    CJ Charles Jewelers and Panerai La Jolla Boutique were proud to be a part of the 10th Annual La Jolla Concours D'Elegance this past weekend.

    Friday Cocktail Party

    The weekend started with a bang at the Contemporary Classic Cocktail party, hosted at La Valencia and co-sponsored by Officine Panerai. Dancers swirled as guests nibbled on delicacies and sipped specialty cocktails. Vahid Moradi, President Panerai La Jolla stated:
    The Panerai La Jolla Boutique was proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the Friday evening welcome event for the La Concours, benefiting The Monarch School and La Jolla Historical Society. The event was just magical and energetic, and it was the perfect way to showcase Panerai's new casually-elegant Radiomir 1940 Collection with other sport watches amidst the backdrop of the contemporary classic and creative themes of the evening.

    La Jolla Concours D'Elegance 2014

    The rest of the weekend was spent hosting guests in the Panerai VIP Hospitality Lounge. The lounge design is inspired by luxury yachts and is a hallmark of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge regattas in New England among 11 classic yacht regattas sponsored around the world. It made it's west-coast debut here in La Jolla at the Concours! A Panerai team-member shared:
    The concept was to connect the world of classic sailing with the world of classic cars and introduce these passionate group of collectors to the world of Officine Panerai. Overall, we feel the wooden boat-like VIP Hospitality Lounge succeeded in expressing this shared passion beautifully. It was such a pleasure for us personally to meet such passionate collectors!
    Watch and car collectors enjoyed the hospitality lounge, Michael Roeder blogging for ThePuristSPro took a number of stunning photographs and provided a great write up of the time he spent at the Concours. When asked about the most memorable sight from the weekend, Vahid Moradi noted:
    Why, the Panerai Hospitality Lounge of course! But if I had to pick a non-Panerai sight I will keep in my mind's eye for a long time it would be the scene of all of this exquisite machines with so much classic history, all lined up around the Concours like beautiful, beloved works of art, perfectly-restored and showcased for our enjoyment.
    CJ Charles Jewelers and Officine Panerai La Jolla look forward to participating in the La Jolla Concours D'Elegance for many years to come.
