These are not likely to be the most expensive quartz movement based watches out there, but they are up there. Priced between about $112,000 to $215,000 these jewelry watches for women don't even have fine mechanical movements. To a degree this makes sense given their small stature and life in a jewelry box or safe unless taken out for special occasions, but for me this is in contradiction to what haute horology is about today.
Swiss watch maker Carl F. Bucherer
did a nice job designing this colorful Alacria Royal limited edition collection of lady's watches. They are colorful like candy, made of 18k gold covered with diamonds and either traditional blue sapphires, orange sapphires, emeralds, or rubies. The colored gems are placed in two parallel slight arches on the dial as well as on the bracelet. The shape on the dial looks somewhat like an hourglass - which makes sense on a watch. As for jewelry watches these are nice, though it makes sense that each of the four watches will be limited to just 25, because as the "Royal" name states, the price of these watches will likely keep them in the hands of ultra privileged only.
