Bianchet Tourbillon B1.618 Titanium-Carbon Limited Editions inside 360 MAGAZINE

Bianchet Tourbillon B1.618

Titanium-Carbon Limited Editions

Revealed during Geneva Watch Week at Barton7, Bianchet unveils two new limited editions of the Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork, which unite noble materials with a sporty and technological soul, and reflect the Franco-Italian brand’s statement to define a new essence of style in contemporary watchmaking.

Timeless design principles

By using the iconic Golden Number 1.618 and the work of Italian mathematician Fibonacci as design basis, coupled with a minimalist essential approach to watchmaking construction, Bianchet creates a collection of modern and refined watches, in which beauty and harmony come to the fore. 

Known as “The Divine Proportion,” the Golden Number 1.618, which underlies the beauty of the universe, is found in some of the most harmonious and everlasting creations in art, architecture, music – from Leonardo da Vinci, Le Corbusier, to Debussy – and in nature.

Fascinated by the capacity of the Golden Number, and its timeless design principle, to create beauty and harmony, Bianchet founders have chosen to immortalise its proportions in their horological compositions to build an everlasting legacy.

Italian by design, French in the details 

Created by the Franco-Italian couple Rodolfo and Emmanuelle Festa Bianchet, the brand lays the foundation for its inspiration through its faith in the purity of lines, its passion for contemporary design and architecture, coupled with a pure, intuitive sensibility nourished by Italian roots, and an innate attention to details.

The flowing lines, the sense of colour, the engineering concept behind every Bianchet timepiece are a perfect illustration of the Italian design approach and eagerness to create an object of desire, that is beautiful from its conception to its aesthetic execution. 

The tonneau shape of the case, the openwork design of its movement, the high-end finishing, illustrate the combination of Italian aesthetic sensibility and French sense of detail. Everything within the Tourbillon B1.618 Titanium-Carbon watch expresses refinement, pure lines and a natural sense of balance that makes it a watch of our time for our time.

Crafted with soul

Every Bianchet watch is designed, crafted, produced, and finished by hand entirely in Switzerland, including the strap and buckle. Each person involved in the creation of a Bianchet timepiece, from the founders, designers and craftsmen, to carefully selected partners, put their heart and soul into their work to produce the best of Haute Horlogerie in Switzerland.

The process of making a Bianchet watch is focused as much on quality and aesthetic, as on technical excellence, the main objective being to obtain a perfect balance between form and function. The art of Haute Horlogerie, mainly executed by hand, requires complete undivided attention; a suspended moment in time when the passion of the creator transfers to the object and conveys the highest level of quality.

Conceived for an active lifestyle, the slightly curved carbon & titanium case offers perfect comfort. The union of hand-finished Grade 5 Titanium on the bezel and back, and a light carbon fiber composite with an added titanium powder, which Moiré effect creates unique patterns on every timepiece, is underlined by soft vulcanized rubber seams which bring a sensuous feel. The perfect curves, the lightness and softness sensations, the high-end materials, create a unique horological experience.

Titanium Caliber B1.618

The movement of the Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork is the result of genuine aesthetic research. Conceived from the outset as a skeletonized movement, the Calibre B1.618 is all about a sensation of plumbing untold depths, a feeling accentuated by the curves, whose radii’s progression and interlacing are derived from the Fibonacci sequence. The symmetrical plays off the asymmetrical, in a balance that is natural to the eye, with a harmony that is intrinsic to the Golden Ratio.

Crafted from grade 5 titanium, that only master watchmakers are able to harness, the calibre B1.618 is able to withstand shocks of up to 6000G in all positions. The superposition of titanium arches and curves, in various shades of black, the floating skeletonized flanges which adorn the movement, play with light and transparency to create a sculptural architecture that is both strong and ethereal.


The tourbillon cage, the main plate and bridges, are all crafted from titanium and finished by hand, using mineral sands and natural fibres. Every wheel of the B1.618 gear-train is decorated by hand and coated with rhodium – today the most prestigious and expensive metal on earth.

Contemporary Haute Horlogerie

Thanks to peerless Haute Horlogerie techniques and the use of noble materials, featuring a sporty and technological soul, Bianchet timepiece collection reinterprets mechanical art in contemporary high-horology.

Uniting the sensory, cultural, mathematical, and mechanical, the new Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork Titanium-Carbon limited editions feature a hand-finished case in Grade 5 Titanium on the bezel and back, mixed with a light carbon fiber composite infused with a titanium powder, stylishly signed with two soft colorful rubber seams.

1.618 by Bianchet

Focused on re-engineering a timepiece by applying the Golden Ratio to contemporary watchmaking, Bianchet breaks free from the classical and traditional culture with which the iconic number 1.618 has generally been associated, and applies the Golden Ratio to a modern conception, using the materials, manufacturing techniques and performances of today, in the respect of centuries of high horology know-how.

Limited to 21 pieces each, the new Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork titanium-carbon blue and green editions stand as a modern and timeless testament to beauty in watchmaking, and bring a sporty-chic Haute Horlogerie timepiece to refined watch lovers in search of a unique horological experience.

ROLLS-ROYCE MUSE PROGRAMME

Lineage for a Phantom Zone marks an important milestone in Rolls-Royce’s creative history. The newly commissioned work by artist Sondra Perry, sees Muse, the Rolls-Royce Art Programme’s inaugural award, the Dream Commission, come to fruition. Initiated to advance the medium of moving image art, the Dream Commission has consisted of a two-year process during which leading lights of the artistic world selected Sondra Perry to create an entirely new work. I am pleased to confirm this work will be shown at the prestigious Fondation Beyeler in Switzerland, before travelling to Serpentine, London. On behalf of Rolls-Royce, I congratulate Sondra Perry on this exciting commission, and we look forward to sharing her installation this year.”

Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös.

American artist Sondra Perry joins forces with the Rolls-Royce Art Programme Muse to produce the immersive experience known as Lineage for a Phantom Zone. The program was shaped in support of the Dream Commission, and will open for one full month from February 13 to March 13 at Foundation Beyeler, Switzerland.

One of the most powerful mediums in art today is moving image art. This new program promises to embrace and highlight nothing but that, with film, animation, artificial intelligence and virtual reality pieces incorporated throughout the course. The emergence of social media combined with the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic have altered our world as we knew it, pushing for the rise of the digital age.

In support of the Dream Commission, Rolls-Royce aims to back developing artists in the field of art creation. The establishment of this new platform of moving image artwork expands the realm that we previously knew. With constant visualization of revolutionizing technical and conceptual boundaries, Rolls-Royce fulfills this through their exploration in cooperation with the Dream Commission.

May 2021 Dream Commission winner Sondra Perry works as a moving medium artist specializing in pieces relating to the topics of race, identity and technology. Perry received this honor out of a limited four differing artists in the same field, chosen by a Jury of modern-day art figures. Lineage for a Phantom Zone navigates through Perry’s journey of life highlighting the importance of dreaming. The philosophies of memory, lineage and longing are touched as well, explored through sensory elements that induce the physical, emotional and mental feelings of dreaming.

The 2022 inaugural Dream Commission was made possible through cooperation with Fondation Beyeler, Basel and Serpentine, London.

Maestro Moon Phase Watch

The Maestro Moon Phase gives a new meaning to space & time. A moon phase aperture at six o’clock adds an element of otherworldly romance to this classic watch. Moon phase displays were common on clocks & pocket watches dating back to the renaissance period. Combining art & science, this feature demonstrates watchmaking technical mastery. Moon phase watches show the various phases of the moon, which has always provided time with an orientation. The moon was the first method of telling the passing of months.

A “moon phase” is the lighted area of the moon that is visible as it travels around the earth. Its journey is exactly 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes & 2.9 seconds.

To set your maestro moon phase watch, you must determine the date of the last full moon in the lunar cycle. Once you have the number of days, pull out the crown and twist counterclockwise. Turn once for each day elapsed.

While this measurement of time may be antiquated; it still represents historical craftsmanship & gives this maestro model a whimsical vintage appeal. The combined open balance wheel on this maestro watch reveals the “heart of the movement”. It is just a glimpse into the precision, quality, and technical assembly inside the refined design of a 39.5mm case.

Hopping Ghosts Figurine

Osaka Popstar presents “Hopping Ghosts” the new Ltd Ed. 8″ vinyl figure that comes complete with its own punk-rock theme song!

Chinese vampire mythology takes a spin through the mind of Osaka Popstar creator/frontman John Cafiero-who designed the figure and penned the accompanying single.

Each figure is 8-inches tall, with a removable scroll spell accessory, and comes packaged in a full-color art box with a free download card for the new single “Hopping Ghosts” by Osaka Popstar. The single features John Cafiero (vocals) backed by a lineup featuring Dennis Diken (The Smithereens) Drums, Sal Maida (Cracker, Milk & Cookies, Roxy Music) Bass, and Dean Rispler (The Dictators NYC, Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black) Guitar. Download also includes an alternate “animated instrumental” version (as heard in the animated promo for the new figure line).

What exactly is a Hopping Ghost? Known as Jiangshi in Chinese folklore and kyonshī in Japan, hopping ghosts or hopping vampires are basically a breed of zombie; reanimated corpses dressed in traditional garments from the Qing Dynasty. Rigor mortis has set in so they can only move around by hopping with their arms outstretched! They can’t see using traditional vision. Instead, they sense living creatures by their breath and seek to absorb the life force of the living. They can be stopped with a scroll to the forehead containing a spell written in a mix of ink and blood and led by Taoist priests using bells.

moon d’elle Collection 2

Italian luxury footwear brand moon d’elle is proud to announce the launch of its Capri-inspired Collection 2, arriving April 11, 2022. 

Collection 2 marks the brand’s first foray into sandals, just in time for warmer weather. Founders and sisters Tabitha and Chandra Perkins were inspired by a trip to Capri, which they explored mostly by foot and boat, when designing their latest collection.

The vibrant hues and natural elements of the island found themselves embedded in this collection. From the deep blue hues of the sea to the light blue waters of the grottos, the blush hues of sunsets along sandy beaches, and even the shapes of the sunlight’s rays, the sisters drew inspiration from the natural beauty of the island for the colors, textures, and silhouettes of their latest pieces.

The second collection continues to showcase one of moon d’elle‘s signature traits of mixing different materials and textures to fuse classic with modern elements, such as nappa leather and snakeskin, with a partial lamination in metallic on precious suede with linen fabric. Light-colored earth tones and pastels dominate the newest designs, with fresh materials like transparent mesh, crystal appliques, and glitter rainbow leather.

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE HOLIDAY DISPLAYS LIGHT UP NYC

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE hosted its inaugural holiday window display to honor and rejuvenate imagination and creativity in New York City. The BOMBAY SAPPHIRE holiday windows gain inspiration from the traditional 5th Avenue holiday window displays while serving a greater purpose. The intention of the displays is to revive the creativity that has been deprived of downtown Manhattan since the beginning of the pandemic.

The storefront series was held in SoHo through December 19, in partnership with artist Shavanté Royster, fashion designer Romeo Hunte and NYC dancer Nicole von Arx.

Shavanté Royster

The Brooklyn-based Shavanté Royster is a graphic designer and illustrator, working in the creative industry since 2009. Growing up in a military family, often having to travel during her life motivated Shavanté’s innovation. Through her art, Shavanté often takes inspiration from travel, expressing this through shapes and rich colors. Shavanté’s work is comprised of digital illustration, painting and mixed media.

Romeo Hunte

Romeo Hunte New York is a lifestyle apparel brand designed in NYC for consumers who appreciate sophisticated details. The edgy aesthetic that the collection radiates mixes both feminine and masculine characteristics. Romeo Hunte pieces blend lavish outerwear with contemporary apparel. The Romeo Hunte woman and man can be described as a “dynamic duo” that appreciates the arts and pop culture with a modern flare.

Nicole von Arx

Nicole von Arx (NVA) studied Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop in Geneva, Switzerland at Dance Area, shortly after traveling to New York in 2008 to attend school at the Alvin Ailey School, graduating in 2011. Currently based among NYC and Geneva, NVA is a dancer and choreographer in both dance scenes. NVA has collaborated with the most notable choreographers in New York as a creator, dancer and teacher. Continuing her career, NVA has also worked independently as a choreographer with musicians, film directors and photographers.

The visionaries that were created through the course of the display aimed to fill the empty storefronts with avant-garde ‘windows of art.’ The pandemic has transformed the lives of creatives, small businesses and retail in New York and all over the world. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE worked to ensure that the artistic society would be celebrated and uplifted this holiday season with their holiday displays.

Each window highlighted a winter dreamscape created by artist Shavanté Royster. Both Shavanté and Romeo Hunte’s creative point-of-views joined forces to emulate the holiday magic of 5th avenue. Live models were seen wearing Romeo’s winter apparel upon Shavanté’s backdrops, with performances by NYC dancers.

Romeo’s devoted window showcased people draped in his designs that were created personally for the display. Romeo set the scene of a holiday celebration before a show over cocktails. The garments were designed with inspiration from Shavanté, with the backdrop and fashion coinciding throughout the display.

Romeo spoke on the experience of designing for the holiday displays, stating, “It’s been a joy to work on BOMBAY SAPPHIRE’s Holiday Storefront Series which pays homage to exciting young creative talents everywhere and the tenacity of New York City coming back after the pandemic. It was refreshing to collaborate with artist Shavanté Royster and the dancers as mixed media has always been an important part of my work, so it was cool to build and see the narrative of the holiday windows come to life with them through different facets, such as the dancers wearing some of my designs. I hope everyone can leave the windows feeling a burst of creativity and inspiration for the holidays, and hope for the year ahead!”

NFT Trophy for Goal of Euro 2020

First NFT Trophy for UEFA EURO 2020 Goal of the Tournament presented to Patrik Schick

On 15 October, the first NFT trophy for the UEFA EURO 2020 goal of the tournament was awarded. The award was initiated by Gazprom, an official partner of the tournament, and was handed to the Czech national football team forward Patrik Schick. Russian calligrafuturism artist Pokras Lampas was invited to design the award.

“Gazprom is a modern and technological company. By combining sports, high technology and art, and creating the first sports trophy of this kind, we have drawn a clear parallel with our unique production technology,” Gazprom Department Head and Press Secretary of the Gazprom Management Committee Chairman Sergey Kupriyanov said.

“I found my inspiration in the idea of the project, with the common nine values we share with Gazprom and the “Football for Friendship” Programme. These values, as well as football itself, unite people all over the world”, said the artist Pokras Lampas.

During the award ceremony, the central fragment of the NFT trophy was presented – a black and gold soccer ball with orbits containing the name ​​of Gazprom’s International Children’s Social Programme “Football for Friendship” and its nine values: friendship, equality, justice, health, peace, loyalty, victory, tradition, and honour. Its hologram is located at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

“We welcomed the initiative shown by Gazprom, our long-standing UEFA partner, to bring a fresh outlook on such kinds of awards. Gazprom’s Goal of the Tournament trophy is a unique event in the history of world sports. We look forward to even closer cooperation with Gazprom and realization of new initiatives supporting and developing world football,” – emphasized Guy-Laurent Epstein, UEFA Marketing Director.

“I am very proud to be the first in the history of football to receive this kind of trophy. To be honest, I have never seen something like this before” – said Patrik Schick, the footballer who scored the EURO 2020 goal of the tournament.

Joy Crookes – Skin

BRIT Award nominated singer/songwriter Joy Crookes releases her highly anticipated debut album, Skin.  The 13 track body of work includes previously releases singles, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now,” “When You Were Mine,” “Skin,” and the newest, “Trouble.” Get it HERE via Epic Records/Insanity.

With Crookes credited as an executive producer on the album, alongside the formidable Blue May (Blood Orange), Skin is a hugely personal, game-changing body of work from one of the UK’s boldest and brightest young talents. A collection of songs built and honed throughout her adolescence and into her early twenties, and finished last year within the most turbulent of circumstances, Skin touches on topics such as mental health, relationships, and politics all with grace and sensitivity. Crookes has created a truly special body of work that is both perfectly of the moment, and entirely timeless. Skin’s album artwork is shot by Carlota Guerrero, who has previously worked with Arca, Chloe x Halle, and Solange for all of her imagery for A Seat At The Table.

Already, the album has garnered Crookes a massive amount of acclaim worldwide. British Vogue has dubbed her, “undoubtedly one of the most exciting artists to emerge in the music scene this year,” while The Guardian has praised her “effortlessly nuanced and individual melodic sensibility.” I-D has praised her music as “powerful” while Complex has noted her “soul-stirring vocals,” and Billboard has similarly highlighted her “unfaltering vocal performance.”  The New York Times in a recent profile may have summed up Skin best:  “Crookes offers listeners a nuanced and candid exploration of her multiracial identity. At a time when many conversations about race in the arts and calls for change have only recently begun, Crookes’ commitment to vulnerability in her storytelling has helped her connect with a growing—and loyal—fan base.” 

Up next, Joy Crookes will tour the UK later this year in celebration of the new album; the run kicks off in November in Brighton and extends into next year when she will take the tour to Europe. Full list of dates below.

Beau-Rivage Palace Celebrates 160th Anniversary

The Beau-Rivage Palace Hotel marks its 160th anniversary with a gender revolution.

When Lausanne’s iconic Beau-Rivage Palace Hotel opened its doors on the shores of Lake Geneva in 1861, it was financed by men, managed by men, promoted by men, and staffed almost entirely by men. Women were engaged to make beds and wash dishes. 

What a difference 160 years make. In 2021, the Beau-Rivage Palace’s general manager, its resident celebrity chef, and its chief concierge are all women. And today, it is largely men who clean the hotel’s guest rooms, schlepp the luggage and park the cars.

MAKING HISTORY

The site of many milestone moments in history, it was the Beau-Rivage Palace’s Jacques Tschumi who, in 1893, opened the Lausanne Hotel School in order to train his hotel staff. Now, 128 years later, the École Hôtelière de Lausanne continues to be regarded as the best hospitality school in the world, and many of its students still undergo on-the-job training at the Beau-Rivage Palace. The hotel’s Cinq Mondes spa was totally refurbished in 2020, ready to underscore the hotel’s growing devotion to wellness.

Host to celebrities from Charlie Chaplin and Coco Chanel to Matt Dillon and Christopher Walken, not to mention Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and U.S. presidents, the hotel was and is host to world-changing events as well. Highlights of its history include:

  • 1912 – Signing of the First Treaty of Lausanne (or Treaty of Ouchy) at the Beau-Rivage Palace, ending the Italian-Turkish War
  • 1923 – Hosting of the conference of the Treaty of Lausanne that draws the borders of present-day Turkey
  • 1945 – Coco Chanel lived at the Beau-Rivage Palace from 1945 to 1954 and is buried in Lausanne
  • 1968 – Albert Cohen publishes his novel Belle du Seigneur, inspired by the romantic atmosphere of the Beau-Rivage Palace
  • 2009 – Anne-Sophie Pic, the world’s most celebrated female chef, opens her eponymous restaurant at the Beau-Rivage Palace. In October, Michelin awards the restaurant two coveted stars 
  • 2015 – Nathalie Seiler-Hayez appointed general manager of the Beau-Rivage Palace
  • 2015 – The months’-long negotiations at the Beau-Rivage Palace conclude with the Iran Nuclear Treaty. 

IT’S ALL ABOUT 2021

The celebratory year will feature an array of special events and offerings focusing on wellness and healthy living, including:

On August 27, the now traditional Anne-Sophie Pic Market will offer the opportunity to discover local delights produced by the chef’s partners. A special highlight will be the signing of Michael Berthoud’s book on wild harvesting – Anne-Sophie Pic wrote the preface in homage to their friendship. An “eat and be fit” section will also be presented in collaboration with Jérémy Peltier to respond to the growing demand for health preservation through food, a subject dear to Anne-Sophie Pic’s heart. 

From September 1, the Absolute Infusion Menu will be featured at the Beau-Rivage Palace’s Anne-Sophie Pic restaurant. An exclusive alcohol-free food and drink pairing offers an unprecedented new culinary experience.  

Finally, on November 24th, Anne-Sophie Pic and team will present “1861,” an extraordinary three-course gala menu reinterpreting the dishes served at the Beau-Rivage Palace’s very first dinner, 160 years ago.

ABOUT THE BEAU-RIVAGE PALACE

The Beau-Rivage Palace is situated on ten acres of private gardens, adjacent to Lake Geneva with spectacular views of the Swiss Alps. The property’s two Michelin starred restaurant, Anne-Sophie Pic at the Beau-Rivage Palace, features France’s only female chef with three Michelin stars. Other amenities include two bars and terraces, two tennis courts and a special program for children.

ZÜRICH HOTELIERS TAKE A DIP IN THE LAKE TO KICK OFF SUMMER TRAVEL

As Europe begins opening its borders to international travelers, Zürich Tourism has launched a travel campaign in partnership with 75 of the city’s hotels.

VACCINATED AMERICANS CAN VISIT SWITZERLAND FROM JUNE 28

Seebad Enge Swimming Area

As part of the campaign, Zürich hotels are offering discounted nightly rates, inviting holiday-goers from across Europe (and, as of June 28, vaccinated Americans) to experience the city’s summer season.

In addition to discounted nightly rates, travelers can expect many warm-weather appeals in the Swiss metropolis. These include water activities (such as outdoor swimming pools, paddleboarding on the river, and boat cruising); and active pursuits, such as hiking through the spectacular landscapes accessible just beyond the city limits. Foodies can sample Zürich’s iconic ice cream parlors and lakeside restaurants, and visit the Lindt Home of Chocolate, which opened its doors last fall. 

For more information, please visit the Zürich website

*The price applies for 4 nights in a double room for 2 people, incl. breakfast and VAT. The local tourist fee of CHF 2.50 per person per night is not included, and must be paid locally at the hotel as an additional charge.

Good Vibrations – WonderWorks Myrtle Beach New Exhibit on Earthquakes Named by Teachers during Teacher Appreciation Month

WonderWorks Myrtle Beach has an array of exhibits that help educate people about science. And its latest exhibit on earthquakes called Good Vibrations, opens May 28th. Good Vibrations will spotlight Tuckaleechee Caverns, and how they document seismic activity around the world. The new exhibit was a topic request from educators, so it seemed appropriate that they also name the exhibit.  Teachers are invited to see this exhibit for free during WonderWorks Teacher Appreciation Month celebration.

“This new Earthquake exhibit offers a great opportunity to learn about plate tectonics and all seismic activity,” explains Robert Stinnett, general manager at WonderWorks Myrtle Beach. “We look forward to helping people shake things up and learn this type of science in a fun atmosphere.”

The Tuckaleechee Caverns are home to the most sensitive seismic station on Earth. It detects any and all tectonic movement anywhere in the world. If a country is testing a nuclear weapon or there is an earthquake, it has that information within seconds. Once it does, within 300ths of a millisecond, it relays that important information directly to the U.S. Military; Vienna, Austria; and Geneva, Switzerland. The information is collected 24/7 and is crucial to national security, as well as being able to provide earthquake information.

The exhibit, Good Vibrations will help share the importance of the Tuckaleechee Caverns and what they are doing in monitoring seismic activity. The information in the exhibit meets the educational standards on earthquake and seismic activity, and is one of WonderWorks’ many STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) related learning exhibits.

During the month of May 2021, teachers and all support staff can receive free admission to WonderWorks Myrtle Beach by showing a valid school ID or a pay stub upon entering. Additionally, up to four of their accompany guests can receive 50% off their admission price.

“Teachers are going to love learning about the caverns, and everyone who visits will have a great time,” added Stinnett. “Being able to learn and have fun all in the same place is a beautiful thing. We make it happen every day here at WonderWorks Myrtle Beach.”
