There are different categories of the most extraordinary designer watches. The most expensive watch can be eye catching to those who know value. Yet, rare and controversial watches sometimes take center stage by its history and how they are made. Yet, watches need not be controversial or made of jewels to be of value. They can be made from historical artifacts.
The Most Expensive Watch
The Chopard 201-Carat Watch is the world’s most expensive watch. To wear it you will have to find the small amount of $25 million. Three heart-shaped diamonds, one white, one blue and one pink, can be found surrounding the yellow diamonds pav-set face of the watch. The heart-shaped diamonds can open up like a petal. The watch is made out of 874 diamonds in total.
A Rare and Controversial Watch
Romain Jerome managed to bring controversy to the watch industry that goes beyond personal design preferences. The Titanic DNA Collection watches contain coal and bits of metal taken from the hull of the world’s most famous ship. Is it in poor taste or a great way to keep the memory of the many people who lost their lives during the catastrophe in 1912?
A Watch Out of This World
Another Romain Jerome design, which is just as spectacular as the Titanic one. The watch is made out of bits of the Apollo 11, spacesuits and real moon dust. It’s an interesting concept that Romain Jerome have realized. Who needs gold and diamonds if you can just use dust from the moon?
Unfortunately, we don’t all have an obscenely large sum of of money lying around so many of us make do with everyday designer watches. But to be honest, a good Diesel or Michael Kors watch looks stunning and I don’t have to be terrified whenever I put it on that I might get a scratch on it.
