(Lengnau, Switzerland – 2018) To know where you’re going, you must first know where you’ve been. The Rado Tradition 1965 is a celebration of Rado design from the past, comprehensively updated for the future. Marrying 60s design with contemporary materials, the Tradition 1965 is a thoroughly modern timepiece with a vintage feel.

Design Squared

Rado Tradition 1965 XL Auto (Titanium)
Rado Tradition 1965 XL Auto (Titanium)

Inspired by the Manhattan skyline, the 1965 original sports an unmistakable geometric design, incorporating elements such as rectangular hour and minute markers, a squared day-date complication window and the iconic Rado red anchor at 9 o’clock.

Rado Tradition M Auto (Stainless Steel)

The new Tradition 1965 XL retains this aesthetic while integrating the innovative materials and design language Rado is renowned for. The case is now crafted from PVD coated titanium, a material that i

s almost 40% lighter than stainless steel. Sapphire crystal has been employed for the glass and the unmistakable “tuning fork” hour and minute hands boast superior legibility. This is Tradition, updated for the 21st Century.

The Tradition 1965 also includes new design touches unique to this updated edition. The famous red anchor (denoting an automatic movement), pivots according to the orientation of the timepiece. A supple leather strap, increased case size and cushion- shaped case back all ensure a comfortable wearing experience.

The Tradition 1965 XL represents a brief celebration of an extraordinary 1960s creation by Rado. Production is limited to 1,965 pieces.

Rado has also created two M-sized versions with stainless steel cases. The silver dial with cognac leather strap version echoes the XL model in appearance and is also limited to 1,965 pieces. The version, with a case and dial encrusted with 302 diamonds, is limited to just 65 pieces. These are truly a treat for lovers of timepieces past and present.

Nothing to hide

(Lengnau, Switzerland – 2018) When it comes to Rado’s mastery of materials and design credentials, the brand has earned its reputation. Now Rado is showcasing its prowess in a piece that is straight from the top drawer.

Displaying watchmaking ability, design know-how and an understanding of modern manly style, the HyperChrome Skeleton Automatic Chronograph is a watch that’s guaranteed to get a second glance – at the bar, in the gym, in the office or even on your daily commute.

Crafted from matt black high-tech ceramic, the HyperChrome Skeleton sports a stark yet subtle look. Created by firing ceramic components with black pigment at 1450°C in a high-tech oven, super hard high-tech ceramic develops its matt black finish through an extensive sand blasting and finishing process.

The centre of attention

With the HyperChrome Skeleton, you’ll need to look twice because there’s so much to see – and it’s all intriguing. The skeletonised or “open worked” movement has had its plate and bridges cut away, exposing the inner design elements of the movement within. Encased in matt black high-tech ceramic and offset by a polished black bezel, this is as far as you can push transparency and still retain a high level of readability.

With lightness, scratch resistance and wearer comfort guaranteed thanks to the full high-tech ceramic construction, this is an all day everday timepiece that is eye- catching and impactful.

This is a watch for men with confidence and self-assured style. If this is the watch you want, get used to the attention, because the HyperChrome Skeleton has nothing to hide.

Whether they’re grand or intimate, weddings are ‘once in a lifetime moments’ and these special occasions need unique locations, precise planning and faultless execution. With white powdery beaches, clear blue sky, crystalline water and scenic views creating the perfect backdrop to a dream day’s memories, Constance Hotels and Resorts’ properties across the Indian ocean offer the most elegant and intimate settings, while their professional team can take care of every aspect of one of the most important days of your life.

 Every Constance hotel and resort’s offers a slightly different take on the traditional wedding inspired by their own island. Say ‘I do’ on a jetty above the turquoise lagoon, in a luxury villa or restaurant, in a tropical garden setting, or with miles of white sandy beach stretching for as far as the eye can see. At Constance couples can tie the knot on their own private sandbank, surrounded by friends and family, or celebrate their union dancing under the stars barefoot in the sand, while diving fanatics can even get married underwater.

Each and every detail is tailored to individual tastes and preferences, from how to spend the morning before getting married, to the ceremony’s itinerary, interior décor, hair styling, and even after waking up the next morning; enjoying a leisurely breakfast on the terrace of your private villa and a special bridal spa treatment.

With three optional wedding packages available dependent on your choice and budget, each wedding essential is covered and with only one ceremony a day at all Constance Hotels and Resorts, you’re safe in the knowledge that your dedicated nuptial planner has everything covered including legal formalities and that all important wedding cake.

The wedding coordinator at each Constance property will advise the bride on which kind of flowers she should consider, depending on the season, as well as the best fabrics to use for the bridal party, and whether the bride should wear heels or just go without. The wedding coordinator will take the time to listen to the individual stories, how they met, or how long they have known each other, to be able to personalise their lifetime event.

Exploring the Indian Wedding Market and fostering exciting business relations

The 6th edition of Exotic Wedding Planning Conference successfully concluded on August 14th, at Goa, India. The conference which took place at the Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa, Goa was a spectacle of

glamour and festivity. The 2-day extravaganza hosted 150+ wedding planners coming together from more than 65 countries under a common roof to connect, collaborate, and celebrate the fraternity.

The ‘DAY-1’ commenced with a welcome note by Rishikesh Shetty (Managing Director, Exito Media Concepts Pvt. Ltd.), followed by a session on industry insights with Alison Philips, the Chairperson. She explained the trends followed by the millennials and how the wedding planners can effectively reach to this set of audience by engaging on the Social Media Platform and develop an unpassable personality. Next, a keynote session was taken by Samit Garg focusing on how the venue, décor, food and beverage, hospitality, and entertainment come together to create great experiences. To bring all this together and create an extraordinary experience the wedding planners need to have a perspective and be thoughtful, imaginative, original, and bold. He also focuses on the art of story-telling.

Next session was addressed by Sumant Jayakrishnan on “The un/bearable LIGHT/ness of being…” focusing on how the correct lighting in a wedding set-up works wonders. The audience then broke for the focused one-on-one meetings in the meeting area. Two more sessions were addressed before breaking for the luncheon.

It was indeed an interactive session with the King of Weddings. Post-Lunch Amit Dabke drew insights on the “Blue Ocean Strategy” in the context of the wedding planning industry. He speculates the results that could be achieved by adopting this strategy into business decisions. After the intriguing and engaging learning sessions, it was time to relax and have some fun with the Yoga and Zumba activities and loosen up a bit.

The last two sessions of the second day of the conference were a Panel Discussion on “Change in attitude towards weddings by families across 2 tier cities”, and a session on the concept of design & décor by Chris Stephenson. The day ended on a high note with a laid back sheesha set-up where the attendees could unwind and relax before returning back to their usual routines and life.

As part of the Clifton collection, Baume & Mercier reveals three new watches with emblematic functions and elegant designs. Each piece is carefully finished and completed by a sapphire glass back, revealing the movement, and is mounted on an intense blue alligator strap that fastens with a secure triple folding buckle.

BAUME & MERCIER CLIFTON THE COMPLETE CALENDAR

Inspired by “vintage” designs, the first model features a complete, clear and easy-to-read calendar. Two apertures display the day and month, while a blued hand indicates the date. The moon phase elegantly completes the white dial.

BAUME & MERCIER CLIFTON POWER RESERVE, RETROGRADE DAY AND DATE

The dial of the second and most contemporary design features additional hands that indicate the day within a display aperture, the retrograde date along a wide arc, and the power reserve at 6 o’clock.

BAUME & MERCIER CLIFTON OPEN BALANCE WHEEL AND POWER RESERVE

The final Small Complication model also features a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. On this model, Baume & Mercier decided to unveil part of the movement by skeletonizing the dial at 12 o’clock. Fine watch aficionados will enjoy observing the oscillations of the balance wheel and the beat of the escapement anchor through the opening in the dial.
