I've often driven extremely impressive road cars. BUT, I've never driven a true race car. That was an experience. Brakes were cold when I got the car, tires were cold, I could tell. Brake pedal also had very little travel. An incredible and memorable experience!

Looks like a great event. Cars and Watches good mix. Will dig back in the p[post and look at the watches. Thanks for covering the event. Bill

I was the most boring and conservative person there!

Everyone in attendance was "filled with personality" and almost all were well versed in watches. One of the guests, a lady, who owns over a dozen watches (among many other things) actually described a Patek Philippe as "boring" and "you see them everywher... 

It was a very cool experience. And the guests thought so too!

What do you get for the person who has everything? An experience worth remembering!

I spy a couple of lovely ladies at that shindig but

I can't read the time on any of those watches. I kinda like the case and crown design, but those skeleton dials and hands are too hipster for me I guess.

It's better in person...

It's really bad to see the time in the photos; it's a bit better in person. The case and crown design is actually very pleasing. I really like Riddler's new Roger Dubuis in gold. It's a very nice design. Beautiful people, beautiful cars, and very nice wat...

Roger dubuis is a brand I am watching closely. Hope to own one some day. I think it is growing on me a lot. Just waiting for a slightly more entry level sports series from them. Ps: on a side note, just wondering why this is under Horological meandering n... 

Thank you for reading! And responding!

That's a good question; this post really does belong in the RD forum. It also belongs in a way to the Automotive forum too since cars are mentioned. I will transition it to the Roger Dubuis forum!

the quest for a new RD DNA takes time.

and the history of watch/automotive brand partnership has been littered with failures, thus the natural skepticism of collectors. I actually quite like the new RDs, though the old Sympathies have a place in heart. Being a Lamboghini owner, to be frank, th... 

Something new is coming...

 
 By: patrick_y : November 23rd, 2018-09:50
It's coming soon! It will cost less. And it will be automatic, not manual wind.

I saw a post about the huracan on Roger dubuis Instagram

 
 By: traineract : December 4th, 2018-00:58
Is that the new one you were referring to?

Very good!

 
 By: patrick_y : December 6th, 2018-22:39
Yes, that was the new one.

RD color scheme

The black, blue and orange work well together. Definitely for those that want a bit more spice than an AP or Patek.

Stupendous pics!!!

Thanks so much for sharing! That Gehry building is out of this world and that final Lambo/ RD wrist shot blew me away. Me wants one ASAP (watch not car)

My pleasure! Thanks for commenting!

The watches are definitely cool. It's really an excellent combination of new-age technology and traditional craftsmanship. Think this; carbon fiber bridges, but with a Geneva Seal. That's pretty special.
