5 Of The World’s Most Expensive Pilot’s Watches From Patek Philippe, Breguet, MB&F, IWC, And Richard Mille
by Bhanu Chopra
Recent years have tilted heavily in favor of steel sports watches. And it is nearly impossible to purchase many stainless steel Rolex, Patek Philippe, or Audemars Piguet models by just walking into a retail store (for more thoughts on this check out GaryG’s False Scarcity And Steel Sports Watches: A Collector’s View).
And if no other event has proved the popularity of steel sports watches, just look at the sale of Paul Newman’s own Paul Newman Rolex Daytona, which fetched a cool $17,752,500 at Phillips’ October 2017 New York auction.
This unique high-profile steel sports watch aside, I find it equally worthy to discuss some of today’s most expensive pilot’s watches – which, if you have the cash, you might have a much easier time obtaining.
These are stock watches from luxury brands, available in luxurious metals and ranging in price between $25,000 and $1.2 million in price. Whether you are a desk pilot who enjoys aviation-themed watches or a jetsetter who flies the friendly skies in private Gulfstreams, these watches will deliver the perfect combination of sophistication with an abundance of horological clout.
