The Best Cars for Technology

There are some people that view cars simply as a mode of transport. Then there are other people who love their car and want to have all of the latest features to enjoy. In particular, a lot of those people want the newest and best technology so that their travels can be easy and fun. The tech can be a deal breaker when you are searching for a new pride and joy. If you are someone that loves technology, here are the best cars you can look at for leasing or purchase.

Audi A8

This German automaker never lets you down and it comes with a host of cool features that make driving easy. This includes automated driving features that help with parking, garages and traffic jams. You can still get to your destination on time but with less effort. There is a touch infotainment system for road trips and there is a high-quality satnav to get you there.

BMW 5 Series

BMW is one of the most popular car makes in the world. This means that they do not disappoint when it comes to the latest technology. In particular, they know how to do in-car entertainment.

So, on your car’s display, you can surf Facebook and message your friends and if you enjoy the occasional sports bet, place the odd wager on Unibet Pennsylvania during your travels.

Tesla Model 3

If there is one vehicle that has been gaining a lot of attention recently it is the Tesla Model 3. Of course, this is the latest electric car that everybody wants.

You can do everything from navigate to your next location to play games. There is also Wi-Fi for your passengers to enjoy. We cannot talk about the Tesla Model 3 without mentioning the autopilot modes. This makes driving a lot easier and you can take your hands off the wheel

Kia Ceed

The Kia Ceed is a reminder that you do not always have to spend a fortune to buy a high-tech car. This is one of the most affordable vehicles on our list but it still has some fantastic technology features that you are going to love and use every day.

Rolex Watches are Still the Ultimate Fashion Accessory

Rolex is among the most renowned brands on the planet. It was established in London in 1905 but is now headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. What makes Rolex unique is its unwavering dedication to the niche craft of luxury watchmaking. 

The brand only makes watches, but this has not prevented it from being a sign of wealth and elegance in contemporary culture. This may be attributed to the fact that so many famous personalities have been linked to Rolex watches across time. 

It’s definitely an item that signifies prestige, not just a watch. Maybe this is the rationale for the long-lasting popularity of the company.

What Makes Rolex Special?

You might think Rolex watches are going out of style now, since their only real feature that can also be accomplished via your smartphone. That raises the question, ‘Why are Rolex watches so pricey? When you focus on the lengthy method of making only one Rolex watch, you could start thinking that they’re actually reasonably priced!

The components Rolex requires to create its watches are not used by anybody else in the industry. For most brands of the world, their steel timepieces use mostly 316L, a form of stainless steel, in their manufacturing process. 

Rolex, on the other hand, chooses to use 904L steel for its watches. This form of steel is much more complicated to process than its 316L equivalent, and the production cost is also considerably higher. 

Rolex’s expertise in luxury watches and time-tested knowledge makes it the first company in the world to be able to manufacture its products in this way, and the outcome is a stylish design that rises above its rivals. In addition, the organization has set up a range of testing laboratories to help establish strategies for streamlining and developing its products. 

The watches are constructed using advanced equipment and then finished by human hands to give it an immaculate look. All these considerations contribute to grant Rolex watches a high end starting price as well.

How Much Will a Rolex Cost?

Rolex watches are designed to be luxurious products that will last for decades, and it is no wonder that this model has a high value. The affordable models start at about £5,000, but for antique timepieces and the new styles, you might have to surpass £15,000 to land the watch you like. 

One of the advantages of owning a Rolex watch is that it can be used as a kind of savings. Many models are expected to hang on to their popularity, and some iconic pieces, such as the Datejust or the Daytona, are proven to increase in value. If you are trying to assess the worth of a particular Rolex watch, the first move is to locate its serial and model code. 

Where Should You Buy a Rolex From?

If you’ve chosen to take the plunge to purchase your own Rolex watch, there are a range of choices to consider. If you can manage it, the ideal choice is to order directly from one of the manufacturer’s approved outlets at a full cost. Even so, you can still choose to buy a pre-owned Rolex at a cheaper price.

A highly desired brand, such as Rolex, will have many forgeries and fakes on the market as well, and a new buyer may find it difficult to access the marketplace. 
The easiest approach is to buy from a reliable professional buyer who has many consumer ratings for reputation.  These sellers are experienced in the purchasing and sale of premium products and also have experts available to analyze the commodity so that reasonable value can be calculated. 

In Conclusion

A Rolex can mean a lot to the outside world. The picture of class, reputation, and riches is all that Rolex has to do. What is more significant, though, is the impact it has on you, the wearer. 

It’s really one of the most special and personal things you can buy for yourself, and this timeless watch will never go out of style!

Lexus – “All In”

Sneakerhead, audiophile, fashionista, gamer … these people are “all in” on their passions. In a new marketing campaign breaking today for the Lexus 2021 IS, the automaker celebrates its own obsession: an unapologetically pure sports sedan. Entitled “All In,” the new campaign engages an audience that’s just as unapologetic about pursuing their unique interests. It features influencers and deep, diverse media partnerships.

“The IS customer is our youngest, most fiercely authentic yet,” said Lisa Materazzo, vice president of Lexus marketing. “The marketing campaign, like the new IS, is equally authentic and celebrates those who fully embrace their passions.”

Rather than casting actors, the campaign features eight micro-influencers. The first spot, “Names,” moves quickly through people from different walks of life who introduce themselves by the names they’ve earned—be it sneakerhead, gamer or audiophile.

Another spot, “Vanity Plates,” demonstrates just how far these enthusiasts will go to show off the obsessions that define them.  To ensure a connection with all consumers, unique ads were created to further explore the meaning of “all in” for Asian, Black, Hispanic and LGBTQ markets.

“Names” and “Vanity Plates” will air during primetime, special events and sports including NFL playoffs and NBA. Potential drivers and enthusiasts of Lexus will be able to ask their Google Assistant-ready devices about the new Lexus IS model to learn more about the vehicle’s latest technology, audio, performance and safety features, as well as a link to nearby dealerships. The campaign also includes video, audio, connected speakers, print, social and display.

Lexus is connecting with an audience that embraces their passions fully by providing content that celebrates those who go “all in.”

  • Epic Race. Lexus partnered with MotorTrend for an epic race between race car driver Rhys Millen and downhill skater Josh Neuman at speeds of over 70 MPH on Malibu’s legendary Deer Creek Road. The video is live now.
  •  Travel Influencer. Lexus is partnering with Courageous Studios, CNN’s brand studio, to produce a documentary-style campaign that follows Ugandan-American photographer, self-proclaimed geography nerd and travel expert Jessica Nabongo. The first black woman to visit every country in the world, Jessica’s story unfolds as she approaches her next milestone: seeing every state in the U.S. The campaign will be distributed via CNNgo in February.
  •   Fantasy Football. Last Fall, Lexus worked with Yahoo to create dynamic banners on the Yahoo Fantasy Football web site that leverage the players’ stats to serve custom ads to fans engaging in their passion.

Andrew Evans, London Concours Director, said: “As the London Concours continues to evolve, we’re always looking for ways to develop a show that’s perfectly in tune with our audience’s wants and needs. The message we’ve received loud and clear, both from partners and visitors, is that there’s demand for even more of the luxury, supercar and hospitality elements of the show, which is exactly where we’re focusing for 2021. We’ve always created the London Concours around the idea of an automotive summer garden party and next year, more than ever, London Concours will be a party to remember.”

Q×A with Jerrimiah James

This holiday season, 360 Magazine had the chance to converse with up and coming sustainable designer and entrepreneur Jerry Buckner. Read our interview below, as well as about the brand, based in Atlanta

1. What was your defining moment regarding understanding the impact of the fashion industry on the environment?

My defining moment… After reading the report “A New Textiles Economy: Redesigning Fashion’s Future,” I realized two things; first, I tied success to wastefulness and secondly it didn’t matter what fight I was fighting, gay, black, growing up disadvantaged… none of it mattered if there wasn’t a planet with conditions healthy enough for the good fight to be won. I realized at the end of the day the throne means nothing because winter is coming.

2. What are your thoughts on the rise of the “eco-conscious” shopper? Is it a fad?

I think it’s going to take a complete dismantling and a rise is not the same as an overthrowing. Is it a fad? The better question would be can we afford another fad if it is?

3. Is eco-conscious retail inherently a luxury?

No not at all. When we know better we do better. Moreover, then we are more likely to do what is right. I’ve had the opportunity through my company Jerrimiah James to outfit men and women in pieces that they could otherwise not afford and here is how. When I select pieces from the closets of friends who have the luxury of shopping extensively I share with them the cost paid for these pieces to wind up in their closets unworn. It’s not about guilt its about empowering clients to share for the planet’s sake.

4. How has the Atlanta community responded to the venture?

It could not be better received. I’ve been asked to speak on the radio, participate in panel discussions, held a call to action event and have also gained the support of many Atlanta Influencers. I still have a long way to go before I have catapulted Atlanta to the forefront of the global fashion industry’s sustainability concern, but with continued support from the city in my endeavor to bring a“wear”ness to this issue I am confident I will make the experience of resale and rental a more desirable experience

5. Where do you see yourself and your company in five years?

In the next five years I see myself as a prominent voice and force in circularity in retail as well as an advocate for transparency in fashion, and for policy that does not allow for the creation of a product at the expense of the creator, that is planet earth.

6. Who are your style heroes?

It’s a privilege to wear the clothes, attend the parties, and meet the men and women instrumental in the Fashion culture. I’m grateful. If clothing brings us together then there must be enough minds in this group to solve the problems caused by the production of it. My style heroes are the men and women, shoppers and creative directors, courageous enough to go against the flock. Brands like Stella McCartney, Brother Vellies, Reformation, Grailed, and Toms.

JERRIMIAH JAMES LAUNCHED AS ECO-CONSCIOUS RETAILER AIMING TO SPREAD A “WEAR” NESS 

Buckner, founder of Jerrimiah James, has been in the fashion industry for over 10 years and has navigated the realm of high-end retail, moving within circles of influence and affluence. While outfitting the lifestyles of an upscale clientele including entrepreneurs, high profile actors, actresses, models, music artists and well-known athletes, Buckner gained an acute awareness of the connection between a steady increase in sales of designer garments and the subsequent discarding of those garments. Buckner realized how significantly a “single-use” wardrobe item contributes to the global waste problem. The textile industry, Buckner discovered, uses an incredible volume of non-renewable resources to produce clothing that is eventually lost to landfill and incineration. Additionally, nearly 93 billion cubic meters of water annually and 20% of global industrial water pollution can be attributed to the dyeing and treatment of textile products.

The over-consumption and underutilization of clothing led to Buckner’s founding of Jerrimiah James which creates a new standard for conscientious consumers by providing the opportunity for luxury shopping resale and rental. As a membership resale and rental fashion service, Jerrimiah James caters to Atlanta-based influencers, artists and creatives. This format emphasizes garment sharing through a platform that introduces a meeting of both the minds and style.

“I had never given it thought before and, that was concerning because I find that the things that often cause the most damage are the things that we do thoughtlessly. Our vision of a planet as beautiful as the fashion we wear is a real possibility if we bridge the gap by creating circularity in our use of apparel,” states Buckner. “Circularity is the new black!”

Through this peer-to-peer e-commerce wardrobe platform, Buckner introduces the street fashion individual and environmental enthusiast, an opportunity for consumers to choose the pieces that will make the experience a lasting one and a sustainable solution for the planet.

In 2020 Jerrimiah James was named as a finalist in The Fashion Group International’s 24th Annual Rising Star Awards’ “New Retail Concept” category.

ROLLS-ROYCE LAUNCHES NEW ‘PURSUIT SEAT’ ACCESSORY

ROLLS-ROYCE LAUNCHES NEW ‘PURSUIT SEAT’ ACCESSORY

  • Latest Rolls-Royce accessory reimagines traditional Pursuit Seat for a contemporary world
  •   Embossed Rolls-Royce Leather seat, coloured to match or contrast with the car’s interior
  •   Created with contemporary craft materials including carbon fibre and polished aluminium
  •   Concealed torch bares double-R Badge of Honour

We have applied Sir Henry Royce’s maxim, ‘Take the best that exists and make it better’, to a quintessentially British product. Elevated to Rolls-Royce’s precise and exacting standards yet true to the original concept, the Pursuit Seat has been reimagined for a contemporary world. Our clients can now enjoy the comfort of a Rolls-Royce seat, no matter the activity or where it may lead. 

“We look to create accessories that enhance our clients’ lifestyles. Like every Bespoke commission, each detail of the Pursuit Seat has been minutely considered and meticulously designed, then handcrafted using the very finest materials. The marriage of carbon fibre, polished aluminium and Rolls-Royce leather demonstrates the art of contemporary craftsmanship.”

Matthew Danton, Rolls-Royce Bespoke Designer

The comfort of a handmade leather seat is no longer confined to the interior of a Rolls-Royce motor car, following the release of the marque’s latest Bespoke accessory.

The new Pursuit Seat is a contemporary reimagining of the traditional portable seat, designed by the Bespoke Collective at the Home of Rolls-Royce, in Goodwood, West Sussex. True to the spirit of the original, the Pursuit Seat offers instant, portable comfort in town or country, bringing ease and style to clients’ ever diversified lifestyles. A perfect perch for flying a drone, painting a landscape or simply pausing to take in the view, the Pursuit Seat is the latest accessory designed to enhance the lifestyle experience of Rolls-Royce clients.

Akin to a Rolls-Royce motor car, only the finest materials applied with utmost precision and skill are considered when designing a Rolls-Royce accessory. The Pursuit Seat’s main support is made from carbon fibre and polished aluminium, for an optimal strength-to-weight ratio.  With a fully height-adjustable seat, the accessory is designed with the utmost comfort in mind.

Should one find oneself at an outdoor performance, or even trackside at a motorsport event, a discrete pocket on the outer leather seat provides a safe repository for tickets. In case of extra time, encores and curtain-calls, a slim aluminium torch, finished with the double-R Badge of Honour, is stored in the hinge of the seat, ensuring safe passage back to your motor car.

The seat is made from the finest Rolls-Royce leather and embossed with the Spirit of Ecstasy. Clients can choose from an array of Bespoke colours to match, or contrast, with their car’s interior.

The gently flared aluminium ferrule on the end of the stick provides a solid grip on hard surfaces, while the retractable spike, cleverly concealed within, offers the same security on grass and other soft ground. 

The Pursuit Seat fits perfectly within the Cullinan Recreation Module, reflecting the car’s #EffortlessEverywhere character; its compact dimensions and elegant leather case also allow it to be stowed unobtrusively in any Rolls-Royce motor car.

The Pursuit Seat is available to purchase individually or as a pair through the Rolls-Royce Boutique and at dealerships worldwide. Prices for an individual seat start from $10.081, excluding local taxes.
