Panelists:

Phillip Toledano, Artist and Host, The Viva Bastardo Show
Toledano is a former ad agency executive turned commercial artist who is known for his contrarianism and collecting the most interesting and fascinating examples of both cars and watches. From his rally period (a former Lancia 037, Stratos and Delta S4 owner) to his current obsessions with 1970s Patek Philippe watches, he is a collector who always seems to be ahead of the curve. He also happens to host “The Viva Bastardo Show,” which is part of the Hagerty Podcast Network.

Abelson is the founder of Graal, a vintage/luxury watch service that helps clients buy and sell their watch “grails.” One of the few women working within the space, Abelson has previously spent extensive time in Hong Kong during her time working at WatchBox and is one of the premiere dealers within the vintage and pre-owned arena.

A well-traveled writer who has previously done extensive time in southeast Asia for both CNN Travel and the BBC, Pennington is also an avid car enthusiast and has a reputation for appreciating the close-knit relationships between both cars and watches, to the point where Hodinkee founder and CEO, Ben Clymer, has described him as a “total car nut.”
