We all like watches and we’d love to own as many and as expensive as possible. Unfortunately, our financial resources are limited and all we can do is a little online window-shopping. Here are 10 watches that are nice to look at, but are way too expensive for most of us and we’ll just have to admire them.
The Patek Caliber 89 – $5,120,000
What makes a watch cost 5 million dollars? This particular watch is one of the most complex watches on the planet and you have to have a high degree of mechanical know-how to operate it.
Split Seconds Patek Philippe Reference 1436 by Tiffany & Co. – $214,000
You just read Tiffany & Co. and realized that this watch is too expensive. Compared to other pieces on this list, this one is affordable for the average millionaires, but for an average person it is a little pricey for a watch.
Patek Philippe PEF 5016P – $762,000
This is that kind of watch that can be passed down from generation to generation. It’s a complicated piece that keeps up with the moon-phase, perpetual calendar, retrograde behemoth and you won’t have to adjust it for another 100 years.
The Breguet Marie Antoinette – $XX,000,000+
This pocket watch was originally designed by Breguet and has all the features of a smartphone except for texting and calling. The thing is that there were needed over 40 years to finish the watch, time during which Breguet and Marie Antoinette passed away.

The special thing about this watch is the fact that it features a tourbillon – an antigravity device for wrist, which prevents the watch from being badly affected from gravity.
Rolex Submariner – $234,000
Besides the fact that Rolex is known for being an expensive watch brand, this one is special because it was owned by “The King of Cool” himself, Steve McQueen.
Vacheron Tour De L’Ile -$1,250,000
This watch wins the award for the most complex watch in the marchet, Vacheron being the longest running watch manufacturer in the world.
Richard Mille Tourbillon – $525,000
This luxury watch has a great modern design that includes a combination of aluminum titanium, which will add a special something to any person wearing it.

What would you prefer, a Ferrari or this watch on your wrist? For $350 grand you can have one or the other. Think about it!
Ap Royal Oak Grande Complication – $560,000
The main difference between this watch and the other watches on this list is that this one is easier to use. You don’t need any instructions. You just have to put it on your wrist and go.
