Swiss watchmaker Louis Moinet has partnered with Wealth Solutions, to add a drop of oldest whisky in the world into a glass chamber in 50 watches.
The ‘whisky watch’ – a timepiece made by Swiss company Louis Moinet in collaboration with luxury collection expert Wealth Solutions – will be launched next month.
Whisky Watch is a unique watch that not only measures time in hours, minutes and seconds but is also a genuine time capsule. The oldest whisky in the world – Glenlivet 1862 is hidden inside. Cheers to the watch you can feel the spirit of the 19th century Scotland and travel in time to the period of steamers, the early days of railway and the Industrial Revolution.
Each of the 50 watches – 40 with steel cases, priced at CHF18,000 each and 10 with red gold cases, priced at CHF46,000 each – contains a drop of Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862, reputed to be the oldest whisky in the world.
The bottle, sourced from rare spirits collector Sukhinder Singh, owner of The Whisky Exchange, was opened this week in the presence of a Notary Public in Warsaw, with spirits experts Charles MacLean and Edward Bates on hand.
Jean-Marie Schaller, founder of Louis Moinet, and Michal Kowalski and Lukasz Baranowski, from Wealth Solutions, were also in attendance.
The Whisky Watch will be launched on 8 April.
