A. Lange & Söhne @ The Concorso d’Eleganza 2017


From 26 to 28 May, A. Lange & Söhne is staging its sixth appearance at the exclusive concourse d’élégance for automotive works of art, ranging from the earliest years of motoring to the concept cars of tomorrow. This year, the motto of this tradition-steeped event is “Around the World in 80 Days – Voyage Through an Era of Records.” As in past years, the winner of the “Best of Show” category will be presented with the unique Como Edition of the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE. During the last weekend in May, the world’s most elegant classic vehicles will be able to be admired in the sprawling grounds of the Villa d’Este on Lake Como. Historic automobiles and motorcycles, as well as concept vehicles that provide a visionary glimpse into the future, will vie for the votes of the jury and the public in five categories. In partnership with the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, A. Lange & Söhne has been sponsoring the three-day classic weekend since 2012. This year, the Saxon manufactory is again donating the coveted prize for the competition’s most charismatic automobile. At the award ceremony on 28 May, Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid will present a customised.


LANGE 1 TIME ZONE “Como Edition” to the winner in the prestigious “Best of Show” category. The hand-engraved caseback of this white-gold special edition depicts the Concorso’s coat of arms. On its city ring, Central European Time is represented by Como. The motto of this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza forges a number of links to the heritage of the competition and to A. Lange & Söhne. The Grand Hotel Villa d’Este opened its doors in 1873 and, in Glashütte, the Lange family domain was built to serve as a residence and manufactory. Jules Verne’s adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days was published in the same year.


Its topics portrayed in the book, the circumnavigation of the globe combined with a race against time, precipitated enormous progress in human mobility as well as new demands in time measurement. In 1883, a year before the International Meridian Conference in Washington D.C. subdivided the world into 24 one-hour time zones, A. Lange & Söhne was already crafting pocket watches capable of displaying different times, either with two pairs of hands or a second dial on the movement side. They are regarded as historic precursors of the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE, which has a second time indication that can be quickly and conveniently set to any of the 24 time zones with a pusher and a city ring.

Leonard Paris SS2017 Handbag Collections


Leonard Handbag SS2017 Collections create a fresh yet exotic universe, introduce sensitivity in the everyday palette. The patterns, both organic and geometrical, borrow from “Art Nouveau”, recorded precisely the proportioned views of natural scenery, with the lingering charms of ancient landscapes and idyllic poems. Eastern flowers like the peach blossom, water lily bloom vividly on leather, colorful, fresh and evanescent, telling stories of the oriental Neverland. When Leonard presents a collection, everything about it exudes novelty and creativity. The indissociable Lyons-style printing techniques, the hand printed floral patterns, and more importantly creation based around the tradition state the constant quest for the beautiful, and has turned into a real work of art for the new Leonard handbag collections.

BREMONT @ The First Ever Timing Partner To Henley Royal Regatta


2017 will mark the first time in 178 years that the renowned British event, Henley Royal Regatta, will partner with a small number of luxury brands and Bremont will be the first Official Timekeeper in the Regatta’s established history. The event attracts thousands of visitors over five days and spectators will enjoy over 200 races of an international standard, including Olympians and crews new to the event. Each of the brand partners were chosen due to their British heritage and synergies with Henley Royal Regatta’s values and ethos, helping to develop the event and increase its standing as one of the most iconic dates in the British sporting summer calendar. Bremont will be joined by Hackett London and Aston Martin as the other official event partners. The event will take place from 28th June to 2nd July 2017 where Bremont will have a pop-up boutique on site, situated outside the bandstand entrance to the Stewards’ Enclosure and showcasing the whole Bremont range.


Sir Steve Redgrave, Chairman of the Regatta’s Committee of Management: “I have known both Nick and Giles for a number of years now, and have followed their success story closely. Being a leading luxury watch brand, and located in Henley-on-Thames, it is fantastic to have them on board as Official Timekeepers for Henley Royal Regatta. We have been working closely on the event clocks and hand-held mechanical stopwatches for the race umpires which we are very excited about.”  Henley Royal Regatta was first held on the River Thames in 1839 and has been annual ever since. Originally staged by the Mayor and people of Henley as a public attraction with a fair and other amusements, the emphasis rapidly changed so that competitive amateur rowing became its main purpose. Today it has an unparalleled tradition and place in the hearts of top rowers around the world.


Giles English, Co-Founder of Bremont: “Henley Royal Regatta was founded even before the America’s Cup in 1839, and with our heritage in mind, it is lovely to be part of another historical British event. Remarkably Henley Royal Regatta is one of the few sporting events that is still timed mechanically rather than digitally which is very in-keeping with what Bremont is all about. As such we will be building a custom hand held chronograph for the umpires. Bremont makes beautifully engineered mechanical timepieces designed to be tested to extremes so the event is also a great fit with the Regatta course being notorious for pushing its athletes to their absolute limits.”  Nick English, Co-Founder of Bremont: “As a British luxury watch brand, Bremont is passionate about reinvigorating this once booming British industry. In the past 15 years we have made considerable strides in this direction as we endeavour to strengthen Henley-on-Thames as the home of British watchmaking. Henley, set in one of the most beautiful parts of the British countryside, has always been internationally renowned for being the global home of rowing. With our manufacturing base being meters from the River Thames, the tie-up as timing partner for Henley Royal Regatta has a lovely synergy. Given the event has never had brand partners in its entire history, dating back to 1839, it’s a real honour to have been asked to get involved.”
