How To Wear A Wrist Watch Properly – The Lesson of Style

When purchasing watches, no one is questioned with how to wear watches, actually. This appears to be logical and rational. Nevertheless, the simplest things happen to be complicated sometimes. Everything is made from details and details sometimes mean far more than the whole. People who really wander how to wear watches properly exist and they are really concerned in this issue.


Cigar Lighters – Torches To Splash Delight

The Cuban leader Fidel Castro, a revolutionary Che Gevara, politicians Winston Churchill and Bill Clinton, writers Somerset Maugham and Mark Twain, the actor and the political figure Arnold  Schwarzenegger – these names are well-known and these figures are best known to the world for their political, social, literary and other achievements.

The Most Expensive Watches

Thursday, 04 November 2010

The Most Expensive WatchesLike it or not but the most expensive things are launched in limited edition and are often purchased by collectors only. They are hardly acquired by ordinary people since they are made by custom. The costly products include elite goods manufactured by companies to any anniversary or to commemorate a particular event or holiday and such good are mainly recorded by the Guinness Book to cost a fortune. This refers to jewelry, automobiles and watches.

However, we admit that the most expensive watches come few times as expensive as the most costly automobile, like Bugatti Veyron costs $1,7 million USD against $25 million for Chopard watches. They are not produced in series, though. The most expensive watches manufactured by the Chopard Company is the unique stuff for those who have everything they want but missing something. The Chopard designers deemed the watches lack the diamonds of 200 carats of various colors masked as the Swiss watches. The fancy and eccentric model has a small dial plate and the Swiss clockwork. It looks like a bracelet wholly studded with diamonds. Three key stones placed at the dial plate are heart-shaped with 15 carats of pink diamonds, 12 carats blue diamonds and 11 carats of white diamonds. The blossom clusters are placed around made from white and yellow diamonds. Yet, such a flowerbed really costs $25 million USD but what about watch? This knick-knack is likely the jewelry accessory or the astonishing detail more than a timepiece.

Curiously enough, the most expensive watch for men, not wrist watch, cost twice as less: Henry Graves Supercomplication by Patek Phillipe were sold at Sotheby's in 1999 for $11 002 500 USD to the unknown buyer. This timepiece was manufactured in 1932 ordered by Henry Graves, New York banker and collector of unique and expensive watches. When he showed his wiling to get the most complicated watch in the world in regards to mechanism, he acquired his timepiece in 5 years after the order was placed. The timepiece consisted of 900 details in the case made from 18-carat gold. Apart from various functions, this exclusive watch has the peculiarities, when the night sky in the box of the dial plate is the same as that from the window of the Graves family in New York. The watch shows the exact time of sunset and sunrise in New York.

The Patek Phillipe Company can boast with expensive watches as the third leader for the most costly watches is the model Platinum World Time by Patek Phillipe costing $4 million USD. This watch for men is the most expensive series watch for 2002.

The fifth place goes for the same company with its Sky Moon Tourbillon for $1,3 million USD giving the fourth place to the Swiss watch-making manufacture Vacheron Constantin which presents the most complicated wrist watch Tour de l'Ile consisting of 834 finest details costing $ 1,5 million USD.

The six position in the rating of the most expensive watches is taken by the Chopard again which achieves such promotion thanks to complicated mechanism and the amount of precious stones used. The watch-makers were unpleasantly astonished with the obvious arrogance and somewhat want of taste of the latest model which cannot be called even elegant. The total weight of diamonds of luxury Chopard Super Ice Cube is 66 carats and the dial plate proves to be called ice cube since it is like the frozen piece of ice costing $1,1 million USD.

Hublot Black Caviar Bang of one million USD is on the seventh line of the rating thanks to the diamonds again, though unlike the Chopard Super Ice Cube, the case of this model is made from the white gold incrusted with 322 polished black diamonds adding unique elegance to the look.

The eight place goes to Louis Moinet Magistralis costing $860 000 USD which is highly appreciated for the exclusivity: there is a piece of the real moon meteorite of 2000 years old inside the mechanism. This debris is the most expensive and rare to appreciate and the simple watch is worth of the cost.

The ninth place with the cost of $800 000 USD goes to Blancpain 1735 Grande Complication, consisting of 740 details which was assembled within 10 months. The tenth most expensive watch is 1907BA/12 А by the Breguet for $734 000 USD. This tourbillion with the mechanic winding from the 18-carat gold is decorated with the hand-made graving made by the best watch-makers of this watch manufacture.
