However, these high-priced luxury watches still have some very impressive features that shoppers of all kinds would be impressed to hear about. If you want to learn about the most impressive features of some of the most expensive watches in the world that will cost more than buying a television ever will, keep reading below.
The Breguet Marie Antoinette
The Breguet Marie Antionette watch was designed by the man himself, Breguet. This stunning phone has over 800 more pieces than your so-called high-tech iPhone. The self winding watch features a minute repeater, perpetual calendar, equation of time, jumping hour, power reserve indicator and bimetallic thermometer. The extravagant timepiece took 44 years to complete, however, it was eventually stolen, never to be seen again. Swatch later acquired Breguet and reproduced the watch using images of the original. Although they have received 8-digit offers, they have never sold the watch.
Christophe Claret Dualtow Night Eagle
The Christophe Claret Dualtow Night Eagle watch is priced at just under $500,000. This watch has 68 pieces, which is not quite as impressive as the Breguet. However, it also features high-tech capabilities like a chronograph, planetary gear system, mini gong and hammer, and multiple tourbillons, which help to counter the effect of gravity on the watch. This is definitely much more impressive than any LG watch features. In addition, the high-end watch is encrusted with 65 jewels. Not only is the Night Eagle one of the most expensive watches, it is also one of the most high-tech.
