Who Is Laurence Graff?
Mr. Graff was born and bred in London. He started out as an apprentice to a jeweler in the Hatton Garden District. Being a mere apprentice did not last long, very soon he was creating his own jewelry pieces. By the time he was 24, he had already opened two of his own jewelry stores in London. As he traveled the globe, his clientele grew, and so did the demand for more important jewelry pieces. Astoundingly, by the age of 30, he had set up one of the biggest jewelry manufacturing business in Britain. In 1973, he became the first jeweler to receive the Queens Award to Industry and Export. He opened up his flagship store on Bond Street. Today, the company has 45 stores around the globe with corporate offices in London, New York, Geneva, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
Reacting to the existence of this particular most expensive watch for the year 2019, Mr Graff has this to say, “For many years I have thought about creating a truly remarkable watch that illustrates our all consuming passion for diamonds. The Hallucination has made my dream a reality.”
Speaking on the Hallucination “The Graff Hallucination is a sculptural masterpiece, a celebration of the miracle of colored diamonds.”
Every now and then we are confronted by rare beauties such as this one, but we are yet to hear the big names in Africa even make attempts to acquire rare stones for the same reason as opulence as their counterparts else where.
Anyways there you have it, the most expensive watch in the world for the year 2019
