The creation of expensive bejewelled watches is a long tradition within the relatively brief history of the industry, which really only got going in the latter half of the 19th century. During World WarI wristwatches became popular with military officers and watchmakers such as Cartier & Patek Philippe began marketing limited edition, high priced timepieces expressly for the connoisseur. Gregory Pond, one of the most authoritative journalists in the watch industry, composed his rating among watch brands. He based the watch brand on the following criteria: the range of circulation, distribution, the growth potential, creativity and the effectiveness and finally the principal group of customers. Rolex appears on the first place. Then goes Cartier and Patek Philippe closes the three of leaders. It is interesting to know that for the first time in the list of the most expensive watch brands you can find not only Luxury but also the first mass fashion-brand Guess. The brand got the honorable 38th place due to the high rate of popularity and creativity potential.

World's Most Expensive Clock

Cambridge has created a piece of history by launching an extraordinary clock. Launched by Cambridge professor Stephen Hawking, this two million dollar wonder took 7 years to be brought to life.

 The clock is designed by John Taylor, who has already made a reputation for creating bizarre time pieces. The philosophy behind this clock, in Taylor’s word is that “once a minute is gone you can’t get it back” and this is visualized in the form of a huge grasshopper that literally eats the minutes. The clock has the grasshopper with an open mouth, that keeps opening its mouth wide and when the minute is complete, it swallows the time and gulps it down!
