Wednesday, November 14, 2007
Time is said to be precious but these beauties are simply luxurious......

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch for men features an 18K gold case and bracelet. The Royal Oak watch has automatic movement. Price: $24,800, though some Royal Oaks are priced as high as $599,400.

The Blancpain Tourbillon Rattrapante Chronograph watch (model 218-9F1-3427-0001) features automatic winding and comes in a limited series of 99 pieces. The casing and band are platinum. The face features a white dial with white Roman numerals and a window to view the tourbillon escapement. The retail price is $132,000.

The Franck Muller Curvex Tourbillon Imperiale Watch (model L133368) features an 18K gold case and a bracelet buckle. The blue tourbillon dial has luminous numbers. With manually-wound mechanical movement and a hand-stitched blue leather strap this lists at $87,663.

The Datograph by Lange watch (model 403.035) is another highly coveted Lange & Söhne series. This model is in platinum, with Calibre L951.1 movement. It also features a manually wound chronograph, with flyback, and precise jumping minute counter, under a sapphire-crystal glass and caseback. This lists for $49,600.

The Patek Philippe Grand Complications Mens Watch (model 5036/1J) comes in an 18K yellow gold case and bracelet. It features day, month, moon phase and power reserve indicator sub dials. It has a see-through sapphire crystal back with self-winding automatic movement. This limited production series model has a list price of $34,200.

Looks great to admire but u must have hit upon a huge fortune to own them. The interesting fact is that their price tag doesnt stop them from being purchased,the swiss watch exports enjoyed a sustained growth in 2006 with demand remaining stronger for luxury products and even in September 2007 the value of Swiss watch exports amounted to 1.327 billion francs.Really there are must be a whole bunch of millionaires out there who could afford them, but there are a lot more ways to spend it worthwhile instead of just owning a fancy metal piece.With more the money,responsiblities should also increase,we can also share it with the less fortunate than throw it away in unimportant trivials.Luxury is not a necessity,its all in our minds to choose the right thing.
