The “most valuable watch ever created” was recently on display at the Swiss trade show Baselworld, and it’s valued at £33 million (about $54.9 million in American dollars).
British jeweler Graff Diamonds constructed the “Hallucination” watch out of 110 carats worth of rare diamonds. The lavish accessory took thousands of hours to make and showcases the beauty of the colored gemstones.
Company chairman Laurence Graff explains his motivation behind creating such a valuable watch:
“The Graff Hallucination is a sculptural masterpiece; a celebration of the miracle of coloured diamonds. For many years I have thought about creating a truly remarkable watch that illustrates our all consuming passion for diamonds. The Hallucination has made my diamond dream a reality.”
Such an expensive watch isn’t by any means practical, but Graff and his team have certainly created a true work of diamond art.
