8. Patek Philippe, 1939 Platinum World Time – $4 Million
Get used to seeing this manufacturer a few more times. Patek Philippe aren’t just famous today for their high-end watches, they were famous almost as soon as they started making time pieces in the mid-19th century. Famous customers include Queen Victoria, Pope Pius IX as well as many other famous (and infamous) world leaders. The Patek Philippe Platinum World Time sold in 2002 for a then-record price of $4 million. While at first glance it doesn’t look like an overly complicated watch, the Platinum World Time had 41 cities, regions and countries stamped on a rotating bezel. The Platinum finish only adds to the quality and price.
