Especially when we are overwhelmed with work, when something significant changes in our life, or when we simply leave our usual surroundings to a new place, this is when we notice our most valuable asset: time.
In Friedrichshain you have time to get lost, as well as time to find something you didn’t know you were looking for. It is a place for nostalgia, for living in the moment, but also for seeking the future. It is an unfinished place, where one of time’s most significant effects becomes very obvious: change.
You definitely notice that unfinished character just by walking down Warschauer Straße, seeing all the construction works, graffiti and improvised shops and galleries. It’s always in progress, always changing. But this is what makes it special, what makes all of Berlin special.
The new label Lilienthal Berlin wants to capture exactly this spirit with their brand new watch, representing the individualistic and unique character of the city that is always in between a state of tranquility and movement. The iconic design symbolizes both the diverse history, but also its colorful present and future with subliminal details and aesthetic quotes of the city. With the exchangeable leather wristbands and color options of the body and face, it is adaptable to its wearer as the city itself.
To celebrate the launch of today’s exclusive pre-sale of their first model – the Lilienthal Berlin L1, which comes in a limited edition of 1440, all designed in Berlin and manufactured in Germany – the label sent us on a 24h tour to explore our favorite places in Berlin. We took the watch with us on our way through Friedrichshain, always with the time on our side. Enjoy our highlights after the jump!
Last Friday night the G-Sessions Pop Up Store in Torstrasse 66 hosted an exclusive tech night to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the watch brand G-SHOCK and the launch of their latest innovative model with Bluetooth functionality. Immersed in a cosy atmosphere special guest Sascha Kösch, founder of De:Bug and tech-expert, presented the impressive features of the new watch edition such as phone finder or incoming call alert and offered background information about the Bluetooth technology and its recent evolutions. To complete the talk Royal Air Force pilot Nathan Jones entertained the audience with his personal experiences by explaining the utility of the G-SHOCK watches in his adventurous job. Highlight of the night was with no doubts the Tech-Bingo with amazing watches as prizes, which created a good dose of excitement and competition in the audience, till the very last “BINGO!” shout! The night was definitely a success, and I’m looking forward to their next invention! All the impressions of the event after the jump.
