The DB27 La Romanée 1865 by De Bethune watch, with an enticing estimate of CHF 40,000 to 60,000, is part of the Baghera/wines La Romanée Memories auction that takes place in Geneva on April 18.

DB27 La Romanée 1865 by De Bethune is a unique timepiece whose burgundy dial has a map of the night sky on September 12th 1865, the first day of harvest for a revered vintage that gives its name to the 1865 Club of connoisseurs at Baghera/wines.
De Bethune, an active member of the 1865 Club, has inserted small white gold pins into the dial to represent stars on the night of le vendange.
The winning bidder for the watch will also be given a visit to the Manufacture De Bethune, followed by a lunch with Michael Ganne, CEO Baghera /wines and Pierre Jacques, CEO De Bethune, as well as a tasting of some excellent vintages.
