Watches have been treated as art since ages. While the basic watches that people wear on a day to day basis have a few functions, some watches have some extravagant and intricate features. These watches are limited edition for the amount of time it takes to make them, most of them even being handcrafted. These features and the fact that they are handmade makes them incredibly expensive, and very few people can set their hands on them. Here’s a list of the world’s most complicated watches ever made.

GreubelForsey Invention GMT
The unique aspect of this watch is that a globe sits on the left side of the watch. Since the globe is only attached from the south pole to the watch, you can watch the globe from every angle. The globe rotates the anticlockwise direction, thus indicating the time of the day in various parts of the globe.
These are some of the most complicated and expensive watches in the world. While they are all amazing creations, it still isn’t possible for a majority of people to afford them. Even so, these watches are out of stock quite easily, and there is always a scarcity of these watches which makes them worth even more. This opens doors to swiss replica watches.
