 OK, now we enter the “fully iced” zone with a pocket watch made by Parmigiani Fleurier.

This pocket watch takes two years to manufacture.

Price: $2,700,000

For a mere $2.7 million, you can buy the Franck Muller Aeternitas Mega 4 Grande Sonnerie Westminster Carillon. It’s a mouthful, but consider this is the most complicated wristwatch in the world.

This complicated watch has now replaced the Patek Philippe Caliber 89, which previously held the title of the world’s most complicated watch.

Cartier – Secret watch with phoenix décor

 

Price: $2,755,000

A one-of-a-kind Cartier wristwatch shaped as a phoenix is created from 18-carat rhodium-plated white gold and set with emeralds, brilliant-cut diamonds and one pear-shaped diamond weighing 3.53 carats. More than 80 carats of diamond are used on this timepiece.

The bracelet is also covered with 350 baguette-cut diamonds.

Louis Moinet – Meteoris

 

Price: $4,599,487

OK, including this one’s a bit of a cheat. The Louis Moinet Meteoris is, in fact, a set of four tourbillon watches, but they are sold as a set. Each of the watches have dials made of out-of-this-world materials, such as meteorite from Mars, the moon, an asteroid, and an ancient meteorite called “Rosetta Stone.” When you buy the set, you get a complimentary planetarium that depicts the solar system.

Patek Philippe Calibre 89

 Price tag: $6,000,000

In 1989, Patek Philippe created the Calibre 89 Pocket Watch to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary. It wasn’t just a simple pocket watch. (At that time, it was the world’s most complicated watch and weighed over two pounds.) It includes no less than 1,728 components and took Patek Philippe five years of research and four years to manufacture. The cool thing is that it also indicates the temperature, as if we needed a mechanical pocket watch to do that. Since Franck Muller made the Aeternitas Mega 4, this is no longer the world’s most complicated watch
