Whisky Watch

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. Thanks 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.

  1. Whisky Watch

    Whisky Watch was developed as a result of the partnership of a Polish company, Wealth Solutions, with Louis Moinet, a Swiss watch workshop. The former is an expert in building up collections of rare alcoholic beverages, works of art, and watches, while the latter specializes in creating limited editions of timepieces. The effect of this co-operation is a unique watch combining Swiss accuracy with the traditions of the Scottish art of distillation.

  5. Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862

    A drop of alcohol kept in that unique watch is the oldest whisky in the world, Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862. It is a genuine unique beverage which was used in the project by courtesy of Sukhinder Singh, a famous British collector of rare alcoholic beverages and owner of The Whisky Exchange. He decided to sacrifice one of the greatest treasures in his collection because he wanted it to be passed to further generations in a new and rare form – as Whisky Watch.

  6. Age of steam

  7. Age of steam

    When that extraordinary whisky was distilled among Scottish hills, the world was just in the middle of the age of steam, undergoing changes driven by the Industrial Revolution. Factories fully equipped with machinery transformed the faces of individual countries, large steamships crossed the Atlantic Ocean and the railway finally connected remote metropolises. In the United States Confederates clashed with the Union’s army on bloody battlefields and the first train set out on the newly opened Saint Petersburg-Warsaw Railway. Whisky Watch reconnects us to such remote world of 1862.

  10. Ateliers Louis Moinet was founded in Saint-Blaise, Neuchâtel, in 2004. The fully-independent firm was established to honour the memory of Louis Moinet (1768-1853): master watchmaker, inventor of the chronograph in 1816 (certified by Guinness World Records™), and pioneer in the use of very high frequencies (216,000 vibrations per hour). Louis Moinet was a watchmaker, scholar, painter, sculptor, and teacher at the School of Fine Arts – as well as the author of Traité d’Horlogerie, a watchmaking treatise published in 1848 that remained a definitive work of reference for almost a century. Today, Ateliers Louis Moinet is perpetuating this legacy. The firm’s timepieces, produced in limited editions only, have won some of the most coveted honours, including a Red Dot Design Award (Best of the Best category), gold and bronze medals in the Chronometry Competition, a Robb Report “Best of the Best” award, a “Chronograph of the year” distinction from Begin magazine, Japan, and a recent UNESCO Award of Merit. Louis Moinet creations often make use of unusual materials, such as fossils and meteorites, combined with bespoke fine watchmaking complications in a unique creative approach. The brand’s core values are creativity, exclusivity, art and design.
