Zenith’s DNA is rooted in the classic automobile and the brand likes to celebrate this. From sponsoring events educating customers on how to buy a classic car, to sponsoring their own El Primero Stratos Spindrift racing team, Zenith takes its auto-related heritage seriously. They even have a carbon fiber El Primero: Stratos Spindrift racing watch that drew a lot of attention at the party.

To honor the brands automotive history, Haute Living partnered with Lou La Vie founder John Temerian to curate a special collection of cars for the evening’s event that included a pristine vintage Jaguar XKE and Porsche 911.

After enjoying several libations, guests sat down at a beautifully dressed, long dramatic table with four courses by Miami Beach’s Casa Tua and rosé by Bertaud Belieu.

After dessert was served, and to cap off the evening, a Hennessy ambassador was on hand to offer up a tasting of Hennessy Paradis Extra Rare Cognac at the end of the meal. The taste was a special treat as Hennessy Paradis uses over 100 eaux-de-vie that are aged for between 25 and 100 years to get just the right flavor, pursuing excellence much like Zenith.
