Rappers, Businessmen, Politicians, Actors, and Pro Athletes love to sport the bling. A major style accessory for successful individuals is their watch. Rolex, Breitling, Tag Heuer, and Hublot are just a few premium watch companies that charge anywhere from 8,000$ to upwards of 100,000$ for a watch. This poses a question. How much is too much for a wrist watch?
Chopard is an elegantly extravagent company from Switzerland that has been topping the charts in terms of expensive watch sales. Chopard started in the 1800s selling luxury pocket watches and sold its first watch in 1861. In 2003 Chopard sold a diamond "Ice Cube" wrist watch for 164,000$.
So really, how much is too much to pay for a wrist watch? 10,000$? 20,000$? What about 100,000$? Try 25,000,000$. Yep, that's right, 25 Million Dollars. Who could imagine that?! Chopard has created this massive watch. This watch is the 201 carat Chopard. There are 3 large heart shaped diamonds, a 15 carat pink diamond, a 12 carat blue diamond, and an 11 carat white diamond. There are an extra 163 carats of white and yellow diamonds to bring the total number of carats to 201.
One might question the practicality of this watch, but if you have 25 million dollars to spend on a wrist watch, you probably have much more than that to spend on whatever you want! This beautiful watch is a one of a kind treasure that will be cherished by whoever owns it. By the look of the watch it may seem as though this will only ever be on display. It seems like it could damage your wrist!
