LOUIS MOINET ASTROLABE TOURBILLON

Louis Moinet Astrolabe Tourbillon
First of all, how much do you really know about an astrolabe? Do you even know what it is? Let’s take a quick review about it. So, the astrolabe is an instrument used to observe the stars as well as determine the time (in the daytime by observing the sun, at night by observing the stars). It was used by astronomers, navigators and astrologers.

The Astrolabe Tourbillon watch is inspired by the ancient astronomical invention of Arabic scholar Ibn al-Sarraj whose astrolabe made about seven centuries ago. Probably the last craftsman in the world still making this instrument is Martin Brunold. He made an exclusive series of 12 “Al Sarraj” astrolabes which are exact replicas of the original. The watch actually contains Martin Brundold’s work of art and a defined mechanical tourbillon with the streamlined design of the astrolabe.

The 18K white gold case is composed of 59 different components. Manufactured in a limited series of 12 pieces, it comes in a wooden box with a meteorite fragment from the moon and an authentic astrolabe. The Astrolabe Tourbillon watch is equipped with the Louis Moinet signature crown guard. The strap boasts hand-stitched Louisiana alligator with 18K white gold and black PVD-treated titanium folding clasp. This fascinating watch is available for $280,000.

SEBASTIAN VETTEL – THE HIGHEST PAID DRIVER IN HISTORY

Sebastian Vettel - The Highest Paid Driver In History

The four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel will quit the Red Bull team at the end of the season and join Ferrari. He will sign a three-year deal, and a figure of £50million (approximately $80million) per year has already been reported as the price Ferrari will have paid, making Vettel one of the world’s highest paid driver in history.

Legendary Michael Schumacher, who won five titles for Ferrari, was being paid $31 million per year which puts him slightly in the shadow compared to Vettel’s future earnings. Ferrari has always taken the sport especially seriously, but since 2007, Ferrari hasn’t captured a driver’s title. Ferrari will start a new chapter with a hope that Sebastian would be able to return the title.

“The voice inside me, the hunger to do something new, was bigger. It was not the easiest decision but you have to listen to your heart,” said Vettel.

Winning 39 races and four consecutive championships, Vettel had dominated the sport in recent years. Although not yet officially conformed, for next year likely to sign a large contract is Fernando Alson, the man that Vettel replaced at Ferrari. Another novelty is that the McLaren team will get a new Honda engine next year.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner said: “All I can do is wish him the very, very best for the future. He will still be close to our hearts at Red Bull, but on January 1 he will be a competitor. Obviously Ferrari have made him a very attractive offer.”

VACHERON CONSTANTIN’S DEBUTS THE ULTIMATE ASTRONOMIC WATCH

Ultimate Astronomic Watch01

Vacheron Constantin has long set the standard for watches out of this world, but the brand’s ultimate astronomical super-complication is a piece that will leave no one indifferent to its class. The one-of-a-kind wristwatch Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astro­nomical Grand Complication 3600 is a double-sided mechanical wonder. Its price tag is also astronomical and comes at about $1 million, but it is justified.

Ultimate Astronomic Watch03

This is a piece of multiple qualities aside from the striking number of its complications, which the company has tallied at 23. They are also brilliantly themed and organized. The complications fall into three groups: civil (conventional) time and calendar functions, solar time, and sidereal time. As both solar and sidereal time vary slightly from civil time, each group of complications is driven by its own corrected gear train radiating from the movement’s central wheel for greater accuracy. The solar gear train drives functions includes a marching equation of time, sunrise and sunset times, length of day, and seasonal indications. These are all represented on the front dial with civil-time functions such as the perpetual calendar, moon phase, and an interesting tide indicator with a depiction of the sun, Earth, and lunar orbital positions.

Ultimate Astronomic Watch02

On the back of the astronomical super-complication are such celestial functions as a star chart composed of two rotating sapphire disks with a starry sky over the sandblast-finish movement plates. The watch’s remarkable compactness is even more noteworthy than its multiplicity of functions. At 45 mm in diameter and just 13.6 mm thick, the timepiece is the same size as most sports watches—a reality made possible through carefully designed components, some of which created with advanced photolithography fabrication techniques. However, this does not take away from the ease of reading the dial, which is a truly striking combination and one difficult to achieve.

KAVALAN’S FIVE NEW SINGLE MALTS

Kavalan’s Five New Single Malts

The Taiwanese distiller Kavalan introduced its first single malt to market fewer than 10 years ago, but that was enough time to establish itself as one of the world’s leading producers of fine whisky. Emerging as an unlikely player on the market for exquisite spirits, the climate of Taiwan has even managed to accelerate the whiskey’s maturation. This has given Kavalan a real shot at competing with renowned whiskey manufacturers in Scotland, America and Japan.

In April, wealthy buyers will be able to sneak a taste of Kavalan’s latest line of sherry and port cask-aged whiskies. The collection includes such exclusive offerings like the Kavalan Amontillado Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky – matured with a cap of flor, imbuing it with a fresh baked bread flavor that is evident in the whisky. Whiskey aficionados who enjoy their beverage with a zesty citrus flavour will enjoy the Kavalan Manzanilla Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky with its medley of dried fruit. Kavalan Moscatel Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky is a sublime treat to the palate thanks to its long, luxuriant and creamy texture, where dates, dark chocolate cake and raspberry jam, honey and toasted nuts come together in a symphony of flavours. The first three varieties of the collection have an asking price of $599 per bottle while the Kavalan PX Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky will retail for $699. Aged in PX casks, it boasts a subtle lemongrass and toffee nuance for an invigorating sensation on the palate. Finally, there is the Kavalan Port Cask Single Malt Whisky – matured in Portuguese barriques that once held high-alcohol fortified wine. The dense fruit-forward whisky costs $299 per bottle and presents a robust combination of brown sugar and plums, with a hint of smoke.
