Comment

La Romanée 1865 — a timepiece for history. The Maison de Haute Horlogerie De Bethune, active member of Club 1865 by Baghera / wines, has gladly volunteered to establish a true partnership for the creation of a unique timepiece linking two worlds of exceptional expertise. The DB27 timepiece “ La Romanée 1865 ” is a unique model. A burgundy dial on which a multitude of small white gold pins have been inserted one by one with great delicacy recreating the constellation that overlooked “ La Romanée ” on the day of the grape harvest of 12th September 1865. An exceptional vintage that made history. The year 1865 is also significant for Baghera / wines who chose this date to commemorate Rudyard Kipling’s year of birth and the founding of Beau- Rivage, Geneva. On the back of the watch, you will find a compendium of De Bethune’s technical innovations as well as the inscription “ La Romanée 1865 ”. This exclusive timepiece equipped with the mechanical self-winding calibre comes with a burgundy coloured canvas strap. A visit of the manufacturing facility followed by lunch with Michael Ganne (CEO of Baghera /wines) and Pierre Jacques (CEO of De Bethune) will be offered to the buyer and it will definitely include a few good wines ...
