The highlight of the exhibition: All 6 Puff swatches together...
In the afternoon, about 165 participating
club members met at the Hotel Großer
Kurfürst where we stayed during the event.
we all received this nice shirt later
several discussions already going on...
At six o'clock, the head of Swatch The
Club, Patrick Jaron, gave a nice welcome speech with information about
the rest of the day:
We took a nice walk from the hotel,
passing the huge TV tower at Alexanderplatz...
Ads for the Beach Volleyball World Championships are everywhere!
After a walk of about 20 minutes, we
arrived in the Münzstrasse in Berlin-Mitte. Swatch The Club
had a nice surprise for us: An empty shop :-)
In Münzstrasse 18, Swatch will
new swatch store concept (probably called Instant Swatch Store? or Rumble In The Jungle?) on
9-JUL. So the shop was already renovated but the was nothing
interesting inside. Even though, cameras were not allowed that
night for the party. Just for the evening of our party, Swatch
had brought some nice furniture from the film studios in
Babelsberg. One of the sofas was used in the movie Good Bye Lenin!
Here are two pictures from the party at
the (not yet) store:
OK, back to the report of the Berlin
event: I just said: Nothing interesting
inside in the (not yet) store. But on this evening, it was
different. The supernice Gold & Pioneer special was
distributed for us
A golden Nabab
special swatch (YNZ100, stainless
steel) was given to the 165 participating club members. It is the
first golden Nabab swatch, and it is limited to only 170 pcs. It
comes in a very nice acrylic display:
The details of this watch are really very
unique and special: It
has the words GOLD & PIONEER 10th
ANNIVERSARY engraved on the bezel around the face, the words THANK YOU
engraved on the side(!) of the case,
and the date and location (Berlin, Germany) embossed on the leather
strap with the golden clasp:
A perfect watch with many interesting details for a perfect event! Collectors also received a certificate about the watch signed by Nick Hayek sr.
The DJ at the party was really superb
(lots of gems from the 80s! :-) After some food and some more
drinks, a lot of club members were dancing and enjoying
themselves. I managed to sneak in my mobile phone camera, so here
are some impressions from the party:
we even had a polonaise later in the night :-)
On our way back home...
