Haute Living CEO Kamal Hotchandani and Zenith CEO Aldo Magada hosted a private dinner for the Swiss watch brand at luxury rental shop Lou La Vie. The event was the first of a series of collector dinners with Haute Time and Zenith, which is sold in Miami at King Jewelers.
Guests sipped on Ruinart Champagne at the reception, during which guests had the chance to meet Magada and tennis star Martina Navratilova, and Zenith brand director Cédric Laroche who were both in attendance.
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.
