Why? We don’t know. But it looks like independent Swiss watchmaker Armin Strom, and its chief horologist Claude Greisler, decided it would be a good idea to convince the owners of the world’s oldest known Cognac bottle, the Cognac Gaultier 1762, to part with 40 drops of its content. Each drop was then carefully inserted in the mechanism of the Cognac Watch. It serves no functional purpose, other than to perhaps impress your rich friends, kind of like Romain Jerome’s Moon watch. We don’t know how much each of the 40 pieces cost, but all have been sold in an exclusive resale event prior to the official launch at Baselworld on March 20, 2016.
