HYBRID<br />

Leader in the delivery of sustainable<br />

luxury mobility accelerates its<br />

journey towards electrification.<br />

Bentley to offer electrified variants<br />

of all models by 2023.<br />

Technologically advanced Bentayga<br />

has WLTP All Electric range of 39<br />

km/24.23 miles (NEDC - 51km/31.7<br />

miles).<br />

Most efficient Bentley ever returns<br />

CO2 emissions of just 79 g/<br />

km.<br />

Pioneering model offers serene<br />

and unrestricted driving experience.<br />

Exquisite, handcrafted SUV from<br />

£133,100, €141,100 or $160,000.<br />



(Crewe, 01 October 2019) Bentley<br />

has confirmed that first deliveries<br />

of the Bentayga Hybrid SUV have<br />

now taken place, marking a significant<br />

milestone for the company as<br />

it leads the push towards the delivery<br />

of sustainable luxury mobility.<br />

As Bentley celebrates its centenary<br />

year, the pioneering Bentayga Hybrid<br />

is blazing the trail for the British<br />

brand’s journey into the next<br />

100 years. <strong>The</strong> Bentayga Hybrid is<br />

not only the world’s first true luxury<br />

plug-in hybrid, but also the company’s<br />

most efficient model ever.<br />

Bentley’s focus on providing sustainable<br />

luxury mobility has seen<br />

it reprioritize its model plan to accelerate<br />

its journey towards electrification<br />

with the aim of offering<br />

a hybrid or electric variant of all<br />

models by 2023. <strong>The</strong> marque is targeting<br />

the introduction of the first<br />

ever fully electric Bentley by 2025.<br />

Bentley’s first plug-in hybrid model<br />

offers a best-of-both-worlds experience,<br />

combining a powerful new,<br />

3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol<br />

engine with an advanced electric<br />

motor that delivers an instantaneous<br />

response.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bentayga Hybrid utilises future-focused<br />

technology to provide<br />

a unique, serenely quiet and luxurious<br />

driving experience. It is also the<br />

only plug-in hybrid vehicle in the<br />

world with 64 standard colours and<br />

unlimited bespoke options.<br />

Peter Bosch, Bentley’s Member of<br />

the Board for Manufacturing, commented:<br />

“<strong>The</strong> delivery of the first<br />

Bentayga Hybrid models is an historic<br />

moment for Bentley, taking<br />

us a step closer to the roll-out of<br />

truly sustainable luxury mobility<br />

solutions. As we prepare for the<br />

next 100 years, we are investing<br />

significantly in new initiatives that<br />

reinforce our commitment to sustainability,<br />

as demonstrated by the<br />

visionary all-electric Bentley EXP<br />

100 GT concept.” <strong>The</strong> Bentayga<br />

Hybrid represents a new chapter<br />

for Bentley, adopting new working<br />

practices, test procedures and<br />

specialist training which over 3,000<br />

14<br />

Bentley colleagues have undertaken.<br />

Bentley’s expanding headquarters<br />

in Crewe has also evolved,<br />

with infrastructure changes that<br />

include the addition of more than<br />

50 charging points throughout the<br />

site.<br />

Bentayga Hybrid – Serenity<br />

Through Technology<br />

Handcrafted in Crewe, England the<br />

Bentayga Hybrid is sculpted with<br />

an elegant, timeless execution that<br />

perfectly balances athleticism with<br />

confidence. <strong>The</strong> world’s most luxurious<br />

SUV also has the world’s<br />

finest automotive cabin, which is<br />

the epitome of modern British design<br />

and available with a range of<br />

unique personalisation options. Effortless<br />

performance and the same<br />

sure-footed, all-wheel drive ability

ensure a unique driving experience<br />

that combines the serenity of silent<br />

motoring with supreme levels<br />

of comfort and performance to<br />

deliver the ultimate grand touring<br />

experience.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bentayga Hybrid’s efficient E<br />

Motor acts as both an electric motor<br />

and a power generator. Offering<br />

94 kW peak power and 400 Nm<br />

of torque, it allows swift and silent<br />

acceleration from stationary. <strong>The</strong><br />

system provides instant torque response<br />

by eliminating engine turbo<br />

lag, while a state-of-the-art, high<br />

voltage battery is capable of recharging<br />

in just 2.5 hours.<br />

<strong>The</strong> E Motor is combined with a<br />

new 3.0-litre, turbocharged V6<br />

petrol engine. <strong>The</strong> result is a seam-<br />

less driving experience that offers<br />

700 Nm of combined torque, a top<br />

speed of 254 km/h (<strong>15</strong>8 mph) and 0<br />

to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds (0-60<br />

mph in 5.2 seconds).<br />

With a total driving range of 747 km<br />

(464 miles) and a WLTP Equivalent<br />

All Electric range of 39 km/24.23<br />

miles (NEDC Electric Range of<br />

51km/31.7 miles) on a single charge,<br />

the Hybrid adds a new dimension<br />

to the existing range of Bentayga<br />

models. Returning CO2 emissions<br />

of just 79 g/km (WLTP – weighted,<br />

combined), and 3.5 l/100km (80.7<br />

mpg) on the WLTP weighted, combined<br />

cycle, it is Bentley’s most efficient<br />

model to date.<br />

<strong>The</strong> latest version of Bentley’s exquisitely<br />

appointed SUV has three<br />

hybrid drive modes. In EV Drive<br />

mode, it is driven only with energy<br />

supplied from the battery to the<br />

wheels via the electric motor. In<br />

Hybrid Mode the car uses information<br />

from the navigation system to<br />

intelligently optimise power usage<br />

from the battery and the petrol engine,<br />

giving maximum efficiency<br />

and range. In Hold mode the use of<br />

engine and electric power is balanced<br />

to maintain electric range<br />

for later use – for example on arriving<br />

in a city. In all modes energy<br />

is recovered to the battery through<br />

regeneration during deceleration.<br />

Leading <strong>The</strong> Way In Sustainable<br />

<strong>Luxury</strong> Mobility<br />

Whether it be through the introduction<br />

of alternative powertrain<br />

technologies, the use of sustainable<br />

materials and practices, or its<br />

award-winning work reducing the<br />

environmental impact of its factory,<br />

Bentley is focused on delivering<br />

sustainable luxury mobility.<br />

Bentley is constantly striving to<br />

develop new initiatives to enhance<br />

this commitment, and earlier this<br />

year installed the UK’s largest ever<br />

solar car port at its factory headquarters<br />

in Crewe - in the company’s<br />

centenary year, all electricity<br />

used to manufacture every Bentley<br />

is now solar or certified green.<br />

Al Bait<br />

Sharjah<br />

How to spend<br />

AED 250,000 / USD $68,000<br />

on a weekend in Sharjah<br />

Some folk in the UAE spend<br />

the entirety of their weekends<br />

holed up in a cosy nook at<br />

home, recovering from the week’s<br />

worth of hustle, while others<br />

splash out like there’s no tomorrow.<br />

And while Dubai has long<br />

since been the epicentre of thingsto-do,<br />

its northern counter-Emirate,<br />

Sharjah, is rising the ranks on<br />

luxury recreation in a big and bold<br />

way.<br />

Having opened its traditional doors<br />

to the public at the end of 2018,<br />

Al Bait Sharjah, a GHM and <strong>The</strong><br />

Leading Hotels of the World property,<br />

is a cornerstone of Arabian<br />

splendour, and has seen a bevy of<br />

luxury guests indulge in its homey<br />

privacy since its opening. Located<br />

in the Heart of Sharjah, the hotel’s<br />

ancient architecture has been delicately<br />

preserved, paying homage<br />

to its heritage while servicing the<br />

needs of a discerning 21st century<br />

traveler. All the indulgent mod<br />

cons sit alongside time-honoured<br />

antiquities giving you a blended<br />

experience of two worlds coming<br />

effortlessly together.<br />

Now, it might not seem like the<br />

most obvious thing to do a twoday<br />

break in Sharjah, but luxury<br />

travelers in the know are flocking<br />

to one of the only truly Emirati experiences,<br />

steeped in real tradition<br />

and history. You don’t have to be a<br />

multi-millionaire to lap up all that<br />

Al Bait has to offer, but if you want<br />

the most exclusive experience a<br />

cool AED250,000 (USD$68,063.75)<br />

will see you through this package<br />

perfectly – which is the equivalent<br />

of 1.5kg in gold.<br />


<strong>The</strong> weekend begins by arriving in<br />

style on a luxury yacht with exclusive<br />

welcome amenities featuring<br />

24k edible gold – a fitting first<br />

impression. From the dock, a 1967<br />

Mercedes Pullman – one of only<br />

304 in the world – will transfer you<br />

directly to the hotel.<br />

Once at the resort you’ll be ushered<br />

to your home away from<br />

home. A standard room – as deluxe<br />

as it is, doesn’t compare to the entire,<br />

fully privatized Bait Al Midfa<br />

Heritage House you’ll be occupying<br />

during your stay.<br />

<strong>The</strong> suite will be strewn with flower<br />

decorations on a scale of a floral<br />

atelier and utterly personalized every<br />

which way you turn. From gold<br />

embroidered and initialed wardrobes<br />

and slippers, to a personalized<br />

engraved jewelry set from the<br />

renowned local designer in <strong>The</strong><br />

Jewellery Shop located within the<br />

resort. While enjoying your splendor,<br />

you’ll be served with <strong>The</strong> Al<br />

Bait Tray for Two – complete with<br />

a gold twist, including one of the<br />

most expensive desserts in the<br />

world adorned in gold and jewels,<br />

replete with the most expensive<br />

organic ingredients – but for now,<br />

the secret of what it is exactly,<br />

remains tight lipped.<br />

You’ll be lathered in a private<br />

exotic couple’s spa retreat within<br />

your already secluded Heritage<br />

House. Depending on your preference<br />

(and the weather), you have<br />

the choice of the treatment outdoors<br />

or in one of the atmospheric<br />

rooms in the spa.<br />

Floating from your spa experience,<br />

the day ends with you cozying up<br />

under the stars watching a suitably<br />

romantic film in an outdoor<br />

cinema experience in the privacy<br />

of the Heritage Courtyard with –<br />

of course – gold popcorn or a full<br />

on gastronomic affair should you<br />

so wish.<br />


<strong>The</strong> next morning will find<br />

you stirring from your specially<br />

imported AED80,795<br />

(USD$22,000 mattress<br />

– which boasts two extra<br />

hours of sleep as opposed<br />

to a normal bed – to a curated<br />

breakfast served out<br />

at sea on a yacht. Back on<br />

land, you’ll be escorted to<br />

a private calligraphy class<br />

with (again) gold back at the<br />

resort.<br />

Having mastered the art of<br />

calligraphy, you can wander<br />

past the only surviving<br />

hundred year-old round<br />

windtower in the region, to<br />

a private lunch held in the<br />

heart of the kitchen at Al<br />

Bait Sharjah, where you’ll<br />

interact with the Chef and<br />

see his deft skills at play,<br />

as your dish comes to life.<br />

<strong>The</strong> afternoon will find you<br />

whisked off to have a fitting<br />

for a tailor-made abaya<br />

and kandoora, the female<br />

and male tradition dress,<br />

by a famous Arab fashion<br />

designer, which will then<br />

be shipped anywhere you’d<br />

like, once it’s ready.<br />

<strong>The</strong> day will draw to a close<br />

with a curated dinner picnic<br />

on a private island in Sharjah<br />

with a private musician<br />

and butler service while you<br />

watch the sun dip into the<br />

horizon. Naturally, a royal<br />

bathing ceremony will greet<br />

you upon your return to the<br />

resort.<br />

Your day of departure<br />

will begin with a spiritual<br />

awakening ceremony at a<br />

private pool with a spot of<br />

yoga, smoothly taking you<br />

to a romantic breakfast in<br />

the privacy of the Heritage<br />

House. All you’ll need to do<br />

is rest and relax in the lead<br />

up to your departure, upon<br />

which a custom farewell<br />

gift from Al Bait Sharjah will<br />

be given as a token of your<br />

unique stay.<br />

roatia Sotheby's <strong>International</strong> Realty is a proud<br />

part of Sotheby's <strong>International</strong> Realty network that<br />

successfully operates in Croatia with over 300 luxury<br />

real estate and investment projects in its portfolio.<br />

Being surrounded by high class and exquisitely<br />

designed luxury villas is a demanding job. One<br />

must always be on top of all the global trends and<br />

acquire only the best property that Croatia offers.<br />

Besides the largest luxury portfolio in Croatia, the<br />

agency prides with expertise, professionalism, market<br />

knowledge, following global trends, as well as a wide<br />

range of services that guarantee their customers<br />

exceptional service, with the highest level of privacy.<br />

<strong>The</strong> real estate trends are constantly changing and<br />

the markets are expanding so it is important to have<br />

a reliable partner in the process of buying a second<br />

home or investing in a project.<br />

Croatian market has experienced a growth in client<br />

interest over the past two years and I would say it<br />

is the right time for property investors and homebuyers.<br />

In a range of exquisite properties and market<br />

conditions, we can safely say that more and more<br />

people are competing to grab their investment<br />

opportunity in a touristic country such as Croatia.<br />

Especially popular are the UNESCO cities (Opatija,<br />

Split, Dubrovnik) and the islands.<br />

One of our points of pride is a full-range service<br />

that enables our clients to request and examine<br />

a full evaluation of a wanted property with an<br />

estimated return on investment if they want to<br />

reuse it for touristic purposes. Many clients decide<br />

to buy a property and use it as a second home<br />

for 6 months and rent it for other 6 months. Our<br />

brand is the place to go for all such investors since<br />

we can offer all of these required services in one<br />

place - says Croatia Sotheby's <strong>International</strong> Realty<br />

Director Marko Pažanin.<br />





RESORT & SPA<br />



Embrace splendor living in your exclusive seaside<br />

oasis. Rise above the stunning horizon,<br />

nest within the lush foliage or find serenity<br />

in your own haven with Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort<br />

& Spa’s Villa Collections, designed to indulge<br />

guests with distinct holiday experiences.<br />

Whether looking for that much-deserved getaway<br />

with a partner, quality time with loved ones or<br />

simply to get away from the urban bustle with a<br />

solo retreat, the resort’s Villa Collections afford<br />

discerning guests with the idyllic seaside luxury<br />

home.<br />

Treetop Collection<br />

Consisting of the unique Treehouse Villa and Loft<br />

Villa, the Treetop Collection is located atop the<br />

hills with unobstructed panoramic sea and sunset<br />

views.<br />

With its rustic romantic appeal, the Treehouse<br />

Villa is idyllic for couples on a getaway. Located<br />

at the resort’s highest vantage point amidst lush<br />

hills, these two-level villas offer majestic ocean<br />

views from every angle – through the master bedroom<br />

on the first level with floor-to-ceiling glass<br />

windows, and the living area on the upper level<br />

that stretch out to an al fresco deck with a Jacuzzi.<br />

Poolside Collection<br />

For memorable vacations with loved ones, the<br />

Poolside Collection provides blissful accommoda-<br />


tions for families. With villas dotting the vicinity of<br />

the main freeform pool, garden and private beach,<br />

these accommodations paint a perfect holiday to<br />

create loving memories with the people you hold<br />

dearest.<br />

Whether on holiday with family or friends, the<br />

One- and Two-Bedroom Pool Villas have well-appointed<br />

indoor and outdoor space that perfectly<br />

cater to families or a small group. Bungalow in style<br />

with local design accents and interiors, akin to the<br />

famed Filipino bahay kubo (nipa hut), these pool<br />

villas have an outdoor infinity pool, garden and<br />

gazebo for intimate gatherings, and merely steps<br />

away from the resort’s main pool and the exclusive<br />

Banyugan beach.<br />

Oceanview Sanctuary Collection<br />

Nestled on the clifftop amongst a sea of foliage, the<br />

Oceanview Sanctuary Collection villas afford exquisite<br />

seascape views, with convenient access to<br />

the resort’s ultimate wellness villa – CHI, <strong>The</strong> Spa.<br />

<strong>The</strong> stunning Ocean Villa and the one of a kind<br />

Beach Villa present themselves as the idyllic choices<br />

for families or groups. Set at the top of a cliff, the<br />

two-bedroom Ocean Villa has unparalleled views of<br />

the resort’s private Banyugan Beach, unobstructed<br />

by anything apart from the villa’s tropical flora<br />

and fauna. From above, the Ocean Villa lets guests<br />

watch the world go by at an elevated vantage, with<br />

sights of passing paraws (local outrigger boats)<br />

with endless ocean blues and sunset views in the<br />

distance.<br />

<strong>The</strong> iconic Two-Bedroom Beach Villa is the only<br />

villa that sits right on the shores, with its own direct<br />

access to Banyugan Beach, making it one of<br />

the most coveted villas at the resort. Guests may<br />

walk out to the lanai, enjoy a relaxing dip in the villa’s<br />

infinity pool, with the beach a few steps away.<br />

Where the other villas are pictures of peaceful retreats,<br />

the Presidential Villa resembles an exclusive<br />

hideaway almost like a private resort, hidden away<br />

in an area that overlooks the stunning sea. <strong>The</strong><br />

Presidential Villa is a combination of three individual<br />

villas set in lush and expansive outdoor spaces<br />

– a common villa for the living and dining areas, a<br />

master bedroom and a guest room, surrounding a<br />

Cliffside infinity pool that looks out to the sea and<br />

the horizon. <strong>The</strong> viewing deck at the top of the garden<br />

features an amazing dining area with stunning<br />

views of the magical Boracay sunsets.<br />

Nossa Senhora e o Menino<br />

Nossa Senhora e o Menino (Madonna and Child) in a<br />

fantastical tropical forest - Our Lady gazes to the heavens<br />

as the fluttering birds gently crown Her. <strong>The</strong> representation<br />

of Madonna and Child, so revered throughout the world,<br />

is expressed here in a unique and different way, a very<br />

contemporary vision of loveliness. <strong>The</strong> immaculate and<br />

precise detail, the poetical conception of the Coronation of<br />

Our Lady, the sparkling eyes of the Child, the shimmering<br />

exotic robe encrusted with a myriad butterflies and jewels,<br />

all combine toward an exquisite expression full of<br />

emotion and joy.<br />

Roberto Custodio’s art transports the viewer into a<br />

fantastical and magical world where we are astonished<br />

by his mastery of collage and the brilliance of<br />

his imagination.

Beneath a large sapphire crystal<br />

dome, an arch supports a half-globe<br />

in shades of grey and blue. It depicts<br />

the continents, the seas and the lights<br />

of the large cities located north of the<br />

equator. On the edge of the planet, a sapphire<br />

ring breaks down the 24 hours of<br />

a day. Transparent between 6 am and 6<br />

pm, a metal treatment has been used to<br />

darken it, indicating the night-time hours.<br />

Together, the hemisphere and ring display<br />

the time in one part of the world, represented in a<br />

highly original way. In the absence of a dedicated hand<br />

or city disc, the time is read geographically in accordance<br />

with the continents.<br />

held in place by screws with polished heads<br />

and chamfered slots.<br />

Watchmaking ergonomics<br />

<strong>The</strong>se finishes are echoed extensively on<br />

the A&S6022 self-winding calibre powering<br />

the Globetrotter Night. Entirely<br />

developed and produced by the<br />

Arnold & Son Manufacture, it has<br />

a nocturnal style thanks to the<br />

widespread use of NAC-type<br />

surface treatments. <strong>The</strong> bridges<br />

are polished and chamfered,<br />

finished with Côtes de<br />

Genève stripes and coloured<br />

grey. <strong>The</strong> skeletonised oscillating<br />

weight is engraved and<br />

treated chemically with ADLC<br />

black and NAC grey to obtain<br />

a two-tone appearance using a<br />

matt straight-grained finish.<br />

Beyond these aesthetic details, what<br />

makes the A&S6022 calibre special is<br />

its easy setting, thanks to a three-position<br />

crown. <strong>The</strong> first winds the movement.<br />

<strong>The</strong> second adjusts the local time<br />

hand by one-hour jumps either clockwise<br />

or anti-clockwise. <strong>The</strong> third regulates the<br />

hours and minutes in addition to the planet’s<br />

rotation. When travelling to a different<br />

time zone, the second position enables the<br />

wearer to change local time while keeping<br />

world time synchronised.<br />

In the interests of fairness, Arnold & Son can also provide<br />

a “southern hemisphere” version of its Globetrotter<br />

Night on request at the same price.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Earth by night<br />

<strong>The</strong> Globetrotter Night offers a realistic and meticulously<br />

rendered interpretation of a three-dimensional<br />

map enclosed in a 45 mm steel case. Chemical engraving<br />

has been used on the half-globe to outline the<br />

continents. <strong>The</strong> raised parts have undergone a deepgrey<br />

galvanic treatment before being hand-lacquered<br />

in a black-grey hue, while the oceans are lacquered<br />

in grey-blue. Finally, the city lights twinkling in the<br />

northern hemisphere are represented by hand-applied<br />

silver sparkles.<br />

<strong>The</strong> decorative touches and finishes adorning the Globetrotter<br />

Night extend beyond the Earth itself. <strong>The</strong><br />

chapter ring is circular satin-brushed and the hands,<br />

despite being mostly concealed beneath the halfglobe,<br />

are polished and accentuated by red lacquered<br />

tips. <strong>The</strong> large double-foot bridge supporting the halfglobe<br />

is a spectacular feature in itself that lends structure<br />

to the overall appearance of this timepiece. It is<br />

circular satin-brushed and chamfered by hand and<br />

Your time is precious – if you’re going to invest time<br />

in something, you want to come out with a winning<br />

result. So, if you’re thinking about visiting a tailor for<br />

the first time, it’s great to know ahead of time what<br />

to expect.<br />

So here’s what to ask your tailor – so you walk away<br />

with the suit that you really want.<br />

1. Which colours suit me?<br />

Because it’s not just about finding a colour you like.<br />

You may love magnolia and it may look great on your<br />

walls, but it might not be such a good match for your<br />

skin tone.<br />

Plus, it isn’t just a matter of being dark skinned or<br />

light skinned or somewhere in between. Everyone<br />

has an undertone to their skin, too.<br />

Generally, those with a light complexion should<br />

avoid grey suits as they can be draining. Those with<br />

olive toned or darker skin have a little more flexibility<br />

when it comes to suitable hues. However, it’s always<br />

advised to avoid tone-on-tone looks. Just like<br />

pastel shades wash out paler skin, brown won’t provide<br />

enough contrast for medium skin tones.<br />

Your tailor will offer a professional colour consultation<br />

to guide you when selecting the final fabric.<br />

2. And what about pattern?<br />

A good tailor will only suggest patterns to complement<br />

or enhance your size and shape.<br />

Shorter guys can look to pinstripes, which help to<br />

elongate the frame. If you’re larger or oval shaped,<br />

it’s best to stay away from unflattering horizontal<br />

38<br />

stripes. <strong>The</strong> windowpane check looks smart and stylish<br />

on most, whilst also helping extra-slim frames look<br />

larger.<br />

If it’s your very first suit, we’d recommend starting<br />

classic in a universally flattering colour such as navy.<br />

As your tailored arsenal grows, you can begin to experiment<br />

with herringbone or chalk stripes for a confident<br />

stance.<br />

3. Which style works for my body shape?<br />

This question is imperative so you can walk out of your<br />

tailors feeling confident in a suit you love – that’s suited<br />

to your individual height and size.<br />

If you’re on the shorter side, look to a smaller trouser

eak that can help you look a little bit taller. Narrow<br />

shoulders? Peak lapels can help broaden this area.<br />

For tall men, make sure the leg length and sleeves are<br />

long enough so it’s clear the suit was professionally tailored<br />

and not bought off the rack. And while the double-breasted<br />

blazer works well on certain body frames,<br />

larger men should usually stick to single-breasted designs<br />

for a slimmer take.<br />

4. And how can I make sure my suit stands out from the<br />

crowd?<br />

Your final question… and one that means your tailor is<br />

intent on creating the very best suit around. Of course,<br />

the cut, fit and the quality of fabrics used all have a<br />

part to play in giving your new suit the ‘wow’ factor.<br />

You’re looking for the perfect blend of your personal<br />

style preferences with something that will stand the<br />

test of time.<br />

Those with a sartorial eye know that it’s all in the details.<br />

Nothing gives away bad quality like poor stitching,<br />

for instance. Remember, there’s a deep heritage<br />

to tailoring so ask where your tailor trained in his<br />

craft and the background of the company – if you hear<br />

words like ‘Mayfair’ then you know you’re joining distinguished<br />

clientele.<br />

So now it’s time to meet your tailor, armed with these<br />

four key questions that are going to result in a superlative<br />

suit.<br />

0-400-0 KM/H WORLD RECORD<br />


At Råda military airfield deep in<br />

the forests of Sweden, Koenigsegg<br />

has set a new 0-400-0 km/h world<br />

record when a Koenigsegg Regera<br />

completed the run in 31.49 seconds<br />

on Monday this week. This was 1.8<br />

seconds faster than Koenigsegg’s<br />

previously unbeaten record, set<br />

by the Agera RS in 2017. CEO and<br />

founder Christian von Koenigsegg<br />

believe that the car can perform<br />

even better under the right conditions.<br />

On Monday, September 23rd, a<br />

Koenigsegg Regera accelerated<br />

from 0 to 400 km/h and back to<br />

0 in 31.49 seconds at Råda airfield<br />

close to the town of Lidköping. <strong>The</strong><br />

car was driven by Koenigsegg factory<br />

driver Sonny Persson.<br />

Almost two years ago Koenigsegg<br />

set a new 0-400-0 km/h record using<br />

a production Agera RS in Nevada.<br />

<strong>The</strong> record was a fantastic 33.29<br />

seconds. This time around the Koenigsegg<br />

Regera gets to show what it<br />

is made of.<br />

CEO and Founder Christian von<br />

Koenigsegg comments:<br />

“This was a good opportunity to<br />

showcase the true capability of<br />

the Regera’s one-of-a-kind Direct<br />

Drive transmission. As the Regera<br />

only has one gear we had to make<br />

use of it from standstill to the record<br />

top speed of 403 km/h (or 250<br />

mph) limited by rpm.<br />

<strong>The</strong> car reaches its top speed like<br />

there is no tomorrow, but then<br />

there are no more gears. This actually<br />

suits the philosophy behind<br />

the Regera, which is ‘whoever gets<br />

to 400 km/h first wins’.<br />

Priority has been given to acceleration<br />

and drivability between<br />

0-400 km/h – no more, no less. At<br />

any given time, the Regera can and<br />

will accelerate harder in that speed<br />

range than any other production<br />

car known to us.”<br />

It is worthwhile to note that this<br />

specific car is a fully homologated<br />

production car with its luxurious<br />

fittings and seats still intact. <strong>The</strong><br />

only modifications were a roll cage<br />

and a four-point harness for driver<br />

safety.<br />

<strong>The</strong> conditions were perfect – sunny<br />

with almost no wind. <strong>The</strong> 2000<br />

m long track was a shutdown military<br />

airfield at 70 m elevation. To<br />

have enough runway we used a<br />

stretch of taxiway as a starting area<br />

in order to gain an extra length of<br />

around 300 m to make the runway<br />

long and safe enough.<br />

As this runway is normally unused<br />

and dormant, the surface was not<br />

great for traction. Furthermore,<br />

it was not possible to drive in a<br />

straight line, as some bumps had to<br />

be avoided. Low grip level, swerving<br />

around bumps and general unevenness<br />

naturally takes away from<br />

ideal acceleration times.<br />

Despite challenging track conditions,<br />

the Regera only took 22.87<br />

seconds to accelerate to 400 km/h<br />

over 1613.2 m. Deceleration to a<br />

controlled stop took just 8.62 seconds<br />

over distance of 435.26 m.<br />


<strong>The</strong> total distance used for 0-400-<br />

0 km/h was 2048.46 m. In better<br />

conditions a total length of under<br />

an unbelievable 2000 m should be<br />

fully achievable with the Regera.<br />

Christian von Koenigsegg continues:<br />

“What is really impressive is how<br />

incredible the Regera brakes – 8.62<br />

seconds from 400 km/h to 0 km/h<br />

is just unheard of. It is a testament<br />

to the Regera’s balance, suspension,<br />

aerodynamics and of course<br />

its in-house design and built Koenigsegg<br />

brake callipers. <strong>The</strong> proven<br />

numbers now show the greatness<br />

of the Regera. Having said that, we<br />

know we can improve these already<br />

impressive numbers on a track with<br />

better conditions.”<br />

Performance data for the run was<br />

captured using an AiM EVO5 data<br />

logger and AiM GPS08 alongside a<br />

Racelogic VBOX 3i.<br />

Safety is key for Koenigsegg. Local<br />

paramedics were prepped and<br />

on stand-by, and personnel armed<br />

with fire extinguishers were also on<br />

hand along the airstrip as further<br />

precaution.<br />

Sonny Persson, a long term Koenigsegg<br />

factory driver and former<br />

three-time Swedish Karting Championship<br />

winner, comments, “<strong>The</strong><br />

record is proof of how the Direct<br />

Drive transmission gives the driver<br />

seamless power on command. <strong>The</strong><br />

car is truly a dream to drive. <strong>The</strong><br />

stability during acceleration and<br />

braking is from another world.”<br />

Koenigsegg Regera<br />

<strong>The</strong> Koenigsegg Regera combines<br />

a powerful twin-turbo V8 combustion<br />

engine with three electric<br />

motors and cutting-edge battery<br />

power in a patent-pending powertrain<br />

technology called Koenigsegg<br />

Direct Drive. This revolutionary<br />

technology removes the traditional<br />

gearbox, making the Regera lighter,<br />

more efficient and more fun<br />

to drive than more normal hybrid<br />

solutions..<br />

Discover Montenegro<br />

everybody’s taste and preference. Ranging from relaxed sunset sailing trips with a glass of<br />

champagne in hand, over adrenaline-filled extreme sports that make you challenge your own<br />

possibilities, to taking a walk back down the memory lane and discovering centuries old cities and<br />

their stories – Montenegro has it all and Discover Montenegro team found the best way to combine<br />

business and fun.<br />

Modern tourists look for and expect different things from a visit to a destination such as Montenegro.<br />

Some seek adventure, some just want convenience, some are looking for extreme privacy but all of<br />

them, at one point or another, want to experience the natural beauty of the destination. And that’s<br />

where Discover Montenegro steps in.<br />

Discover Montenegro successfully entangle land, sea and air services into one exclusive unit, giving<br />

Besides offering exceptional helicopter and<br />

in creating memorable, magical celebrations,<br />

events and holidays that will, usually, exceed<br />

expectations.<br />

When it comes to a country so diverse in what<br />

it has to offer, Discover Montenegro stands<br />

firmly by the belief that one of the best ways<br />

to truly breathe in all that Montenegro is - is by<br />

air, and by helicopter specifically.<br />

However, the most popular and sought for<br />

flights are the scenic ones, particularly those<br />

to the North of the country, especially Zabljak<br />

and Tara Canyon, since the North is what<br />

makes this country so visually special. In the<br />

past years Montenegro has been trying to<br />

connect destinations reachable by helicopter<br />

with many signature activities such as Tara<br />

Canyon rafting and visits to 5 national parks<br />

existing in the country, sailing in one and only<br />

Boka Bay fiord or roaming through the sizzling<br />

Budva Riviera.<br />

We are proud of the country, we are increasing<br />

Montenegro’s brand value and prominence by<br />

introducing this destination to a new class of<br />

tourist, and we will continue to work toward<br />

seeing Montenegro become a true year-round<br />

tourist and investment destination.<br />

safe is unlocked by way of a fingerprint or a transponder<br />

chip and the contents rise elegantly upwards<br />

as if touched by magic.<br />

With the ILLUSION, BUBEN&ZORWEG’s passion for<br />

innovative design finds clear expression in many details<br />

- such as the drawers that pivot outwards to one<br />

side to present you with their contents. And if one<br />

would like to swap a favourite watch during the day?<br />

No problem; two or, if prefered, four TIME MOVER®<br />

in the table safe make it easy to store and select the<br />

right choice.<br />

Since its launch, the ILLUSION has held a presence in<br />

the most prestigious and exclusive exhibitions around<br />

the world. This illustrious World Tour will now see<br />

the Masterpiece exhibited in the esteemed SIAR, the<br />

“Salon Internacional de Alta Relojeria” in Mexico City<br />

between the <strong>15</strong>th and the 17th of October. From this<br />

first-class reference point for Haute Horlogerie events<br />

in America, the ILLUSION will then travel to Dusseldorf,<br />

Germany, where the newly created Watchtime<br />

Dusseldorf exhibition will take place from the 25th to<br />

the 27th of October.









London, – Firetree, the UK’s new super-premium<br />

chocolate brand, is delighted to announce the<br />

launch of its single-estate, volcanic chocolate<br />

range, and was pleased to showcase its chocolate to<br />

the guests at the TLN KSA event, with all of them going<br />

home with some in their goodie bags.<br />

Firetree’s superior tasting cocoa beans are sourced<br />

from small, island estates in the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’*<br />

and Madagascar, where the volcanic terroirs produce<br />

cocoa beans with natural flavours that change, develop,<br />

and linger on the palate with a sophisticated taste.<br />

For chocolate connoisseurs, Firetree chocolate is akin<br />

to tasting fine wines, single malt whiskies, champagnes,<br />

Cognacs, and premium, artisan coffees.<br />

On the remote, volcanic islands, the cacao tree or “firetree,”<br />

is immediately identifiable with its flame-hued<br />

pods, bright yellow, orange, and red is symbolic of nature’s<br />

flames. It is in the uniquely rich, porous, volcanic<br />

soil that the firetree thrives and produces beans<br />

of the highest calibre. <strong>The</strong> cocoa beans are expertly<br />

selected by Firetree farmers and masterfully crafted<br />

by skilful chocolatiers to enhance, develop, and bend<br />

the taste and create a smooth, rich chocolate, which<br />

is distinct in its depth and complexity, whilst also being<br />

dairy-free and vegan-friendly. <strong>The</strong> good farming<br />

practices and craft manufacturing process includes<br />

fermentation, the drying process in the tropical sun,<br />

whole bean roasting in the shell to lock in the flavour,<br />

and slow conching.<br />

Firetree works closely and directly with all their farmers<br />

to ensure the best, sustainable agricultural practice.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y take social responsibility seriously to ensure<br />

that the farmers are paid a significant premium,<br />

appropriate to the quality of the beans, necessary to<br />

support their families and invest in their business.<br />

Firetree was founded in 2017 by David Zulman, Martyn<br />

O’Dare, and Aidan Bishop who have unique experience<br />

and pedigree in the chocolate market. Due to the<br />

founders’ wealth of experience in cocoa processing,<br />

chocolate manufacture,<br />

chocolate knowledge and<br />

passion, their ambition<br />

is to create depth to the<br />

tasting experience by educating<br />

their audience,<br />

building their knowledge<br />

and appreciation of chocolate.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y are committed<br />

to producing first-class<br />

tasting chocolate with the<br />

best inherent flavours and<br />

aromas on the market, as<br />

well as bringing a sense<br />

of wonder and discovery<br />

back into chocolate.<br />

Founder and Managing<br />

Director, David Zulman<br />

said: “We are delighted<br />

to be launching our range of exceptional and one-ofa-kind<br />

volcanic, single-estate chocolate. <strong>The</strong> cocoa<br />

beans are from far-flung Pacific islands and Madagascar,<br />

and the chocolate is dairy free and vegan friendly.<br />

We’ve put great effort into redefining, enhancing,<br />

and bending the conventional taste as we know it, and<br />

creating a smooth, rich and unique tasting experience,<br />

which is distinct in its depth and complexity.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> natural range is made up of seven 65g bars and<br />

contains no additives or flavourings. <strong>The</strong>y are dairy<br />

free, suitable for vegans and lactose intolerant people,<br />

as well as being halal and kosher certified. <strong>The</strong> chocolate<br />

is produced in a nut-free factory using only cocoa<br />

beans, cocoa butter, un-refined cane sugar and sunflower<br />

lecithin.<br />

<strong>The</strong> packaging is distinctive with seven unique artworks<br />

by Berlin-based artist Andreas Fischer to differentiate<br />

and represent each of the flavour profiles, for<br />

example plum, citrus, truffle, and honey. Each artwork<br />

represents the taste nuances of each profile using colour,<br />

texture and semiotics.<br />

Property buyers flocking to Montenegro as the government plans to launch<br />

a new citizenship by investment scheme<br />

Buying property in Montenegro, whatever the value, comes<br />

with a one-year residence permit<br />


London, Luštica Bay, the rapidly<br />

expanding Montenegrin marina<br />

town, is reporting a staggering<br />

86.3% in average prices in<br />

the completed Marina Village since<br />

sales started in 2012. Construction<br />

is now focused on Centrale, the<br />

commercial and administrative hub,<br />

and culture centre. Upon completion,<br />

the coastal town will feature<br />

2,000 residences, seven hotels, two<br />

marinas, an 18-hole golf course, and<br />

lifestyle facilities.<br />

<strong>The</strong> €1.1 bn marina development,<br />

which is the first greenfield development<br />

in Montenegro, boasts<br />

some of the lowest square metre<br />

prices in Europe, with average<br />

rental yield in Montenegro reaching<br />

approximately 7.5%. <strong>The</strong>se returns<br />

compete with many European<br />

countries, and are even higher than<br />

Croatia, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and<br />

Greece, and only beaten by Moldova<br />

and Ukraine, neither of which can<br />

compare with Montenegro’s natural,<br />

tourism and economic potential.<br />

According to industry sources,<br />

such as Dream Montenegro (Savills<br />

Associate), the prices of non-prime<br />

homes in the coastal region, have<br />

risen from 1000 to 3000 EUR per sq<br />

m due to the influx of luxury residential<br />

developments.<br />

A key attractive benefit is that buying<br />

property in Montenegro, whatever<br />

the value, comes with a oneyear<br />

residence permit. Additional<br />

financial perks are that the tax system<br />

has become one of the most attractive<br />

in Europe, with a flat-rate<br />

income and 9% corporate tax. Buying<br />

and registering property is easy,<br />

and foreign investors are treated as<br />

equals with Montenegrin citizens.<br />

Furthermore, buying and selling is<br />

always conducted in Euros, so there<br />

is limited foreign exchange risk. Another<br />

alluring factor for some is that<br />

Montenegro is likely to be the next<br />

country to join the EU, although<br />

their currency is already the Euro.<br />

Ahmed Zaki, Head of Sales & Marketing<br />

at Luštica Bay commented<br />

on the impact of this exponential<br />

increase in interest in Montenegro<br />

on the world stage: “<strong>The</strong>re has<br />

been a staggering Y-O-Y increase<br />

in sales at Luštica Bay of more than<br />

100%, with a significant shift in<br />

demand for more expensive units,<br />


and surge in leads of 385%, which<br />

is more than the last three years<br />

combined. We are delighted to have<br />

now sold over 300 units to buyers<br />

from 38 different nationalities.<br />

In Montenegro, we are unrivalled<br />

terms of what we are offering – this<br />

isn’t just a destination for holidaymakers,<br />

we are building a town with<br />

all the facilities you could imagine,<br />

including the country’s first 18-hole<br />

golf course designed by Gary Player<br />

with triple aspect views of azure<br />

coloured waters. We are truly redefining<br />

the residential landscape not<br />

just in Montenegro, but across the<br />

Balkans.”<br />

<strong>International</strong> buyer demand is expected<br />

to continue rising, due to<br />

the launch of new flight routes<br />

from across Europe such as from<br />

Brussels, Krakow, Munich, Frankfurt,<br />

London, Oslo and Stockholm,<br />

the Far East (through Belgrade), as<br />

well as the launch of direct flights<br />

from the United Arab Emirates.<br />

Currently, Montenegro is attracting<br />

a lot of international attention<br />

due to the government planning<br />

to launch a new citizenship by investment<br />

scheme. Citizenship by<br />

investment offers individuals the<br />

opportunity to obtain Montenegrin<br />

nationality, in return for investment<br />

in the country’s real estate,<br />

plus a donation to fund an aspect<br />

of its development.<br />

It is set to launch this year, but<br />

the details are still being finalised,<br />

and it is likely that the Montenegro<br />

Citizenship by Investment<br />

programme* will be limited to just<br />

64<br />

2,000 applications and the proposed<br />

scheme to run for only three<br />

years ending in 2021.<br />

As regards travel, Montenegro is<br />

now one of the fastest-growing<br />

tourist economies in the world,<br />

with approximate 10% Y-O-Y increase<br />

with number of tourists<br />

reaching 2.3M in 2018 according<br />

to Montenegrin Statistical Office,<br />

and 11.9 million overnight stays<br />

last year. It was also ranked by the<br />

World Travel and Tourism Council<br />

(WTTC) as no. 3 in the world for<br />

tourism growth, with a 12.7% Y-O-Y<br />

increase in visitor numbers, plus<br />

it has an ever-growing reputation<br />

as a high-end luxury destination,<br />

which the launch of the five-star<br />

Chedi is testament to. While owners<br />

and guests at Luštica Bay enjoy<br />

embracing the Montenegrin saying:<br />

Samo Polako – to slow down and<br />

live in the here and now, the construction<br />

rate will continue to increase<br />

at pace until <strong>The</strong> long-term<br />

vision reaches its planned completion<br />

timeline, with its seventh hotel<br />

aimed to complete by 2032.<br />

For more information please visit:<br />

www.lusticabay.com<br />

*Early indications suggest that a<br />

donation of €100,000 will be required,<br />

followed by a real estate investment<br />

of €450,000 in the coastal<br />

region of the country, alongside<br />

a fee of €<strong>15</strong>,000. It is planned that<br />

the benefits of the scheme can be extended<br />

not just to the individual but<br />

also to their family. For an additional<br />

€10,000 per person, four family<br />

members can be added, and further<br />

family members for up to €50,000.<br />

<strong>The</strong> donation will be used to help<br />

funder underdeveloped local government<br />

departments, while the<br />

investment funds will support development<br />

projects in the country’s<br />

northern and central areas, with the<br />

largest amount reserved for projects<br />

in the capital Podgorica, and<br />

the coastal region, including that<br />

around our own Luštica Bay. <strong>The</strong><br />

programme will also benefit tourism,<br />

agriculture and manufacturing,<br />

create new jobs and help to improve<br />

the quality of life of all citizens.

Her works are created from painted stains of colour and varnish that run into each other and create forms<br />

which she combines with photographs. <strong>The</strong> artwork is made on high-quality aluminium, partly crafted in<br />

creative ways, on acrylic or wood. For the final design she paints each work individually with resin and highly<br />

pigmented airbrush colours.

On a balmy August evening, A Summer Soirée<br />

was held at <strong>The</strong> Court in London’s Mayfair,<br />

where Lustica Bay, Montenegro’s newest luxury<br />

development partnered with <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> and<br />

Dalseen Jewellery for an extraordinary experience,<br />

taking an immersive look into Montenegro’s latest luxury<br />

project.<br />

Between a roster of High Net Worth (HNW) individuals<br />

and the elite from Saudi Arabia, the atmosphere was<br />

electric as guests engaged with Lustica Bay’s emerging<br />

public facilities including a school and medical facility.<br />

which is touted to be the next hottest offering for<br />

for decades. So far, the development’s first milestone<br />

was the opening of the five-star <strong>The</strong> Chedi Luštica<br />

Bay Hotel last year, which sits opposite the main marina.<br />

Within it are condo studios for investors and <strong>The</strong><br />

Marina Village, overlooking the Bay of Trašte, which<br />

has already welcomed its first residents. As the village<br />

Montenegro, situated in the heart of the Adriatic Sea,<br />

is a country upping its game at the moment with highend<br />

only greenfield investment project, which boasts energy-efficient<br />

architecture, and the biggest investment<br />

volume development in the country yet ($1.3 billion)<br />

which will host a few thousand residents after completion.<br />

Properties range in size from studios (44m2)<br />

to four bedrooms (201m2) and prices starting from<br />

$<strong>15</strong>4,000.<br />

CORNES DE VACHE 1955<br />

Born in 1955 in the effervescence<br />

of the post-war years, the “Cornes<br />

de vache” model, named after the<br />

characteristic shape of its lugs,<br />

quickly established itself as one of<br />

the emblematic chronographs of<br />

its time. Bearing reference 6087<br />

and produced in extremely limited<br />

numbers, it is today one of the most<br />

sought-after models among devotees<br />

of the Maison. In the vintage<br />

spirit of its Historiques<br />

collection, Vacheron<br />

Constantin is offering a<br />

reissue of this steel piece<br />

characterised by a blend<br />

of tradition and stylistic<br />

originality.<br />

An Exclusive Collection<br />

Vacheron Constantin<br />

wished to give tangible<br />

reality to its heritage by<br />

creating the Historiques<br />

Collection in 2006. Paying<br />

tribute to the archetypes<br />

that have marked the evolution<br />

of the Maison, the<br />

collection highlights the<br />

richness of the Manufacture’s<br />

technical and aesthetic<br />

heritage through<br />

contemporary reinterpretations<br />

of its emblematic<br />

models. Aimed above<br />

all at connoisseurs looking<br />

for pieces imbued<br />

with a vintage spirit, Historiques<br />

watches are exclusive<br />

by nature. Over<br />

the years, various models<br />

such as the famous American<br />

1921 or the Ultra-fine<br />

94<br />

1955 have thus been given a new<br />

lease on life.<br />

Offbeat Classicism<br />

<strong>The</strong> reference 6087 released in 1955<br />

is one of these legendary watches.<br />

It was the Manufacture’s first<br />

water-resistant chronograph and<br />

currently one of the pieces most<br />

coveted by collectors due to its<br />

very limited production. Equipped<br />

with manual-winding Calibre 492,<br />

the model offered a singular blend<br />

of technical rigour and creative<br />

audacity, particularly due to the<br />

evocative shape of its cow hornshaped<br />

lugs. This duality between<br />

the traditional architecture of a<br />

double-pusher chronograph featuring<br />

a dial bearing 30-minute and<br />

small seconds counters, together<br />

with its unconventional design,<br />

vividly expressed the stylistic<br />

originality based on<br />

subtly offbeat classicism<br />

that Vacheron Constantin<br />

has consistently cultivated<br />

throughout its history.<br />

Unprecedented Collaboration<br />

After two first reissues<br />

in platinum in 20<strong>15</strong> and<br />

18K 4N pink gold in 2016,<br />

the Historiques Cornes<br />

de vache 1955 model now<br />

returns in a steel version<br />

emphasising its vintage<br />

inspiration. Water-resistant<br />

to 30 metres, the case<br />

has a more contemporary<br />

38.5 mm diameter than<br />

the 35 mm of the original<br />

and naturally bears<br />

the distinctive lugs reminiscent<br />

of cow horns securing<br />

it to the strap. <strong>The</strong><br />

crafting of the latter was<br />

entrusted to the Milanese<br />

luxury leather goods Maison,<br />

Serapian, founded<br />

in 1928, which shares the<br />

values of excellence cherished<br />

by Vacheron Con-

Members<br />

Affairs<br />

stantin. A dark brown calf leather<br />

strap whose patina blends with the<br />

retro look of the model was chosen<br />

and Serapian also treated the second<br />

loop of the strap to the ‘attacco’<br />

shape featured on its handbag<br />

handles – a signature nod to the famous<br />

Milanese leather goods manufacturer’s<br />

first collaboration with<br />

a watchmaker.<br />

Chronograph Calibre 1142<br />

<strong>The</strong> Historiques Cornes de vache<br />

1955 watch is powered by the manual-winding<br />

1142 chronograph calibre<br />

with a 48-hour power reserve.<br />

In keeping with the grand watchmaking<br />

tradition, the short-time<br />

measuring mechanism is controlled<br />

by a column-wheel, adorned with<br />

a screw head shaped like a Maltese<br />

cross, the Vacheron Constantin<br />

emblem. Entirely bevelled<br />

and hand-decorated, with circular-grained<br />

finishes on the dial<br />

side and Côtes de Genève on the<br />

back, this 164-component movement<br />

beating at a rate of 21,600<br />

vibrations per hour (3Hz) can be<br />

admired through the transparent<br />

sapphire crystal caseback framed<br />

by a ten-sided bezel.<br />

<strong>The</strong> model offers timekeeping<br />

functions including small seconds,<br />

as well as a chronograph with a<br />

central seconds hand and minute<br />

counter. A tachymeter scale (serving<br />

to determine average speed over<br />

a known distance) on a 1000-metre<br />

base surrounds the chronograph<br />

counter featuring blued steel hands<br />

for optimal legibility. A white min-<br />


Members<br />

Affairs<br />

ute-circle punctuated with dark<br />

red numerals highlights the tone<br />

of the grey velvet-finished opaline<br />

dial, embellished with two snailed<br />

counters and bearing applied gold<br />

Roman numerals and hour-markers.<br />

Historiques Cornes de vache 1955<br />

in a Nutshell<br />

As part of its Historiques collection,<br />

Vacheron Constantin presents<br />

a steel version of its emblematic<br />

“Cornes de vache” model, the Maison’s<br />

first water-resistant chronograph<br />

launched in 1955. Immediately<br />

recognisable by its distinctive<br />

cow horn-like lugs, this model is<br />

now one of the most sought-after<br />

among collectors. This reissue,<br />

aesthetically faithful to the original,<br />

is adapted to current watchmaking<br />

standards. <strong>The</strong> diameter of<br />

the case, which is water-resistant<br />

to 30 metres, has been increased<br />

to 38.5 mm. It now houses manual-winding<br />

chronograph Calibre<br />

1142, beating at 21,600 vibrations<br />

per hour and endowed with a 48-<br />

hour power reserve. This movement<br />

powers timekeeping functions<br />

including small seconds as<br />

well as chronograph functions with<br />

a central seconds hand and minutes<br />

counter appearing on a grey<br />

velvet-finish opaline dial, embellished<br />

with two snailed counters<br />

and a white counter. <strong>The</strong> crafting of<br />

the strap in patinated dark brown<br />

calf leather was entrusted to the<br />

traditional Milanese leather goods<br />

Maison Serapian, founded in 1928,<br />

which has thus undertaken its first<br />

collaborative endeavour with Vacheron<br />

Constantin.<br />

On Wednesday August 29th 2019, <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> and their guests were some of the<br />

lucky 300 invitees who gathered at White Bay<br />

Cruise Terminal for an immersive Ferrari experience<br />

paying homage to the most powerful V8 in Ferrari history<br />

and unveiling the Ferrari F8 Tributo for the first<br />

time on Australian soil.<br />

This all-encompassing event allowed guests to delve<br />

deeper into Ferrari’s antiquity and see the progression<br />

of its most influential engine over the years. Guests<br />

were greeted by a custom red light installation leading<br />

them into the concealed ‘birdcage’. Soon after,<br />

Herbert Appleroth Chief Executive Officer for Ferrari<br />

Australasia, addressed attendees. As the intensity<br />

of the forthcoming reveal grew, guests welcomed the<br />

commanding roar of the F8 engine; the curtains then<br />

dropped unveiling the new Ferrari F8 Tributo.<br />

“We are extremely proud to bring the much anticipated<br />

Ferrari F8 Tributo to Australian shores. This vehicle<br />

pays homage to our history. <strong>The</strong> Ferrari F8 Tributo<br />

brings the exhilarating performance of the best 8-cylinder<br />

in the world to all drivers, with unprecedented<br />

handling and superior ride comfort.” Said Herbert Appleroth,<br />

Chief Executive Officer of Ferrari Australasia.<br />

A reveal like no other, the Ferrari F8 Tributo joined a<br />

prestigious line up of the<br />

past V8 models provided<br />

by local private collectors.<br />

<strong>The</strong> cars on display<br />

included the Ferrari 308<br />

GTB 1975, Ferrari 328 GTS<br />

1985, Ferrari 348 TB 1989,<br />

Ferrari F355 Berlinetta<br />

1994, Ferrari 360 Modena<br />

1999, Ferrari F430 2004,<br />

Ferrari 458 Italia 2009<br />

and finally the Ferrari 488<br />

GTB 20<strong>15</strong>. A line up of this<br />

stature is rare to come by,<br />

offering a once in a lifetime<br />

preview for guests.<br />

Guests enjoyed an evening<br />

full of glamour. A<br />

decadent Ferrari red floral<br />

arrangement by esteemed<br />

master floral artist<br />

George Low draped<br />

the ceiling and bar, where<br />

guests were served GH<br />

for the eyes, guests enjoyed<br />

a selection of luxurious<br />

food offerings<br />

including a classic Italian<br />

Aperitivo bar serving<br />

beautifully curated antipasto<br />

plates of San Danielle<br />

prosciutto sliced to<br />

order with hand- rolled<br />

grissini, marinated Sicilian<br />

olives and aged parmesan.<br />

A custom caviar bar circled<br />

the room throughout<br />

the night, offering<br />

guests the Simon Johnson<br />

Caviar Masterclass guide<br />

through a tasting of the<br />

delicacy, demonstrating<br />

the subtle differences in<br />

types and regions.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Ferrari F8 Tributo<br />

is the new mid-rear-engined<br />

sports car that represents<br />

the highest expression<br />

of the Prancing<br />

Horse’s classic two-seater berlinetta. It is a car with<br />

unique characteristics; making the exhilarating performance<br />

of the best 8-cylinder in the world accessible<br />

to all drivers, with unprecedented handling and<br />

superior ride comfort.<br />

Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the Ferrari<br />

F8 Tributo is essentially a bridge to a new design<br />

language that will continue to emphasize Ferrari’s<br />

key characteristics of high performance and extreme<br />

aerodynamic efficiency. In fact, the Ferrari F8 Tributo<br />

is the most aerodynamically efficient series-production<br />

mid-rear-engined berlinetta ever designed.<br />

“We truly expect this stunning new Ferrari V8 Sports<br />

car to become THE dream car for clients and fans<br />

around the world. <strong>The</strong> Ferrari Tributo truly embodies<br />

the pinnacle of Italian excellence and the V8 engine<br />

is seen as the very epitome of sportiness and driving<br />

pleasure. With maximum level of usability, outstanding<br />

design and innovative technologies, we will provide a<br />

new level of driving experience to our customers.” Said<br />

Dieter Knechtel, Chief Executive Officer of Ferrari Far<br />

East and Middle East Hub.<br />

What a special and unforgettable evening to celebrate<br />

the arrival of the Ferrari F8 Tributo!<br />

Simon Johnson Truffle Masterclass<br />

with David Coomer<br />

Winter in Australia is a time for amazing food<br />

and wine experiences, and luckily for us, Australia<br />

is home to some of the most incredible<br />

truffle suppliers in the world. One of those is Western<br />

Australian chef and truffle producer David Coomer.<br />

Simon Johnson invited David to their newly launched<br />

Cooking School in Alexandria to host their Truffle<br />

Masterclass, which featured his famous black perigord<br />

truffles from the cool climate of Western Australia’s<br />

pristine Manjimup region.<br />

Guests were treated to four courses of beautiful dishes,<br />

including:<br />

+ Duck Liver and truffle pate<br />

+ Burrata with truffle and aged balsamic<br />

+ Roasted brussel sprouts, truffle and pancetta<br />

+ Cacio Pepe with shave truffles<br />

HW Speak wine merchants paired wines to each of the<br />

course, which elevated the evening for all those who<br />

attended. Among those who attended was local Sydney<br />

food blogger Chloe Su.<br />

Thank you to Simon Johnson for having us!<br />




Langton’s had the<br />

pleasure of hosting<br />

Vincent Avenel, General<br />

Manager of Domaine<br />

Chanson Père et Fils for<br />

an evening of new release<br />

and back-vintage wines.<br />

Tasting red and white<br />

Burgundy at Doltone<br />

House SOHO @ Jones Bay<br />

Wharf in the heart of Sydney<br />

Harbour… there are<br />

worse ways to spend an<br />

evening.<br />

Everything that follows must be taken<br />

considering the limited context<br />

of Burgundy. Where ‘value’ is used,<br />

think ‘Burgundian value.’ Where ‘affordable’<br />

is written, read ‘affordable<br />

for Burgundy.’ While Claret fanciers<br />

might say the world’s greatest<br />

wines hail from Bordeaux, Burgundy<br />

lovers will disagree. However,<br />

minuscule production volumes in<br />

Burgundy fall far short of global demand.<br />

What this does to the price<br />

is obvious.<br />

Domaine Chanson Père et Fils, established<br />

in 1750, is one of the five<br />

great Burgundy négociant houses.<br />

Though modest in scale compared<br />

to its competitors, Chanson still<br />

produces Grand Cru wines that can<br />

be accessed for prices in line with<br />

top tier Australian Pinot and Chardonnay.<br />

Vincent, whose background is in<br />

sales and marketing, took over from<br />

Guy du Courcel, who had raised the<br />

bar for Chanson since his 2002 appointment<br />

by owners, Bollinger.<br />

Yes, the Champagne house!<br />

We asked Vincent about the challenges<br />

of management around harvest<br />

time.<br />

‘During two weeks, the decisions<br />

you are going to make in terms of<br />

when to pick, how many people you<br />

need, what kind of vinification we<br />

are going to do, will have a huge<br />

impact on the next two or three<br />

years. So there is a lot of pressure.’<br />

<strong>The</strong> pressure has increased with<br />

the temperature soaring across Europe.<br />

With heatwaves looking like<br />

the new normal, we asked Vincent<br />

how Chanson are planning to deal<br />

with climate change.<br />

‘For this year [2019], it’s too early<br />

to tell. But what I can tell you<br />

is that for the last 20 years I have<br />

been working in Burgundy I have<br />

seen a huge change. A very good<br />

indication is picking dates. 20 years<br />

ago, we would start in the middle<br />

of September. Now we begin picking<br />

at the start of September and<br />

in some cases the end of August.<br />

So that is an indication that global<br />

warming is not just a concept, it is<br />

a reality. And, working with mother<br />

nature, we can really feel it.’<br />

And the Chanson view of the Australian<br />

market for Burgundy?<br />

‘For us, it’s obviously not a big volume.<br />

But it is a very good market<br />

for promoting and selling our premium<br />

wines. Actually, many of our<br />

customers are producers themselves<br />

and they buy our wines as<br />

we, in Burgundy, are considered the<br />

benchmark. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay<br />

have become very trendy<br />

in the last ten years and Australia is<br />

obviously following that trend. And<br />

there are lots of good restaurants<br />

here, the cuisine level is very high<br />

and people very curious<br />

about Burgundy.’<br />

After talking to Vincent,<br />

we were joined by 60<br />

guests of Langton’s for<br />

a masterclass dinner at<br />

SOHO @ Jones Bay Wharf.<br />

Vincent led the proceedings<br />

with a tasting of his<br />

latest Grand Cru and<br />

Premier Cru Bourgogne<br />

blanc and rouge. We<br />

were also treated to some<br />

back vintage wines that<br />

showed the development of the<br />

wine over just five years. If patience<br />

is your particular virtue, then cellaring<br />

these wines will reward over<br />

decades.<br />

Vincent also challenged some of<br />

the hallowed names of Burgundy<br />

with wines that don’t cost in the<br />

thousands, if not the tens-of-thousands<br />

(in fact, you’re lucky if you<br />

get them at that!). It was a common<br />

refrain of guests during the evening<br />

on the night; ‘Grand Cru Burgundy<br />

at this price? It’s great!’ After a few<br />

glasses, Vincent got the crowd going<br />

with a song, the details of which<br />

will remain a delightful memory for<br />

those in attendance.<br />

Next time, perhaps?<br />

For more than 30 years, Langton’s<br />

has been at the forefront of Australia’s<br />

fine wine scene through<br />

its groundbreaking wine auction<br />

events, involvement with Penfolds<br />

Re-corking Clinics and its highly<br />

influential Classification of Australian<br />

Wine. Langtons customers also<br />

have access to a complimentary<br />

personal Wine Broker. More than<br />

concierge service, a Langton’s broker<br />

has access to off-market pricing<br />

on rare and back-vintage wines.<br />

SYDNEY<br />

McLaren’s brand new GT has officially landed<br />

and was unveiled at the contemporary and sophisticated,<br />

Bar M in Rushcutters Bay. Guests<br />

were left in suspense, as a silk cover was slowly pulled<br />

away to reveal the sophisticated styling of McLaren’s<br />

unique interpretation of a modern Grand Tourer.<br />

And guests were not left disappointed! Lighter, faster<br />

and highly engaging to drive, the new McLaren GT<br />

challenges the conventions of the Grand Tourer category.<br />

Managing Director of Asia Pacific and China for Mc-<br />

Laren Automotive, George Biggs, greeted guests, noting:<br />

“<strong>The</strong> McLaren GT is an exceptionally refined vehicle<br />

with class leading elegance and sophistication. <strong>The</strong><br />

dynamic performance of this vehicle utilises the next<br />

generation of our pioneering Optimal Control <strong>The</strong>ory<br />

to deliver levels of ride comfort. It has been designed<br />

for drivers with a sense of adventure, who are seeking<br />

both performance and continent- crossing capa-<br />


ility. <strong>The</strong> McLaren GT is the perfect companion for<br />

the great Australian road trip and we’re confident our<br />

customers will agree.”<br />

McLaren Global Marketing Director, Jamie Corstorphine,<br />

also attended the event, flying in from the UK<br />

to personally take Australian customers through the<br />

design journey of the new GT.<br />

Members<br />

Affairs<br />

A glance at the interior of the new model reveals a cosseting<br />

space designed to delight on longer journeys,<br />

but with all the essentials for focused, high performance<br />

driving; the seating position, location of controls<br />

and forward visibility are as important here as<br />

they are in any McLaren. <strong>The</strong> streamlined, electrically<br />

adjusted and heated seats, which are unique to the<br />

McLaren GT, have been engineered to meet the requirements<br />

of Grand Touring, optimised for long-distance<br />

comfort, with the perfect amount of support in<br />

combination with superb lateral control.<br />

As a first for McLaren, the new GT features storage<br />

space in both the front and rear of the vehicle, meaning<br />

it has the ability to easily house a golf bag or two<br />

pairs of 185cm skis and boots as well as luggage, plus a<br />

further <strong>15</strong>0 litres of storage at the front, enabling the<br />

new McLaren GT to accommodate a total of 570 litres.<br />

<strong>The</strong> launch event also coincided with the arrival of<br />

McLaren’s first bespoke luggage collection, displayed<br />

for the first time in Australia at this exclusive event.<br />

Designed especially for the McLaren GT by McLaren<br />

Special Operations, GT Luggage Set conforms to the<br />

brand’s highest’s standards of engineering, quality and<br />

exclusivity, and consists of four pieces, the garment<br />

case, the weekend bag, the cabin bag and the full-size<br />

While we can’t give the gift<br />

of time itself, we can certainly<br />

make every passing<br />

moment that much more precious.<br />

Just in time for the holiday season,<br />

Zenith unveils a number of High<br />

Jewelry editions of two of its most<br />

emblematic pieces from the DEFY<br />

collection, the DEFY El Primero 21<br />

and DEFY Classic. Whether as a<br />

his-and-hers set or an unforgettable<br />

gift for that special someone,<br />

these jewel embellished editions of<br />

the DEFY are sure to make a sparkling<br />

declaration of affection this<br />

winter.<br />

A jewel interpretation of the modern<br />

chronograph icon<br />

Already a statement piece with its<br />

unrivalled 100th of a second chronograph<br />

movement and resolutely<br />

contemporary looks, the DEFY<br />

El Primero 21 High Jewelry pushes<br />

boundaries even further. With<br />

a rose gold case entirely set with<br />

brilliant cut white diamonds and<br />

the bezel with baguette cut diamonds,<br />

this rendition of the DEFY<br />

El Primero 21 turns the exceptional<br />

into outstanding. And if diamonds<br />

aren’t enough, the DEFY El Primero<br />

21 High Jewelry Rainbow is as<br />

joyfully festive as it is an enchanting<br />

combination of watchmaking<br />

and gem-setting prowess coming<br />

seamlessly together. On the rose<br />

gold case, white diamonds of varying<br />

sizes are applied in a seemingly<br />

random pattern, in a technique<br />

known as snow setting. <strong>The</strong> bezel<br />

takes on the vibrant “rainbow”<br />

treatment, where 44 baguette-cut<br />

sapphires are meticulously picked<br />

and arranged in a progressive colour<br />

scheme that spans the entire<br />

visible light spectrum. This rainbow<br />

effect continues on to the open<br />

dial, where the hour markers are<br />

set with sapphires matching those<br />

on the bezel.<br />

A skeleton with an alluring twist<br />

Perfectly proportioned and boasting<br />

a uniquely conceived open dial<br />

has all the makings of the perfect<br />

icon even more outstanding<br />

is the DEFY Classic High Jewelry,<br />

with a titanium case set with brilliant<br />

cut-diamonds and baguette<br />

diamonds on the bezel. This bejewelled<br />

edition retains the signature<br />

Zenith blue touches throughout,<br />

from the dial to the rubber and alligator<br />

leather strap.<br />

Adding a spectacular pop of colour<br />

to this holiday season is the<br />

DEFY Classic High Jewelry Rainbow,<br />

which is all about capturing<br />

the beauty of light in all its wavelengths.<br />

As white is the combination<br />

of all colours, it serves as the<br />

perfect backdrop for the rainbow<br />

effect on the DEFY Classic, with 48<br />

unique baguette cut sapphires on<br />

the bezel arranged by colour graduation,<br />

complemented by brilliant<br />

white diamonds on the titanium<br />

case for the perfect scintillating<br />

touch.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se rare gem-set versions of the<br />

DEFY collection will make their way<br />

to Zenith boutiques and retailers<br />

around the world starting from October<br />

2019 and are sure to make it<br />

TLN Adria<br />

Launches in a<br />

Glamorous Cocktail<br />

Event at the<br />

Chedi Lustica Bay,<br />

Montenegro<br />

We are delighted to announce the official<br />

launch of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Adria following<br />

a fantastic launch party on the 7th<br />

September 2019, hosted by Lustica Bay at <strong>The</strong> Chedi<br />

Luštica Bay Hotel in Montenegro.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> <strong>International</strong> is the world’s leading<br />

luxury affinity marketing group and private membership<br />

club for luxury brands and high-end service<br />

providers. A private consortium of 60 semi non-competitive<br />

premium brands in each luxury capital of the<br />

world, working together at senior director level for<br />

mutual business and client development.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> was launched in London in 2007<br />

and covers areas of the luxury market such as private<br />

jets, yachting, motor concierge, health & beauty,<br />

wealth management, premium real estate, exclusive<br />

travel, golf, jewellery & watches, entertainment, fashion,<br />

and many more. Having built up quite an impressive<br />

reputation with more than 20 years of experience<br />

and offices across Europe, Australia, Asia, the Middle<br />

East, America, and parts of Africa, their membership<br />

portfolio boasts the world’s leading brands including<br />

Ferrari, Johnnie Walker, Bentley, Cartier, Abercrombie<br />

& Kent, Qatar Airways, Bugatti, Mercedez Benz, Lamborghini,<br />

Lotus, Bvlgari, Porsche, BMW, Vertu, and<br />

Bang & Olufsen, amongst others.<br />

Officially launching in September, <strong>The</strong><br />

<strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Adria is set to carve<br />

a new face to the luxury sector in the<br />

region by forming a consortium of the<br />

finest home-grown and international<br />

luxury brands. <strong>The</strong> aim is to set a<br />

standard for the term ‘luxury’ inside<br />

the region and to create a platform<br />

that will facilitate discussion, interaction<br />

and collaboration between<br />

players across all luxury sectors. This<br />

will be achieved by fostering a more<br />

strategic approach to marketing<br />

activities by giving member brands direct<br />

access to valuable, pre-qualified,<br />

high net worth clients, both locally<br />

and internationally. <strong>The</strong> proposition of<br />

the <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Adria network is<br />

to cater to both luxury brands inside<br />

the region and luxury brands outside<br />

the region, who either wish to enter<br />

the market or to reach an <strong>International</strong><br />


<strong>The</strong> cocktail reception at <strong>The</strong> Chedi Luštica Bay Hotel,<br />

Montenegro, commenced with an opening speech by<br />

Ana Roncevic, Managing Director of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong><br />

Adria who commented,<br />

“I am extremely happy and proud that <strong>The</strong><br />

<strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> expanded in our region<br />

and that TLN Adria launched tonight. It is<br />

important for luxury brands and high-end<br />

service providers to reinvent themselves to<br />

remain relevant in today’s evolving luxury<br />

industry. This is where <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> can help. Creative relationship<br />

building among our members either on B2B<br />

or B2C basis gives them the opportunity<br />

to deliver the highest value products and<br />

services via extraordinary experiences that<br />

will make their clients feel special. We are<br />

very excited for all partnerships we will be<br />

creating together.“<br />

Also, in attendance were the Global CEO of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> <strong>International</strong>, Fares Ghattas, and Global<br />

Head of Business Development, Helena Warren,<br />

together with the Managing Director of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> Italy, Silvia Lelli, and <strong>The</strong> Managing Director<br />

of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Thailand Elena Trunova. Each<br />

of whom are keen to collaborate with <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> Adria in their respective markets.<br />

Under <strong>The</strong><br />

<strong>The</strong> event was supported by <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong>’s<br />

founding members Lustica Bay, Discover Montenegro<br />

and Pernod Ricard with senior directors from<br />

each brand represented on the night. Guests were<br />

served delicious Beefeater gin cocktails and Chivas<br />

Regal whiskey throughout the evening and treated to<br />

premium luxury cigars supplied by Cigar Club Mareva<br />

from Split, Croatia.<br />

Hrvoje Rodin, Sales Director for Pernod Ricard Adriatic<br />

commented “It is a pleasure to be a part of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> as it is important to be amongst a relevant<br />

target audience and to spread the word of luxury<br />

and premium spirits. We see great opportunity for all<br />

of the brands and clients within the network to enjoy<br />

our drinks through our strategy to offer a “drinking<br />

experience” and to build passionate luxury brands and<br />

drive brand loyalty.”

Under <strong>The</strong><br />

Spotlight<br />

With guest dancing into the night against<br />

the stunning backdrop of Lustica Bay marina,<br />

the Head of Sales and Marketing for<br />

Lustica Bay, Ahmed Zaki, demonstrated<br />

the importance of a local and international<br />

stage for the project when he said,<br />

“It is an honour for us to welcome<br />

representatives from <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> branches worldwide to<br />

Lustica Bay. At the recent <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

<strong>Network</strong> <strong>International</strong> Awards in Dubai,<br />

we were thrilled when our town received<br />

an award for <strong>The</strong> Best Development in Europe.<br />

One of the largest and most important<br />

projects in this part of Europe, Lustica<br />

Bay has established close cooperation with<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong>. We held a joint event<br />

just last week in London bringing together<br />

networking circles from the Kingdom<br />

of Saudi Arabia. And of course, here today,<br />

we come together again with the formal<br />

launch of <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Adria. We hope<br />

that in celebration of our continued cooperation,<br />

you will enjoy this evening with us<br />

– meet, talk, share knowledge and expertise<br />

– so that we can, together, build on this<br />

exciting momentum in the development of<br />

Montenegro and this part of Europe.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> following morning, guests were welcomed in<br />

Porto Montenegro by Anita Dekovic Moskov where<br />

they were guided through the Naval Heritage Museum<br />

after which they were served with refreshments in<br />

the beautiful setting of Porto Montenegro Yacht Club.<br />

Brand alignments, joint collaborations, product<br />

placements, media sharing, B2B and B2C networking<br />

events are just a few of the methods through which<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> plans to increase awareness and<br />

explore new business development opportunities for<br />

and among its members.
