Louis Vuitton Twenty Tambour inside 360 MAGAZINE

Louis Vuitton Tambour Twenty

Join us in commemorating Louis Vuitton’s storied history in watchmaking. The Maison’s Tambour Twenty celebration honors two decades of success with the Tambour watch, as highlighted by 24 of Louis Vuitton’s timepiece creations.

In 2002, the Maison unveiled a watch like none other: the Tambour. Bold and innovative, it was recognisable at a glance with its unprecedented shape, its round case sculpted from a block of metal, and its signature applied horns. This launch opened up the doors to the closed world of watchmaking for Louis Vuitton. Having become a symbol of Louis Vuitton’s watch collection over the years, the Tambour has seen different expressions over time, all the while staying true to the Maison’s DNA: a devotion to the art of travel, technological innovation, and exceptional craftsmanship.

Maurice Lacroix pontos s chronograph announced in 360 MAGAZINE

Maurice Lacroix – PONTOS S

Maurice Lacroix now unveils a new interpretation of its popular model, the PONTOS. Endowed with chronograph, day and date indications, sumptuous details and a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel, the PONTOS S Chronograph bridges two seemingly disparate worlds, elegance and sport, and unites them to form a cohesive design befitting any occasion.

The PONTOS S Chronograph features a sandblasted dial, offered in a choice of two colors: silvery white or dark blue. The hour and minute hands are partially open worked and lined with Super-LumiNova. Facetted and applied indexes denote the hours, shining brightly with just the merest suggestion of light. Positioned between each index and the minute track, a rectangular-shaped soupçon of SLN augments readability in dim light conditions. The aforementioned track uses a combination of crisp lines and red Arabic numerals, optimizing overall legibility.

At first glance, the dial appears to have just two counters, arranged along a north-south axis. However, closer examination reveals there is a small second’s display at 9 o’clock and a day and date display positioned opposite, all of which prove simple to read. The dominant counters comprise a 30-minute register at 12 o’clock and a 12-hour register below, each endowed with sandblasted centers and framed with snailed detail. The Maurice Lacroix design team have enriched the composition with numerous elements, presenting dial components at different heights and judiciously using colors in order to enrich the ownership experience.

The bezel is executed in scratch-resistant ceramic and is equipped with a tachymeter, a function that allows the wearer to determine the speed of an object over a known distance. This underlines the sporty character of the watch while simultaneously exhibiting a classical, retro appearance.

Maurice Lacroix has retained some design elements found on former models such as the elongated push pieces and the distinctive double-stepped lugs. The case juxtaposes satin-brushed and polished surfaces, delivering contrast and a notable sense of style. To the rear of the watch, a pane of sapphire crystal affords sight of the automatic ML112 caliber. Upholding Maurice Lacroix’s reputation for delivering high-perceived value, the movement is appointed with a combination of Côtes de Genève, perlage and sun brush decoration.

The model is supplied on a color coordinated, M-branded nylon strap with tone-on-tone stitching that is lined with luxurious nubuck leather. The PONTOS S Chronograph is also available with a 3-rows steel bracelet. Owners can modify the appearance of the watch courtesy of the Easy Strap Exchange system, swapping the strap or bracelet for an alternative, without the need for tools.

With its capacity to measure elapsed periods, or determine speeds using the tachymeter scale, the PONTOS S Chronograph is unquestionably sporty. However, this watch proves eminently elegant while remaining highly versatile, thereby befitting any situation. Quite simply, Maurice Lacroix has produced a watch that bridges two seemingly disparate worlds, elegance and sport.

Louis Vuitton introduced LV diamonds campaign via 360 MAGAZINE

LV DIAMONDS

Louis Vuitton continues its journey into the world of jewelry with the LV Diamonds collection.

This new chapter celebrates the LV Monogram Star diamonds and offers a unique vision of diamonds through unprecedented creations that spark universal emotions and transcend individual personalities. As symbols of commitment, these pieces of jewelry pay homage to our bonds with other people, both to loved ones and to ourselves. They are there to celebrate each facet of our lives. The LV Diamonds collection reaffirms our attachment to ourselves and others, and to those precious moments spent together. 

LV Monogram Star, A Revolutionary Cut 

The monogram flower, Louis Vuitton’s iconic pattern, resonates throughout the House with its timeless and bold design. With the LV Monogram Star diamonds, the motif confirms its status as a symbol of eternity. Innovation, tradition and technology, combined with creativity and jewelers’ savoir-faire, have inspired the Maison with this specific cut, named LV Monogram Star. Instantly recognizable with its fifty-three facets with pointed ends, it repreises the star-shaped monogram flower created by Georges-Louis Vuitton in 1896. A bold, graphic cut, with a brand new outline to make the sleek authentic jewels sparkle like never before. 

The Creations

The exclusive pieces in the LV Diamonds collection designed by Artistic Director for Watches and Jewelry, Francesca Amfitheatrof, showcase LV Monogram Star and brilliant diamond cuts. Rings, unisex bands with understated yet bold designs, earrings and pendants are all tributes to the Mainson’s signature aesthetic. The platinum, rose gold or half-aveed rings rekindle the Art Deco-style V with the Gaston-Louis Vuitton would have adorn his suitcases in the 1920s and 1930s. An even more precious version is enhanced with a central LV Monogram Star diamond, while another one dominates over other rings made of platinum, encrusted or entirely paved with diamonds. THanks to the Louis Vuitton jewelers’ expertise, this monogram flower is turned into a bezel, with tiny V-shaped claws embracing the curves and edges of this rare gem. Playful and graphic, irresistible bands complete the collection with a sparkling checkerboard that calls to mind the Damier canvas created by Georges Vuitton in 1888. Finally, a pendant and earrings, new daily essentials combining the must-have brilliant cut with a flower paved with diamonds let a double motif in diamond and gold resolute on the hollow of the neck or the ears. The new jewelry sets are highlighted by the harmonious use of the same colors and materials – the white and pink of gold, the purity of platinum and the intense shine of diamonds. These exclusive unisex cfreations were designed to be worn by themselves or in conjunction with other pieces, combined, stacked, or mixed or matched in an eternal dialogue. 

The LV Diamonds Certificate 

Louis Vuitton presents the first LV Diamonds certificate. This document reflects their commitment to transparently sourcing their gemstones. Provided with each LV Diamonds creation set with a central stone, this unique file lists each diamond’s weight, color, purity and cut quality. It also tracks its journey, from the country where the diamond was extracted until its arrival in its case, through the workshops where it was cut, polished and mounted. Each chapter in the story of an LV Diamonds creation is written down, thus carefully documented. In order to reinforce such a certificate’s security, Louis Vuitton uses blockchain. This modern technology, operated by Aura Blockchain Consortium – a platform dedicated to the luxury industry – allows for the recording and issuing of forgery-proof data thanks to decentralized storage. This solves many issues related to responsible sourcing, as well as the diamond’s durability since the platform provides direct access to the stone’s history, and its life cycle from its creation to its distribution.

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.

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.

A quick Shark retrospective at Ulysse Nardin:

2010      The very first Ulysse Nardin DIVER Hammerhead shark watch was created.

2018      The shark becomes a Ulysse Nardin emblem and the brand’s advertising campaign signature.

2018      Launch of the DIVER GREAT WHITE watch, rapidly sold-out.

2019      Launch of the DIVER BLUE SHARK model.

2020      The brand starts a SHARK TAGGING campaign with non-invasive techniques thanks to its partnership with the Acores University and the work of free diver Fred Buyle and PhD Doctor Jorge Fontes.

2020      Ulysse Nardin partners with the US based OCEARCH organization, a fascinating, shark-tracking app. Ocearch aims to share knowledge about “the links between shark, human and environmental health.”

2020      A young adult female Great White was caught and tagged off the coast of Massachusetts and named Andromache becoming ULYSSE NARDIN’s first official shark ambassador. She can be tracked through OCEARCH. HERE

2021      Launch of the DIVER LEMON SHARK timepiece with the Florida International University.

2022      The latest edition to the Ulysse Nardin’s diver collection, the DIVER CHRONOGRAPH GREAT WHITE comes to the surface in titanium and withstands 300 meters depth, in a limited edition of 300 pieces.

2022      The brand partners with SHARKTRUST, 1% FOR THE PLANET and MI.

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

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

Founded by Mr. Ulysse Nardin in 1846, the company owes its reputation to its links with the sea: its onboard marine chronometers are among the most award-winning and reliable ever designed.

In 2001, the Maison changed the face of contemporary watchmaking by launching the first Freak.

To underscore its commitment to its favourite environment, Ulysse Nardin is active in supporting the preservation of the Ocean, focusing on two major areas: encouraging upcycling to reduce marine plastic pollution and developing scientific knowledge concerning the preservation of the sharks, its emblem.

Today, in the Swiss towns of Le Locle and La Chaux-de-Fonds, Ulysse Nardin remains devoted to its quest for watchmaking perfection in four collections: Marine, Diver, Blast and Freak.

As of 2022, Ulysse Nardin and sister Maison Girard-Perregaux have formed an independent collective of high horology Manufactures.

Gucci Pet

The House introduces Gucci Pet Collection —a wide-ranging selection of items designed for dogs and cats that combines high-quality materials and craftsmanship with innovation, and many of the House’s signature motifs. The new line continues the narrative of surprise and delight behind Gucci Lifestyle, launched in September 2021 and inspired by a cabinet of curiosities—a place that could accommodate all of the fine, well-crafted that, while part of everyday life, still give off a magical and wonderful aura.

The offering includes collars and harnesses in plain leather, GG canvas, Web stripe, or the Herbarium or all-over geometric G print, and embellished with details like the Interlocking G logo or studs. Leashes in varying lengths and widths, bag holders, and Air Tag cases, are all available in the same materials and motifs to coordinate or mix and match. Within a selection of items that also serve as design pieces for the home are Made-to-Order miniature couches on which pets can lounge, feeding bowls with various House prints, cloches to cover bowls with, hard-sided cases with removable ceramic bowls and handles for easy transport as well as coordinated feeding mats. For pets who travel often, comfortable carriers in GG canvas are also part of the mix. Apparel includes polos, T-shirts, knitwear, and coats, distinguished by a vibrant palette and playful, signature motifs like all-over strawberries and hearts to Interlocking Gs and the classic monogram, also seen in the House’s ready-to-wear, creating opportunities for matching looks.

In line with the House’s commitment to sustainability, the Gucci Pet Collection includes items in recycled polyester, recycled cotton or Demetra — Gucci’s groundbreaking material that was unveiled in June 2021 after two years of in-House research and development. Demetra combines quality, softness, and durability with an eco-friendly ethos and is made from animal-free raw materials that are primarily from renewable and bio-based sources. Created from the House’s desire to explore and innovate materials for the future, Demetra is manufactured entirely in a Gucci factory in Italy using the same expertise and processes for tanning that give the material its pliable and resilient performance with a supple finish.

The new category is unveiled through a campaign with art direction and photography by Max Siedentopf. Infused with a retro-inspired, dream-like patina, a playful cast of dogs and cats of various types and sizes, wearing pieces from the new collection, are set against clean and colorful backgrounds that allow each animal’s personality to shine, inspired by the House’s underlying vision of individuality.
