Thick as Thieves

In New York, the experienced art thief Keith Ripley invites the bold thief from Miami Gabriel Martin to team up with him. He plans to steal two valuable mysterious antiques Faberge eggs, located in a well protected Russian jewellery Romanov. Each egg is worth twenty million dollars on the black market, and Ripley needs his cut to free himself from his debt to a powerful mobster, known as Nicky. The reluctant Gabriel agrees to participate, after having a one night stand with Ripley’s goddaughter Alexandra Karolin. Meanwhile, the persistent Lieutenant Weber, who has unsuccessfully tried to put Ripley in jail for twenty years, figures out how to anticipate the movements of the criminal in order to catch him.

Breitling, the wristwatch manufacturer of the world’s finest men’s timepieces, was formed in 1884 by Leon Breitling, who set up the company at the tender age of 24 in Switzerland. Together with The First World War, when aviation combat machine took off, Breitling turned its attention to the aviation field, to being able to time keep it. Then, as the Second World War came, they introduced the famous “Chronomat” watch which was the first in the world to be fitted with a circular slide rule to aid with navigation. The peak of Breitling’s success came in 1962, when astronaut Scott Carpenter wore one of their watches in space – this watch became known as the “Cosmonaute” and is a very highly sought after timepiece today.
Breitling wristwatches remain the first choice of most of today’s commercial and professional aviators and new models such as the Breitling Emergency which sends out a radio distress signal if the wearer becomes lost, continue to keep the brand at the forefront of technology as well as style.

The Rolex Day Date is a symbol of a decorated exclusive watch.

.

Carmen Electra has a lot of vivacity, one of the main characteristics of the Rolex Day Date together with the personified elegance. With a streamlining shape and the finishing reflects the precision that has gone into making this timeless piece,  this watch is meant to epitomize time. Sparkling diamonds have been encrusted in the watch making it a visual treat with the flagship feature being the weekday display which can be preset in 26 distinct dialects. The 18 Carat Gold in which it is embellished is spectacular and the calendar mechanism in the watch takes a mere three milliseconds to navigate to the next day. The Oyster case in which it gets sheltered is put through 150 manufacturing strides to certify its waterproof ability. The watch can be taken to a depth of 330 feet and will still emerge unscathed by its effect. This is one model that is also preferred by divers wanting to keep a check on time while going beneath waters. The watch symbolizes style, a virtue exemplified by Carmen Electra.

Patek Philippe: Trossi Leggenda

A wristwatch belonging to an Italian mogul who takes pride in having won Grand Prix races and was president of Ferrari generated a sales of £1.1million against its pre-auction estimate of $1.9 million after selling off his gold Patek Philippe timepiece at Sothey’s Geneva auction house.

Count Carlo Felice Trossi’s priciest possession called the “Trossi Leggenda”, described as “really revolutionary” by experts, was the highlight amidst the other 200 timepieces. Trossi by profession was a racing driver, pilot and speedboat racer whose motor-racing triumphs count the 1947 Italian Grand Prix. Besides this another gold Rolex known as “Oyster Daytona Paul Newman” dating back to 1980 got sold for £76,000 almost two-fold of its pre-auction estimate of £25,000 to £40,000. The watch was christened after the Florida car race and for the American actor who helped promote this style.

Count Carlo Felice Trossi was born in Biella, Italy, April 27, 1908 and died in Milan, May 9, 1949. Trossi was an Italian race car driver and auto constructor. During his career, he raced for two teams, Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo. He won the 1947 Italian Grand Prix and the 1948 Swiss Grand Prix. He died at only 41 years of age (brain tumor).

Trossi backed one of the most unusual Grand Prix cars, the Trossi Monaco of 1934. This car featured a 16 cylinder, two stroke cycle, two row radial, air cooled engine and an aircraft-like body designed by Augusto Monaco. The car was a spectacular failure and never raced in a Grand Prix event.

Corum Tourbillon Mens Panoramique 18K White Gold Limited Edition Watch Ref. 38285059

Corum was founded in 1955 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland by Gaston Ries and his nephew, Renee Bannwart, and just one year later the first Corum watches were being produced.

Even though this had been done before on pocket watches, Corum was the first and only one ever to do a wristwatch. In January 2000, Corum was purchased by it’s current owner, Severin Wunderman, and was soon under the guidance of his son Michael, the President of the company to this date. The team was completed in 2007 with the arrival of a man with a rich professional background, Antoine Calce, to the CEO position, who oversees overall operations.

Audemars Piguet: The Royal Oak Carbon Concept

Audemars_Piguet The Royal Oak Carbon Concept
Carbon fibre has been the preferred material for high-performance applications that demand sturdiness. Formula 1 race cars, America’s Cup yachts and, even aerospace vehicles, have fully leveraged the material’s technical properties: strength and lightness.
Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet is a pioneer according to the use of carbon fibre for function as well as form. The Royal Oak Carbon Concept is surprisingly light thanks to materials such as forged carbon, amorphous carbon coatings, ceramics, titanium, and anodized aluminium, which forms the watch’s green central bridge. The absence of a dial provides a full view of the hand-wound Caliber 2895 movement’s key components: the tourbillon carriage—comprising more than 70 parts yet weighing a mere 0.45 grams—and the column wheel, which is the chronograph’s nerve centre. Audemars presents a novel twist on the 30-minute chronograph with a linear minute counter consisting of two columnar scales, with tens of minutes on the left and single minutes on the right. Tiny windows that correspond to each numeral mark elapsed time by changing from white to black. The wearer shifts from winding to time-setting by adjusting the stem.
