We all have heard of the phrase that “diamonds are forever.” Diamonds are the absolute representation of luxury. There’s something about these stones that exhibits elegance and sophistication like no other. When put on a timepiece, diamonds change the way an otherwise normal watch would sit on your wrist. All styles of watches could be improved by the simple addition of a glittering and brilliant diamond. There are a lot of watches out there that have diamonds on them, but not all of them necessarily convey the refinement that naturally comes with these stones.
A diamond watch is a perfect way to treat yourself without throwing away your hard-earned cash. As much an investment piece as an accessory, a diamond watch is something you’ll wear for years to come. Diamond watches for men and women are the best investment accessory anyone could think of, so here are some top diamond watches around the world that would make your heart skip a beat.
The Hublot Big Bang:
It is rightly said that the designing and assembling of a watch of this repertoire is nearly impossible. It is because the components used in this watch are in limited supply in the world, overall and it is not at all possible to make this watch in greater quantities, therefore, its availability is extremely limited. It is encrusted with 1,200 diamonds weighing 140 carats in all. These include six stones that each weigh at least three carats. The company assigned 17 people to the project and it took them 14 months to finish creating the watch. The Hublot is not the most expensive watch in the world, but it surely is among the most expensive watches in the world.

The 1976 Happy Diamonds:
The significance of the name “Happy Diamonds” goes deep into the Black Forest that gave a vision to one of the Chopard designers and as a result came this 1976 Happy Diamond watch. The designer saw that the droplets on the leaves allowed the sunshine to sparkle through, and rainbow colors bounced everywhere through the forest. Ronald Kurowski knew that this vision must be transferred into diamonds. He realized that unmounted diamonds would sparkle like the water drops, and this was the birth of Happy Diamond Chopard watch. The iconic 1976 timepiece was shaped like a cushion, and it was large, with a generous strap. It won the Golden Rose of Baden-Baden that year, which was very prestigious indeed. With diamonds floating loose inside the watch case, and easily seen through the glass, this timeless beauty has different price range according to your need. One of the most elegant timepieces from the Chopard collection, this watch will definitely make you feel happy once you own it (as the name suggests).
