Tour de l'Ile by Vacheron Constantin

$1.5 million

Seven years of development, three years of assembly, 834 components and 16 functions make this the busiest watch in the world – and the most expensive. Special features include power reserve, moon phase, perpetual calendar, leap-year indicator, as well as the ability to eliminate timekeeping errors caused by slight variations due to shifts in gravity.

1735 by Blancpain


Named after the year in which Jehan-Jacques Blancpain opened his first factory, it took over 8 months to piece together all 740 components of this limited edition watch – so far, only 18 out of the 30 have been assembled. But with a platinum case, split-second chronograph, 80-hour power reserve and crocodile strap, you can’t hurry perfection.

Not only does this masterpiece have a power reserve indicator, a sub-second complication, a minute repeater and a truly elegant face, but it also has the unique ability to sound the passing hours with actual tunes – hence the name. A convenient selector enables a choice of different tunes, each of which can be personalized to the wearer's taste.
