  • Each timepiece retails for at least $10,000 and no brand appears twice
  • Discover incredible watches from historic brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega and Mont Blanc


Elite Traveler, the world’s leading private jet lifestyle magazine, is excited to launch the Top 50 Watches in the World. The list includes supreme examples of all areas of horology, from technical advancements in movements and chronometry to artistic engraving, complex gem setting, astonishing designs, as well as superb sports and classic watches. We believe our selection truly highlights each brand’s innovation, technical prowess and mastery of the art of watchmaking.

Highlights include:

Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon


In its newest high-complication timepiece, Greubel Forsey combines its coveted Quadruple Tourbillon with the round globe GMT mechanism via an all-new, handwound caliber consisting of an incredible 705 parts. Also within the movement are three fast-rotating barrels that supply energy.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel


Thanks to six years of research and development, the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel watch is one of the most complicated pieces ever produced by Jaeger-LeCoultre. It is the brand’s fifth Gyrotourbillon (an escapement with multiple-axis tourbillons rotating at different speeds).

Graff Inspired by Twombly Watch


The shimmering timepiece boasts a miniature, brilliant-cut, diamond-set dial with a baguette-set outer bezel. Ribbons of diamonds form a swirling bracelet that surrounds the dial and fans out over the wrist. A host of diamond cuts, including baguette, brilliant and a variety of fancy cuts, are used in this wearable work of art.

Dior Grand Soir Reine des Abeilles

Price on Request

Turning to Christian Dior’s beautiful gardens that brought him so much inspiration, the House of Dior creates an exceptional new series of one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by the bumblebee. In total, more than 2,280 diamonds weighing 20.21 carats are carefully handset on this high-jewelry timepiece.
