Dream watch? I'd probably go with De Bethune DB25 Quetzalcoatl.

Some really amazing pieces.  I've always been a fan of the 5016.  Amazing piece.  I've seen it in person and it is surprisingly thick.  I've been lucky enough to also have held the Hybris Mechanica.  It's a giant but an absolute marvel.

 

That's a very unique De Bethune - I didn't know a Quetzalcoatl version existed!  I've seen photos of a Mayan version, but this one is totally off the wall.  It it must be really something in person.

Here are the ones that I would like to have in my collection...

 

Hublot Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie

 

"...limited to only eight pieces, earns its $1 million price tag with the 1,185 baguette diamonds covering every surface of the watch, from the case and bracelet to the openworked dial. For the case alone, a 15-person team had to perform 1,800 hours of cutting and 200 hours of dimensional checking and quality control. Certainly one of the most expensive watches ever made by Hublot."

 

 

 

Greubel Forsey Art Piece 1

 

"...was revealed at the 2013 SIHH, and quickly rose to the upper echelon of the “most expensive watches ever made” rankings, with a price of CHF 1.5 million (approximately $1.6 million). The watch’s standout feature is the nanosculpture by artist Willard Wigan in the crown. The Art Piece 1 also has an inclined tourbillon."

 

 

 

 

Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 56-02 Sapphire

 

"...combines the tripartite sapphire case of the RM 56-01 with the brand’s revolutionary “cabled movement” design. Click here for more info on Richard Mille’s most expensive watch yet, which breaks not only the $1 million barrier but the $2 million one as well, priced at a cool $2,020,000."

 

 

and of course, the watch that is one of the most expensive watches ever:

 

 

A. Lange & Söhne Grand Complication

 

"...unveiled at SIHH 2013, is priced at a staggering 1.92 million euros (approximately $2,497,000 in U.S. currency). The Grand Complication features a grand sonnerie and petit sonnerie in addition to a minute repeater, a monopusher chronograph with a split-seconds function and jumping seconds, and a perpetual calendar with a moon-phase display."

 

 

 

...I would rather own one of these exquisite timepieces, and then sell it.  I would use the money to purchase/build a dream home, purchase my mother a home, and also donate some to the wrestling team that I coach.
