The 8 most unbelievably luxe watches on the market

You've come to the right place (minimalists, avert your gaze). This is wrist candy of the highest order - dripping in diamonds, gilt in white gold, embellished with emeralds and all. Because wearing a watch isn't simply about telling the time (if it were, we'd still be wearing our primary school Swatches). A classic timepiece is something to cherish, bestowed on a special occasion or purchased as the ultimate treat to commemorate a landmark event. If bling's your thing, prepare to fall hard for the sparkle-on-sparkle glory below. Each piece is precious, produced in seriously limited editions and designed to be prized for years to come. A word of warning: you might need your sunglasses (and quite possibly a bank loan...).
