Ridiculously expensive wristwatches

Check out our compilation of the top five most expensive watches on the planet and take solace in the fact that most of them already have owners. 

  • The $5 million Big Bang from Hublot watches is encrusted with 1,282 diamonds and was given by Beyoncé to her husband Jay-Z on his 43rd birthday. 
  • Last year was the grand 175th anniversary of the Genevan brand par excellence and, to celebrate, Patek presented its Grandmaster Chime, the most complicated wristwatch to date with 20 complications and a $2.6 million price tag.
  • Costing $2.2 million, the high-tech wizardry packed into this Richard Mille RM 56-02 sapphire tourbillon watch is exposed through the clear sapphire crystal case, including the revolutionary cable suspended movement. It's not a one-off, although the 10 models were snatched up soon after launch.
  • Made from out-of-this-world materials - literally - the Louis Moinet Meteoris watch collection, going for a cool $4.6 million, is composed of four unique tourbillon watches made from meteorites and asteroids.
  • The Graff Hallucination jewellery watch, presented in 2014, takes the cake with its $55 million price tag. This dizzying concoction of 110 carats of rare multi-coloured diamonds is estimated to be the most valuable watch on the planet.
  • Louis Cartier Tank watch

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
