5 'most expensive' things you probably didn't know about

The idea of a million-dollar perfume or an 11 million dollar watch wouldn't even cross the mind of most people but, believe it or not, a bottle of perfume that costs more than a million dollars and a watch that cost more then 11 million dollars exists.

The Sharp Guy team loves a good list so we've put one together with the 5 'most expensive' things you probably didn't know about. Let us know

Perfume

SHUMUKH - $1.295 million


In March 2019, a large bottle of perfume, adorned with thousands of diamonds and precious gems and pearls was unveiled in Dubai by the Spirit of Dubai Parfums, an ultra-luxury fragrance brand.

Shumukh means 'deserving the highest' in Arabic and the bottle is adorned with 3,571 diamonds (totaling 38.55 carats), topaz, pearls, 2479.26 grams of 18 carat gold 5892.88 grams of pure silver

Shoes

Tom Ford Custom by Jason Arasheben - $2 million



In 2014, America's Got Talent host, Nick Cannon wanted to make a statement, and what better way to do that than to wear a pair of $2 million all-diamond shoes. Cannon got acclaimed jewelry designer Jason Arasheben to custom design a pair of Tom Ford shoes with more than 14,000 full cut round white diamonds, carefully set on white gold and with a total carat weight of 340 carats. The shoes took more than 2,000 man-hours and almost a year to complete.

Car

Bugatti La Voiture Noire - €11 million


To mark its 110th anniversary, French luxury car brand, Bugatti unveiled its new hyper sports car 'La Voiture Noire". With "La Voiture Noire", Bugatti has once again shown that it produces the world's most precious and exclusive hyper sports cars. The two-door car with its breathtakingly sculpted bodywork is especially elegant thanks to the use of deep black carbon fibre. In the world of the automobile, "La Voiture Noire" is a name with a special resonance: Ettore Bugatti's son Jean developed and drove one of only four Type 57 SC Atlantic coupés produced. He called his Atlantic "La Voiture Noire" – the black car. This vehicle disappeared without trace before the Second World War. Nowadays, it is considered one of the great mysteries in the history of the automobile and it would be incredibly valuable.

Watch

Patek Philippe Ref. 1518 in Stainless Steel - $11.1 million


Only four of these watches were ever made and they are the only perpetual calendar chronograph made in steel. First unveiled in 1941 at the Swiss Watch Fair Basel (now known as Baselworld), this watch was a show of strength from Patek Philippe amidst a very turbulent time in Europe. The combination of a perpetual calendar and a chronograph is a mark of technical ingenuity that very few watchmakers have mastered and no other brand has the kind of history (or success) that Patek has had in selling them. Past owners include King Farouk, the penultimate King of Egypt and Sudan.

Whisky

Macallan Valerio Adami 1926 - £848,000


The bottle is limited edition from Macallan, a Scottish whisky distillery, and was from a vat distilled in 1926 and bottled 60 years later. It has been described as the holy grail of whiskies because of its combination of rarity, vintage and unique artwork. Only 24 bottles of this vintage were produced and Peter Blake, creator of The Beatles' 1967 Sgt, Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover as well as other popular album covers, and Pop Art pioneer, Valerio Adami were commissioned to design the labels - 12 of Adami and 12 of Blake.
