The Chopard 201 carat watch is a luxury wristwatch featuring 874 diamonds1 in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. The watch sold for $25 million in early 2000 making it the most expensive watch in the world2.

The watch resembles a flower both in function and form, with a mechanism that allows the diamonds that enclose the face to flip open like petals unfolding at the break of day.
