Fashion week is in full swing and the Messika Man knows the IT places to see and be seen at. He is smart, confident and elegant, with pieces that reflect understated luxury.
The strength of titanium meets the power of the diamond. Messika expanded its iconic Move collection for men and has created rings, bangles, pendants and cufflinks in titanium, weighing no more than a few grams.
The fluidity of the diamond is naturally a part of the creation integrated as three floating final touches, which can be worn every day by the modern man.
The simple titanium bangle is set with three moving diamonds and finished with coated edges. The elegance of these bangles is combined with the fundamental values of the Messika brand: comfort, lightness and movement. These ultra-lightweight pieces can easily be worn with a watch or stacked together.
To commemorate the UAE’s first manned mission to space, Montegrappa has launched a unique fountain pen commissioned for The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre, celebrating Hazzaa AlMansoori, the first Emirati Astronaut in space.
The renowned Emirati Astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori will be launched to the International Space Station, making him the first Emirati in space. The project is being managed and executed by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). MBRSC is also responsible for the development of various projects including the UAE Astronaut Programme and the development of the Mars 2117 vision to build a human colony on Mars.
After undergoing rigorous training to prepare for this mission, Hazzaa AlMansoori was selected from thousands of applicants to become the UAE’s first astronaut in space, taking a leap into the future, whilst writing a new chapter in history of the UAE. Hazzaa AlMansoori will be accompanied by his backup Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi.
To celebrate this historic event, Montegrappa crafted a unique fountain pen and dedicated it to the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). The pen, shaped in the form of a rocket, features the UAE flag on the barrel, the logo of MBRSC on the cap and a portrait of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on a solid gold nib. The pen was presented to Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre for display to commemorate this special event, after being on display at the Montegrappa boutique in the UAE throughout the month of July 2019.
“This unique pen was made to celebrate this historic feat and is a symbolic representation of this mission and the forward thinking vision of the leaders of this country.” said Charles Nahhas, Montegrappa’s Middle East Distributor. He continued, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to present this unique writing instrument on this momentous occasion.”
While this unique pen is not for sale, Montegrappa has issued a limited edition of 53 pens in solid 18k gold and titanium commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing (1969 – 2019), and 473 pens in resin and sterling silver. The Moon Landing Collection is based on the design of the Saturn V rocket which carried the original 1969 Apollo 11 mission, and is presented in an enclosure in the form of an Apollo 11 capsule in a special collector’s display case.
The Longchamp man is very particular and he likes his style to reflect his personality. He is cosmopolitan and is mainly inspired by cities like Paris, London and New York. His multifaceted personality leads him to embrace styles and colors that express his individuality.
To meet the needs of this man who seeks luxurious, high-tech materials, has his own distinct style and possesses a traveler’s soul, Longchamp explores two themes for Fall-Winter 2019, using clearly defined color codes for each of them.
The Camouflage line evokes an urban military spirit and includes a belt bag, backpack and a weekender. It features an all-over camo motif printed on a lightweight, high-tech fabric, allowing the urban man to blend into metropolitan jungles in modern style. The finishing touch: the new LGP signature logo printed on the bags, offering a graphic twist.
The always very contemporary Moonshot 271 line is available in handbag, backpack and travel bag. In the first of two versions, the two-tone neoprene canvas in neon and khaki creates a futuristic look and showcases the contrasting colors. The second version features a touch of eccentricity. The camouflage canvas is covered with a fabric mesh which accentuates its urban military style.
To celebrate 50 years since the NASA Apollo space mission landed the first man on the moon, S.T. Dupont has created a limited edition, hand-carved Apollo 11 Lunar Module on the Moon lighter. Only eight hand-crafted lighters encrusted with diamonds, with a gold and silver finishing housing a USB containing genuine moon dust powder will be available.
Baldinini, the Italian luxury footwear and accessories brand, operating under Mario Bologna Trading (LLC) in UAE, releases its Men’s Footwear Spring/Summer 2019 collection as a tribute to exceptional masculine taste. It reinterprets classic styles that have made history with the brand, updating them with new lines, unusual textures and exclusive details.
This collection is done with a unique combination of determination, modernity and casual Italian style, where artisan workmanship, elegance and high quality are orchestrated with precise production techniques and great attention for detail. Thus, the classic lace-up shoe is renewed by Baldinini and enhanced by an effortless chic mood. The harmonious silhouette is combined with a taste for refined, impeccable, meticulous experimentation and precision to make them accessories that express savoir faire.
They are perfect for a new gentleman who seeks a cool touch. Besides the more classic style, Baldinini also presents a lace-up shoe in which the treated leather upper has a vintage look and the slip-lasting technique adds extra comfort and softness to the fit. For men who prefer a more casual approach, the brown brushed crust leather lace-up is ideal: great attention is paid to the chromatic nuances that delicately blend to create a stunning chiaroscuro effect.
Baldinini’s recognizable stylistic language continues to evolve and is effectively expressed in the iconic slipon shoe, with which it explores endless versions of the woven leather pattern in shades of brown and black that is combined with a sportier approach thanks to the two-tone rubber sole.
Brilliant, strong colors accompany the new driving loafer with tubular construction: ultra-light and with a cool construction, it becomes a timeless iconic shoe that plays with classic details such as the silver-plated bit. Soft suede is used inside and out – it also lines the shoe for extra comfort – and its palette of unusual, bright colors make a striking style statement.
Another casual sports shoe with a magical combination of high-tech elements and trendy style is the new technical fabric sneaker with evident logo on the side of the shoe and ultra-light rubber sole.
A desire for leisure time takes shape in the unusual sandal where leather is paired up with technical fabric and the rubber sole ensures utmost lightness, contributing to create the image of the collection.
Discover the latest Baldinini Men’s collection at Baldinini boutiques in Dubai Mall, Wafi Mall, Burjuman, Outlet Village and Outlet Mall, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
In 2013, the Admiral collection welcomed a new line to the family- the Admiral AC-One. Keeping in mind the key design codes of the Admiral Collection, the lines of the iconic dodecagonal-shaped case was reworked to become more rounded, and angles less prominent. Taking into consideration the size and weight of the 45mm diameter-case of the AC-One 45, titanium became the material of choice for this contemporary reinterpretation. Designed as a robust timepiece to complement luxury offshore boating, the Admiral AC-One 45 is even sportier, bolder and pushes the boundaries of creativity a step further.
This year, Corum presents the AC-One 45 Openwork Automatic, which introduces an exquisitely crafted skeletonized dial. The movement fitted within the AC-One Openwork Automatic is the caliber CO 297, a new movement that was developed by Corum in-house specifically for this model. The bridges visible on the dial side were specially designed to be in harmony with the dodecagonal-shaped case, as well as the silhouettes of the nautical pennants. A sub-dial displaying small seconds is at the 9 o’clock position, while the power reserve indicator sits at 3 o’clock.
Like the AC-One 45 Squelette that was released in 2014, the ingenious architecture of the AC-One 45 Openwork Automatic juxtaposes this otherwise hefty timepiece with a touch of lightness and refinement. Unlike the Squelette which features a completely skeletonized double-date disks, Corum makes use of bolder and cleaner-cut lines to give a more robust and athletic feel to the Openwork Automatic.
The AC-One 45 Openwork Automatic is presented in two variants. The first, with a case crafted in grade 5 Titanium to add lightness of the overall design, and at the same time evoke a futuristic vibe. The second variation pairs contrasting rose gold with black PVD-coated titanium as the case material, giving the watch a bolder and sportier feel. The back of the movement is visible through the screwed-in open back bronze cover with anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Both timepieces offer water resistance up to 100 meters, while the movement has a power reserve of 42 hours.
A chronograph wristwatch at the pinnacle of precision, the DEFY El Primero 21 is equipped with a revolutionary movement that marks the 21st century chapter of the El Primero chronograph calibre’s enduring legacy, once again raising the bar in performance in a uniquely styled package. Now, the futuristic chronograph comes in its most outstanding iteration to date: DEFY El Primero 21 Carbon.
A high-performance, unprecedented calibre such as the El Primero 21 deserves a resolutely contemporary design, while remaining faithful to the Zenith El Primero heritage of boundary-pushing precision. Featuring a combination of straight lines and angles, the geometric facets of the case perfectly complement the voluminous architecture of the openworked movement. The highest frequency chronograph ever to be serially produced now comes in a lightweight and robust carbon fibre case.
Precision in Futuristic Form
There’s something truly inimitable about carbon fibre. The high-tech composite material is lightweight yet extremely durable. It makes a statement while remaining subdued. It plays with light and reveals a unique visual effect caused by the alternating layers of carbon fibres that are randomly arranged, making each case essentially unique. Its captivating visual effect is stealthy and edgy at once, giving the material a versatile and easily wearable aspect. And with this version of the DEFY El Primero 21, it’s not just the faceted case and round bezel that are forged from carbon, but also the crown and chronograph pushers.
Completing the ergonomics of the DEFY El Primero 21 Carbon is a choice of two straps: a black textured rubber strap, and a special rubber strap with a carbon effect for the ultimate urbanite look.
Edgier Look for an Unrivaled Function
With a case as otherworldly as carbon, it’s only natural that the movement and dial are made to match its mysterious allure. For the first time in the DEFY El Primero 21, the cutting-edge 1/100 second chronograph calibre operating at a phenomenal and unrivaled rate of 360’000 vibrations per hour (50 Hz) is given a deep black treatment, allowing the gleaming edges of the innovatory skeleton movement to shine through the dark. The open dial is also black, yet remains effortlessly legible with its contrasting white markings. The hour, minute and constant seconds hands, like the applied hour markers, are faceted with a dark ruthenium coating and filled with black SuperLuminova that gives off a subtle glow in the dark. Keeping the emphasis on its unrivaled high-speed chronograph function, the central 1/100 second hand and seconds and minutes totalisers have blackened hands with bright red tips. A look that embodies Zenith’s neo-futuristic, architectural design ethos to create the timepieces of tomorrow for the style-conscious watch aficionados of today.
ZENITH: the future of Swiss watchmaking
Since 1865, Zenith has been guided by authenticity, daring and passion in pushing the boundaries of excellence, precision and innovation. Soon after its founding in le Locle by visionary watchmaker Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith gained recognition for the precision of its chronometers, which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in just over a century and a half of existence: an absolute record. Famed for its legendary 1969 El Primero calibre enabling short-time measurement accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second, Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations. Today, Zenith offers new and fascinating vistas, including 1/100th of a second timing with the Defy El Primero 21. Energised by newly reinforced ties with a proud tradition of dynamic, avant-garde thinking, Zenith is writing its future… and the future of Swiss watchmaking.
