We couldn’t possibly talk about pocket watches without mentioning the watch of the year: the Vacheron Constantin Reference 57260. With it, Vacheron Constantin grabs the title of “world’s most complicated watch,” away from Patek Philippe, who held it for 83 years with the Henry Graves Supercomplication. It did so by adding not one, not two, but 33 complications - cementing its position as one of the leaders of the industry. For more information, please click here...

What kind of pocket watch can half a million dollars get you? It’s a question we had never really thought of, until Roger Dubuis introduced the Excalibur Spider Pocket Time Instrument at Watches & Wonders. The answer? A massive pocket watch made from titanium that looks incredibly avant-garde! The design is based on the insane calibre RD101 found inside the Excalibur Quatuor 16Hz wristwatch flipped it 90 degrees counterclockwise and re-cased it inside an enormous titanium pocket watch.

So you can turn a wristwatch into a pocket watch, but surely you can’t do the opposite? Not according to Urwerk. The independent brand’s UR-1001 Titan is actually the brand’s iconic UR-1001 Zeit Device, with a custom-made strap for the wrist. According to the brand, it was made at the request of a very close collector. One with arms the size of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s! The watch measures a whopping 106 x 62 x 23 mm.
