This Watch Costs $2.6 Million Dollars. When You See How It's Made, You'll Understand Why
To some people, wristwatches might be an antiquated blast from the past. Many time-telling devices such as alarm clocks and wristwatches have met their demise with the advent of cell phones. In spite of that, the long-heralded craft of watchmaking lives on. Patek Philippe, an ultra-luxury watch manufacturer based in Switzerland, recently celebrated its 175th anniversary with the release of its most complicated wristwatch to date, the Grandmaster Chime. This 18k gold, ornate centerpiece has two faces: one side shows the time, and the other shows a calendar. Get ready to shell out some big bucks if you would like to purchase one. The company only made seven watches that each cost approximately $2.6 million.
