This year’s BaselWorld was full of surprises, some positive and most not so much!!! One of the brands that really shined all along , in my opinion was MBandF with their collaboration with BlackBadger.During Baselworld the brand unveiled a new series of ‘Performance Art’ pieces – and the star of this new series is the unclassifiable, undefinable designer James Thompson, aka ‘Black Badger’. Among other talents, James has developed the rare know-how to literally sculpt solid light, in the form of high-efficiency luminescent material. And to double the fun, for this new series James has reinterpreted not just one, but two of the Machines!
Good Day everyone!!! You are in for a superb treat today as I take you into the world of racing and Polo combined with ultra high end watchmaking! I am talking feather light Richard Mille watches, best in class Polo player Pablo Macdonough and one of the best circuits worldwide in Yas Marina Abu Dhabi.
This weekend was quiet exceptional for me as I went on a professional track for the first time in my life!!! and I was accompanied by two great companions along the way: an Audi R8 V10 Plus just released and a stunning Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Skeleton in Titanium!!
Good day peeps, I know you have been all waiting for the full Nepal adventure story, so here it is. It all started on February 26th 2016, on a fine Friday morning more precisely 8:50 am local time when my flight to Kathmandu took off from Dubai.
Hello my dear friends!!!! I have great news and a new adventure to share with you today..As you all probably know, I climbed Kilimanjaro last year with few of my friends for charity and it was my first real climb ever!! Since then, I have had this adrenaline rush in my body itching me to repeat it again; and so I decided to take on another mountain this time in Nepal, getting closer to Everest in the Himalayas and heading to the Annapurna Base Camp at 4,130m!!!!
When I say Parmigiani, what is the first thing that comes to your mind!…. Cheese right!!! 🙂 I know, we all have these first misleading impressions, even the brand knows that. But what you don’t know is Parmigiani Fleurier Manufacture is a company with many hidden talents and expertise the entire watchmaking industry is benefiting from – just under the radar!
Finally back home to my lovely Dubai after a long break in Switzerland. I have got a lot of stories to share with you among the ones I wrote while I am there, so let’s do it! Of course, the first highlight of my trip was being invited to attend the glamorous SIHH 2016 fair in Geneva organised by the Richemont Group; so let me share with you my experience during those 5 days.
Tuesday Afternoon – although a very packed day during SIHH presentations, I had the chance to sit down with Mr Jens Koch, MD of MontBlanc International to talk a little bit about the brand strategy for the upcoming years and his views of the strength of MontBlanc in the current market.
