Luxury watchmaker Dubey & Schaldenbrand celebrated the ‘Age of Elegance’ at the 21st Annual Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance at Trump National Golf Club, which showcased some of the world’s most luxurious classic automobiles.
Alongside local retailer partner, Medawar Fine Jewelers, Dubey & Schaldenbrand welcomed more the 4,000 guests to the event. Set on the rolling greens of the golf club in a luxury tent, the timepiece display included the new collection from the brand, and special one-of-a-kind pieces brought over from Switzerland uniquely for the event.
Dubey & Schaldenbrand donated a beautiful vintage edition Georges Dubey timepiece valued at over $10,000 to raise money for the Palos Verdes Art Center and Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Foundation charities. The lucky winner, Sven Senger, was absolutely delighted to win the timepiece, which was presented to him by Jonatan Gil of Dubey & Schaldenbrand, along with Robert Medawar from Medawar Fine Jewelers.
Jonatan Gil, CEO of Dubey & Schaldenbrand, flew out from Switzerland to attend the event, and commented: “It’s an honor to have attended the beautiful Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance. I am very proud to present the new line of Dubey & Schaldenbrand to aficionados and passionate collectors of mechanical timepieces and automobiles.”
More than 200 cars were exhibited on the golf course, including classic models from Aston Martin, Mercedes, Duesenberg, Avanti, Rolls Royce, and several restored fire trucks dating back as far as 1902. Considered one of the premiere car shows on the west coast, the Concours attracts the top exhibitors in their class from all over the western United States.
Maurice Daaboul, President of Dubey & Schaldenbrand Americas, commented: “Robert Medawar and his family of Medawar Fine Jewelers are integral to the Palos Verdes community and we are proud to have partnered with them during this great event for such a wonderful cause.”
