Nice Watch! Too Bad It’s Way Way Way Out Of Anyone’s Price Range – Except For One Bidder

 

The world’s most expensive watch has been sold in Switzerland for $31 million through Christie’s. A private bidder purchased the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime. The watch has a reversible face in rose gold and black ebony.

 

 

Sabine Kegel, the head of Christie’s watch department in Geneva, told The Guardian it ‘does nearly everything except making coffee.’  The watch is loaded with four spring barrels to create 20 complications – in watch making this is is any function that exists in addition to telling time – and has five chiming modes.

 

Two chimes are patented world firsts: an acoustic alarm which sounds at a preset time and a date repeater which can sound the date whenever the wearer wishes.
