The Whisky Watch
The new watch by Louis Moinet has something very original to offer that goes beyond complications. In the dial of this limited edition there is an encapsulated drop of the World’s oldest whisky –Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862. The creation of the so called Whisky Watch was possible thanks to the cooperation between Wealth Solutions and Louis Moinet. Wealth Solutions is an expert in building up collections of rare alcoholic beverages, works of art, and watches. The world premiere of this rarity took place during The Singapore Yacht Show 2017.
Two worlds defining luxury merge in this piece: horology and fine spirits. The Whisky Watch was produced in original Louis Moinet stainless steel and 18k rose gold cases. This timepiece is powered by the LM45 automatic movement, designed and manufactured also by Louis Moinet. The frequency of the balance is 28,800 vph (4Hz) and the movement contains 22 jewels. The Watch has a 3-level dial with applied open-work hour-markers, seconds at 9 o’clock and an exclusive whisky capsule at 3 o’clock.
The genuine, unique spirit used in this project was courtesy of Sukhinder Singh, a famous British collector of rare alcoholic beverages and owner of The Whisky Exchange. The bottle of Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862 was opened specially for this purpose on 14th March in Warsaw, Poland. The bottle-opening ceremony was attended by Charles MacLean, a whisky expert, writer and Master of the Quaich; and Edward Bates, a spirits expert and Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac educator.
Only 50 watches (10 in gold cases and 40 in steel cases) are available for sale. The International subscription for this unique timepiece was opened on the website: www.en.wealth.pl/our-projects/whisky-watch-2/
