The Regal Belles of ROLEX Bal Harbour

Updated: Dec 22, 2019

Life's about authentic experiences that will help you determine the character of a person, place or brand.

The experience I received at Bal Harbour's Rolex by Tourneau has been one of class in the highest form. From the incredible crowd to the sophisticated ambience, this upscale event and the brand's representative was truly awe-inspiring, to say the least.

Within Bal Harbour’s shops lies Rolex, a world-renowned watch company that harbors much more than, timeless pieces. Encased behind the crystal lens are sophistication, beauty, grace, and a breathtaking experience that everyone should have the opportunity to partake in at least once in their life.

(That’s just what these ladies gave me.)

While visiting this location, Monica Otero (pictured to the right) invited me to a private Rolex event they were hosting later that week. I politely accepted her invitation and prepared to attend.

“ROLEX is recognized as one of the world's most powerful brands. Their design and in-house production of all of the essential components of their watches from the casting of gold alloys to the assembly and final finishes of the watches’ movement is simply remarkable.”

Upon my arrival, I was dazzled with the event's sheer elegance. The private soiree had the perfect setting. The people were beautiful, the greeters were personable & the drinks were exquisite.

After walking into the ROLEX space, I was immediately greeted by Monica (the associate who extended the invitation), who gave me the warmest heartfelt welcome, as she guided me around towards the luxurious offerings. We chatted over hors d'ourves & champagne before she gracefully placed several of their breathtaking timepieces on my wrist.

I must be honest with you all, while trying on the different styles Rolex offers, for women.

I felt as if I were Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, sitting in a chic 5th Avenue Restaurant on the upper east side of New York City, finishing up a rich cup of cappuccino and a tasty bruschetta as I prepared to hail a cab to head home to my Penthouse Suite in Manhattan, that overlooks Central Park. I also felt as if I were Diana Ross in Mahogany, getting ready to make my big debut and strut my stuff on the elite fashion runways of Paris & Milan before a crowd of my industry peers.

Monica, made me feel comfortable and catered to. At that moment, I knew this is where I belonged and needed to be. I felt as if there was a divine light that whispered within my being and said, "This is who you are Gaby; regal, powerful & timeless like ROLEX."

The ambience of the evening's festivities was one that melted the feelings of pure bliss and grace into my pores and rushed them through my veins.

It felt like the event was structured with the guests’ experience in mind above all else. Before bidding my farewell for the evening, I was pleasantly surprised to have been given a sweet delightful treat, as a parting gift. I must truly say, the ladies at the Rolex by Tourneau in the Shops of Bal Harbour are a real class act... Especially Monica Otero.

Experience the luxurious care that I've had the pleasure of receiving and stop by the shops at Bal Harbour and say hi to the Regal Belles of Rolex by Tourneau. Be sure to ask for Monica, the dahlin Belle, that's most regal of them all.
