Who else would make such expensive and fabulous watches but the Swiss? Franck Muller is a watch maker and a company bearing the slogan, “Master of Complications”.

The market price is said to be $2,400,000.
- Patek Philippe 5004T

In an auction in 2013, this perpetual calendar split-second chronograph timepiece was sold for $3,985,000.
- Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor
The Excalibur watch collection by no other than, Roger Dubuis and his business partner, Carlos Dias, is unique and special because of it silicon case. It weighs half than titanium but is four times more durable. Dubuis, who worked for Peter Patek for 14 years opened his own watch manufacturing company in the 1980s and this is one of his recent timepieces. The Quatuor sells for $1,125,000.
