The Bugai Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is the roadster version of the Veyron 16.4. The name “Grand Sport” recalls two of the most beautiful models in the Bugai brand’s history: the Type 40 and Type 43 from the late 20s and early 30s, which were the first models to be given the moniker “Grand Sport” by Eore and Jean Bugai. These roadsters were the ultimate sports cars of their day.

| 68 |

The Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport combines the pioneering performance specs of the Veyron coupé with the alluring form of a roadster – and

takes the experience of open-top driving in a supercar into a new dimension. In addition, the transparent roof allows drivers to directly experience their surroundings, even when the roof is up. Whether you are cruising elegantly or pushing the car to the limits of its power, with speeds of up to 360 km/h with the roof down and 407 km/h with the roof up, you are guaranteed an absolutely thrilling driver experience and a powerful adrenaline rush.



The Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport celebrated its world premiere in summer 2006 in Pebble Beach, California, where the first model was auctioned for over three million US dollars.

Consequently, the design of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport embodies a timeless excellence that makes it a worthy successor to Eore Bugai’s Grand Sport models from the late 1920s.

Bugai wanted to design a roadster that redefined the technical limits of automotive engineering while also appealing to connoisseurs of aesthetic design and lovers of unique cars. The designers combined their creative finesse with the technical expertise of the engineers to achieve a perfect balance of luxurious elegance and superlative technical performance.

The Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is completely sold out. LUXURY REDEFINED

Quilted napa leather The Grand Sport only uses top-quality napa leather that has been carefully processed so as to retain its natural breathability. Based on historic models, the leather seat covers have been quilted using a method that has been reinterpreted for use in a modern car. The paern symbolises an acceleration curve.

| 70 |

The moisture-repellent leather allows the Grand Sport to meet the very highest of expectations for an open-top sports car. The result is a minimalist aesthetic – form and function in perfect harmony.

MonocoQue The unique structure of the Bugai Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport made it especially challenging to design the removable roof module for the new version. The passenger compartment, designed as a monocoque, perfectly combines high rigidity and extremely low weight. It is the central element of the vehicle structure. Removing the roof takes away an integral component of this structure, meaning the load path had to be redefined in order to retain the high rigidity and crash safety, including side impact and rollover protection. Consequently, the monocoque was reinforced along the sills and transmission tunnel.


air scoops A characteristic feature of the Grand Sport are the two air scoops on the le and right of the bonnet (which are redesigned for the Vitesse). These air scoops serve two functions in the roadster: firstly, they provide air intake for the engine and secondly, they are an elegantly integrated component of the rollover protection system.

Just like the Super Sport, the Vitesse uses a fullcarbon monocoque which enables an extremely high torsional rigidity of 22,000 Nm per degree with maximum passive safety. The exterior is also made completely of carbon fibre. www.buga LUXURY REDEFINED

The interior design embodies maximum emotion and sensual purity. Radically low, sporty proportions create a unique sense of spaciousness. Clearly drawn components and their authentic materials underscore the dynamic character and create instant excitement: Anyone opening the door discovers an exciting interplay between the deep, sloping dashboard and a dominant, arched high center console, a design which evokes emotions and impresses with its perfection.

The already outstanding performance of the Mercedes-AMG GT is boosted still further in the Mercedes-AMG GT S. The AMG 4.0-Liter V8 Biturbo engine with 375 kW (510 hp) and 650 Nm delivers a further 35 kW (48 hp) of output and additional 50 Nm of torque. The AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension is adjustable in three stages – from comfortable through to sportily taut. Further highlights include the electronic AMG rear axle differential lock with variable locking effect and the additional "RACE" transmission mode, which configures the vehicle systems to make them suitable for circuit racing.


The combination of aluminum spaceframe, V8 biturbo engine with dry sump lubrication, sevenspeed dual clutch transmission in transaxle configuration at the rear axle, locking differential, sports suspension with aluminum doublewishbone suspension and the low kerb weight of 1570 kilograms delivers racetrack performance. The concept with front mid-engine and transmission in transaxle configuration makes for a beneficial weight distribution of 47 to 53 percent between the front and rear axle. In conjunction with the vehicle's low center of gravity this translates into extremely agile handling and permits high cornering speeds.

With a favorable power-to-weight ratio of 3.0 kilograms per hp, the Mercedes-AMG GT S selfconfidently lines up alongside the very best in its segment. The sports car also sets a new benchmark figure for fuel economy: fuel consumption of 9.6 – 9.4 liters per 100 kilometers (NEDC combined) constitutes a considerable increase in efficiency.

world luxury | MONTHLY | Issue 4 | UAE



The Emirate of Ajman is one of the seven states constituting the United Arab Emirates. With an area of just 260 square kilometres (100Â sq mi), Ajman is the smallest of the emirates by area. Its seat of government is the city of Ajman, aî…šer which it is named. The emirate is bordered on its north, south, and east by the Emirate of Sharjah. It has a population of some 240,000.

| 90 |

MAN Located on the coast of the Persian Gulf, Ajman also controls two small inland exclaves: Manama and Masfut, both of which are primarily agricultural. Approximately 95% of the population of the emirate resides in the city of Ajman, which forms part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Ajman is ruled by Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi of the Al Nuaimi tribe. The Crown Prince of the Emirate is Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi. While there is a known Ajami tribe extant in modern Saudi Arabia, the name of the city and Emirate of Ajman could also come from the Arabic 'Ajm', or 'Persians' or alternatively a diminutive of Oman 'Ayman'.

Ajman is the smallest of the United Arab Emirates, covering only 260 square kilometres (100 sq mi). The city lies on the coast of the Persian Gulf and is home to some 95% of the emirate's population. In 2010, the population was 262,000, of which 16% was Emirati according to official statistics.

As well as the city of Ajman, the emirate also encompasses two landlocked exclaves, Manama and Masfut. Manama is in the plains at the foothills of the Hajjar Mountains some 60 km east of Ajman city, while Masfut is in the mountains proper, some 110 km south of Ajman City. The city and main territory of Ajman is bordered to the landward side by Sharjah, while Manama shares borders with Sharjah and Fujairah. Masfut borders Oman, Dubai (the village and exclave of Haa) and Ras Al Khaimah. Both Manama and Masfout are fertile regions and support widespread agricultural development.

| 92 |

Most of the main emirate's landmass is developed, with extensive suburbs stretching out almost to the E311 arterial road, with light industrial zones and warehousing towards the north east. Ajman's creek has been dredged and walled to form a port area and this is the location for the Ajman Port and the Ajman Free Zone. Ajman has a thriving textile industry, and is home to some 15% of the UAE's manufacturing firms.

The Red Fort was built during Sheikh Humaid bin Abdul Aziz Al Nuaimi (1910-1928), and consists of four rooms in two towers. The fort was restored in 1986 and a third tower was added to the two older towers. Gravel and red plaster were used in the construction of the walls of the fort and hence it was named the Red Fort. Sandalwood was used in the beams and supports for the construction of the roofs.

The small areas of sandy desert outside the city support scant seasonal growths of wild grasses and scrub, ghaf trees and occasional date palms. Acacia and ghaf trees are to be found in abundance in Manama, which has long been established as an agricultural centre. Date palm groves and fruit tree plantations are characteristic of Masfut.

Manama museum, opened on 2 December 2012, is located in Al Mareer Fort, which was originally built during the reign of Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi (1873 – 1891). A yard overlooks seven rooms and a well. The fort is surrounded by palm trees irrigated by the old Manama Falaj. Located on the Ajman Corniche, the square Al Murabaa Watchtower was built in the 1930s.

Places of interest Ajman Fort was formerly the residence of the Ruler of Ajman but turned over to Ajman Police as their barracks in 1967. It was subsequently converted into a museum and houses an eclectic collection of artefacts and exhibitions of traditional life in Ajman.

Ajman's busy corniche is a popular evening and weekend destination for families and features a number of fast food outlets, coffee shops and stalls. It is home to the 'Outside Inn', a popular watering hole with expatriates, as well as to a number of hotels, including the Ramada, Ajman Palace, the Kempinski and the luxurious Ajman Saray.

The exclusive Crystal writing instrument collection was born of the creative partnership between two legendary manufacturers, Geneva-based Caran d’Ache and the French master of fine crystal, Lalique. The unique style of this limited edition creation juxtaposes the refinement of Art Deco with the iconic Coutard motif, a succession of drops of water springing forth in a fine cascade, created by René Lalique in 1935 for the Fontaine de Coutard. A symbol of life and rebirth, in tribute to the drop of ink with which writing begins, the finely embossed Coutard motif adorns the white or black ceramic body of the pen. In its supremely refined version issued in an 18-piece limited edition, the theme is expressed with diamonds sprinkled across white gold. hp:// editions-limitees/crystaledition-limitee

world luxury | MONTHLY | Issue 4 | UAE



A one and a half hour drive from Abu Dhabi city, Al Ain is one of the world's oldest permanently inhabited selements, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city abounds in picturesque forts. One of the UAE’s most historic buildings, Al Jahili Fort was erected in 1891 to defend the city and protect precious palm groves and is home to a permanent exhibition of the work of British adventurer Sir Wilfred Thesiger and his 1940s crossings of the Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter) desert. The redeveloped Al Qaara Fort is now home to a brilliant arts centre and gallery, offering hundreds of modern exhibits.

| 154 |

Get to grips with our culture and heritage with a visit to the city’s museums. With three main sections archaeology, ethnography and gis, Al Ain National Museum lets you explore various aspects of UAE life, including Bedouin jewellery and traditional musical instrument collections. The former home of the late UAE founder, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Al Ain Palace Museum houses a large collection of material about the ruling family. Visitors can tour the private rooms and gardens once occupied by the ‘Father of the Nation’.

AL AIN For stunning views of the city, drive, take a cab or, if you have the stamina, cycle to the top of Jebel Hafeet – a rocky height dominating the city - via a winding highway. Rising 1,240 metres, this is the emirate’s highest peak, and UAE’s second. Other aractions include the Al Ain oasis with its cool, shady walkways and a 3,000-year-old falaj irrigation system, and the camel market-one of the last few remaining. This date palm oasis has been recognised by the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) for its importance as a repository of genetic resources, biodiversity and cultural heritage.

Families should head to Al Ain Zoo – home to over 4,000 animals, and enjoy giraffe feeding, camel riding and ‘Elezba’ peing zoo. There are plenty of green public spaces for picnics and also playgrounds, a cafeteria and a train tour of the wildlife area. For a fun day out, try the renovated Hili Fun-City, the Gulf's oldest theme park, which now offers one of the cheapest days out, with entry no more than AED 40 (US$ 11). Watersports lovers need to try Wadi Adventure, the region’s only man-made white water raing, kayaking and surf facility built in the foothills of the majestic Jebel Hafeet. LUXURY REDEFINED

EXPLORE AL AIN Al Ain was once a vital oasis on the caravan route from the UAE to Oman. The history of the 'Oasis City,' the emirate's heritage heartland and one of the world's oldest permanently inhabited selements, can be explored through visits to the Al Ain forts (one of which has now been transformed into an arts centre), the Al Ain National Museum and a trip to the prehistoric tombs at Hili Fort -known to be over 4,000 years old. Other aractions include the Al Ain oasis, Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort, the camel market -one of the last few remaining, Wadi Adventure, a manmade white water raing, kayaking and surfing playground in the shadow of Jebel Hafeet, and the world's most advanced go-karting facilities, for a taste of the fast track. For family fun, try the newly renovated Hili Fun-City, the Gulf's oldest theme park, which now offers one of the cheapest days out around, with entry no more than AED 40 (US$ 11). AL AIN ZOO This 900 hectare park near the base of Jebel Hafeet is where visitors can see a large animal collection in enclosures that closely resemble their natural habitats. There are plenty of green public spaces for picnics and also playgrounds, a cafeteria and a train tour of the wildlife area. The Al Ain Zoo is home to over 4,000 animals, with at least 30% of its 180 species considered endangered. Conservation efforts have been strengthened by partnerships with San Diego Zoo, the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden in Miami, and the World Association of Zoos & Aquariums. AL AIN OASIS In the heart of Al Ain, near Al Ain National Museum, this impressive oasis is filled with palm plantations, many of which are still working farms. The cool, shady walkways transport you from the heat and noise of the city to a tranquil haven; all you'll hear is birdsong and the rustle of the palm fronds.

AL AIN SAFARI Magnificently positioned against the imposing backdrop of Jebel Hafeet, the Al Ain Safari has been carefully craed out of the desert environment. At 217 hectares it is one of the world’s largest man-made African Safaris and home to a range of native African animals and 2500 plants. The overall safari experience is completely unique, primarily because visitors are driven entirely by Emirati tour-guides. This special element elevates the safari experience to a new level and highlights the local tradition of warm, sophisticated hospitality and unrivalled passion for the UAE’s proud heritage. AL AIN PALACE MUSEUM Known as the Al Ain Palace Museum, the former home of the late UAE founder, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Palace was once a political and social hub. Built in 1937 and then renovated in 1998, the building finally became a museum in 2001. Now creatively restored, the museum houses a large collection of material about the ruling family. Visitors can tour the private rooms and gardens once occupied by the ‘Father of the Nation’. AL AIN NATIONAL MUSEUM On the edge of Al Ain Oasis, this museum showcases the city's unique heritage and history. It is housed in the same compound as the Sultan Bin Zayed Fort (also known as the Eastern Fort). Divided into three main sections - archaeology, ethnography and gis - its presentations illustrate various aspects of UAE life and include an interesting collections of Bedouin jewellery, musical instruments, weapons, and a reconstruction of a traditional majlis.

AL AIN EQUESTRIAN, SHOOTING & GOLF CLUB In the shadow of the soaring Jebel Hafeet heights, this is our Oasis City’s first 18-hole facility and a fantastic environment in which to play golf and absorb the recuperative majesty of the emirate’s second-largest city. To ensure a consistent challenge, the picturesque, tranquil, Par 71 front nine is compelling, visually scenic, yet a relatively short challenge. With water in play on 12 holes, this stern but decidedly conquerable test also includes the Arabian Gulf’s longest Par 5 – the mammoth, 678yard Hole 10. To complement the 18-hole mainstay, there’s also a floodlit, nine-hole, par three Academy Course – which is ideal for a round of night golf. Numerous stables accommodate up to 155 horses, while supporting equestrian facilities include an outdoor arena made of sandblast - one of the best surfaces to learn and ride on – four surface arenas, 15 sand paddocks, three specialised horse walkers and a 3,000-metre international-standard race track. A huge visitor araction is the club’s unrivalled lessons programme. With expert horseback riding tuition for children and adults of all levels, the centre’s riding academy is unlike any other training facility in the UAE in that it offers students of all ages a wide range of riding disciplines to choose from. Simply show up, then saddle up!

Similarly, birds such as the Houbara, the mute swan and the Canadian goose, all call Telal Resort their home. Salukis (Greyhounds), known for their loyalty, were once unwavering companions to the Bedouins and continue to be sought aer in the region. Along with the falcons, they were used for hunting. At Telal Resort, the hounds and falcons remain part of the Zaman Lawal Heritage Village, where guests can see the majestic creatures dancing across the dunes and the oasis of Telal, as they roam free within the resort.

CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE OVERVIEW Although The Address Montgomerie Dubai has evolved into one of the Middle East's most luxurious and desirable golfing destinations in recent times, the key to its success has always remained contingent upon the quality of the golf course that would become the focal point for one of Dubai's most exclusive residential communities, Emirates Hills. The course provides the player with undulating "links land" style fairways with generous landing areas which challenge and intrigue all levels of player. Although large in size, the greens can be very misleading, especially as they are consistently rolling above 9.5feet. Plenty of shape throughout the greens can result in some very trying pus. One of the signature holes is the par 5 fourth, dubbed the Snake hole for its saddleback fairway which doglegs towards the green, with two bunkers behind forming the eyes of the snake. Further on, the par 5 ninth, with water down the le, is a tough finish to the opening half. The par 3 thirteenth, a hole designed in the shape of the UAE, boasts a 360 degree teeing area around an island fairway and green, allowing for a completely different golf hole to be played every time. However, it is the par 5 eighteenth that offers a more classic test.

| 290 |

“At 656 yards it is a monster and, with water protecting the front of the green, it defies even the best player to hit the green in two.” The Address Montgomerie Dubai offers two very different seasons of golf. During winter, the golf course is over-seeded whilst the summer season has the course back to a full stand of Bermuda grass. The turf growth is vigorous during the summer resulting in a very challenging rough. THE ACADEMY BY TROON GOLF The Academy by Troon Golf, one of the finest teaching facilities in the world right here at The Address Montgomerie Dubai. The aim is to create a learning environment, which develops and improves our students golfing ability and knowledge of their swing through coaching rather than teaching.

AERO SYSTEM SPEAKERS BY LALIQUE A marriage of innovation and crasmanship, born from a meeting between Silvio Denz, CEO of the prestigious house of Lalique, and Jean Michel Jarre, the genius of electronic music. Two worlds, which on the surface seem to be completely opposite of each other, have come together in their quest for excellence. LUXURY REDEFINED

world luxury | MONTHLY | Issue 4 | UAE

To further their pursuit for innovation, these two men have combined their values and talents. Together, they have created an object that combines their expertise: the AeroSystem One® by Lalique. In one respect, Jean Michel Jarre created the Aerosystem One® for Jarre Technologies, as the embodiment of a unique experience known for its unbeatable sound quality. In the other respect, Lalique cultivates its tradition of excellence and innovation by seeking new forms in new worlds. From these two worlds, the Aerosystem One® by Lalique was born, a speaker with extraordinary acoustic qualities, enhanced by crystal.

| 426 |

AEROSYSTEM SPEAKERS BY LALIQUE Lalique crystal, which decorates this speaker, reveals sparkling jets of water which emerge from the intriguing Masque de Femme, an iconic motif of this prestigious crystal house. This Art-Deco style mask reveals the face of a mysterious woman, with subtle features, surrounded by aquatic wildlife. Like a fingerprint, the face seems perfectly captured in the crystal. To create this piece of work, 13 master glassblowers blow, cut and polish crystal with their expert hands into a design that is so emblematic of Lalique. The artisans from Lalique have managed to enhance and illuminate the speaker created by Jean Michel Jarre and to raise it to the rank of a true piece of contemporary art.

HERITAGE AND CULTURE Ras Al Khaimah has been the site of human habitation for several millennia and its indigenous cultural traits portray the real flavor of Arabia. Today, the native values, heritage and culture which have evolved over centuries, continue to thrive the modern look, infrastructure, facilities and the moderately liberal lifestyle that characterize Ras Al Khaimah. Ras Al Khaimah’s culture is rooted in a long tradition of literary work, camel races, falconry, traditional artwork, fishing, pearl farming and the cultural exchange brought about by trade routes. The local museums and forts provide visitors with a glimpse of the emirate’s cultural life, history and heritage. The people of Ras Al Khaimah are welcoming and friendly. Many are employed in the fishing, trading and agricultural industries and while you can still see farmers growing date-palms, Bedouins (tribes) roaming the desert and fishermen trading by the coast, increasing modern industries are taking over. However, the emirate is keen to promote and preserve its heritage, particularly its fishing and sea trading villages of Julfar and Jazirat Al Hamra; the oasis selements in Shimal, Falayah and Dhayah; and the remote villages of the Al HajjarMountains.

Many people imagine cities in the UAE to be in the shadow of soaring skyscrapers, but Ras Al Khaimah City, the capital of the Emirate has the majestic backdrop between both the mountains and the sea. Divided into two parts by a natural creek, a bridge connects the old city with the newer part with old souks and historic buildings siing comfortably alongside newer glitzy malls and office blocks. Both sides are vibrant and exciting, home to four fihs of the Emirate’s population, yet there’s an atmosphere of a small, convivial, bustling town. National Dress The present national clothes are a continuation of the old costumes of early Muslims. However, due to the cultural changes that have taken place in all the classes of the society, the national clothes, especially women's clothes, have changed significantly. LUXURY REDEFINED

Women's clothes Women's clothes in the UAE look like the usual clothes worn by women all over the Arabian Peninsula. The dress, commonly called "Nafnoof", "Al Goon" or "makawar" is a long variety that reaches down to the feet. UAE women also wear an embroidered "Kandoorah" whose style varies according to its embroidery, fashion or material. Men's clothes Mens clothes are simple in design and colours. Men all over the country nearly wear the same main dress called “Kandurah”. The design of the Kandurah differs slightly in some places or according to the weather. Popular Arts The UAE in general and Ras Al Khaimah in particular is well known for its folklore, folk music, folk dance and other traditional and popular art forms which embody and reflect the social, ethical and aesthetic values of the community. Traditional dances for example are meaningful movements played rhythmically to symbolize the common ideas and likes of a certain community. Al Wahabiyyah It is one of the oldest art forms of Ras Al Khaimah and is performed only here. The songs during this performance are divided into three sections. Drum players stand between two rows of performers comprising the band. One of the performers begins by reciting a line of poetry. He repeats it a number of times until the other performers have memorized it. Then he recites another line of poetry from the same poem. The first line is a start and the second is the astinato or pedal. The two rows of dancers rhythmically move forward and backward, a row bows and drummers keep drawing nearer to it for 10 minutes while moving their heads. The opposite row repeats the some movements as the drummers draw nearer to them as well. Dancers with swords and guns add charm to the show. This folkdance is usually performed on special occasions, feast days and at wedding parties. Local Cuisine Ras Al Khaimah’s kitchen is known for its delicious dishes and recipes passed from one generation to another.

Local people, being seafarers and merchants for centuries, brought into the country exotic plants, spices and recipes from all over the world. Therefore, traces of Indian, Egyptian, Iranian and Turkish cuisines can also be found in local dishes. LUXURY REDEFINED

The aention to detail can be seen in the choice of placing appliqués on the edge of the openworked spaces on the dial to highlight their beautiful edges. The tonneau-shaped mechanical movement with a 30-second tourbillon and seven-day power reserve demonstrates the expertise of the Manufacture and its pursuit of producing sophisticated timepieces with a refined design. The flaened oval-shaped white gold case features a dial adorned with Côtes de Genève the very same Côtes de Genève that decorate classically designed movements. This motif gives the face of the watch aesthetic tension while signalling its allegiance to traditional watchmaking. The dial is openworked around the tourbillon so that the magnificent seings of the regulating organ can be admired. Similarly, the dial is perforated to reveal part of the watch's gears and serve as a reminder of the film "Modern Times". The Ovale Tourbillon 1 is also available as a version that exudes even more sophistication. The oval case, this time made from rose gold, is paired with a shiny black dial. The dial is made from onyx, a stone used to make seals in Antiquity. The mysterious seduction of onyx is ideally suited to this model.

Combining a sporty design with prestige mechanics, the Chronograph CAMBIANO offers a level of technical and aesthetic refinement that immediately places this collection in a class of its own.

| 572 |

WHILE THE AFFINITY between the Chronograph CAMBIANO and the Tourbillon OTTANTA® is clear, this new timepiece is the result of in-depth development adapted to its functions and specific features.



| 573 |

world luxury | MONTHLY | Issue 4 | UAE

Following the example of its predecessor, from which it inherits certain aesthetic codes such as the oscillating weight and screws, the Chronograph CAMBIANO presents a varied topography united by a succession of curves and sharp angles. Architecturally rich, it is structured with contrasting finishes and surface treatments selected with meticulous aention to detail. The superbly proportioned AMADEO convertible case allows the timepiece to be used as a wristwatch, miniature clock, pocket watch or sports counter. The steel case-band and caseback have a circular satin finish, while the bezel, support, bow and crown are in ball-milled steel with black DLC coating. The push-pieces of the chronograph, shaped to resemble an accelerator, are arranged symmetrically on either side of the bow at 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock in keeping with BOVET’s customary aesthetic codes. This positioning ensures perfect ergonomics regardless of which case configuration is used. For optimal functionality and perfect clarity, chronograph and time indications are displayed separately. Chronograph functions are therefore arranged on the dial’s horizontal axis, with the seconds hand naturally in the centre, the minute counter at 9 o’clock and the hour counter at 3 o’clock. Time indications meanwhile occupy the dial’s vertical axis, with hours and minutes in the centre, seconds at 6 o’clock and large date at 12 o’clock. In addition, to eliminate any possible confusion, the chronograph hands are blued, while time indications are shown by rhodium-plated hands. Perfectly balanced, the small seconds-hand with its stylised design is evocative of the motor car and the world of watchmaking. BOVET crasmen employed all their expertise and experience to accurately convey the intent of the Italian designers and create a dial of spellbinding technical complexity. The finished article, comprising 35 components on five levels, meets all design criteria to the leer (design, volumes, legibility and sportiness).

| 574 |

The Chronograph CAMBIANO has been rigorously tested to ensure absolute reliability regardless of the environment in which it is used. Its combination of technical and aesthetic refinement places the Chronograph CAMBIANO at once in the “specialist” and “versatile” categories of prestige sports timepieces.

BLACK BLACK DARK SIDE OF THE MOON It was the adventures and the accomplishments of the Apollo 8 astronauts that inspired the allblack, ceramic Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, but it is the mystique of the Earth’s nightlight and its ever-changing yet constant presence that has spurred the creation of the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon "Black Black". This 44.25 mm model has a polished and brushed black ceramic casebody, a ma black ceramic dial and a black ceramic clasp on a black coated nylon fabric strap.

| 580 |

Giving this model its nickname are its brushed blackened Moonwatch-style hands and blackened applied indexes – all of which are coated with black Super-LumiNova. The familiar sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock are also ma black and the black ceramic bezel has a black lacquered tachymeter scale. At its heart is the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300.

INSPIRED BY A LEGACY This timepiece is the product of groundbreaking technologies: it is craed from a single block of black zirconium oxide ceramic. The OMEGA Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” redefines the iconic design of the Moonwatch and its name evokes the mysteriousness and allure of space. ZIRCONIUM OXIDE MATERIAL The black zirconium oxide ceramic dial is complemented by a matching ceramic 44.25 mm case with a brushed and polished ceramic casebody. The two polished ceramic chronograph control pushers on the case function totally independently - accordingly, there is no risk to the chronograph mechanism as a result of inadvertent manipulation. EXTENDING THE CERAMIC SPEEDMASTER FAMILY Rhapsodized, romanticized and analysed, the Moon has always enchanted us. It was the adventures and the accomplishments of the Apollo 8 astronauts that inspired the all-black, ceramic Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, but it is the mystique of the Earth’s nightlight that has spurred the creation of four new OMEGA timepieces that are now part of the collection. hps:// dmaster/moonwatch/omega-co-axialchronograph/31192445101005/

EXPO 202 20 OCTOBER 2020

Dubai’s Expo will be a festival of human ingenuity. The engines of growth are no longer steampowered. Instead, collaboration and partnership have taken its place, becoming the driving force behind new developments. Expo will showcase and explore what is possible when new ideas and people connect. • Between its opening day on 20 October 2020, and its closing date on 10 April 2021, we expect Expo to be visited 25 million times. • 70% of all visitors are expected to come from outside the UAE - the largest proportion of international visitors in Expo history.

| 586 |

• We aim to create and deliver an inclusive and global Expo with over 200 participants that include nations, multilateral organisations, corporates and educational institutions. • Expo 2020 also has an ambitious volunteer programme, which aims to include more than 30,000 volunteers from a wide range of ages, nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. • The Expo site covers a total of 4.38 square kilometres, including a 200 hectare gated area. It is located within the Dubai South District, adjacent to Al Maktoum International Airport.


THE JOURNEY TO 2020 HAS STARTED We’re inviting people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, including national governments, businesses, academia, civil society and citizens of the world, particularly the youth to be a part of this shared vision and the lasting legacy it will help us to create.

AN EXPO FOR EVERYONE FOR ALL TIME The 2020 World Expo will not be confined to a physical site, or to a six month period of time. It begins now, wherever people are coming together to think about what could be. Expo will provide a platform to foster creativity, innovation and partnership globally. We aim to work with others to accelerate the development of cuing-edge solutions, and scale them up so that they have a reach and value that stretches far beyond the event itself. LUXURY REDEFINED

AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE Between October 2020 and April 2021, Dubai will host the next World Expo. Bringing together more than 180 nations and an international audience of 25 million visitors, it will be one of the greatest shows on Earth—an unforgeable, once in a lifetime experience. We are preparing for an event that will enthral and amaze the many millions who visit, providing a sense of wonder at the ability of people, working together, to envisage and achieve a beer tomorrow.

OUR WORLD IS AN AMAZING PLACE, FULL OF HUMAN-MADE WONDERS. Expo 2020 Dubai is guided by the belief that innovation and progress are the result of people and ideas combining in new ways, which explains our theme: ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. For six months, Dubai’s Expo will play host to hundreds of countries, companies and people who bring insight into what is possible in the spheres of opportunity, mobility and sustainability. Millions of people from around the world will be able to share an experience that has one aim: to contribute to building a beer future.

THE UAE: HOST NATION FOR EXPO 2020 Expo 2020 will be the first World Expo to take place in the MEASA (Middle East, Africa and South Asia) region. The UAE demonstrates the power of connections. The nation is home to two major hub airports, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and also two leading airlines. It also has nine major sea ports, including Jebel Ali, the ninth largest container port in the world. The UAE is also a nation built on the power of connections, between seven emirates, and people of 200 different nationalities who meet, work together and form friendships every day. Because of this, the nation is convinced of the ability of Expo 2020 to spark collaboration and partnership amongst the international community to seek collective solutions for a beer future. The UAE has an established track record of successful participation in World Expos. The national pavilion from the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai is now a permanent fixture on the skyline of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. We are excited to be hosting the 2020 World Expo, which will welcome 25 million visitors from around the world. LUXURY REDEFINED

CONNECTING MINDS CREATING THE FUTURE Expo 2020 Dubai’s theme is ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. It recognises that generating sustainable solutions to global problems demands collaboration across cultures, nations and regions. It is a reflection of the modern world: connected as never before, and changing with great speed. Today, the world’s biggest accommodation provider owns no hotels. The largest soware providers do not write the apps they sell. The number one retailer stocks no products and the most popular media organisation in the world creates no content. These companies have each recognised the value of sharing and collaboration, made possible by new technology. They empower people to say and do things differently; to connect with others, and to create something new. This what Expo 2020, its participants and visitors will explore. How, by connecting, collaborating and forming new partnerships, can we develop ideas and innovate in order to create a beer future? LUXURY REDEFINED

OPPORTUNITY, MOBILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY The nations and organisations that take part in Expo, and the millions who visit, will explore the power of connections across the spheres of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability - our three subthemes. Expo will focus on three aspects of Opportunity: developing human capital to stimulate progress; the necessity of ďŹ nancial capital as a resource to support growth; and partnerships as a primary driver of innovation and employment.

| 596 |

We will explore a number of facets of Mobility: empowering individuals through physical mobility; facilitating access and distribution of goods and resources; and enhancing virtual connectivity through information technology. And our exhibits will examine the role of natural and built habitats in ensuring human well-being and community resilience; and the need to use resources without compromising the ability of the planet to sustain future generations, as part of the Sustainability sub theme.
