World’s Most Expensive Watches

After my post about the 24 Karot Mac Book Pro I feel the need for some more Bling. I personally love watches, when I finally become a a billionaire I will most likely collect them, however I despise over the top jewelry I think all these Footballers and Celebrities wearing diamond encrusted watches look like d**ks. Anyway despite my feelings towards celebrities fashion choices here is a list of some of the the worlds most expensive watches.

  1. Vacheron Constantin Tour de l’Ile

  2. $1.6 million

    Touted as the world’s most complex watch ever made, Vacheron Costantin’s Tour de l’Ile was designed in 2005 as 250th anniversary collectible piece. This 834-part watch took over 10,000 man-hours to create and features an 18-carat silvered gold dial with a hand-sewn alligator leather band and pink gold buckle.

  3. Parmigiani Fleurier Tecnica Skeleton Chronograph

  4. $850,000

    This watch won’t be available until early 2008, but it’s worth the wait. O

    nly three will be made. Each will incorporate a platinum case and complications that include a minute repeater, tourbillon and chronograph, as well as a cathedral chime with which you can ring in the New Year.

  5. Blancpain Grande Complication

  6. $785,000

    This winding wristwatch features traditional complications such as minute repeater, split-seconds chronograph, tourbillon, perpetual calendar, moon phase and an automatic winding mechanism. The sleek black crocodile wristband pulls it all together.

  7. Girard-Perregaux Opera One

  8. $495,000

    This platinum timepiece features an alligator band and posseses a “Westminster” minute repeater and tourbillon with three gold bridges, manual winding, 75-hour power reserve and a see-through backing. If $495,000 just barely surpasses your budget, the rose gold version retails for a slightly more affordable $450,000.
