On 04-MAR, Swatch Club Germany invited James Bond and Swatch fans and collectors to Frankfurt for a Swatch X 007 Night. We met at 7pm at Kameha Suite in the center of Frankfurt, near the Alte Oper. I was surprised by the huge turnout: About 80 Bond fans and Swatch collectors joined the event from all over Germany.
At the beginning of the event, Swatch Brand Manager Germany Stefan Sommer and the chief editor Philipp Schulze (Cinema magazine) introduced us to James Bond and the history of Q throughout the Bond movies. Afterwards, the 7th Bond special Swatch Q was introduced.
27 Q watches were sold during the evening (out of about 250 pcs allocated for Germany).
During the evening, we were nicely entertained: It was possible to play Roulette and Black Jack (we received a few chips to play). At the end of the evening, several prizes were given away for the persons who had earned the most Roulette / Black Jack chips in the end. The two first prizes were something really unique: Two original autographed sets of poker cards actually used at the set of Casino Royale.
We had great fun at this beautiful location, quite a few drinks and great fingerfood. Britta and the team from Swatch Club Germany had prepared a wonderful event, with lots of attention to the details! Thanks again and hope to see you soon at the end of March again for the launch of the limited club watch 2020.
