| December 7, 2012 | Parties

It happens in the fall on our coast: The days shorten, the weather cools, and time ticks ever closer to Traditional Jewelers’ Watch Fair Preview Party. Then the fĂȘte arrives—and this year, it went like this. The well-polished doors were thrown open to welcome its glamorous guests, who were ready—and quite willing—to don some new arm candy. Carla Vargas, Janie Merkle, and Darrin and Denise Flamma browsed brands like IWC Schaffhausen, Chanel and Cartier, and admired the superior craftsmanship of the products. They also took a moment to mix and mingle, sample savories from Anders Catering and raise a toast to their newly purchased timepieces. A portion of those proceeds benefited Orange County United Way, which helps the underserved in our community develop self-sufficient lives for tomorrow.Photography by Reza Allah-Bakhshi
