Armin Strom’s Cognac Watch Contains Drops of Prized 1762 Cognac (Live Pics)

Private ownership allows Swiss watch manufacturer Armin Strom the freedom to explore novel concepts and unusual projects. To commemorate its new partnership with Wealth Solutions in Poland, Armin Strom created a highly unusual wristwatch. The movement of the mechanical timepiece features a small capsule containing a 1762 Gautier Cognac, which was owned by Wealth Solutions.

Armin Strom chief horologist Claude Greisler devised a concept that protects the movement while incorporating the rare spirit. A sealed sapphire crystal disc positioned at 5 o’clock captures the rare Cognac. Manual wind with a five-day power reserve, the watch comes in a stainless steel, 18k rose gold and titanium cases. On the backside, a hand- engraved design of a bunch of grapes decorates the base plate, this is a limited edition to 40 pieces.
