Looking for the most expensive watch in the world? Do you have a sock full of old savings and are you looking for an exceptional timepiece no one else has? The most expensive watch in the world right now is the Graff Diamonds Hallucination. This watch is made of very rare colored diamonds (110 carats). This is a ladies watch by the way. You may think you're hallucinating, but the Graff Diamonds Hallucination 'only' costs $55 million! Is it worth it?! (Photo: Graffdiamonds.com).
Although diamonds are pretty nice to look at, we actually think this Graff Diamonds watch is ugly. Sorry, matter of taste. You get the idea: that's why we don't have it in stock… Just kidding. This exceptionally unique and expensive watch is owned by Graff Diamonds and cannot be ordered. This Graff watch has never been sold.

The most expensive watch in the world is owned by Graff Diamonds, founded by Laurence Graff, an English jeweler/businessman and billionaire.
It is mainly the beautifully cut diamonds that give the watch its value. But the thousands of hours of work that Graff Diamonds put into making this most expensive watch in the world also make it exceptional. All diamonds are of the rarest kind and cut in different ways and placed in a platinum watch strap.
The Graff Diamonds brand takes the cake and is one of the most expensive watch brands. But there are still a number of other expensive watch brands that produce very expensive watches.
Patek Philipp, Rolex, Audemars Piquet you probably know them, but also F.P. Journe, Richard Mille, Vacheron Constantin watches are among the most expensive brands.
The Graff Diamonds do not count in this because this model was never sold. But the most expensive watch ever sold is the Philippe Grandmaster Chime 6300A-010. This watch was made especially for the biennial charity auction Only Watch 2019 at Christie's in Geneva. During this auction, the Philippe Grandmaster Chime sold for a whopping $31.19 million.

The most expensive Rolex is Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona 6239 which sold at auction for $17.8 million. This watch has a very valuable and reliable Valjoux 72 movement. But what makes this watch especially valuable is the fact that it was worn by Paul Newman.

At WatchXL you won't find any Paul Newman watches and no Philippe Grandmasters, too bad isn't it? The most expensive watch we currently have in our shop is a Citizen CC9025-51E Satellite Wave from €1695. That's quite different from a Rolex, we understand, but still a cool watch that is fully satellite controlled and is made of Super Titanium.
