When it comes to fine jewelry and accessories, we can’t forget about watches. They’re stylish, beautiful, and extremely practical. After all, our lives revolve around the time, whether we’re going to work or meeting a friend for dinner. Without a watch, we would be quite lost!

Yet, if we move on from a well-loved watch, it may sit around collecting dust and never see the time of day. (No pun intended.) In this case, it’s worth thinking about Selling Your Watch and making a profit off your piece.

But first, let’s look at some of the most valuable watches in the world. And while you certainly don’t need one of these pieces to Sell Your High-Quality Watch, they emphasize the beauty and potential of luxurious watches. You’ll find that the craftsmanship of these watches is truly unmatched.

As of March 2019, here are the most expensive watches in the world:

Louis Moinet Meteoris: $4.6 million

Aside from the $4.6 million price tag, each Louis Moinet Meteoris watch contains something extremely unique: a moon rock! Furthermore, only four of these watches were made.

Breguet Antique Number 2667: $4.7 million

From the 18k yellow gold case to the sleek and traditional design, this well-appointed pocket watch features two oscillating bodies. It was auctioned off for $4.7 million.

Hublot Big Bang: $5 million

Priced at $5 million, the Hublot Big Bang has 1,280 diamonds, each of which is at least three carats. In fact, all of the gemstones were cut by the same experienced New York jeweler to ensure that they all match.

Patek Philippe Ref. 1518 in Stainless Steel: $11 million

Patel Phillipe’s 1518 was first introduced in 1941. It was also the first-ever perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatch in the world. Since then, 281 gold versions have been produced. Most were made with yellow gold, and about 55 were made with rose gold.

There are only four stainless steel versions, which explains this watch’s appeal. The first of this series was auctioned off for $11,136,642.00 in 2016.

Jacob & Co. Billionaire Watch: $18 million

With a price tag of $18 million, the Jacob & Co. Billionaire Watch is appropriately named. It features a skeleton watch face and 260 carats of emerald-cut diamonds. The case and bracelet are made of 18-karat white gold and set with diamonds, too.

Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication: $24 million

If you love pocket watches, you’ll appreciate this watch by Patek Phillipe. It was commissioned by a banker named Henry Graves Jr. in the early 1920s. It took three years to design and five years to make, so Graves didn’t receive it until 1933.

The pocket watch has 24 complications, or “functions.” These include sunrise and sunset times and a celestial map based on what one would see from Graves’ Manhattan apartment.

Chopard 201-Carat Watch: $25 million

In 2000, the luxury brand Chopard created a 201-carat diamond watch. It’s made of three heart diamonds in pink (15 carats), blue (12 carats), and white (11 carats). The remaining white and yellow diamonds are 163 carats.

Breguet Marie-Antoinette Grande Complication Pocket Watch: $30 million

This gold pocket watch has a fascinating story. In 1783, Marie Antoinette’s secret admirer ordered a watch from Breguet. The watch was meant to be a present for the Queen. However, Breguet’s son didn’t finish the watch until 1827 — more than 40 years later. It was also 34 years after the Queen died and four years after Breguet died.

In 1983, the watch was stolen from a Jerusalem museum but was found in December 2007. As of 2013, it was said to be worth $30 million.

Graff Diamonds The Fascination: $40 million

This 152.96-carat bracelet watch has a 38.13-carat pear-shaped center diamond. The white pear diamond can even be removed and worn as a ring! As a watch that’s both convertible and beautiful, this piece of art is the definition of innovation.

Graff Diamonds Hallucination: $55 million

>Graff Diamonds Hallucination has a price tag so high that it might make you lightheaded. This sparkly masterpiece contains 110 carats of extremely Rare Colored Diamonds, including large orange, yellow, green, blue, and pink diamonds. They also feature multiple cuts, including heart, round, and >emerald marquise. The watch is set in a platinum bracelet.

Unsurprisingly, this piece took thousands of hours to make and is certainly the most valuable watch known to man. It was first revealed at Baselworld 2014.
