There may be days when you feel exhausted, even at the start of the day. While you think you’ve had enough sleep, you find it challenging to keep your eyes open. For many who can’t seem to stay awake, drinking coffee for a caffeine fix may seem to help somewhat. However, it is pretty common to experience fatigue, especially when work demands so much from you. You carry on throughout the day and can’t wait to get home and rest. When the day is finally over, there is a sense of relief, but you may still experience fatigue and weariness.
While it is common to lack energy sometimes, you want to replenish your depleted energy and perform optimally at work or other daily activities. Luckily, there are natural ways to increase your energy levels when fatigue hits you, allowing you to stay focused and active throughout the day. Unless you have underlying health conditions that require medical intervention, you can try these methods to regain your energy. You can start by checking out onefarm.com where you can discover organic products that can potentially help increase your energy and boost productivity.
Here are some natural ways to stay energetic the whole day.
You reduce the risk of developing heart disease, obesity, and diabetes when you exercise regularly. Moreover, studies prove that exercise or other physical activities can boost your energy and keep your fatigue at bay. According to tests conducted, exercise has improved the energy levels of people who participated in the program. Exercise does not have to be a heavy workout. Taking walks, jogging, or even performing household chores that require moving around are physical activities that can boost your energy even more.
Many people underestimate the impact of sleep on our overall health. Some push their sleeping hours to the limit trying to get work done or meet a deadline before retiring. Lack of sleep depletes your body of energy, making you lethargic and irritable. You cannot focus on work and may even experience headaches from not getting enough sleep. Experts recommend getting 7 hours of uninterrupted, quality sleep to increase energy levels and stay healthy. Try setting a schedule for sleeping and waking, and remain consistent. Create a peaceful atmosphere inside your bedroom, remove gadgets and other distracting devices, and get the rest you need.
Water is vital for your overall well-being. Keeping yourself well-hydrated keeps your organs healthy and impacts your mental state. If you are dehydrated, your brain does not function as it should, and your mood and energy levels are low. Therefore, it is best to make it a habit to drink water as frequently as possible, increasing the amount during physical activities or when living in an area with a warmer climate.
These are just some natural ways you can try to replenish your lost energy. On a final note, try to manage your stress as it may also be causing exhaustion and lack of energy. While stress happens to everyone, it saps your energy and tires you out. So, after a long day, forget about work for a while and learn to relax.
It’s official, the powerful, stylish, and agile hot hatch U.S. drivers are looking for is on its way, the first-ever 2023 GR Corolla. With the detail-obsessed TOYOTA GAZOO Racing team at the helm, and master driver Akio Toyoda, a.k.a. Morizo, signing off on approval, this all new addition to Toyota’s growing lineup of sports cars brings the performance, handling, and functionality that hot hatch fans love.
Powered by the lightweight, compact-yet-powerful G16E-GTS turbo charged, direct/port injected three-cylinder engine, GR Corolla delivers 300 hp and 273 lb.- ft. of torque. Engineered for snappy acceleration out of the corners, output hits peak torque at 3000-5500 rpm, with max horsepower coming at 6500 rpm. It’s thrill inducing power is piped through a unique triple exhaust that’s designed to reduce back-pressure for maximum power delivery.
The G16-E engine is paired with Toyota’s rally developed GR-Four All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) drivetrain. This system gives drivers a choice of 60-40, 50-50, or 30-70 power distribution to the front and rear wheels. GR Corolla will be offered exclusively in a manual transmission, staying true to its hands-on rally racing roots.
Its broad hatch profile and low center of gravity are built on Toyota’s GA-C platform, with enhanced frame reinforcements developed specifically for GR Corolla at GR Factory at Toyota Motomachi plant. Functional exterior air vents and aerodynamic features further support steering stability.
GR Corolla will come in two grades, Core and Circuit Edition.
The Core Grade will be available later this year in white, black, and Supersonic Red. It will have a color keyed roof with rear lip spoiler, GR-Four stamped side rockers, and wide-fender flares. On the inside, seating for five will come with GR logoed fabric sport seats.
The Circuit Edition will be a limited-run model available in 2023. Standard colors are white, Supersonic Red and Heavy Metal with the same GR-Four stamped side rockers and wide fenders as the Core. It adds a forged carbon fiber roof, vented bulge hood, and a sporty rear spoiler, Brin Naub® suede-trimmed sport seats with red accents, and a launch-year-exclusive Morizo signed shift knob.
Both grades will come equipped with an all new Toyota Multi-Media System with touchscreen. Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0 (TSS 3.0) system will also come standard.
Pricing will be announced later this year.
Race Inspired Engineering
In 2007, Akio Toyoda wanted to expand the company’s use of racing in its car development activities. As a starting point, he chose to compete in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the grueling endurance race held on the famous track winding through the German forest. It was an unofficial Toyota activity at the time, so the team was called GAZOO Racing and was made up of employees, including Akio Toyoda driving under the alias of Morizo.
With a limited budget, the newly-named team entered the race with two secondhand Altezzas. Despite adversity, both cars finished the challenging race, and a new era of Toyota motorsports and product development, one founded on a spirit of challenge aimed at instigating change, began.
As TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s first wholly developed and manufactured model for the North American market, the GR Corolla carries this spirit forward.
With professional drivers, experts, and Morizo at the wheel, GR Corolla was tested repeatedly at some of Japan’s leading circuits, including Fuji Speedway, Suzuka and Tsukuba Circuit. In addition, the GR team carried out heavy duty dirt and snow driving with a Japanese Rally Championship driver. No road was left unturned in the process, so engineers and technicians could sharpen acceleration and control worthy of the GR name.
To help meet the performance goals for the GR Corolla, Toyota has established a dedicated GR Factory at its production facility in Motomachi, Japan. It’s the birthplace of legends such as the Lexus LFA and Supra A80 and is now home to the first GR production line, where GR Corolla and GR Yaris are precision built.
Instead of the traditional conveyor system, the body and assembly lines comprise several different cells connected by automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) rather than the conveyors featured in conventional car plants. This fully flexible method of working, with many manual assembly techniques, enables precise body and suspension alignment, with variations in vehicle dimensions and weight kept to a minimum.
Being built by experts means that the assembly of each GR Corolla takes longer than a conventional mass-produced car. The production line has been streamlined for performance, with elements such as body alignment and weld checks to ensure that each GR Corolla is built with meticulous care and attention.
Toyota Gazoo Racing has brought together highly skilled technicians from throughout the company to work on the GR Corolla. This team not only assembles every GR Corolla but also contributes to the technical skills of workers at other Toyota facilities. It’s a team structure that’s part of the overall GR mission at Toyota, developing people, driving fans, and making ever better cars.
The GR-FOUR System
With all TOYOTA GAZOO Racing sports cars firmly rooted in motorsports, it only makes sense that the GR Corolla’s drivetrain was born from the rigors of rally racing.
At the heart of the new GR Corolla is the GR-FOUR All-Wheel-Drive system, Toyota’s first sports all-wheel-drive system in over 20 years. Developed in collaboration with the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team and honed by WRC drivers, it delivers exceptional levels of traction and control with engineering designed to optimize drive power to each wheel, while also being simple and lightweight.
Made for rally, the GR-Four system is designed for a variety of conditions. Whether the driver is looking to adjust performance for dirt, rain, or snow, or just in the mood for a different feel, the GR-Four system offers settings to match.
With the twist of a dial, GR Corolla can adjust four-wheel drive performance to fit the driver’s needs. For every-day situations, drivers can set a front/rear torque distribution of 60:40; for a more sport setting, balance can shift to the rear, with 30:70 distribution for a fun-to-drive quality on winding roads and circuits; and for maximum stability a 50:50 setting can be used for fast, competitive track driving on circuits or special stages. In each mode, the torque balance will automatically adjust in response to the driver’s inputs, vehicle behavior, and road or track conditions.
The GR Corolla Circuit Edition is also equipped with front and rear Torsen LimitedSlip Differentials (LSD) hich offer enhanced cornering performance and grip with control of left and right-hand drive torque distribution on the front and rear axles. Front and rear LSD is available as part of the Performance Package on the Core grade, with AWD open differentials standard.
Revolutionary 3-Cylinder Turbo Engine
For GR Corolla, we took the same turbocharged G16E-GTS powerplant used in the GR Yaris and boosted its output. This compact-yet-powerful three-cylinder engine has increased power for GR Corolla thanks to improved engine exhaust efficiency thanks to a 3-piece muffler with valve capped off with brushed stainless steel tips. This design reduces exhaust pressure and outside noise, which are essential to backpressure performance.
The G16E also benefits from motorsport technologies that maximize performance, including multi-oil jet piston cooling, large-diameter exhaust valves and a partmachined intake port. Displacing 1,618 cubic centimeters, it produces a maximum power of 300 hp and 273 pound-feet of torque.
Compact and lightweight, the DOHC 12-valve engine features a single-scroll ballbearing turbo that’s matched to a 6-speed intelligent manual transmission (iMT) with rev-matching engineered to accommodate high torque levels. The turbocharger is integrated in the exhaust manifold, reducing weight, while control of wastegate bypass gases is used to improve the catalyst’s warm-up efficiency. Combustion is fed by Toyota’s D-4S direct and port fuel injection system, which operates at high pressure for maximum fuel dispersion and efficiency.
Wide, Rigid, and Designed to Handle
To achieve control worthy of the GR badge, a highly rigid body was specially constructed for GR Corolla. Based off the GA-C platform, it produced handling performance that rewards the driver. Enhanced rigidity comes from significantly more weld points in the frame, particularly to strengthen joints. Further gains are made through extensive use of structural adhesive, increasing the joint rigidity between component parts.
The front suspension is a MacPherson-type strut design that offers both light weight and firm handling, maximizing the tires’ grip potential. Made up of circuittuned coil springs, shock absorbers, and stabilizer bars, the front suspension is designed to deliver all the engine’s power to the road and provide optimum cornering capability on all surfaces. The rear suspension uses a double-wishbone type multilink system that accommodates the AWD system’s goal of maximum agility and stability.
Wide tread tires ensure high cornering performance while maintaining the excellent high speed stability of the GR Corolla’s 103.9-inch long wheelbase. It wears Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires 235/40R18 on the both grades and comes equipped with 18-in. gloss-black 15-spoke cast alloy wheels on the grades.
Braking power comes from opposed, fixed-caliper disc brakes with 14 x 1.1-inch ventilated and slotted rotors outfitted with 4-piston aluminum calipers on both grades, the Circuit Edition caliper is red painted with GR logo. At the rear, 11.7-in. x 0.7-in. ventilated rotors with 2-piston aluminum fixed-caliper disc brakes with redpainted calipers and GR logo are standard on the Circuit Edition.
Lightweight and Aerodynamic
Throughout the GR Corolla there has been a focus on saving weight to maximize the performance potential, without compromising strength and safety. This rigorous approach is particularly evident in the car’s construction, with extensive use of lightweight metals and materials used in key areas.
On the Circuit Edition, the roof is made of a forged (rather than woven) carbon sheet molding compound. This lightweight, highly rigid material keeps off the ounces that steel roof would bring and helps lower the car’s center of gravity. Aluminum is used for the hood and front door panels, with light and strong hightensile steel in critical areas to ensure the car’s structure can safely absorb and dissipate impact forces.
For the best possible aerodynamic performance, GR Corolla’s nose ascends to a tapering roof line. Wind flow is directed onto the rear spoiler to generate extra downforce. As with rally cars, the shaping of the front and rear canards and GRFour stamped lower rockers efficiently channel airflow down the sides of the vehicle. Hood, fender, and rear bumper ducts, and a flat underfloor reduce drag, add downforce, and improve stability.
Rally Ready Hot Hatch Style
The wide stance and broad hatch exterior design of GR Corolla projects a strong, attack ready style with its black GR badged functional matrix grill. Flanked by functional air ducts on both sides, the front grille on the Circuit Grade comes in gloss-black and features integrated LED fog lamps. Auto on/off LED headlamps and LED DRLs are standard on both grades.
Both grades feature wide front and rear fender-flares. The Circuit Edition features a bulge hood with functional gloss-black air ducts. The Carbon Fiber roof on the Circuit Edition is matched with a matte-black roof mounted shark fin antenna. The Core Grade features an aluminum hood with a color-keyed roof and matching shark-fin antenna. Gloss-black heated power outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, gloss-black window molding, and black GR Corolla badges are standard on both grades.
At the rear, both grades feature a rear lower bumper cover with functional air vents, for an extra touch these vents are gloss black on the Circuit Edition. The tapering of the roof and rear pillars are complimented by a high mounted matte-black rear spoiler on the Circuit and a gloss black rear-lip spoiler on the Core Grade. The wide track and flaring of the rear wings emphasize the car’s wide and low silhouette.
Race Inspired Interior
The design of the GR Corolla’s interior reflects the car’s performance, particularly around the driver’s cockpit.
Incorporating the feedback of professional drivers, a GR Full TFT meter was newly developed with a 12.3-inch color Multi-Information Display (MID) that has a GR meter with 4WD mode, turbo pressure, gear position indicator, and tachometer. The brightly lit display is designed for easy-viewing in any condition and even features a start-up GR animation.
The shift lever has a shortened stroke for a quick throw between gears. Positioned where the driver’s arm is naturally lowered from steering, the action is light with short shift strokes, adding to the performance quality. GR Corolla uses a pull type mechanical parking brake.
The Circuit Edition’s interior is finished in black with red trim details around the door handles, center console, steering wheel and side air vents, and the Core Grade is finished with black and silver details.
Brin Naub® suede and synthetic leather-trimmed sport seats with red stitching, red mesh inserts, and GR badged headrests; 6-way adjustable driver’s seat with seatback pocket; 4-way adjustable front passenger seat with seatback pocket are standard on the Circuit Edition. Fabric sport seats with gray stitching and GR badged headrests; 6-way adjustable driver’s seat with suede sheet seatback pocket; 4-way adjustable front passenger seat with seatback pocket are standard on the Core.
Automatic climate control, power windows with one-touch auto up/down, and heated front seats and steering wheel standard on Circuit Edition. Heated front seats and steering wheel are available with the of Cold Weather package option on Core Grade.
A GR leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic sport steering wheel with audio, MultiInformation Display, Bluetooth® hands-free phone and voice-command controls comes standard on the Circuit Edition. For an added touch, a “Morizo” signed shift knob comes exclusively on the launch year Circuit Edition.
Standard on both grades is a push button GR engine start/stop button, aluminum sport pedals, two USB charging ports, one 12V auxiliary power outlet, lighted foot wells, front console tray, and rear console box. Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging with full charge indicator light is standard on the Circuit Edition and available as part of the Technology package on the Core Grade.
The all-new Toyota Audio Multimedia system will come standard on all GR Corollas. Featuring an 8-inch touchscreen, the system offers an improved user experience thanks to new sight, touch, and voice activation. With Intelligent Assistant available through Drive Connect*, simple phrases like “Hey Toyota” awakens the system for voice-activated commands to search for directions, find POIs, adjust audio controls, change the cabin temperatures and more.

Over the last few months, a surprising saga has played out in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man. Hit creators including Zeb Wells, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar, Kelly Thompson and Patrick Gleason have brought readers the BEYOND ERA which saw Peter Parker out of commission after a disastrous battle and his clone, the fan-favorite Ben Reilly, taking over as Spider-Man under the control of the mysterious Beyond Corporation. The BEYOND ERA reached its climactic ending in “Amazing Spider-Man #93,” which saw Ben Reilly perish after a devastating battle with Peter Parker. But all is not as it seems… Enter Chasm, Ben Reilly’s new identity—and Peter Parker’s latest archenemy.
After 19 issues of hard truths and soul searching, Ben is more aware than ever that something within is missing. Consumed with the idea that Peter is the source for all that’s gone wrong in his life, Ben will now swing through the Marvel Universe as Chasm—a fierce and deeply personal new Spidey foe just in time for Spider-Man’s new era, kicking off next month in Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.‘s “Amazing Spider-Man #1!”
“’Amazing Spider-Man #93’ brings us to the end of the mega-arc the Beyond Board worked so hard on. And though this story is coming to an end, Ben Reilly’s journey is just beginning,” Wells promised. “Keep reading Amazing Spider-Man to find out if Peter can pull Ben back from the Chasm.”
“Get ready to get to know the most terrifying new member of Spidey’s Rogues Gallery,” Editor Nick Lowe said. “Part of the point of ‘Beyond’ was the creation of Chasm and we have HUGE plans for the artist formerly known as Scarlet Spider, so keep your eyes peeled Web-Heads.”

From April 14 to August 28, 2022, the mahJ will present a new exhibition titled: Marcel Proust. On his Mother’s Side. Marking the centenary of Proust’s death, the exhibition explores the personality and work of Marcel Proust (1871-1922) who, after her death in 1905, had a desire to “do something that would have pleased mother.” Featuring 230 paintings, drawings, prints and documents, the exhibition includes major works by Monet (one of his favorite painters), Rodin, Bonnard and Vuillard, as well as a proof of Swann’s Way. The exhibition is the first in France to focus on Proust through the lens of his relationship with Judaism. The exhibition illustrates the author’s social life and opinions, while also exploring the similarities between the structure of Proustian manuscripts and that of the Talmud, as well as focusing on the Jewish characters in In Search of Lost Time.
From June 2 to December 31, 2022, visitors will be able to view works by photographer Jacques Perez in the exhibition Pilgrimage to Djerba. Photographs by Jacques Perez, 1980. The island of Djerba in southern Tunisia is home to one of the oldest and most famous synagogues in the world, the Ghriba. The community around this synagogue, which dates back to the Middle Ages, was documented by Jacques Perez in 1979-1980 in a series of colorful photographs that illustrate their ancestral traditions. Perez, now 90 years old, was born in Tunis in 1932, the son of a Tunisian Jewish father and a German mother; throughout his storied career in photography, he focused exclusively on Tunisia and its inhabitants.
The mahJ also continues to host tours of the Marais neighborhood to help visitors discover the Jewish history, food and culture that surrounds the museum. The experience starts with a tour of the permanent collection followed by a walk around the neighborhood, led by an English-speaking guide. Upcoming tours will be held on June 19, August 7 and August 22, 2022.

Pirelli will supply P Zero Elect tires as original equipment to the new BMW iX—a 100% electric SUV from the renowned German car manufacturer—for the xDrive50 version and the sportier M60. P Zero Elect tires are available for the BMW iX xDrive50 version in 255/50R21 109Y XL and 275/40R22 107Y XL sizes, with the latter size also available for the sportier M60 version of the German SUV. All of these tires are marked with a star on the side to indicate that they have been specially developed for BMW as part of Pirelli’s ‘perfect fit’ philosophy, which also includes a 22-inch BMW iX tire with more grip than the other two: made for maximum performance. This tire has an “I” on the side, in addition to the star marking. Pirelli’s presence as original equipment for the latest generation of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles is growing thanks to these latest homologations, featuring tires equipped with the Italian firm’s Elect technology package. Elect tires, such as the P Zero developed for the German all-electric flagship, distinguish themselves thanks to their supreme driving comfort with contained road noise as well as immediate grip, a long-range and safety-focused design. The intense development dedicated by Pirelli to the BMW iX underlines the Italian firm’s commitment to design specific tires for electrified cars, BEVs or plug-in hybrids. These products are created from the beginning to enhance the individual characteristics of electric cars, as denoted by the ‘Elect’ marking on the sidewall of the tire itself.
Tires for Superior Battery Range
The Pirelli P Zero Elect tires developed for the BMW iX focus on low rolling resistance, to allow the car to travel for more miles after a charge. The specific profile of the tire also influences the mileage, thanks to its superior aerodynamics compared to the standard P Zero. The external profile has been modified to ensure that the tire protrudes less, reducing aerodynamic turbulence while improving overall efficiency, without sacrificing adequate rim protection. The embedded lettering on the side of the tire is just as distinctive, hollowed into the sidewall rather than standing out in relief.
Silence and Comfort
Particular attention is paid to comfort for BMW iX drivers, with the dedicated Pirelli P Zero Elect tires also equipped with PNCS (Pirelli Noise Cancelling System) technology, which reduces road noise. PNCS technology consists of a specific sound-absorbing material placed inside the tire, which dampens the acoustic vibrations that would otherwise be transmitted into the car, with a consequent reduction in road noise. The tire structure has also been optimized to cope with the considerable weight of this 100% electric zero-emission vehicle, designed to offering optimal levels of driving comfort in all road traffic conditions.

Half a century ago in 1972, in the watchmaking heartland of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Gucci Swiss Timepieces presented the world with a new horological design proposition—watches combining unparalleled Swiss technical know-how with the best in Italian design. In 2021, Gucci made its long-awaited debut in high watchmaking with a series of Swiss-made designs showcasing technological flair, elevated materials, and unique decorative artistry. Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of Gucci Swiss Timepieces, the House celebrates its next bold step into this mesmerizing universe.
In 2022, Gucci presents its second high watchmaking collection at the Gucci Wonderland event in Geneva. The mood of this kaleidoscopic collection is inspired by a magical fairground, where the most refined watchmaking complications appear alongside rainbow-like gems and celestial wonders. Entering this enchanted universe is like being catapulted onto a thrilling series of roller-coaster rides. Three new Gucci-designed watch movements are revealed:
Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon: With its impossibly sleek, 8mm-thick case and captivating see-through dial, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon arrives with a new Gucci-exclusive caliber flying tourbillon. Because the watch is designed around movement, it creates a fantastic illusion of the mechanics floating above the brushed and polished titanium bridges that cross the base of the dial. With skeleton hands adding a subtle layering effect, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon is a feat of craft, style, and extraordinary skill, announced by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. This complication regulates timekeeping while its sparse technical design adds a contemporary, decorative touch. Created in 100% recycled gold—in white and yellow bracelet variations—and in slate-grey titanium with a rubber strap, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon becomes a retro-futuristic time machine for the wrist.
G-Timeless Planetarium: A pioneering addition to the high watchmaking genre, with its halo of 12 princess-set gemstones circling the dial, the G-Timeless Planetarium shines a precious light on time’s ever-changing view. It also conceals a showstopping power: the gem-set wheel is activated at the touch of a button, rotating around the dial in a gala of light. This delightful on-off control is made possible by a groundbreaking invention: the Dancing Hours Flying Tourbillon, a new Gucci-exclusive caliber with a hypnotic diamond star at its center. The arrow-shaped watch hands pay homage to high watchmaking’s heritage of fine technical detail, while each turn of the dial is a playful reminder of Gucci Swiss Timepieces’ dynamic fusion of new technology and timeless Italian style. The G-Timeless Planetarium is offered in white, rose, or yellow-gold variations with its rotating wheel of green tsavorite, blue tanzanite, or yellow beryl gemstones.
G-Timeless Moonlight: Gucci takes the carnival of time to the skies with the G-Timeless Moonlight. On the dial, a beautifully decorated moon waxes from a gleaming silver crescent to a pearlescent whole before beginning its celestial journey all over again. Created around the new, Gucci caliber GGV838.MP, the sheer technological precision of the G-Timeless Moonlight allows it to dictate its own time, following the 29.5-day lunar month. A feat of high watchmaking excellence, this timepiece only needs to be adjusted every 360 years. It is presented in pink gold and white gold, with a natural meteorite dial, where fairground planets spin and stellar diamonds shine.
G-Timeless Dancing Bees
In 2022, Gucci presents new diamond-set additions to its family of G-Timeless Dancing Bees tourbillon timepieces. In homage to historical en-tremblant jewelry styles, where jewels were exquisitely engineered to move in rhythm with the wearer, 12 bees shimmer around the diamond-set dial as the wrist moves. Experimenting further, master craftsmen have heightened the natural, glossy sheen of two rare opal varieties—pink and green—to form rectangular ‘bricks’, from which they have created a miniature chevron pattern on a mother-of-pearl dial. The natural markings of the opals render each dial design unique, while the mirrored caseback allows a personal message to be engraved. Each G-Timeless Dancing Bees marquetry edition is presented either in white-gold and yellow-gold bracelet or in alligator straps variations.
50 Years of Visionary Watch Design
To celebrate 50 years of Gucci Swiss watchmaking, Gucci Wonderland presents, for the first time, a journey through five unparalleled decades of Italian-born, Swiss-made design. For the very first time, the House has assembled a treasure-trove of modern-era watch creations, from the curious desk-clocks and watch diaries of the 1950s, to the handbag watches of the 1960s and semi-precious stone bangle watches of the 1970s. The golden ‘floating’ penny-dial watches of the 1980s, with circular dial designs in the House’s red and green palette with luxurious lizard leather straps, are a strong reminder of how, through every era, Gucci has seamlessly translated its classic fashion motifs into stylish watch designs. Iconic equestrian symbols, for instance, appear through decades of Gucci watch design in various creative guises. The futuristic 1990s steel watches, some with diamond-encrusted ‘G’ cases, illuminate the House’s pioneering move into fashion watches created with precious decoration and technical artistry. This very special Geneva exhibition underlines the Florentine luxury House’s visionary influence on watch design, from 1970 to the present day.
Three new 30mm Gucci 25H quartz models are offered: stainless steel, stainless steel and gold plated, with a dazzling diamond dial design.
Also revealed are two gender-neutral Gucci 25H glass dial designs in 38mm quartz variations. Whether in turquoise-blue or pink glass, each dial is designed to light up the wrist with a ray of opalescent color that changes tone with the light.
Another dynamic, color-coded Gucci 25H design blends pink, blue, and green aluminum with a pink-brass dial. The caseback also reveals a very special touch—the Gucci exclusive caliber decorated with a special wave pattern.
The G-Timeless with bee motif arrives in new editions, in 32mm and 38mm dial varieties, with a quartz or automatic movement and an 18kt yellow-gold, steel, or bi-metal case. The subtle dial decoration is offset by vibrant material mixes so that light reflects across the metal finishes. Designs include sun-brushed silver and gold dial options, as well as pink lacquer and black onyx dials. The black onyx dials form a dramatic, semi-precious backdrop of 15 golden bees, while the sun-brushed golden dials are accented with harmonious yellow-gold bee motifs. Case and strap variations include all-steel, all-yellow-gold, or bi-color yellow-gold and steel. Each dial is emblazoned with Gucci bees.
A seriously sporty timepiece, the Gucci Dive is reinvented with bio-based materials, housing a Swiss automatic movement with 200m water resistance. Three new designs are presented, each with a case and strap in a new rubber-like material created from plant substances including oil and corn. The Gucci Dive is offered in matte white, aquamarine, and natural moss green.
In 2022, the signature Grip appears with a highly contemporary yellow-gold PVD dial case, in 27 or 38mm. With its warm, 1970s vibe heightened by an elegant black alligator strap, this new iteration blends eras of style.

As of late, 360 Magazine, had the opportunity to sit down with AeroMobil’s Chief Commercial Officer, Karl Hermanns, to discuss the first ever vehicle to fly and drive, the AeroMobil 4.0. The 360 team witnessed its beauty in-person and sat in the two-passenger cockpit whilst asking all the burnings questions that would be flying through one’s head. No pun intended.
Coming from the luxury brand and art space, Hermanns, was recently onboarded to strategize the launch plans and release for later this year. Currently in the soft launch phase, the world can expect the Aeromobil to be available for pre-order later this year and delivered to the first customers in 2024. With hundreds of hours of flight testing, the prototype is currently in Europe.
“We’ve all seen flying cars in movies and Science-Fiction for years and years. It’s finally real and will be in the sky two years from now… it’s an engineering miracle,” Hermanns pointed.
The 4.0 model number attached to the name stems from the 4th iteration of design for the craft – it’s been in development for about ten years. Each iteration has advanced the aerodynamics, technology and overall flight experience. For hundreds of years, it’s been impossible to get the science right but the engineering team, based in Europe, have solved travel hybridity for the first time. An engineer from the team was on-site and explained that the hardest challenge was getting the weight and proportions right of the two-ton beast to ensure proper takeoff when thinking of adding two passengers, fuel and baggage.
From an opening glance, the model screams Back to the Future. With wings spanning a total of thirty feet, the AeroMobil was the hottest attraction for guests wandering the Petersen Automotive Museum. The invention is fully automated with the wings folding into the body of the vehicle in under 90 seconds. It’s similar to those of a bird or insect the way it functions. It’s twenty feet in length and slender look may have a driver intimated at first, when in actuality, it’s size is comparable to that of an F-150 or Escalade. It’s worth noting that a four-seater version is also in design meant to be used as a ride-sharing service. Call it a “flying Uber” if you will, measured at an untapped 70 billion dollar market.
The vehicle wasn’t designed to compete with hyper cars at lightning speeds but for the intended use of traveling between land and air. Top driving speed is set at 100mph while flying spews a solid 160mph and 300 horsepower. With a range of 320 miles driving and 460 miles flying, passengers can minimize travel time and compete full trips with the one fuel up.
Comparatively, fully electric flying vehicles might be coming the market soon, but as of now they are less far along in terms of milage range. eVTOL (Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing) vehicles have a subsequently shorter flying distances of ten miles or so at a time, due to batteries weighing down the aircraft. The AeroMobil can be fueled at any normal gas station and only requires a 400 yard ramp for takeoff and landing. Talk about conveniency when saving more time driving all day, beating out traffic, and even dealing with delays at the the airport!
A light aircraft private pilot’s license is required to fly. Forty hours of training are required to get said license. A massive portion of the ten thousand landing strips are under utilized but are open to the public, plus infrastructure that’s already built. The AeroMobil will be priced at approximately two million USD.
A show model is currently available for viewing at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles. Watch the commercial at the following link.
