These events are very dependent on the calendar of everyone who RSVP’d, so I decided to add a degree of difficulty to this one by scheduling it on the same day as the Duke-Carolina game. You would think after 25 years in the area, that would have registered with me for possibly the most hyped college basketball game of the year.


Even with that scheduling snafu, we had a great turnout at Taggart Cars on Thursday evening. The team from ECJ Luxe Collection in Charlotte arrived with a veritable smorgasbord of amazing watches for us to look at, in addition to the great showroom full of cars from Taggart Cars and a few beauties in the parking lot that some of our attendees brought, including a couple of Bentleys.


Food from La Farm bakery and wine from our regulars at The WineFeed rounded out the catering side of things, but with all due respect to them, the stars of the evening were from ECJ Luxe.

Ross Gallin did an amazing job explaining the watches to all that wanted to look, and there were some beautiful ones from Hublot, Blancpain and Audemars Piguet and from a couple of manufacturers I hadn’t discovered yet. Thanks for the great goodie bag too. It was worth coming for that.


Taggart also had some gorgeous cars on display including a matte grey Audi RS7, BMW Z8, BMW M4 (Blacked out) and several Caymans.

We also had a little wander around in the shop and saw what they were working on back there. They have an amazing workshop at Taggart, and there were some really interesting projects going on including a gearbox swap on a Factory Five GTM. That was a very interesting looking thing,

When the game started at 8, we had a couple of folks that stuck around to watch and we are glad we did because Carolina won. (And I have now alienated a portion of the readers :) )

Another great evening. Thank you to everyone that came, faces old and new. To the new faces, let me know if you need any additional information. We would love to have you as a part of the group.

Keep your eyes open for the next event coming up in March/April timeframe.
