Part Proust, Part Vogue's 73 Questions, and Part Colbert Questionnaire, Elias Marte answers The Daily Grail Questionnaire.
What’s your favorite time of day?
Morning! Love waking up early getting the day started. The day lasts longer for me the earlier I wake up.
Last meal: where, what, and with who?
At Hawksmoor NYC with the boys! Oysters, steak tartare, roasted bone marrow, rib eye steak and fries.
What is your greatest extravagance?
I bought 11 watches last year.
Song on repeat?
Love Me Baby by Angela Charles & Wind Song
What is your most treasured possession?
A ring that my mom gave me when I was a kid. Along with pottery she made when she was a teen. Family photos! Photographs open doors into the past, they’re the pause button of life.
My sense of humor.
What’s one thing people don’t know about you?
I’m very low maintenance. The simplest things make me happy. Me making a person laugh is a huge satisfaction.
Best action movie?
I’m terrible with movies. I’ll say Blaxploitation movies.
The square model of the Piaget Polo and a Cartier Calandre, which I will pick up this year or next. I keep my dream watch list realistic.
What is your motto?
Treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO. Be nice to others!
My mom mainly. Besides that it’s street figures from the 80s/90s NYC underworld.
What do you want to be remembered for?
For being a good family man, good friend and going after what I desired.
