This rare watch is entered to auction with an estimate of £12,000 – £18,000.
Michael Jagiela, Watch Specialist at Fellows Auctioneers, said: “This is one of several extremely rare watches we have up for auction on April 2nd. When Louis Moinet created The Whisky Watch, they combined their Swiss accuracy with the traditions of the Scottish art of distillation. There are many unique features which, when combined together, create a truly exquisite watch. I am 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 rare whisky.”
