S P O T L I G H T O N T H E H I L L Morgans Celebrations are Bar None Author visit and holiday fare Morgan's Jewelers celebrated a new book by Matt Hranek titled, “A Man & His Watch.” The book details the emotional attachment between watches and their owners. The cover features the famous Paul Newman Rolex Daytona, which broke all records when it sold at auction for over $17 million. It was a man’s night of whiskey and watches. On another evening, Morgan’s Jewelers hosted a holiday party with a top shelf bar, hors d’oeuvres from PV Catering and a harpist to set the holiday mood.
