JUNE 2013 - Real summer usually arrives late in Vancouver, just as school ends and we are all ready to take a much-deserved break. But it's funny how the first evening you spend outside on a patio or a pool deck, enjoying one of this city's many worldfamous views, can make you forget months of chilly rain.

Mail. “The amount of listing inventory has begun to decrease, so it’s not a marketplace where you have a lot of time to make decisions anymore. The sellers and the buyers are working together to get homes to sell. You need to be prepared and ready to buy at close to the list price, if the property is priced well.”

As we head into summer, Greater Vancouver's real estate market is perking up as well. The area's housing sales volume rose by one per cent in May, an early sign that the region's property market is moving up. The number of resale properties that changed hands on the MLS was 2,882, up from 2,852 in May 2012, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. The pace of transactions, and benchmark prices, have slowly picked up since February. “Based on the statistics, we’re definitely seeing a trend into a balanced market,” Sandra Wyant, REBGV president told The Globe and

OYSTER PERPETUAL GMT-MASTER II When Pan American World Airways made its first non-stop intercontinental flight between New York and Moscow in 1959, the watch used by the crew for navigation was a Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-MASTER chronometer. The GMT-MASTER, which provided a perfectly legible reading of the time in two different time zones simultaneously, would become the official watch of Pan Am, one of the most emblematic airlines of the Golden Age of civil aviation. And it would be recognized by pilots as an essential tool in the cockpit. At BASELWORLD 2013, Rolex is introducing a new version of the Oyster Perpetual GMT-MASTER II in 904L steel, with a rotatable bezel featuring for the first time a two-colour ceramic CERACHROM bezel insert in blue and black representing day and night.

CALIBRE 3186, A SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER The GMT-MASTER II is equipped with calibre 3186, a selfwinding mechanical movement with a date display and a second time zone entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex PERPETUAL movements, the 3186 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for highprecision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its design and quality manufacture provide peerless precision and reliability. The oscillator, the true heart of the watch, has a blue PARACHROM hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive alloy. Insensitive to magnetic fields, the PARACHROM hairspring offers great stability when exposed to temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise in case of shocks than a traditional hairspring.

EXCLUSIVE TWO-COLOUR CERACHROM BEZEL A technological and aesthetic feat, the new CERACHROM bezel insert is obtained by a unique process developed and patented by Rolex which allows this ceramic component with two distinct colours to be produced as a single piece. It echoes the traditional two-colour bezel of the original GMT-MASTER and GMTMASTER II models. The CERACHROM insert, introduced in 2005, has the advantage of being virtually scratchproof, highly corrosion resistant, and its colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays. Its diamond-polished surface presents an exceptional lustre. The engraved 24-hour graduations are coated with a thin layer of platinum via a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process. THE OYSTER CASE, SYMBOL OF WATERPROOFNESS AND ROBUSTNESS The GMT-MASTER II’s 40 mm OYSTER case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness, proportion and elegance. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosionresistant 904L steel. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex watchmakers. The winding crown, fitted with the patented TRIPLOCK triple waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. It is protected by a crown guard that forms an integral part of the middle case. The crystal, with a CYCLOPS lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof OYSTER case provides optimal protection for the GMT-MASTER II’s high-precision movement.

Chiming Into the Future – Combining Design and Mechanical Innovation Futuristic in design, stealth in performance is the new Sonata. Inspired by the aerodynamic aesthetic of superyachts, the Sonata reveals a strong and streamlined case with two available dial versions for a 2012 introduction that is powerfully masculine. The case, exquisitely fashioned from titanium, presents one option paired with ceramic – a material unmatched in durability – and gold, and the other with 18-karat rose gold. The essence of ocean navigation is emulated in the design of the Sonata’s two dial versions. The modern appearance of the sleek case structure is reinforced by the strong geometrical detailing on both dial executions. Accompanying the Sonata’s distinctive design traits is its exacting performance. A mechanical instrument, the Sonata is run by a patented self-winding manufacture caliber – a caliber developed in house over the course of seven years by Ulysse Nardin visionaries, engineers and technicians that presents unprecedented precision and multiple functions. Available at Lugaro - Park Royal South The movement combines a 22-karat-gold rotor with a silicium anchor escapement. Both the anchor and escapement wheel are manufactured from silicium – a groundbreaking development. Further contributing to the Sonata’s precision is the silicium hairspring and the acclaimed UN inertial balance wheel – additional changemaking industry innovations brought to fruition by Ulysse Nardin. Revolutionary in its exploration and application of breakthrough materials, Ulysse Nardin produces all of the silicium components for its timepieces through Sigatec, a member of Ulysse Nardin’s group of companies. Each Sonata timepiece is complemented by a black Barenia leather or a black rubber strap with folding buckle, enhancing the Sonata’s refined and resilient elegance. The 2012 Sonata, with its aerodynamic, futuristic design and characteristic Ulysse Nardin inventiveness, is the perfect piece for the man who considers exceptional design and performance a way of life.
