Joaillene 101 Manchette by Jaeger Le Coultre:
This watch is the most expensive watch in the world. The watch is certainly priceless. Joaillene 101 Manchette looks more like a bracelet and is made up of a series of polished and diamond-set squares. It applies the mechanical manually wound Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 movement. The watch has an exquisite silver-colored dial with a sapphire crystal and a winding crown on the case back. It is available with 576 diamonds and 18 carat white gold or with 400 diamonds and 11 onyx cabochons. It is said that this watch was Jaeger LeCoultre’s gift to Elizabeth II on the occasion of her 60th year of reign.

Jaeger-LeCoultre is a luxury watch and clock manufacturer based in Switzerland and it dates back to the first half of the nineteenth century. The brand has hundreds of inventions and more than a thousand calibres to its name, including the world’s smallest calibre, the world’s most complicated wristwatch and a timepiece of near-perpetual movement.
