For whisky and watch enthusiasts, Wealth Solutions and Louis Moinet paired up for a perfect new product. The Whisky Watch from Louis Moinet houses a single drop of Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862 — thought to be the oldest in the world!
The bottle of Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862 was opened on March 14, 2017, in Warsaw. The Whisky Watch is actually Wealth Solutions’ third Spirit Watch, where they combine collectible timepieces with unique spirits. The Whisky Watch joins the Cognac Watch and the Rum Watch.
Independent Swiss watchmaking brand, Louis Moinet was founded in 2004 in Saint-Blaise, Neuchâtel to honor master watchmaker and the inventor of the chronograph, Louis Moinet (1768-1853). The luxury watch brand is best known for creating limited edition unique timepieces using unusual materials. During its short history, the company has already won a number of coveted awards and accolades and amassed a loyal client base.
The Whisky Watch is part of Louis Moinet’s Metropolis collection, which features three distinct openwork elements to give the face of the timepiece a three-dimensional look. On the dial of the 43 mm sized Whisky Watch, we clearly see the capsule of whisky sitting at 3 o’clock. On the opposite side of the dial, at 9 o’clock, lies a small seconds lacquered subdial.
Powered by the in-house LM45 Caliber, an automatic movement that operates at 28,800 beats per hour (4 Hz), the Whisky Watch offers 48 hours of power reserve.
The Whisky Watch made its official debut at the Singapore Yacht Show in April earlier this year. Available in very limited numbers, there are only ten pieces of the 18k rose gold version and 40 pieces of the stainless steel version. Priced at approximately $44,000 and $18,000 respectively, these pieces will inevitably sell out like the preceding Spirit Watches by Wealth Solutions.
