Meet the £16K Audermars Piguet watch (and that's the cheap one)

As well as being one of the most expensive watches to grace the Stuff gadget radar, it's also the proud owner of the longest monicker we've seen in a while.

One - deep breath - Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Rubens Barrichello Chronograph you set you back a cool £16,200 for the Titanium version, which be limited to 1,000 units. If that's too common for you, 500 Rose Golds editions will shortly be on sale at £32,650 each while the Platinum will cost you a frankly terrifying £53,950 a pop.

There are a mere 150 Platinum versions being made: 8 million quid's worth of luxury watches.

Wildly expensive materials aside, there's some serious craftmanship going on here, with Audemars theming the watch around Barrichello, who's a Honda F1 champ.

The eight screws on the watch face, for example, are designed to look like engine screws, the bezel joint puportedly resembles ventilated brake discs, the crown a gearing part and the pushpieces apparently echo air extractors. We got lost on the bezel bit.

There's a leather strap, too, which is made from crocodile hide if you're a fierce reptile type able to afford the Platinum version.
