If you feel like you need something to make you feel unique and you have a few million dollars just lying around, then maybe you should think about buying one of these pieces.

Some of these watches are one-piece editions, others were made in just a few copies, and only two of them are valued at under $ 1 million. The most expensive of them would be a big hit to the budget of many successful businessmen.
Which are the clocks that if you had and sold them, would ensure the welfare of your family for three generations, and what is their actual price?
