In what is fast becoming a yearly tradition, this past week, our team co-hosted a warm holiday cocktail at legendary Greenwich, CT, retailer Manfredi Jewels. Manfredi is no stranger to most HODINKEE readers, as it remains one of the great independent retailers in the United States, carrying the likes of Audemars Piguet, Omega, Zenith, Ulysse Nardin, Breguet, and Vacheron Constantin, but also independents like Richard Mille, Laurent Ferrier, Ressence, and even Kari Voutilainen. So, to say that our guests had a lot to look at would be something of an understatement.
Many of the brands represented by Manfredi also ensured that they had their best pieces available to see – so consider the finest perpetual Breguet tourbilons as well as a truly transformative Montblanc Villeret.
Fifty of our NYC-based readers were chauffeured to Greenwich thanks to our friends at Cadillac, while many locals took the chance to meet with two of our senior editorial team members – Ben Clymer and Louis Westphalen.
This night with Manfredi capped off an amazing year of HODINKEE-hosted events, and we could not think of a better partner with which to celebrate the holidays. We'll be back next year with plenty more, and if you'd like to be included on these future events be sure to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little about yourself.
