An Evening with Lebois & Co

What’s better than a well-earned drink at the end of the day? Sipping on said drink while surrounded by fine watches, of course. If, like us, that’s your perfect evening then Lebois & Co has you covered, with their exclusive “An Evening With Lebois & Co” event taking place at The Artillery Arms in the City of London on the 13th of February.

Of course, you need to want to get hands-on with Lebois & Co to make an evening with them worthwhile, but that shouldn’t be a problem. Their vintage-inspired tool watches are as handsome as they are well-made and one of the few horological success stories to come from Kickstarter and actually stick around.

If you want to know a bit more about the history of the brand and its resurgence under now CEO Tom Van Wijlick, check out our In Focus article here. Suffice it to say however, they are well-worth trying on – and An Evening With Lebois & Co will be your first chance to do so with their latest timepiece, the undeniably handsome Venturist.

Alongside the new incarnations of Lebois & Co, you’ll also be able handle some of the rare vintage, pre-quartz crisis watches, the ones that first inspired Wijlick to revive the brand. Who knows, maybe they’ll have the same effect on you?

Watches aside, this is also an opportunity to talk to the people behind the brand. If you have any questions about the history of Lebois, the mechanics behind the watches or the designs, let rip, hold nothing back. Have some feedback or ideas of your own? Go for it.
