Watch Winners

    Swiss watchmaker Corum, the official timepiece supplier for the World Series of Poker (WSOP), is offering players the opportunity to custom order hand-painted dials featuring their winning hand. The first such design was created for the 2005 Main Event champion, Aussie Joe Hachem, showing his winning hand: a seven of clubs and three of spades. “We are offering the past and future champions of the WSOP a chance to commemorate their winning moment in poker history with a unique timepiece specially created and designed for them by our master artisans,” says Michael Wunderman, Corum president. Priced from $25,000 to $40,000, the dials will be set in a classical round 42mm gold case, with or without diamonds, and will take about six months to create (949.788.6200, www.corum.ch).
