A Dinner Among Friends, Part 1: The Aperitivo
Serious watch collectors often like to share their non-horological passions with like-minded people. That, after all, is what The Lounge by Watchonista is all about. So, join us as we delve into the other interests of people better known for their love of watches. Take a sip of this first instalment of The Lounge by Watchonista’s new four-part video series.
The Guest List
For “The Aperitivo,” we speak to independent watch critic & collector, Carson Chan. As knowledgeable as he is talented, Carson can disassemble and reassemble an engine as quickly and as easily as he can mix the perfect cocktail.
That said, you can’t love Porsche and be a Ferrarista concurrently. Sure, Porsche lovers can like the occasional Ferrari model, but, in the end, they will always return to Porsche because the inner passions that rule enthusiasts are often hard to articulate, let alone alter. And unsurprisingly, the two iconic cocktails offered before our dinner – a martini and a negroni – evoked similarly strong responses.
