LUXURY WATCHES

Richard Mille RM 07-02 Automatic Pink Sapphire Richard Mille’s success is founded upon three crucial elements: the best in technical innovation, the best of artistry and architecture, the best of the heritage and culture of fine watchmaking with hand finishing. From the very inception of the brand, Richard Mille endeavored to apply the techniques and materials found in the most innovative sectors such as in the domains of F1 racing car development and the aerospace industry to watchmaking, with the goal of creating an extreme timepiece, without compromise, without gimmicks.

Case The bezel, caseband and case back of the RM 0702 are made from solid blocks of Pink Sapphire. Sapphire is known as a particularly scratchresistant material with a hardness of 1800 Vickers. Created from crystals of aluminum oxide (Al2O3), its transparency is a result of the purity of composition. Creating a case of this quality took over 40 days of machining, including 430 hours spent pre-forming the case components and 350 hours polishing the caseband/ bezel/case back ensemble. Gems rotor with variable geometry Heavy external outside edge and heavy edge ring in 5N red gold - Ceramic ball bearing This rotor with variable geometry enables winding to be adjusted to the owner’s activity level. Adjusting the two weights, which can be slid sideways into the correct position and fixed in place by spline screws, modifies the seing. Inertia of the movement is optimal when the two weights are closer to each other, and the barrel rewinds more quickly. If the weights are positioned at either end of the rotor, the inertia is considerably reduced, resulting in the barrel winding more slowly. Free sprung balance with variable inertia This type of balance wheel represents the ultimate in innovation. It guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shocks and also during movement assembly and disassembly, hence beer chronometric results over time. The regulator index is eliminated and a more accurate and repeatable adjustment is possible thanks to 4 small adjustable weights located directly on the balance. www.richardmille.com

LUXURY BEAUTY

Christian Louboutin Beauty The story started with a stroke of red nail colour and the legend continues 22 years later. Over the years Christian realised that his understanding of femininity and elegance had gone beyond shoes. People were already embracing the spirit of the brand, so stepping into beauty was natural for Louboutin. A milestone in the history of Christian Louboutin is the way he created 'Pensée', a shoe designed in 1992 influenced by Warhol and the Pop Art movement. Having drawn the shoe perfectly to his satisfaction, he was disappointed when he saw the prototype. Something was missing, even though it was very close to the initial drawing.While staring at the prototype he saw his assistant painting her nails at her desk next to him. He sponteneously grabbed the nail polish and proceeded to paint the sole of the shoe. He liked it... HE LOVED IT.... ET VOILA! The signature red sole was born. Like the nail polishes before them, the lipsticks are designed as objects of desire as much as they are colour cosmetics - in vial-like golden packaging with ribbon ties. The 38 colours are available as Silky Satin, Velvet Mae and Sheer Voile finishes - including a classic crimson, of course. www.christianlouboutin.com

TIME TO TAKE AC

KOENIGSE

The CCX and CCXR were difficult cars to follow as their performance and functionality remains very competitive. Still, there is always room for change and improvement. So Koenigsegg came up with a new interior, featuring the now famous ‘ghost’ lighting system, where all interior symbols are created with laser etched, virtually invisible nano-holes through the aluminum panels and buons.

| 54 |

Furthermore, the Agera featured a unique 7 speed transmission with a E-diff and wet clutch functionality developed by Koenigsegg, a transmission that truly enhanced performance and handling. The Agera was the first model to feature the Koenigsegg developed VGR wheels. They are real air turbines, increasing the downforce of the car by measurable amounts and improving

Given that the offset and width is different front to rear, all four wheels have their own unique design. The VGR wheels are forged and then fully machined to the final shape.

THE NEW 911 TARGA 4S

Yet again, everything comes back into play. It’s about a new benchmark. A sports car that has only ever existed once in this form. That has been a source of fascination for generations. And is firmly anchored in our heart and soul. It’s about the future of the 911. We are always looking forward. Not sideways, never back. We don’t want to rest on the laurels of our past, no maer how illustrious it may be. All the racing victories. The dreams. Our fans. Thousands of ideas. We hold them in our hearts. But we start from scratch. And we will give everything we’ve got. We will go on the aack, to get even beer. And we will fight, to defend our

| 56 |

lead. With one single goal: to create the next 911, one that can do more, deliver more and consume less than ever before. A sports car as beautiful now as it was on day one. That is our tradition. And our future. We will give it our all. For the best 911 of all times: the new 911. At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That’s forbidden. The only thing that maers is this question: how can we become even beer? Let’s put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance.


EVER AHEAD The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the ďŹ rst 911 Turbo. Developed completely from scratch, the sixcylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera and Targa 4 models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way.

The stand-out qualities of the new twinturbo engines are their extraordinarily direct responsiveness and wide torque plateau, reached early in the low end of the rpm band. Combined with the high rev limit – and the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. In short: excellent performance that feeds back to the driver in an instant. www.porsche.com/usa/models/911/911-targa4s/

LUXURY CRYSTAL

LALIQUE Révélation Bacchantes Vase

>>

Limited edition (99 pieces), clear crystal • €60,00.00 Produced by the lost wax technique, the Revelation Bacchantes Vase appears as if a Bacchantes Vase is suspended in a cube of crystal. A very difficult piece to produce, the Revelation Bacchantes Vase requires several weeks to be completed by the talented and devoted artisans of Lalique. In 1927, René Lalique’s boundless imagination and creative genius led to the creation of the Bacchantes Vase. Young priestesses of Bacchus dance around the vase showing their beauty and curves. A work of unparallelled beauty, splendor and sensuality, this vase has become a lasting symbol of Lalique’s celebrated style. The use of satin and clear finishes on the vase bring life and movement to this exceptional piece of art. Dimensions: H 10.43" x L 9.06" x W 9.06" (H 26,5 cm x L 23 cm x W 23 cm) Weight: 81.57 lbs (37 kg) Limited edition of 99 pieces, piece delivered with a certificate of authenticity mentioning its number Handcraed in France www.lalique.com/en/catalog/decorative-items/vases/revelationbacchantes-vase

Tianlong Vase

Limited edition (88 pieces), amber crystal • €39,000.00 Lalique celebrates the Tianlong Dragon, symbol of strength, wealth and life through the Tianlong Black Vase. The vase is produced as a limited edition of 88 pieces to honor the number 8, believed to bring good luck in the Asian culture. Entirely fashioned by hand, this vase requires great artistic and technical mastery. To create this outstanding work of art, the Lalique artisans use their exclusive process of double-injection. The center of the vase is open and clear as the majestic black dragon surrounds it. The scales adorning the dragon's body and the open spaces inside its shape help define the body of the dragon bringing it magically to life. Dimensions: H 10.82" x D 11.81" (H 27,5 cm x D 30 cm) Weight: 33.07 lbs (15 kg) Limited edition of 88 pieces, piece delivered with a certificate of authenticity mentioning its number Handcraed in France

In order to participate in the fashioning of this exceptional artwork, a crasman must have received the distinction of Best Crasmen of France.

In the hot glass workshops, it takes eight to ten weeks of handwork to cra each of the eight legs, starting from 18 kg of crystal.

In 1991, this magnificent creation was presented to the public by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris at an exhibition to pay homage to the genius of René Lalique.

Designed by Studio Andrée Putman for Lalique, the ORGUE lighting collection is both timeless and contemporary.

It was born from the passion for beauty, the search for excellence, and the will to combine the talent and expertise of our glass-masters with the grand creativity of a Studio of international fame.

DIAMOND S ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND

GRAFF UNVEILS ‘THE GOLDEN EMPRESS’, A SPECTACULAR 132-CARAT FANCY YELLOW DIAMOND

| 76 |

Graff Diamonds just released images of a new statement diamond to add to what is a very long list of diamonds that are among the largest and rarest in the world. Graff’s latest catch is being called “The Golden Empress,” a 132.55-carat Fancy Intense cushioncut yellow diamond. The diamond is set on a necklace with approximately 30 other yellow diamonds. Fancy colored diamonds are very popular these days as adornment and investment, because of their beauty and rarity. Only one in 10,000 diamonds discovered are classified as fancy colored. So it’s even rarer to find one a particular color, such as this yellow diamond.


Laurence Graff, the founder of the international luxury diamond and jewelry firm that bears his name, purchased the 299-carat rough diamond that created The Golden Empress. It was unearthed from the Letšeng mine in the tiny southern African kingdom of Lesotho. “The potential to cra a diamond that could join its hall of noble, historic and world famous stones was a thrilling prospect,” Graff said in a statement.

The company then set out to study the rough to determine the best way to cut it and then set out to do the work. In addition to The Golden Empress, the rough yielded eight satellite diamonds, comprising six pear shape Fancy Yellow stones—the largest being 21.34 carats— and two brilliant round stones. www.graffdiamonds.com

LUXURY WATCHES & JEWELLERY

MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM COLLECTION William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a powerful evocation of an enchanted world. Beneath the branches of a magical forest, four separate romantic plots intertwine and eventually - resolve themselves into happy endings.

It incorporates elements which have always featured prominently in the spirit of the Maison, like the fairy. Slender and sensual, these small enchanted beings are depicted in graceful poses with wings of extreme delicacy. For Van Cleef & Arpels, they embody femininity.

A celebration of love and nature, the play has defined our vision of fairyland ever since its first performance. Now, Van Cleef & Arpels presents its own interpretation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece.

Nature is another of the Maison’s favorite themes. Jewels inspired by nature are always in perpetual motion: plants blown delicately by the wind or birds mid-flight. Van Cleef & Arpels’ creations put us face to face with nature in all her fragility. www.vancleefarpels.com

| 78 |


VAN CLEEF & ARPELS

LADY ARPELS FÉERIE ROUGE TIMEPIECE Fairies have always been a source of fascination for Van Cleef & Arpels and are the main representations of femininity to be found among the Maison’s creations. Six years aer launching the Fairy Poetic Complication™ timepiece, Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates once again the poetry of fairies with the Lady Arpels Féerie Rouge timepiece. It is a new, elegant interpretation of the Féerie story. The ruby red color of the dial invites us into a new world of enchantment. A fairy indicates the passing hours with her magic wand and the minutes with her fluering wings, perpetuating the tradition of legends and fairies dear to the Maison. The art of “guillochage” is one of the traditional cras of watchmaking. Dating from the 16th century, it consists in engraving a dial with a paern of intersecting lines to provide vitality and depth. The art of engraving consists in creating a given form from a block of material and giving it life. It all starts with a gold plate, on which the crasman traces the outline of the motif. The threedimensional work may then begin: cuing and polishing the metal, emphasizing the lines of a drawing or reproducing a texture.

This cra - which is carried out by hand - calls for traditional tools which are usually produced by the engraver himself, according to his needs. The quality of an engraver is measured not only by his technical prowess, but also by his ability to bring his material to life and instill his creations with all the poetry of the story he wishes to tell. The Lady Arpels Féerie Rouge features a swiss mechanical movement based on a JaegerLeCoultre 846 movement with a retrograde module developed exclusively for Van Cleef & Arpels. On displays known as “retrograde”, the hands and the wings trace an arc before returning instantly to their initial position in order to begin another journey. This constant dance enables the creation to be original and highly spectacular, requiring high-precision design and crasmanship. www.vancleefarpels.com

LUXURY PENS

MONTE THE ULTIMATE WRITING INSTRUMENT

Founded in 1912 as a “Manifaura pennini d’oro e penne stilografiche” (“Manufacturer of gold nibs and fountain pens”) Montegrappa has been manufacturing writing implements. Montegrappa – originally known as ELMO – benefied from a pool of local talents, a workforce able to produce finely craed objects, with style, with panache and with a drive to achieve excellence. Montegrappa’s factory is located on the bank of the River Brenta, the river winding through the town of Bassano del Grappa. Montegrappa’s geography and its Italian heritage are important elements of the company’s persona. ‘Italian-ness’ is at the heart of Montegrappa tradition. It defines the brand philosophy, its aitudes, its style. Almost immediately aer its birth, the Bassano factory found itself in a key position during the First World War. Its location was fortuitous, for Bassano was a key military position, and it would be marked by key bales toward the end of the

| 110 |

conflict. Among the many soldiers who used ELMO pens to write leers home were two celebrated American writers, then acting as war correspondents. Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos were both volunteer ambulance drivers at the front. The eloquent and evocative communiqués they sent from the front were recorded with the finely produced writing equipment manufactured in Bassano. Montegrappa has evolved from a writing instrument company with over a 100 years of heritage to a luxury lifestyle company. Living the Montegrappa Lifestyle has seen some of the most renowned icons give their endorsement to the brand. The Montegrappa Lifestyle is where old-meets-new, street-meets-boardroom, fashion-meets-function – the rules have changed to encourage a new freedom and crosspollination. Salvador Dalí stands side-by-side with Quincy Jones, Pelé kicks a ball to Ayrton Senna, the tradition harmonises with Hip-Hop.Through the ensuing decades, Montegrappa has produced


GRAPPA numerous models, now highly collectible. Montegrappa pens have played their part in history, for signing documents during key moments in the 20th Century. Boris Yeltsin gave his Dragon pen to Vladimir Putin on 2nd January 2000, and with this pen he symbolically handed over his power to him. Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev signs all official documents with the Montegrappa Extra 1930. Consolidating its position as the premier manufacturer of luxury pens, Montegrappa has produced a continuing flow of limited editions, commemorating events, locales and individuals.

Highly desirable pens such as the coveted Dragon have in turn aracted and inspired notable collectors. In 2010, France’s President, Nicolas Sarkozy, join the distinguished gathering of heads-of-state, popes, royalty, actors, musicians, artists, sportsmen, top models, writers and celebrities who have been proud owners of Montegrappa pens during its first century. To name a few, his fellow Montegrappa users include Vladimir Putin, Silvio Berlusconi, His Holiness John Paul II, His Majesty King Juan Carlos of Spain, His Majesty Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, Al Pacino, Zinedine Zidane, Naomi Campbell, Paulo Coelho and countless others.

MCLAREN 65 The McLaren 650S is the world’s most versatile supercar, and the Spider takes that one step further with a retractable hardtop that retains the McLaren 650S’s breathtaking dynamics while opening you up to a whole new dimension of driving enjoyment. Accelerate at low revs and you’ll feel its turbocharged pull. The mid-range will slam you back in your seat. You’ll love it because it looks gorgeous, but it took hundreds of hours of advanced computational fluid dynamics, weeks of wind-tunnel testing and an obsession with perfection to create the breathtaking contours of the McLaren 650S Spider. The result is beautiful bodywork that just happens to help your lap time. Proactive Chassis Control (PCC) gives you the best of both worlds, from supple suspension in town to roll-free cornering on the racetrack for ultimate exhilaration.

| 114 |

Every curve, every crease, every intake, every millimetre of the McLaren 650S Spider is honed to make you swoon as well as improve aerodynamic performance.

Every time you approach your McLaren 650S Spider, you’ll feel the same tingle of excitement. Every panel, every surface, every detail has been painstakingly designed to look just as good whether the roof is up or down.

HONDA MOVE THE ENGINE. SHIFT EXPECTATIONS. A breakthrough in aeronautics, the Over-TheWing Engine Mount was engineered and proven by Honda aer more than 20 years of extensive research and development. This innovative technology not only breaks the conventional mold set by the aerospace industry, but also provides category-leading advancements such as a more spacious cabin, noise reduction, and increased fuel efficiency. INNOVATIONS: NATURAL LAMINAR FLOW WING AND NOSE Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) maximizes performance. Advancements in aerodynamics and NLF technology were applied to the design of the main wing airfoil and fuselage nose shape of the HondaJet to reduce aerodynamic drag. This cuing-edge engineering innovation contributes to high cruising speed and increased fuel efficiency. INNOVATIONS: COMPOSITE FUSELAGE Lightweight structure, heavyweight performance. Unlike many jets that use aluminum, the HondaJet employs a lighter yet strong composite fuselage. The fuselage is created from a cuing-edge combination of co-cured integral structure and honeycomb sandwich structures.This results in increased cabin space, beer performance, and greater fuel efficiency.

| 126 |

INNOVATIONS: GARMIN® G3000 Advanced cockpit. The HondaJet cockpit is built for optimum safety based on thoughtful ergonomic design and stateof-the-art situational awareness. First, we give the pilot more space and greater visibility; next, fewer intrusions and more intuition. Our Garmin® G3000 next-generation all-glass avionics system brings pilot and aircra closer together with touch-screen technology. The dual touch-screen controllers and three 14-inch landscape highresolution displays offer enhanced navigation, flight planning, and control. The cockpit is unquestionably built around the pilot to enable either single-pilot or dual-pilot operation of the HondaJet.

COMFORT At home, miles above it. It’s called cabin space, and HondaJet provides more of it than any other jet in its class. But to you and your fellow passengers, it’s much more than a cabin. It’s a workspace, thinking space, quiet space, and a relaxing space. These are the true inspirations behind the HondaJet’s interior and why Honda designers meticulously considered every detail — from the completely adjustable executive seating to the fully private lavatory and a host of other modern amenities.


AJET PERFORMANCE The next generation of flight. The Honda Aircra Company has recreated the business jet from the ground up with a truly clean sheet design. By mounting engines over the wing, designing Natural Laminar Flow for the wing and fuselage, and applying other innovations, the HondaJet outperforms all other aircra in its class. The culmination of cuing-edge innovation makes the HondaJet the world’s most advanced light business jet. It climbs and cruises faster, soars higher, offers more room and less noise, and uses less fuel. “Unlike anything the sky has ever seen. We’re not just building a new jet. We’re building a new standard in aviation with Honda’s heritage.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL A global workforce. An investment in a private jet is a substantial one. The Honda Aircra Company, headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA, is a fully operational, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and home of a global R&D center geared up to build the fastest, most fuel-efficient jets in their class. Honda Aircra associates have assembled from more than 40 countries around the world to produce one of the most distinctive and advanced aircra to ever take to the sky. HONDA HERITAGE The progression of human mobility. For more than 60 years, Honda has helped the human race move with more speed, economy, grace, and joy. The HondaJet is the epitome of continually improving human mobility. The commitment to flight by Honda — a globally recognized and respected company — is as steadfast as its dedication to its landbound endeavors. www.hondajet.com
