Queen Elizabeth II wears a watch worth US$4 million, according to new research

Watches have long been a status symbol for the rich and famous, and the British royal family are certainly no exception. 

Estimated to be worth a staggering US$88 billion, numerous members of the British royal family have been spotted wearing the finest Swiss timepieces over the years. However, according to research by H&T Pawnbrokers, there's one special watch in particular that boasts the biggest price tag. But who wears it?

Unsurprisingly, it is Queen Elizabeth II who takes pride of place at the top of the list when it comes to the priciest ticker worn by her blue-blooded family.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre 101, which adorned Her Majesty's wrist on her coronation day in 1953, is worth an estimated US$4 million, according to H&T Pawnbrokers. 

A gift from then president of France Vincent Auriol, the stunning timepiece is embellished with 110 white diamonds.

Powered by the Calibre 101, which was first introduced in 1929 and quickly revolutionised watchmaking for women because of its small size, the Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 line had two high jewellery watches added to it in 2020. Both were entirely original in design.
