The lawyer, the pen and the timepiece
Flamboyant barrister Norman Yatooma hosted about 40 people for a private viewing of Montblanc’s new timepiece collection last Thursday in the cushy Bloomfield Hills digs he shares with wife Nicole and their four daughters. Montblanc is known for its ink pens, but on this occasion they were showing off their new line of watches. Guests enjoyed wine, vittles from Capital Grille and the Tigers game on flat screens all over the three-level house, including the home theater. We hear that at least four watches were sold that evening — not bad, considering that they cost anywhere from $5,000 and $40,000. The best part: Proceeds from the evening’s purchases go to Yatooma’s Foundation for the Kids, to benefit children who have lost a parent.
