X Damien Hirst Launch Interlaken
On 18-NOV-2018 (Mickey's 90th birthday),
the now much sought after special Gent Spot
Mickey (GZ323S) was sold online for 24 hours only with
many collectors (and resellers) from all around the world clicking for
hours trying to secure one of the 1999 specials.
Additionally, this watch was also
available in very limited numbers in several Swatch stores around the
world: Interlaken, Paris, and more.
Christine Tanner sent me the following
report & photos from Interlaken:
Club Switzerland invited Swiss members to the presentation of the
Mickey collection. The presentation was held in the Swatch store
Interlaken. Before 9am, we had to queue outside the
store. It was cold, but coffee and croissants have been

Villard from Marché Suisse had some surprises for us: Ten Mickey
Spot Maxi were organized the night before by the store
manager. So, there will be luck draw for the Maxis. At 10am,
the store was letting us in to register for the right to buy a Spot
Mickey (GZ323S). 30 pieces were available for
sale. A few tourists from Asia also joined the registration
spontaneously while they were browsing through the Swatch store.
11am, 10 happy owners for the 10 Maxi Spot Mickey (MGZ323) were
this time we had nice food and coffee and talking to friends and
Sidonie and Daniel from Swatch Club. Everybody turned home happy
with their Spot Mickey watches. Thanks to Swatch Club and Marché
Suisse for this surprising event.
Rodolphe was in Paris and there were
about six collectors queuing at the Champs-Elysées Megastore one hour
If you also have photos or videos from a
Mickey "offline" event on 18-NOV, please send it to me.
