Portraiture and Dinner to celebrate the end of 2012  2 Comments


At the close of 2012, a congenial gathering of 27 collectors at Chef De Table. a restaurant owned by a fellow collector allowed us to spend time catching up with each other, enjoy good food and wine, admire each other's latest horological acquisitions and to participate in my group portraiture.

Dinner and wine was most enjoyable and relaxed. Food and wine went by all too quickly but it gave us more time to pour over the watches all displayed by a small table all night.

The watches brought by guests included some rare pieces including a rectangular TV style IWC and two lesser known brands in steampunk designs. Also making an appearance were two Roger Dubuis and a Patek Gondolo perpetual.

At the end of the meal, half of the group proceeded to enjoy their cigars and whisky al dente. This was where the individual portraits were taken. The individual images photographed and processed in a manner to bring out characteristics not seen in each person through photography.

They were put together in this collage of collectors called "Harry Tan & Friends" and it is interesting to note that in it, there are professors, a professional photographer, forum moderators, realtor, air traffic controller, entrepreneur, restaurateurs, retired hotelier and a leather craftsman. An eclectic mix with horology being the thread that ties them together.

It was a great evening of fine horology and food and of course great conversations.  Now, wondering if there is going to be a another fun collage of HT&F.
