8. Bugatti Super Sport Watch by Parmigiani

“The fastest watch in the world” – how does that sound to you? A bit odd, doesn’t it? A watch can only be faster than another one when it doesn’t work properly. Well, in this case the description only comes to emphasize the connection between the watch and the famous Bugatti Super Sport. You should know that this is also one of the most expensive watches out there: $260,00 a piece.

Created by Maximilian Büsser and Friends, this watch is almost intimidatingly stylish.
