Laquered and Liquored - Glashütte Gentlemen's Corner

Celebrating the 500th anniversary of the German city of Glashütte, where watches have been made by the eponymous watchmaker Glashütte Original for more than 160 years, a modest means of celebration seemed in order.
The result is the "Gentlemen's Corner," a luxuriously appointed lacquered cabinet that comes complete with five matching, limited edition Glashütte Original timepieces (a Panomatictourbillon, Panomaticchrono, Panomaticvenue, Panomaticreserve and Panomaticlunar, which range in cost from around $5,000 to $100,000 each), five individual watch winders, a humidor with Cohiba Cigars, a DVD player, and a bar with 18 year old Scotch whiskey.
