Watches have been around for a long time, and it’s no surprise that people have developed lots of different ways to track the passage of time. We’ve even mastered the ability to not only tell time but also see it. One way we do this is by wearing watches. But did you know that some watches can be really expensive? That’s right – there are actually quite a few models out there today that sell for more than $1 million! Today, we’ll take a look at 10 of the most expensive Audemars Piguet watches on the market today so you can get an idea of what kinds of things drive up watch prices. But first, let’s start with a basic question:
What determines the price of a watch? Well, there are a few different factors that might affect how much a watch costs. The materials used to make the watch can greatly impact its price, as can the rarity or exclusivity of it. Some watches you might see on our list today cost so much because they’re made from extremely rare and expensive materials (such as gold and diamonds) or feature complicated mechanics that are difficult to produce and require expert craftsmanship. But the reasons why these watches cost so much don’t really matter – what matters is that they exist! So with all of this in mind, let’s take a look at 10 of the most expensive Audemars Piguet watches out there.
