Bulgari Octo Ultranero Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: BULGARI

If there’s one thing to be said about Bulgari, it’s how they never, ever shy away from the big or the bold. In fact, as far as the Italian jeweller is concerned, the more bling it is, the more shiny they are, the better. Everyone knows of their B.zero1 rings, thick chunky bands of gold that somehow still sit so beautifully on the finger, with their latest 3-gold ‘Perfect Mistake‘ B.zero1 ring a firm favourite of mine.

And then there are these, from their new Octo Ultranero collection that were recently unveiled at Baselworld 2016. Not content with just using stainless steel, their Octo Ultranero Solotempo timepieces come treated with black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) for that ultra-luxe finish. Featuring 41 mm watch faces that come with a full 18K pink gold bezel and crown set (right) or a DLC crown with its crown set in 18K pink gold (left), both pieces come with integrated rubber straps for that handsome rugged finish most men will appreciate. Double barrel, 50 hour power reserve, water-resistant up to 100 metres, the watches are priced at SGD13,950 and SGD10,050respectively.

For something that’s a bit more levelled-up, there’s this, the Octo Ultranero Velocissimo that’s a chronograph with auto-winding features. Otherwise it’s pretty much the same as the former pieces, with 41 mm 18K pink gold bezel and crown set, date display and of course, the integrated rubber wrist strap. Exceedingly handsome and priced at SGD17,770, here’s what you else you need to know about the collection. Firstly, there are many more variations that you’ll see at Bulgari boutiques at Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City, and secondly (and more importantly) they are all now available in Singapore for your kind consideration. In other words, #happyshopping.

Bulgari Bvlgari-Bvlgari Roman Sorbets Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: BULGARI

I know what you’re thinking, at first glance they look like delectable sweets, right? And that’s the exact premise of Bulgari’s new Bvlgari-Bvlgari Roman Sorbets collection, a new line of jewellery that will be launched in Singapore sometime in end May/early June 2016.

Inspired by the humble yet delicious sorbet that’s as iconic to Italy as Bulgari is to Rome, it is said that Roman Emperor Nero had slaves run to the mountains for fresh ice which was then flavoured with fruit juice, and that was quite possibly the origins of the sorbet (or sorbetti in Italian) we know and love today.

With precious gems like pink tourmalines and sapphires ‘scooped’ into bands of solid pink gold or white gold, you’ll find a range of jewellery pieces from the Bvlgari-Bvlgari Roman Sorbets collection, including my favourites, pendants that come with chains and of course, the rings that will add the right amount of sparkle to any finger.

Prices will start from just SGD3000 (MYR8000) for the pink gold band with pink tourmalines and amethysts and go up to SGD5140 (MYR14,500) for the white gold pendant necklace with blue sapphires and tsavorites. In other words, if you’re looking for something sweet that will never ‘melt’, maybe these are the sorbets you should pick up.

New Rouge Clé de Cartier Watch

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

The New Rouge Clé de Cartier Watch

There’s a new and extremely beautiful watch on the scene and it belongs to Cartier. The name Clé de Cartiercomes from the word “key” in French, and the crown on this watch as a unmistakable resemblance to one. This winding mechanism on the watch has been specially designed to be ergonomic, while also introducing a new gesture of the hand which makes for setting the date and time completely effortless.

Cartier’s initial aim was clear with this watch. They wanted to create a new shape inspired by a circle and to introduce a new, sleek, curved aesthetic into their watchmaking vocabulary. I think they have definitely achieved that with this gorgeous new design! The curved profile of the watch case highlights its streamlined, organic and ergonomic design making sure it contours and hugs the wrist, allowing for ease and comfort.

Developed, produced and assembled by the Cartier Manufacture’s craftsmen in Switzerland.

This beautiful new watch comes in 8 different designs, for both men and women, some emblazoned with diamonds while others feature a slightly plainer face. Three versions of gold are optional, including yellow, white and rose or you can have a leather strap if you prefer. One thing i for certain and that’s the fact that with this watch gracing your wrist, you will definitely stand out from the crowd. You can find out more about this watch at the Cartier website here and here and you can also check out the video and the mechanics below.

Cartier-Watch-BackThe design of this gorgeous Cartier watch is a testament to precision, balance, and proportion. This means that right angles have been eliminated, the bezel is completely rounded, and the lugs have been softened. This new watch is elongated and refined with the crown showcasing a sapphire which has been cleverly slipped inside the structure to seamlessly blend in with the surrounding metal.

This Cartier watch was named after the year the Maison was founded in 1847. It has a MC movement that integrates a fast barrel, which lends remarkable chronometric stability, while a bidirectional automatic winding mechanism provides exceptional robustness and durability. Finally, the watch is decorated with a Vagues de Genève motif, a date indicator and a 42-hour power reserve. With a diameter of 25.6 mm, it was designed according to the same principles as the case to be streamlined and sleek. Aren’t the mechanics just beautiful?

DRIVE DE CARTIER IS A MODERN CLASSIC GENTLEMAN’S WATCH

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Cartier-drive-1
We’re only three weeks into the New Year, but we’re already seeing some stunning examples of haute horlogerie that are of the cutting edge of innovation and design. Will 2016 be the year of the watch? We don’t know yet but if Cartier’s latest is anything to go by, then the future looks promising. Everything about the CartierDrive from its cushion shaped case to its simplistic (and diamond-free) dial, project sophistication, elegance and style. This is not a watch that relies on bells and whistles, instead it is a timeless design and an in-house movement that do all the talking.

Cartier-drive-2
Available in pink gold and steel cases, with either a black, grey, or white guilloché dial, with roman numerals and sword shaped hands, this watch comes with the Manufacture Movement 1904 MC. This movement is available in two versions: the 1904-PS MC which tells the hours, minutes, and small seconds and date; and the 1904-FU MC which features a second time zone, a day/night indicator, a large date and small seconds. Cartier has also created a Fine Watchmaking version of Drive de Cartier complete with a flying tourbillon 9452 MC and, of course, “Poinçon de Genève” certification. With a starting price of just $6,250, this is staple watch that promises to be well worth the money.

No, there aren’t any cute baby panthers in Cartier’s Holiday 2015 campaign this year, instead, we have red-haired beauty British model Karen Elson lending her vocals (and acting talents) to Cartier’s remake of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, with Elson singing how ‘if you still want party-eh, go straight to Cartier’.
