Well, if you’re feeling very rich, there is now a watch worth five million US dollars (32 million yuan) on the market.

Swiss watchmaker Hublot has unveiled what is believed to be the world’s most expensive timepiece.

The white gold watch is encrusted with 1,282 dazzling diamonds, and took 17 people 14 months to make. The precious stones cover the entire face, as well as the band.

Jean-Claude Biver, president of Hublot, said it would be hard to make a more expensive watch “because the surface of the watch is limited.”
