Incredibly Fancy Patek Philippe Grandmaster Watch Is Going On Sale For A Cool USD$50 Million

Depending on your taste and bank balance, you might have an expensive watch or piece of jewellery hanging on your wrist.

This could be in the tens, hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars and can really establish your style.

But if you have a spare USD$50 million (£39 million/AUD$72 million) to spare, then you might want to gaze at this beautifully crafted watch that is going up for sale.

There are only seven of these Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime 5175R-001 in existence and it's your lucky chance to grab one for your collection.

The line was released six years ago to celebrate the brand's 175th anniversary.

It has two dials, 20 complications, a swivelling case, and four different chiming mechanisms. In addition to those features, it also has 108 embedded jewels, a sapphire crystal, a rose gold case, a crocodile skin bracelet, a 72 hour power reserve, Calibre GS AL 36-750 movement, and manual winding.

To think: you'd pay all that money and still have to wind it up yourself.

It's reportedly the most complicated chiming wristwatch ever created.

They were initially sold at USD$2.7 million (£2.1 million/AUD$3.8 million) and have since skyrocketed in price due to their limited availability and their exceptional beauty.

Surely, the person who ends up buying this wouldn't ever want to wear it as a single scratch could wipe millions of dollars of value off it.

There are loads of things you could spend USD$50 million on. You could get 28,000 iPhone 11 Pro Maxes (512GB), six F-16 Fighter Jets, or maybe 75 Rolls-Royce Phantoms. You could seriously help a small country's GDP or extend a community organisation's life by decades.

Or, of course, you could buy a wrist watch that you'll likely never wear. Just add it to the list of expensive stuff most of us could only dream about purchasing.

Another thing on that list was the recently revealed Lamborghini yacht.

Lamborghini is considered one of the most premium supercar brands on the planet - and now it has teamed up with The Italian Sea Group to create a US $3.4 million yacht.

It's called the Tecnomar 63 and it looks unbelievably impressive. The 63 number is in reference to when Lamborghini was founded in 1963.

The ultra-light vessel is made from carbon fibre and will be powered by two V12 engines, each making 2,000 horsepower.

There will only be 63 of these bad boys produced and the price tag will mean only the superbly rich will be able to afford it. The first boat will be available to buy next year, so you've got a bit of time to start saving.
