A Look at Some of the Most Expensive Watches in the World
Luxury watches and timepieces are a staple at Beverly Loan Company, the first luxury collateral lender in Beverly Hills, California. The high end pawnshop works with watches from companies like Hublot, Patek Philippe, and Rolex. Beverly Loan and its staff prides themselves in their knowledge and expertise of fine wristwatches, and are happy to confidentially assist clients who find themselves in a cash crunch. Below are some of the most sought-after, luxurious, and rare watches in the world.
- The 1942 Rolex Chronograph, of which only 12 pieces were made, is the only split second to ever be created by Rolex. This makes the Rolex 1942 a collectors dream, and was sold at auction in 2011 for 1.17 million dollars.
- The Vacheron Constantin Tour de L’ile is a stunning rose gold wristwatch that was unveiled in 2005 for the company’s 250th anniversary. Only seven in the world we’re produced and features a huge amount of complications, including 16 astronomical indications. This beautiful timepiece will set you back 1.5 million dollars.
- The Hublot Big Bang with over 1,280 individual diamonds is easily one of the most unique watches in existence. The watch costs over 5 million dollars, and supposedly took the manufacturer over a year just to find the perfect selection of diamonds.
- Far surpassing any other watch on this list, is the Marie Antoinette Breguet Grand Complication. An alleged lover of Marie Antoinette commissioned this watch in 1782 – the watch was so complex that it wasn’t finished until 1827 by the creators son. An incredible feat of intricate work, the pocket watch is surrounded by gold and can now be seen at the L. A. Mayer museum.
