Not anyone can wear a Roger Dubuis watch. Their designs are not what you would call conventional. They require a strong personality to pull them off — a potent blend of sensuality and confidence, with a big helping of irreverence and a taste for the dramatic.
The Quatuor is the most ambitious yet singularly least understood high-watchmaking project ever undertaken by Roger Dubuis. Replace “Roger Dubuis” with “any Swiss watch brand” and you could still make a solid case for the truth of that statement.
We’ve all experienced sticker shock while perusing the world’s most expensive watches. There are even a few brands for which six-figure price tags are the norm — “expensive watches” by almost anyone’s definition. But a handful of luxury watches go well beyond “pricey” and into the rarefied “million dollar watch” category, i.e., costing more than $1 million. We’ve compiled eight of the world’s most expensive watches, all breaking the $1 million ceiling, in which the only things grander than the complications are the price tags.
