This time, the expert in rare works of art and alcohol has teamed up with a Swiss independent manufacturer, Mido Replica, to create an exclusive timepiece with a drop of the oldest whisky in the world, Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862, inside. The watch was presented on April 8, at the Singapore Yacht Show 2017.
