The Most Important Watch Ever Made

This is quiet simply the most unique and complicated timepiece ever made.

The Henry Graves’ Patek Philippe Supercomplication represents the pinacle of watchmaking, featuring 24 complications, twenty-four. It took 7 years to develop, starting in 1925, no computer involved in the process. It weights around 500 grams and 70mm in diameter.

It’s been previously sold in 1999, for a staggering $11’000’000.

Today, on November 11th, 2014, Sotheby’s will be making history, again, by auctioning the most important watch ever made.
