10 Most Expensive Watches

Everybody knows that a good watch costs good money. However, some watches are so expensive that it can’t all be about functionality. Most of the time, it’s about prestige and status. Let’s see some of the most expensive watches in the world and examine what makes them so.

Hublot Black Caviar Bang

The Hublot Black Caviar has an 18 carat case plated with white gold and black and white diamonds which will definitely stand out in the crowd. It’s expensive ($1M) but it’s worth it.

Patek Philippe ref. 1591

Maybe you can’t even imagine what a watch like this could cost, considering its very normal-looking design. Don’t let its simplicity fool you, as it was sold for well over $2 million! This particular brand produces watches in gold more often, and these stainless steel pieces are rare to find; hence, the high price.

Patek Philippe ref. 2499

Patek Philippe is obviously keen on making very expensive watches, as this following example further proves. This first series of 2499 rose gold watches is very limited, with only 5 available pieces. Therefore, it is to no wonder the price goes as high as $2,280,000.

Franck Muller Aeternitas Mega 4

The price tag on this timepiece says $2.7 million which is due to the highest number of complications within it. We like to call it the most complicated watch in the world. 

Cartier Secret 

The uniqueness of this watch lies in its design; an 18 carat white gold phoenix set with emeralds and diamonds. 80 carats worth of diamonds justifies the price of $2.755 million. 

Piaget Emperador Temple

When you set eyes on this baby you will possibly suffer eye damage. Piaget Emperador is made up of hundreds of differently cut diamonds which create the flashy design. If you want to be in the center of attention, this is the watch for you. However, it will cost you $3.3 Million.

Patek Philippe Platinum World Time

Yes, this is the third Patek watch on the list but we can’t help it if they produce some of the most expensive and complicated wristwatches in the world. This one is estimated at a price of $4 million, due to the function of self-winding and the ability to choose the finishing color.

Patek Philippe Calibre 89

The making of this particular series of watches had a special meaning; it was the company’s 150th birthday. To honor that, the makers wanted to create a special edition that will not be available to everyone. It weighs a full 2 pounds and was the most complicated watch in the world when it was produced. Price starts at $5 Million.

Patek Philippe Super Complication

$11 million for a watch? Yes, that is absolutely right. This 18 carat gold pocket watch is the second most expensive watch in the world, due to its complexity and quality. It took the original makers 5 years to produce it.


201 carat diamonds in a variety of colors explain the astonishing price of $25 million. At first glance you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s a wristwatch; instead, it looks like a piece of jewelry you can use to show off your wealth.
