A rare Armin Strom wristwatch, which contains 55 year-old Japanese whisky, is due to go under the hammer at a Fellows auction.
The limited edition Armin Strom gentleman’s PVD-treated stainless steel piece is one of ten timepieces ever made and is estimated to go for between £5,000 and £8,000 at Fellows’ upcoming watch sale on November 27.
The 1963 Karuizawa whisky capsule has been placed at exactly five o’clock on the dial, a theme which has been common at Fellows Auctions this year.
Michael Jagiela, watch specialist at the auctioneers, said: “We have seen great success with the two rare ‘Rum’ few watches we have sold this year so it’s great to offer up for auction a watch containing this unusual whisky. It’s also brilliant for our final Watch Sale of 2018 to include limited and interesting watches such as this.”
He added: “This particular Japanese whisky is incredibly rare which will entice bidders and we are sure the item will be very popular with watch and whisky enthusiasts alike. It is a brilliant opportunity for a collector to own some of this scarce whisky.”
In October this year, WatchPro reported on the Fellows sale of a watch containing the world’s oldest rum.
