Richard Mille: RM 53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough

August 9, 2018

Don’t Be “Shocked”

The goal of the ultra-innovative RM 53-01: imagine a watch so extremely shock resistant it can support even the most violent impacts of a polo game, all the while revealing its movement. 

Richard Mille looked to the automobile industry to get its inspiration for high-tech laminated glass. In this case, a polyvinyl film is sandwiched between two sapphire glasses, marking a first in watch making. The glass might crack, but will not break. Anti-UV and anti-reflection treatment also protect the movement from the exterior environment, another exclusivity patented by Richard Mille.

With an innovative reinforced structure, the barrel-shaped case is made of Carbone TPT®, providing phenomenal resistance and making it virtually indestructible. The blend of undulated design and the sharp lines of the case add a sporty look to this cutting-edge timepiece.

Characteristics: Carbone TPT case, Sapphire glass laminated with anti-UV and anti-reflection treatment, tourbillon movement with manual winding, double base-plates (central and peripheral), base-plates and bridges in Grade 5 titanium.  

Limited edition of 30 watches in Carbone TPT®

Key points: Sporty and innovative, the RM 53-01 represents the “shock” of the encounter between Richard Mille and Pablo Mac Donough, one of the world’s best polo players.

Plus: The tourbillon movement is suspended by two braided steel cables to be ultra shock-resistant. The unusual architecture of this watch design called for the development of dual base-plates.

Louis Moinet: Memoris

July 16, 2018

A Complete Redefinition Of Watch-Making Aesthetics

To pay tribute to Louis Moinet, artist, watchmaker, humanist, and the renowned inventor of the chronograph in 1816, Moinet Ateliers added a new element to its heritage: Memoris. The chronograph is no longer an additional function of the watch, but has become its aesthetic and technical focal point.

This revolutionary timepiece can be admired in its entirety as soon as the pusher is pressed. The clutch column wheel orchestrates the graceful ballet of the mechanism, transmitting information to the hands. The chronograph reigns alone on the dial.

Key points: Memoris was a prizewinner at the international Good Design Awards, one of the most highly renowned competitions. Its design goes beyond its utilitarian vocation, adding a touch of soul, the stuff that dreams are made of and a coherent aesthetic vision of what beauty should be.

Plus: The illusion is complete: the stars illuminate the midnight blue background. Each star is individually fashioned using a system of fixed burins, according to the different angles and depths that allow them, one by one, to capture as much light as possible. A first in watch-making design!

Characteristics: White or rose gold 46mm case, Waterproof to 5 ATM, Sapphire crystal, Crocodile leather strap

LAMBORGHINI: THE NEW URUS

July 13, 2018

The World’s First “Super Sport Utility Vehicle”

Lamborghini has launched its newest model, the Lamborghini Urus, the first “Super Sport Utility Vehicle.” A true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, and a unique emotional experience, the Urus is a powerful luxury SUV, with the driving dynamics of a great sports car every bit as appreciated by the driver as well as the passengers.

The Urus is equipped with a four-liter V8 bi-turbo motor with 650 HP (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 850 Nm.

Exterior Design 

Sporty, elegant, and all-terrain, the muscular surfaces of the Urus give this car a powerful, self-secure allure, while the mixed tires give it a luxury super sports car look. The extreme proportions and silhouette created by a single line from the front to the back of the vehicle make the Urus a true Lamborghini. The Urus design was inspired by the heritage of the LM002, in regard to the power dome showing the position of the engine and the significant diagonal lines, while the frameless doors recall the iconic Marcello Gandini line.

 

 

 

 

Interior Design

The interior of the Lamborghini Urus combines luxurious Italian craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology. The aerodynamic design concept, with a driver-oriented instrument panel featuring three screens, puts the driver’s needs at the forefront and makes the overall experience more comfortable and enjoyable. The interior can be customized to accentuate its elegance or sportiness, through the selection of different colors and kinds of materials, such as leather, Alcantara®, wood, aluminum, or carbon.

Key Points: The Urus is a versatile vehicle par excellence, with everyday usability, yet true to Lamborghini spirit with its typical motor noise, its sense of emotional impact, and high-performance personality. 

Plus: The Lamborghini Urus is the first super sports car with five seats.

NEW YACHT DESIGN: XHIBITIONIST

June 25, 2018

Intelligently designed to turn heads

Far from being fiction, this yacht is quite far from the ordinary. Imagined by Swedish design studio Gray Design, this revolutionary project is sure to delight car and boat aficionados the world over.

A sense of relaxation starts on the bridge. The open space and Jacuzzi provide the basics for relaxing and enjoying the sunny, expansive views. In fact, Xhibitionist has put the sun right in the heart of its functionality.

As if from under the hood of a sports car, solar panels unfold to create a large platform. In addition to providing energy for the yacht, they are robust enough to serve as a heliport, or a concert stage… Can you imagine listening to live music on this stage before 10,000 people in a marina? The size of these solar panels gives an idea of the yacht’s energy efficiency and its degree of tranquility while in port. The solar power also provides free energy for nighttime lighting.

The motors are clearly visible behind a large glass wall that allows for easy access for maintenance, and of course hours of amusement for those who love naval engineering. They will be especially impressed by the choice of hybrid drive system that controls this 85-meter nautical wonder (14-meter radius).

Key points: Based on the lines of a luxury sports car, the exterior shape reflects the creator’s designs for supercars (such as the Xhibit-G created in keeping with the Xhibitionist yacht concept).

Plus: Completely futurist, the extremely robust solar panels can serve as a helipad.

Characteristics: 
LOA 278 feet (85m)
Beam 39 feet (12m)
Speed 28 knots
