Geneva Seal & Richard Mille Created an Unforgettable Night

Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, a Chicago fine jewelry and luxury timepiece boutique took over Oak Street last week with our friends from Richard Mille, Lake Forest Sportscars, McLaren Chicago, Louis XIII, and Biggs Cigar Mansion for an unforgettable night.

Our clients enjoyed the luxurious look, style, interior and monstrous power of a McLaren driving experience upon arrival. The McLaren is an exotic among exotics -- it doesn't show up on the streets with regularity. One of our clients described the drive as "a religious experience," he went on to say:

"The supercar isn't merely a product of raw power and the stunning looks: driving a car like this connects you to the machinery and the road in a way that other cars do not.

The McLaren made me feel like I was a quicker, more responsive, and more capable of a driver. Let me be clear, that effect is mostly psychological

— a vehicle with this amount of power delivered to the rear wheels and a top speed north of 200 mph can both humble you and end your life —

but it’s a euphoria that I don’t think you can get from any lesser car."

After the drive, our clients were treated to a rare tasting of Louis XIII Cognac. Each decanter takes four generations of cellar masters over 100 years to craft. David Chhay, our Louis XIII ambassador said:

"It's one century in a glass."

We also showcased the luxury watch brand that has taken watchmaking to a new extreme -- Richard Mille -- while our clients mingled with Anton Rubianto, the Director of Richard Mille USA.

Where other modern-era brands aspire to antiquity, Mille does not pretend to have ancient roots; he did not buy an old name – he uses his own.

Richard Mille breaks all the rules.

Chicago's finest cigar shop, Biggs Cigar Mansion, stopped by & treated our clients to cigars on our Geneva Seal terrace. It was a wonderful night full of life's small luxuries and we couldn't be prouder to treat our clients -- who have turned into family -- to a night they will never forget.
