Grand time

The Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel from Jaeger-LeCoultre, is the watchmaker’s first multi-axis tourbillon with a constant-force mechanism, Westminster chime and perpetual calendar. The timepiece is available in a case of white gold, with a blue guilloché enamel or silver grained dial and is the result of 186 years of fine watchmaking expertise and a spirit of innovation.

Swanky sneakers

Corneliani’s new and perky range of Made in Italy sneakers collection called Athletic Glance combines two worlds: The nature of sportswear innovation, and Italian craftsmanship. These shoes are crafted in leathers and highly performing technical materials, with an extremely light sole ensuring comfort and cushioning on any type of ground.

The Bergere armchair from Cipriani Homood—based in Pisa, Italy, the design firm specialises in luxury furniture that merges contemporary style with traditional handcrafting techniques—is made of velvet, and has a woven texture. True to its name and French origin, the chair comes with an upholstered back, and armrests on upholstered frames.

The all new Émonda ALR range from Trek Bicycles can be a great starting point for new riders, while also being fully capable of serious competitive rides. Its carbon frame-like looks, light weight, and responsive and balanced character is because of Trek’s Invisible Weld Technology, which increases the surface area of the frame, adding to strength and reducing weight.
