Christie's is auctioning off a Richard Mille, its most expensive ever
RM56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

If you're the average guy with 1-2 watches from brands like Omega, TAG Heuer, or Tissot in your closet, then a Christie's auction will certainly be shocking for you. The auction house is gearing up for its "Important Watches" auction at Rockefeller Center on June 10, where they will showcase 118 spectacular pieces, and when we say "spectacular," we're talking more than the price of your house and all your friend's houses combined.
Christie's auction: Richard Mille 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

The main attraction at this auction is a limited-edition Richard Mille watch that's expected to be the most expensive ever sold by Christie's New York. This particular model, the RM56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire, is one of only 10 ever made and is expected to fetch up to $4 million dollars; that's a lot of zeros. This Richard Mille watch was first released back in 2014 and is famous for its use of sapphire, which provides an unmatched level of transparency in which you can see the skeletonized tourbillon within. Each 3-part sapphire case took 40 days to produce, with the sapphire bridges requiring 400 hours of labor. To put that into perspective, 2 whole weeks have 336 hours.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch bi-color

Omega watches have launched a bi-color Speedmaster Moonwatch in 18-karat Moonshine Gold or Sedna Gold combined with stainless steel.
