"Days Of My Youth" movie premiere

Munich, Germany, 08-NOV-2014

On 08-NOV-2014, the German premiere of the Swatch co-sponsored movie Days Of My Youth took place in Munich.  The German Swatch Club had invited collectors to the premiere, including a preceding autograph session with the Swatch Proteam athletes Richard Permin (FRA), Cody Townsend (US), Markus Eder (ITA) and Sam Anthamatten (SUI) who are starring in the movie.

It was also the German launch day of the limited Richard Permin special Irony Chrono Big Permin (YOS402S, 1111 pcs).  40 pcs were available for sale in Munich.

We arrived about 30 mins before the autograph session, so we could see the busy preparations, setting up displays etc.

Everything was set up "just in time", so Dino could check out the tables...

Finally, the time to buy the special had arrived, so the club members had a lot of fun!


At about 10 past 7pm, the four Swatch Proteam members arrived and patiently signed posters, watches and other stuff...

Markus Eder (ITA)

Cody Townsend (US)

Richard Permin (FRA)

Time to sign the 'preordered' watches

At around 8pm, we walked to the nearby cinema Filmtheater Sendlinger Tor where a lot of fans were queuing already.

The cinema Filmtheater Sendlinger Tor is truly a 'classic' cinema with a beautiful decoration.  A great place to watch a fantastic movie.

At 9pm, the four heroes arrived and a short interview with each Proteam member was held.  It was a funny and loose atmosphere, it seems as if they still were enjoying this presentation even at the fourth tour stop (three more to go).

A lucky draw for a Permin special was also held.  We should have chosen one row nearer to the screen when we picked our seats!

Afterwards, the Days Of My Youth movie was shown.  All I can say:  Go out and watch it!  It shows much more than fantastic and exciting skiing.  It is a truly inspirational movie!  You can get a first impression by watching the extended trailer:

Afterwards, the four athletes were available again for autographs, a short talk etc.

A truly enjoyable evening!  Thanks to Britta Engels and the others from Swatch Germany for the smooth organization!  See you at the next event...
