NOBLEMAN teamed up with the Newport Beach International Boat Show as its official magazine partner. The 4-day event was a one-of-a-kind experience with on-land and on-water areas to explore, featuring some of the most luxurious yachts in the world. Thursday night we kicked off the weekend on the Nobu patio with friends and family of NOBLEMAN. Custom cocktails and small bites were passed around while guests took photos on the red carpet, got an up-close look at unique Ferraris and Aston Martins, and danced to the amazing DJ.
The 3-day celebration continued with our very own NOBLEMAN VIP lounge, an exclusive setting for VIP guests to step away from the show and enjoy different activations. We were joined by CaskX, the first investment firm for whiskey barrels. Guests had the opportunity to taste the same distillate from three different ages, observing how they’ve developed over various years. While enjoying custom cocktails from Tequila Komos and wine from The Setting Wines, guests relaxed on Tidelli’s beautiful hand-made furniture, tried on exclusive new watches from Panerai, and listened to live music.
A big hit of the Panerai activation was the brand new Radiomir collection. With pieces starting at $6,000, this collection boasts a fresh design with a smaller 40mm cushion-shaped case, which is a departure from the larger sizes typically seen in most Panerai models. The collection pays homage to the brand’s military heritage with its minimalist and straightforward dials that are easy to read at a glance. With a range of case materials, complications, and colorways, the collection offers something for everyone who values timeless elegance and modern functionality in their watches.
Over at the on-water experience, Happy Jewelers showcased their most beautiful pieces paired next to impressive yachts for attendees to admire. With the unique chance to board multimillion-dollar yachts and experience the Newport Beach culture, this was a 4-day event like no other. We drank, we laughed, and we enjoyed the beautiful weekend in Newport Beach celebrating the unforgettable boat show.
