    I stumbled upon a Luminor Panerai at auction not long ago & went for it at £800…sold it a few days later for £1600! I’m now even more into expensive watches and hope one day i’ll buy myself a few for keeps. Amazing craftmanship & time goes into those watches…an expensive watch always speaks volumes!!

  28. Sidiku Olubodun on November 6th, 2009 9:46 pm

    This is craziness.

  29. Dustrat on November 9th, 2009 1:56 pm

    I thought paying 2K for a watch was a lot of money! I then found a watch for 100K. I wondered how much money one could actually pay for a watch. Consequently I found that figure to be well over 1 million. It’s sad to see people work everyday at menial jobs with little hope for a better future while the trust fund babies and idle wealthy squander our money on watches. This is repugnant!

  30. CBA on November 15th, 2009 2:06 pm

    You will also need in this list the new Franck Muller Aeternitas Mega 4.

  32. Dave on January 5th, 2010 7:20 pm

    Beautiful! Have got many great vintage watches (car boots etc) some top Dollar,but not in this league.
    I think i have the best,beautiful timepieces,because i do not have to dream.

  33. ivysyd on January 18th, 2010 2:07 am

    All these watches except Vacheron cost that much because they have diamonds and lots of gold. The most superior and prestigous class of watches are the three: Patek Philipe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet. They are the real deal with all the complications, tradition and history.

    These others are more like jewels.

  34. Keno on February 8th, 2010 10:51 am

    I will never ever know in the world got these kind of watches so damn expensive even that’s look nice, but i think only those who stupid only will decide to buy it or hold it. 1.5million is an unusual price for buying that watch. why dont we used 1.5million to help those people who are very poor or weakness? God BLess

  35. aj on February 18th, 2010 4:53 pm

    why is patek phillipe not on the list???

  36. just a guy on February 21st, 2010 4:05 am

    1.5 mil for a watch…ha what else do you have. I got a vintage timex with all the working parts…I will let it go for 1.4 any offers over a mil welcomed.

  37. mi_chaelity on March 18th, 2010 6:22 am

    amazing watches hope to have one of those someday…
    very fantastic!

  38. mi_chaelity on March 18th, 2010 6:28 am

    the manufactures should base the price not only the striking jewels but the main function of the watch…
    maybe the most expensive watch today is the one who will make a pure diamond-made watch…that’s i will praise for it’s value…

    one thing more is that make an expensive watch which everyone can take time to buy it…huh… that’s all

  39. ashish on April 8th, 2010 11:31 am
