5  — Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon $1.3 million –  is number five on the list and can be summed up in two words, simply awesome.  Equipped with two faces, this watch is rumored to be the watchmaker’s finest piece. Its intricate creation is second to none.  The design is simple yet sophisticated, offering a perpetual calendar, retrograde date, and it even lists the lunar phase. By simply flipping the top face, the watch reveals a celestial view detailing the sidereal time and a sky-chart that traces the stars and phase and orbit of the moon.

 

4  –  Vacheron Constantin Tour de l’Ile $1.5 million  — provides would be wearers with one of the most elaborate constructs ever displayed on a watch.  Consisting of 834 parts, this blend of casual and chic lists two time zones, gives the sunset time, has a perpetual calendar, and an astronomical indicator of the night sky.

3 – Patek Philippe’s Platinum World Time  $4 million — This is the company’s second appearance on our list and even better than the first.  Patek Philippe clearly aims for simplicity packed with extravagance as this watch features an incredible 24 different time zones.  Creators of this timepiece infused a sleek design with sensational technology.

 

2 – Patek Phillipe’s Supercomplication $11 million – Patek Phillipe is dominating our list, and rightly so.  It took four years of excellent craftsmanship to finish this project and the completed watch was shown to eager public eyes in 1932.  Armed with two faces and 24 complications, this pocket watch was sold at Sotheby’s auction for an astounding $11 million.

 

1 – 201-carat Chopard $25 million –  The epitome of elegant and extravagance. This piece of  jewelry is by far the hautest watch in existence.  The face is devoured by a rainbow like array of fine jewels.  The watch-bracelet is accentuated with a trio of heart-shaped diamonds: A 15-carat pink diamond, 12-carat blue diamond, and an 11-carat white diamond, all of which open with a spring-loaded mechanism. Over 600 yellow diamonds sit alongside 90 plus colorless diamonds.  This watch is guaranteed to drop jaws and turn heads.
