On September 26th, the private watch collectors club CronotempVs celebrated their 6th anniversary at Fortuny Restaurant & Club in Madrid. Amongst the invited guests were CronotempVs Club members, CEO’s & Boutique managers of high end luxury watch brands, independent watchmakers and press. The CronotempVs watch club focusses purely on high end, handmade, luxury wrist watches and all the CronotempVs members have an acquired taste for luxury and perfection. For their 6th anniversary the club invited their guest to an evening with food and drinks that have the same luxury and perfection that they are used to.
Skully Gin was honored to be the Gin of choice for this evening. Although not officially available in Spain yet, a shipment of Skully Gin was sent to Madrid especially for this event so the guests could enjoy a Gin that is made with the same passion and love as the handmade wristwatches that brought the club together.
During the 5 course dinner in the garden of Fortuny restaurant & Club, Skully Gin was served in 3 different flavors, all garnished in a way to express the specific Gin flavor. As is customary in Spain the event ended with a Skully Gin accompanied by a good cigar.
CronotempVs is a private watch collectors/enthusiast/amateurs club mainly operative in Spain. Although it was never planned, the club has had more and more foreign members joining the forum, forcing CronotempVs to become more and more international. Although mainly constituted by Spanish members, there are members from Holland, France, Germany, China, the United States, Taiwan, and Switzerland.
