Produced as a limited edition of only seven pieces, the Vacheron Constantin Tour de I’Ile, which celebrated the brand’s 250th anniversary, is priced at $1,538,160. This expensive watch has two faces (on the front and back) to make room for its many displays, including a second time zone, perpetual calendar, and sunset time indicator, among others. The Tour de l’Ile may be the most complicated timepiece on the list of watches over $1 million.
