LIDS LAMAR VALLEY

Lids latest collection, “Lamar Valley” includes the brand’s newest New Era x MLB colored undervisor hat.

Designed by Lids’ president, Britten Maughan, the “Lamar Valley” collection is inspired by Maughan’s experience of growing up on the western side of the United States and visiting the natural beauty of our nation’s parks and landscapes like the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone National Park.

Maughan worked with a New Era designer to creatively curate the Lamar Valley colorway, making every detail and decision intentional. The overall hat tells a story and has underling meanings behind the cap’s undertones. The team logos are outlined in blue, signifying the river that flows through the valley. If familiar with Lamar Valley, you know the river isn’t prominent from every view, unlike the earth tones – the browns and greens – that can be seen all-year round. The collection also includes the limited edition MiLB hat, The Buffalo Bisons.

CASIO | The PRW6900YL-5

Casio America, Inc. is excited to expand its PRO TREK line of outdoor timepieces with the PRW6900YL-5.

The PRW6900YL-5 features an octagonal metal bezel with sharply tapered edges reminiscent of a wood axe. At the 10 o’clock position, the inset dial indicator hand recalls the blade of a camping knife, and the second-hand features the orange gradation of campfire flames. The base of the dial has a textured cast iron-like surface evoking a Dutch oven, bringing together a design that epitomizes all there is to love about bushcraft.

In keeping with the PRO TREK commitment to be “One with Nature”, the PRW6900YL-5’s case and resin case back are made with biomass plastics, an eco-friendly, green material. The newly developed flame-retardant leather band of the PRW6900YL holds up even when hit by flying sparks.

LOUIS VUITTON Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle watch via 360 MAGAZINE

Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle

New to the scene is the ultra elegant and feminine Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle. And, as first introduced earlier this month on acclaimed actor and director, Bradley Cooper, the Tambour Watch’s Twentieth Anniversary is commemorated by the limited edition of 200 pieces, and a custom-made trunk in Monogram canvas.

Adorned with white mother-of-pearl in 2019, the Tambour Slim makes a comeback this year in a sophisticated, new iteration. This timeless, refined model pays tribute to the iconic Monogram flower, as first fashioned by Georges Louis Vuitton in 1896. Encrusted with brilliant-cut diamonds, the silvery blossoms sparkle subtly on the black-lacquered dial.

Enlightened by a diamond-set bezel, this feminine collection is available in two different diameters, 28 and 33 mm. It is equipped with a quartz movement and the innovative, Louis Vuitton-patented system of interchangeable straps, making it possible to infinitely customize the watch, by choosing from a selection of over one hundred different designs. Offering two white mother-of-pearl versions, this collection is enriched with black lacquer dials with stunning silver accents, and is set with diamonds. The dial is devoid of hour markers to accentuate the sophistication and femininity of the timepiece. Playing with contrasts, this watch is magnified with a diamond-set bezel: a creation defined by femininity and elegance. Other features include an interchangeable black alligator strap fitted with Louis Vuitton’s patented system, 50 Meters of water resistance, an ardillon buckle, and a stainless steel case.

ULYSSE NARDIN’S NEW VERSION

Ulysse Nardin celebrates the Geneva Watch Days with two new versions of its LADY DIVER 39 mm and BLAST TOURBILLON 45 mm timepieces, both inspired by the iridescent rainbow colors of silicium. Always a pioneer, in 2001 the brand was the first watchmaker to introduce a timepiece with silicium escapement components – and the Freak was born, alongside contemporary watchmaking. Since then, Ulysse Nardin has incorporated this metalloid into several of its movements, including the BLAST TOURBILLON’s caliber UN-172 and the LADY DIVER’s caliber UN-816. Inspired by the shimmering colors of this revolutionary material, the bezels of these two new models are adorned with purple, green, blue or pink gemstones that sparkle in the sunlight for a “rainbow” effect. Usually associated with cheerfulness and joy, this multicolored trend guarantees a young and fun style.

BLAST RAINBOW

The BLAST bears its name well. The skeleton “X” dial’s complex and geometric forms on this imposing 45mm timepiece with a micro-rotor in platinum placed at 12 o’clock simply blow-up traditional watch design. To soften the look, a total of 50 rubies and sapphire baguette gemstones adorn the bezel and the indexes of this BLAST RAINBOW, making this timepiece sexy and powerful on any wrist.

Water resistant to 50 meters and driven by an automatic flying tourbillon, the BLAST is powered by the UN-172 caliber movement with Silicium technology (escapement wheel, anchor & balance spring) enclosed in a black DLC titanium case and sealed with a black ceramic polished and sandblasted upper case. This limited edition of 50 timepieces promises 72 hours of power reserve and comes with a waterproof velvet rubber strap or a black alligator strap, together with a black DLC titanium and black ceramic self-deploying buckle, at a price of 85’000 CHF.

LADY DIVER RAINBOW

The new LADY DIVER RAINBOW – in black or white – is the next generation of the 2019 LADY DIVER but with eye-catching, dazzling decorative touches. Forty stones (ruby, aquamarine, topaz, tsavorite and sapphire) are set on the concave unidirectional bezel of this new watch, catching the light no matter how deep the dive. Eleven diamonds serving as indexes increase the scintillating effect of the watch and bring a touch of elegance to this sublime diving watch.

The young and sportive 39mm LADY DIVER RAINBOW, water resistant to 300 meters, is the incarnation of a utilitarian timepiece designed to reach the depths of the world’s oceans with beauty, grace, and the highest functionality. The UN-816 automatic movement with Silicium technology is the beating heart of each DIVER watch, keeping track of the hours, minutes, seconds, and date.

Both white and black LADY DIVER RAINBOW models come in a limited edition of 300 timepieces each on a white or black structured rubber strap, at a price of 12’900 CHF.

SILICIUM REVOLUTION

Since the early 2000s, silicium has become the most promising material for watchmaking. Anthracite with bluish metallic reflections in its raw state, the silicium has exceptional properties: totally non-magnetic, it is light and elastic without ever deforming. Its high resistance to corrosion and its durability do not alter with time. It requires no lubrication thanks to a silicium dioxide layer that hardens and stabilizes the parts and makes them insensitive to thermal variations. Therefore, Ulysse Nardin uses silicium to manufacture the regulating organs of all its timepieces, including the balance spring.

Sigatec, an affiliate of Ulysse Nardin based in Sion, Switzerland, is specialized in silicium micromechanical components and creates custom-made pieces, with micron-level precision. The silicium used by Sigatec comes in the form of a wafer, a disk about 15 centimeters in diameter and only a few tenths of a millimeter thick, carved out of a silicon crystal ingot, and produced synthetically by smelters. The wafer necessitates a particular process in order to be formed into the desired components, which represents the know-how of Sigatec: the DRIE. The Deep Reactive Ion Etching (DRIE) process is a revolutionary, hybrid technological combination of photography and 3D etching. It has claimed its pole position in watchmaking in just a decade.

The latest model, which celebrates space exploration, comes with advanced technical capabilities like Tough Solar Technology and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping. Styled after the iconic orange suits worn by astronauts, the new model mirrors this famous aesthetic with an all-orange case and band and an American flag adorning the black band loop.

Along with the eye-catching pop of color, the model also includes the astronaut insignia on the lower band and an engraving of an astronaut on the case back. Additionally, the watch dial intertwines black, white, and blue colorways against a positive LCD, and the watch packaging is inspired by the metal launch pad bridge out to the orbiter.

The limited-edition timepiece also features several improved technical characteristics compared to the first two models. Among the new features is Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping, which provides radio-controlled time syncing, allowing the watch to automatically update the time without manual adjustments based on the user’s home-city setting, and Tough Solar Power, allowing the watch to convert power from even the weakest light sources.

The new model also includes G-SHOCK features, including:

ULYSSE NARDIN × 11TH HR

LUXURY SWISS WATCHMAKER ULYSSE NARDIN SETS SAIL WITH 11TH HOUR RACING TEAM

With a shared commitment toward positive impact for ocean health, Ulysse Nardin and 11th Hour Racing Team join forces to promote awareness of climate change and ocean health

 Luxury Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin announces its partnership with round the world offshore sailing outfit, 11th Hour Racing Team, joining the team as Official Timekeeper. Both share an intrinsic connection to the ocean and champion a message of the importance of ocean health for everyone.

Ulysse Nardin recently announced its role as the Official Time Partner of The Ocean Race and now they are excited to support one of the race’s competing teams.

Since its founding in 1846, the brand has historic ties to the maritime world having designed and manufactured some of the world’s most accurate mechanical marine chronometers allowing for precise nautical navigation and exploration. Today, Ulysse Nardin honors this tradition and passion for the world’s ocean seen both in its use of sustainable materials in the contemporary collections and through the brand’s partnerships.

11th Hour Racing Team is the only US team taking part in The Ocean Race 2022-23—billed as the world’s longest and toughest sporting event. With a home base in Newport, Rhode Island, the team has sustainability ingrained at the core of all team operations and the five-strong crew of professional sailors are supported by an international shore crew. The sailors will race their foiling 60-foot race boat, Mālama, 31,700 nautical miles [59,000 kilometers, 36,000 miles] around the world through some of the most inhospitable waters on the planet including the notoriously tough Southern Ocean, inspiring positive action for long-lasting change for ocean health.

Patrick Pruniaux CEO of Ulysse Nardin North America, said, “11th Hour Racing Team is the ideal partner for our brand. Like us, they are explorers. We strive to innovate through use of novel materials that lessen our impact on the environment and 11th Hour Racing Team employs cutting edge technology that proves sustainability can win the race.”

11th Hour Racing Team founder, Mark Towill, commented, “Time is ingrained in everything we do at 11th Hour Racing Team. From the precise second we cross the startline of The Ocean Race, the hundreds of thousands of minutes we will be pushing ourselves and the boat on each leg, to the critical hour we are at in relation to climate change. We are proud to be carrying the marque of a sustainably focused brand such as Ulysse Nardin and look forward to our partnership on this epic race around the planet.”

Ulysse Nardin is the Manufacture inspired by the Ocean, producing advanced timepieces for explorers in pursuit of freedom.

ULYSSE NARDIN – GREAT WHITE

WITH THE NEW DIVER CHRONOGRAPH “GREAT WHITE” 44MM LIMITED EDITION, SAFEGUARDING A FUTURE FOR SHARKS BECOMES ULYSSE NARDIN’S TOP PRIORITY.

In honour of Shark Week and celebrating the launch of its new DIVER CHRONO GREAT WHITE, the Swiss watchmaking Maison raises its devotion to shark conservation around the world to the next level. Ulysse Nardin – a brand that has always had sharks on its radar – proudly announces its increasing support of a new fleet of shark conservation initiatives and partners:

  • Donating 1% FOR THE PLANET, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales of all “shark watches” to support non-profit organizations focused on sharks.
  • Partnering with SHARK TRUST, the leading European shark conservation charity actively working to reform unsustainable and unmanaged fisheries and the supply chain that drive the global consumption of shark products, through legislation and effective conservation actions.
  • And adding a new friend of the brand to the family – a new “Ulysses”-  MIKE COOTS, a Hawaii native who became an amputee when he lost his right leg in a tiger shark attack at 18 years old while bodyboarding. Mike soon realized the importance of preservation and has since become an advocate for saving sharks in an effort to maintain balance in the ecosystem.

Celebrating its new community of “shark” friends and partners including world-renown shark experts, divers, universities, and non-profits, Ulysse Nardin unveils a stunning, shark-themed limited edition of the 44 mm DIVER chrono.

Eyes on!

 Shark week – With their status as the apex predators of the sea and as a largely misunderstood species of marine life, sharks are the avatars and cherished icons of Ulysse Nardin. These majestic top predators are essential to the natural order of marine ecosystems.  Currently their most severe menace is from overfishing and many species are threatened with extinction. Sharks have been an irreplaceable resource for coastal communities in the developing world for centuries. Currently, this unique balance is in danger of being lost forever. Ulysse Nardin is dedicated to the conservation of sharks, one of the emblems of the iconic Swiss watch manufacturer.

DIVER CHRONOGRAPH 44MM GREAT WHITE

LIMITED EDITION

The new Diver 44mm chronograph is encapsulated in a sandblasted and satin-finish titanium case and displays a white, unidirectional, rotating, rubberized bezel. A contemporary and functional model designed specifically for the deep, it is a technical marvel fitted with the Caliber UN-150 self-winding movement; the watch works thanks to revolutionary Silicium technology, pioneered by Ulysse Nardin at its headquarters in Le Locle, Switzerland. It features a 30-minute counter, a 12-hour counter and a small second counter with date, escapement wheel, anchor & balance spring in Sicilicum. Touches of blue and white decorate the grey dial. The lettering “GREAT WHITE” appears below the Ulysse Nardin logo. And the silhouette of the animal is the key signature of the white rubber strap – while the grey of the dial is reminiscent of shark skin. The concave bezel with a domed sapphire glass creates a sleek look designed for those who consider exploring the depths of the ocean a personal challenge. Engineered to withstand 300-meter depth, the new diver watch is designed to inhabit the undersea environment right alongside its namesake. The Diver Chronograph 44mm Limited Edition Great White follows a long tradition of shark-named diver watches including a women’s Great White Diver launched in 2019. It is available in a limited series of just 300 pieces. 1% of the revenues from sales of this watch will be donated to the planet to support via non-profit organizations focused on sharks.

ABOUT SHARK TRUST

The Shark Trust is the leading UK-based shark conservation charity. They work globally to safeguard the future of sharks and rays through positive change. The primary challenge in shark conservation is overfishing – addressing unsustainable and unmanaged fisheries. And the supply chains that drive the global consumption of shark products. A recent review documented that 1/3 of the 1200 shark and ray species are now classified as threatened on the IUCN Red List – the primary cause being the effects of overfishing. The global abundance of oceanic sharks and rays (those living on the high seas) has declined 71% over the last 50 years, primarily due to overfishing. The Shark Trust works actively to reform fisheries – both domestically and on the high seas – pushing for sustainable management and science-based catch limits. HERE

Maurice Lacroix AIKON #tide Benzilla via 360 Magazine

AIKON JOINS #TIDE

Maurice Lacroix continues to spread the word about its ground-breaking watch, the AIKON #tide, releasing a new variant created in conjunction with Thai artist and ML Crew member, Benzilla.

The recently launched AIKON #tide represents a new, responsible approach to luxury watchmaking. Made from ocean-bound upcycled plastic, it takes 17 bottles to make one watch, and its user-friendly packaging means 17 fewer bottles polluting the ocean. The AIKON #tide shares the same attributes as other members of the AIKON family: Swiss quality, precision timekeeping, urban styling, and high perceived value.

His work often juxtaposes swathes of concrete with his distinctive, playful use of color. He adores using numerous hues in his compositions which is quite surprising for a man who is color blind. However, he has overcome this potential obstacle through determination, culminating in his extraordinary success. Indeed, this inspiring story and success epitomize Maurice Lacroix’s mindset, #BeYourAikon.

Benzilla feels a personal connection with the AIKON #tide initiative. The watch brand, in conjunction with #tide, is collecting plastic bottles from the seas surrounding the various islands of Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

The new AIKON #tide Benzilla exploits the use of color to the max. Enlivened with a plethora of eye-popping shades, the 40mm model features a flat sapphire crystal, augmenting readability, and a quartz movement. The dial is adorned with the Thai artist’s 3-eyed character, ‘LOOOK,’ an alien who came from nowhere to live among us. The bezel and crown are dressed in black, while the case body is executed in a vibrant shade of orange. Finally, a funky light blue rubber strap completes the ensemble. Owners of the watch can modify its appearance courtesy of the Easy Strap Exchange system, swapping the strap for an alternative without needing tools.

Stéphane Waser, Managing Director of Maurice Lacroix, remarks, “It is an honor to work with Benzilla, a Thai national and a member of the ML Crew, and it is great to open a new Maurice Lacroix boutique in Bangkok. This is a further example of how we are forging links with this region. Indeed, as part of the AIKON #tide initiative, we are removing plastic waste from the seas surrounding Thailand and beyond, helping to make a difference to the world we all share.”
