10 – CHRISTOPHE CLARET MARGOT – $299’400
Christophe Claret’s Margot timepiece is a resoundingly feminine and complicated timepiece. It features a unique in-house movement that lets you play the childhood game of “He loves me, he loves me not”, where the petals of a flower are detached one by one to see if that boy or girl you like, likes you back. To play the game you press the pusher at two o’clock and a petal, or a pair of petals, recede under the dial. The answer to the question appears in the two openings at the bottom of the dial once all the petals have fallen away. To play again press on the pusher at four o’clock and the flower comes back to life. The Christophe Claret Margot is limited to 20 pieces.

5 – Jacob & Co. Caviar Emerald Tourbillon – $2.4 MILLION
Jacob & Co’s Caviar Emerald Tourbillon timepiece took almost two years to produce as it was not easy finding the right stones. Understandable as this watch totals 424 emeralds and all 32.39 carats of stones need to match. Even after having found the perfect stones, Jacob & Co still needed 12 months to set the stones. The emeralds completely cover the dial and case of the watch using an invisible setting, which is quite hard to achieve. The 18-karat white gold timepiece comes in a 47mm 18k white gold case and is powered by the brand’s tourbillon movement, which is visible through an opening at 6 o’clock. The Jacob & Co Caviar Emerald Tourbillon is, as you can imagine, a unique piece.
4 – Cartier Secret Phoenix Décor Watch – $2.76 MILLION

It is set with over 3,010 diamonds, totaling 80.13 carats and includes emeralds for eyes and one pear-shaped portrait cut diamond weighing 3.53 carats. The “secret” in the name of the timepiece refers to the fact that the watch is hidden in the phoenix.
3 – Chopard garden of kalahari – PRICE ON REQUEST
Chopard’s Garden of Kalahari Secret Watch is part of a six-piece jewelry collection set with diamonds cut from a single 342-carat flawless diamond.
