Bred by America, Born for Britain, Blooded Over Manila

Bremont salutes the P-51 Mustang with a limited edition chronograph. An actual reliquary, the timepiece incorporates parts fashioned from the aluminum skin of a WWII veteran with a history that puts it in sorties above embattled Manila. In 2011, the award winning British brand Bremont introduced the Limited Edition Mustang P-51 watch—a salute to this phenomenal American-built fighter plane of World War II.From Bremont’s pre-release press statement (for the complete text and specifications,

Porsche introduces the Macan compact SUV

It’s new, smaller than its closest sibling, agile as a cat, and oh so powerful. The new Macan is Porsche’s first ever compact SUV--it’s flagship for a whole new class of vehicles. It’s not a matter of introducing a compact SUV to Porsche’s stable, but of putting a Porsche among compact SUVs. Bear with me, you’ll see.To start with, where the Macan S has an already impressive 3.0 litre V6 biturbo that hides 340bhp under the hood, the top-of-the-line Macan Turbo just can’t help declaring itself with a never-before-used 3.6 litre V6 biturbo that, with 400bhp of rated output,

The Ballon Bleu de Cartier Watch

The Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch, the reason for all the enchanting imagery, isn’t quite what it seems. It looks round, but it isn’t quite. The style is somewhere between classic and futuristic. The glass magnifies the dial numbers and seems to distort time. The Roman Numerals are displaced by the Ballon Bleu itself, the sapphire cabochon decorating the winding mechanism of the precious metal models.

Conquering Constants

THE SOUL OF A NEW MANUFACTURE There is an interesting constant at Baselworld. No pun intended, as it’ll be made clear. There is something I have seen since the very first time I attended that wonderful, chaotic horological meeting place almost a decade ago, and in spite of all the change and relative chaos of this year’s event I saw it again.The days before Baselworld opens, all the brands are putting the final touches on their booths. Everything from million-dollar watches to priceless antiques to vintage cars to chairs and drinking water is brought in. In the middle of all that,

Urwerk's Felix Baumgartner winds us up with vigorous cranking of the EMC

Urwerk founder Felix Baumgartner himself shows us how to crank a charge into the EMC's Maxon generator. If you thought he was winding the EMC's mechanical movement, the vigorousness of the cranking would be very unsettling.

The MB&F Legacy Machine No. 2, from Geneva, in Geneva

No More Worlds to Conquer

Richard Mille gives volume to his passion.If watchmaker Richard Mille were to say that he was making something unusual, people would probably do well to pay attention.The Richard Mille watchmaking company officially came into existence in 2001, as its founder wanted to create a watch company that would extend from roots in the Swiss villages of the industry's birth to the latest possibilities of high technology and materials. Richard Mille had been in the watchmaking industry since 1973. He joined the prestigious Mauboussin house in 1994.

The Way The Future Was

MB&F REINVENTS THE DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Maximilian Busser is the First among Friends at Maximilian Busser & Friends, otherwise known as MB&F. He and the people that he gathers to him have given us four of their Horological Machines, the unconventional and free-fancy watches that turn the ideas of watchmaking on their head. He is free to roam where his imagination takes him. Many of his watches don’t even make sense… until you see them in person, in action. Once you see how they work, they become not only sensible but… almost inevitable.

Unlocking the Secret Language of Horses

Horseshoes secure, bit in, throatlash tight, mouth strap closed, whip in hand, reins firm, saddle on. Right? Wrong. That’s not how it’s done at the Tracy James Natural Horse Riding Center in Antequera, Spain. It started with a flight to Granada, followed by a train ride to Antequera. Set in the warm, southern part of Spain, the ranch is in the heart of the Andalusian region, which encompasses cities with landmarks such as the famed Alhambra. It is most famous, however, for being the birthplace of the beautiful Andalusian breed of horses. It has also become a haven for misunderstood horses.

High Seas Navigator

Montblanc celebrates traditional seafaring navigation with a one-of-a-kind combination chronograph wristwatch and nautical clock set.Long before the dawn of computer aided GPS, the only way for a mariner to determine his position on the endless expanse of a vast ocean was to do it manually, with the use of highly accurate clocks and a sextant to measure his geographic latitude and longitude. To accomplish this,

In The Cold Rare Air

Christian Redl’s next challenge and the Edox Iceman II For a man, the irony of it will be excruciating, and for his timepiece, the extremes, mollifying. Extreme free diver Christian Redl who set the world record for diving under ice last year, now joins the Gokyo Project at Nepal’s Mount Everest National Park to challenge the glacial lakes of the Gokyo wetlands.On February 12, 2011, Redl dove 200 feet down into the frigid waters of Lake Weissensee in the Austrian Alps. The dive saw Redl descending at a rate of almost five feet per second and touching down after 42 seconds,

Linderhof: Enough Gold to Make You Pass Out

There are many castles in Germany, but Linderhof in the deep Bavarian south ranks among the most famous and is certainly a fascinating gem to visit.Linderhof was built by Ludwig II, the king of Bavaria from 1864 to his mysterious death by drowning in a mountain lake in 1886. He was also called the “fairy-tale king”, because for much of his life he personified a romantic figure that might have emerged from a distant, primeval mythology. Linderhof is the only one he was able to complete during his lifetime.It is patterned after French prototypes of the preceding century,
