These expensive watches in the world make us think time is that very valuable. If you are one of those gentlemen who are super-rich and you have a passion for dressing up prim and properly, you’d most likely be interested in investing into a luxury watch.
Here are the top 5 most expensive watch we think an average guy will never be able to afford.
No. 05. Baume & Mercier – William Baume Flying Tourbillon
William Baume Tourbillon features black dial, black alligator strap, 52-hour power reserve and its unique “flying tourbillon”, which is held in place on only one side rather than on the top and bottom. Another distinctive feature of this watch lies in the unusual and elegant 9 o’clock position of its escapements and a small second display at 6 o’clock.
No. 04. Tag Heuer – Monaco V4
The V4 is designed around the engine of a high performance sports car, using materials, techniques and ideas never before seen or implemented in watchmaking. The traditional wheel and pivot based going train has been replaced by a series of high tensile belts, breathing a uniquely industrial spirit into the watch, it was this belt system that proved the toughest technical hurdle to clear. The automotive DNA runs through to the rear of the movement which is also where this Monaco gets its name, the four barrels are laid out to match the configuration of a four cylinder engine, whilst the unique ‘vertical slide rotor’ utilizes a solid ingot of ultra-dense Tungsten.
No. 03. JeanRichard – Paramount Tourbillon Linear Power Reserve
The power reserve is indicated in linear fashion, repeating the innovation presented in 2005 on the Paramount Square model. The challenge was to combine the Tourbillon with a power reserve with a linear indicator, all inserted in a 36 x 36 mm case. The watchmakers opted technically to move the power reserve from 4.30 o’clock to 10 o’clock, thereby making space for the Tourbillon cage.
No. 02. Glashütte Original – Julius Assmann 4 in white gold
This watch from Glashütte Original was released on the market in 2007 and it features a unique retrograde hour display and tourbillon. It can be worn as a wristwatch or pocket watch and it’s also offered in “cheaper” versions in rose gold or red gold for $145,000.
No. 01. Porsche Design – Indicator P’6910
The Porsche Design P’6910 Indicator combines chronograph functions with a genuinely mechanical jumping digital display. Even at a quick glance the stop hours, minutes and seconds can be captured with absolute certainty up to a total stoppage time of 9:59 hours. This absolute innovation in the area of mechanical watches is made possible by the most complex commercial wristwatch movement in the world that does its work inside this extraordinary timepiece.
