watches is the Excalibur Quatuor. The Excalibur’s case is made entirely of silicon, and it’s the first watch of its caliber to be so constructed. Equipped with the signature RD101 movement, the watch is said to be more accurate than a tourbillion watch. It is priced at about $1.125 million.
Have you noticed that the more expensive the watch, the harder it is to pronounce? Also, there are more moving parts as the price goes up, such as in this one, which has 1,300 components, apparently for no other purpose than to imitate the Big Ben chiming sequence. Price: $1.474 million.
This is another limited edition (only seven made) outrageously expensive watch, designed in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of Vacheron. It is a double-faced watch because the front was not big enough to accommodate all the added features. It still manages to tell time though. It is priced at $1.538 million.
And last but not least, an offering from Greubel Forsey is Art Piece 1, which debuted at the 2013 SIHH. It features an inclined tourbillion and a miniature sculpture by Willard Wigan on the crown. Not bad for $1.6 million.
So there you have it, 5 watches that cost more than your car, and perhaps even your house. Unless, of course they don’t, in which case I hate you and your decadent bourgeois lifestyle.
