n re­cent years, Graff has proved to have some­thing of a knack for break­ing records. Last year, the brand un­veiled its US$55 mil­lion (Dh202m) Hal­lu­ci­na­tion watch at Basel­world, earn­ing it the ti­tle of most valu­able watch yet cre­ated. In the same year, the Graff Vivid Yel­low di­a­mond set a new world auc­tion record for a yel­low di­a­mond when it sold for $16.34m (Dh60m) at Sotheby’s Geneva. And at this year’s Basel­world, Graff un­veiled what is be­ing dubbed as the world’s most valu­able trans­formable time­piece. The Fas­ci­na­tion time­piece – priced at $40m (Dh147m) – is cov­ered in a re­mark­able 152.96 carats of white di­a­monds. At its cen­tre is a 38.13-carat D Flaw­less pear-shaped di­a­mond that can also be placed into a be­spoke set­ting and worn as a ring. Al­ter­na­tively, the di­a­mond watch face can be re­moved from the piece and can in­stead be worn as a bracelet.
