Discovering the ultimate sporty watches

Category:

Watches and sport. A very strong combination originating from the need to measure time perfectly in the challenges
of man facing records, extreme situations and new competitions. Sport watch represents also a new aesthetic category and a style expressed by perfect volumes, particular colours and a marked innovation in design. The most popular have become classic, evergreen, perfect for formal and leisure occasions.

No doubt: the top brand boasting an undiscussed leadership in the sport watch sector is Rolex, with a turnover of 5 million euros a year, gradually heading towards a development of their iconic collections. New models bet on colour: GMT-Master II uses Cerachrom ceramics with a double red/blue colour effect, provided with a 24hour rotating bezel, dedicated to travellers, allowing time visualisation in different time zones.

Omega celebrate their Seventies from the creation of Seamaster – James Bond’s watch – presenting a collection completely restyled inside and outside, following the special models issued with the Olympic Games collection (Pyeongchang 2018).

On the occasion of their 30th Anniversary occurring this year, Chopard have presented a watch featuring quadrants of five different colours. Each one of them is dedicated to one of the five nations competing in the Millemiglia: “Rosso Corsa Italiano”, “British racing green”, “Speed Silver” for the German Silver Arrows, “Speed Yellow” for Belgium and “Blue Vintage” for Bugatti and the French Talbot, with the quadrant’s graphic inspired to the car dashboard of the late Twenties.

excellence magazine orologiOfficine Panerai have presented Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech. It displays a watch-case in carbotech carbon fibre, a composite material, absolutely innovative in high-end clockwork.

Vintage Playroom Ideas Perfect for your Little Hipster

Nowadays playrooms are incredibly boring. It’s a harsh truth. It’s all a myriad of white, with white, with a few splashes of colour, with white again. We’re not saying there aren’t good designs out there, we’re just stating the fact that most of the times it gets buried deep under the beautiful madness that is design on the web. But good design, above everything else, doesn’t have to be or to feel modern, per se.  If you happen to be raising a little hipster (which is totally cool, hipsters are incredible trendsetters) or happen to be one yourself, we believe you’ll enjoy these designs as much as we do.

Inside Belmond Hotel Caruso Amalfi

Once I read that if the landscape of human emotion was to exist in a country, it would be Italy. And I honestly couldn’t agree more. I have been overlooking the breath-taking view of a magical suite, onto the unreal scenery that is the Amalfi coast. I am left speechless, and not just today. But in the ‘right here and right now’ of every time I visit the Italian coast. And get lost in admiring it in all its beauty. And felt the implacable urge share this sublimity with others. So here’s my homage and reportage for today: Inside the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello.
