Did you know that G-Shock made a watch that costs more than a house?

Yes, seriously.

And did you know that Swatch owns a very long list of Swiss luxury brands?


Great job! You know a lot about watches. Feel free to give yourself a pat on the back on our behalf.  


But no worries, you can always go over the answers and do it again.

#1. Which of these luxury brands is currently owned by the Swatch group?

Swatch and Omega recently unveiled the Moonswatch, based on a Swatch but inspired by the Omega Speedmaster.

Priced at $250, the watch is still super hot in the market even months after its initial release.

Along with Omega, Swatch also owns Breguet, Blancpain, Longines, Tissot, Hamilton and others.

#2. Who is the most expensive Rolex watch in the world nicknamed after?

In 2021, a Rolex Daytona Ref. 6239 belonging to Paul Newman was auctioned for $17.75 million in New York.

Even though Rolex only uses reference numbers for its watches, collectors usually split Daytonas into two categories:

‘Paul Newman Daytona’ (Ref. 6239) and ‘Non-Paul Newman Daytona’ (every other Daytona).

#3. When collectors talk about the 'Holy Trinity' of watches, they usually refer to...

No one knows who invented the moniker, but the expression the ‘Holy Trinity [of watchmaking]” originated in the 1960s.

The watch brands are Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin.

#4. What kind of watch does tennis legend Rafael Nadal wear during his matches?

Rafael Nadal has been a brand ambassador for Richard Mille for over ten years now.

He always wears different RM models when he’s playing.

#5. Only one of these watch and car partnerships doest NOT exist: which is it?

Ferrari had a long-standing collaboration with Hublot, before signing a new partnership to Richard Mille about a year ago.

So no, no connection with Omega.

#6. How much does the most expensive G-Shock watch cost?

The G-Shock you see here was made to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the brand.

It’s made from 18k gold and it costs $69,500!

#7. Which iconic Gangster movie provided the inspiration for Jacob & Co's 'singing' timepiece?

The Godfather timepiece is part of the ‘Opera’ collection.

The watch chimes on request, playing a musical theme through the incorporated carillon.

#8. Which brand made a watch with an integrated Bitcoin wallet?

Franck Muller introduced the ‘Vanguard Encrypto’ in 2019.

The watch incorporates a Bitcoin wallet with its own Bitcoin address.

It is no longer available new but you can find pre-owned models in the secondary market for around $20,000
