Chopard Alpine Eagle Cocktail and Preview
Janet and I recently attended the Chopard Alpine Eagle cocktail at the Chopard boutique in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. The new Alpine Eagle sports chic timepiece collection is a contemporary, refined and assertive, state-of-the-art reinterpretation of the St. Moritz, the first watch created in 1980 by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, now co-president of Chopard. Imagined and personally designed by him, Alpine Eagle is driven by his passion for the Alps and by the lofty power of the eagle that reigns supreme there.
Crafted from an exclusive, ultra-resistant and light-reflecting metal named Lucent Steel A223, it beats to the rhythm of a Chopard chronometer-certified movement. Bearing testament to Chopard’s ethical approach, Alpine Eagle gives the Maison an opportunity to reveal its new commitment to protecting the Alpine environment through the launch of the Eagle Wings Foundation – of which Karl-Friedrich Scheufele is founding member.
Alpine Eagle is dedicated to contemporary eagles, the aspiring men who outperform in their daily lives and whose vision inspires and elevates. With foresight and determination, they act on the challenges of tomorrow and are innately aware of the importance of environmental issues.

Oris x Balvenie Whisky Tasting
We recently attended the Oris x Balvenie whisky tasting in conjunction with Kingsleeve’s anniversary at APW in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The session began with an introduction to the world of Oris as well as their latest timepiece.
This was followed by a whisky tasting led by James Cordiner, the Balvenie’s Southeast Asia brand ambassador. The Balvenie is owned by William Grant & Sons, which also owns notable brands like Glenfiddich, Monkey Shoulder, and Hendrick’s gin (and many more!).
The Balvenie is a range of single malt whiskies crafted by Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE. The Balvenie is unique among single malts, with their whisky-making process dedicated to maintaining the Five Rare Crafts. As such, they are the only distillery in Scotland that still grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both a coppersmith and a team of coopers on site.
