A New Icon 崭新标志

Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II
GMT-Master II in Oystersteel

Rolex is introducing three new versions of the GMT-Master II with a brand new movement, the new-generation calibre 3285, and a new image. The new version, in Oystersteel, is equipped with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a 24-hour graduated two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic. The lugs and sides of its Oyster case have been redesigned, and the watch is fitted on a five-link Jubilee bracelet.

Rolex has pioneered the development of special ceramics for monobloc bezels and bezel inserts that are exceptionally resistant to scratches and corrosion, and offer particularly intense colours that are unaffected by ultraviolet rays. The new GMT-Master II version has a red and blue ceramic insert which represents the most iconic of all GMT-Masters since it launched in 1955.

In addition to the conventional hour, minute and second hands, which display the local time at the wearer’s current location, the watch features arrow-tipped hand which circles the dial once every 24 hours. When the bezel is in the neutral position, that is with the triangle at 12 o’clock, the 24-hour hand displays the reference time, or home time.
The Oyster case represents a symbol of waterproofness to a depth of 100 metres, and the crystal Cyclops lens i/o crystal lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof i/o scratch-proof sapphire.

In function as well as in name, the GMT-Master II evokes intercontinental travel across time zones. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) marks mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London.

Originally designed to aid airline pilots in their navigation, the GMT-Master has become an unmistakable icon. Its emblematic bezel is a signature feature of its unique and instantly recognisable aesthetics.

劳力士宣布推出专业旗舰表 GMT-Master II 之三款新版本,搭配新一代的 calibre 3285 机芯以及全新外型。新版本的蚝式钢有双向可旋转的边框,还有24小时刻度,并锲入红蓝双色的 Cerachrom陶瓷表圈。蚝式外壳的凸耳和侧边历经重新设计,安置固定在五格链节纪念型 (Jubilee) 表带上。

至于劳力士率先开发的特殊陶瓷材质,适用于整体边框和镶板,具备抗划痕和腐蚀能力,并且确保色彩不受强烈紫外线影响。全新 GMT-Master II 版有红蓝双色 Cerachrom 陶质字圈,这是自1955年推出以来最具代表性的 GMT-Masters。

除了以传统的时、分和秒针显示佩戴者所在区域的当地时间,手表的特点是有箭头的指针,每24小时循着表盘转动一次,当表圈在中间段,即12点的三角形,24小时指针会指向参考时间或本土时间。

蚝式表壳具备 100 公尺深度的防水特质,晶莹剔透的 Cyclops lens 水晶镜片在3点钟部位可以轻松读取日期,由坚硬的防刮蓝宝石水晶构成。

而在功能性名义方面,GMT-Master II 可唤起跨时区洲际旅行。格林威治标准时间(GMT)指的是伦敦格林威治皇家天文台的太阳时间。

从最初设计目的是协助飞行员进行导航,如今 GMT-Master 却成为一个明确的图标。深具创新性的边框是独一无二、识别力度高的美学特征。

Corum returns to its Root 海军上将传奇Corum回到初心

“It was an obvious choice given the watches’ nautical inspiration. Mother-of-pearl is a natural material that is only produced at the bottom of the ocean. Meanwhile wood is the ultimate symbol of sailing.”

“作为出自航海的灵感绽现,这是最契合的选择。珍珠母是一种只能在深海生产的天然物质。与此同时,木料是航船的终极象征。”

– Jérôme Biard, CEO 首席执行官

Colours: Blue/grey
Material: Mother-of-pearl
Dimension: 32 mm
Case material: Stainless steel
Crown material: Stainless steel
Back type: Screwed in open back cover in stainless steel with glare proof sapphire crystal

When it comes to Corum, the iconic Bubble and Golden Bridge would probably be the series most watch collectors would associate with. However this leading brand in luxury watch making since 1955 is returning to its roots by decorating the dials of its new Admiral Legend pieces in entirely natural materials with eight variations crafted from mother-of-pearl or wood, the brand is reconnecting with its original heritage of artistic crafts while building on the marine inspiration of its Admiral collection. Featuring three hands and date, a chronograph or small seconds, the eight new Legend pieces are expanding the horizons of the Admiral collection. These models come with a satin, steel or vulcanised rubber bracelet and are available in 32 mm, 38 mm or 42 mm sizes.

The new Legend pieces stay true to the Admiral spirit with a dodecagonal bezel, dauphine hands, an automatics calibre, 12 pennant-shaped hour markers and an open screw-down case back. Every single one of the mother-of-pearl models (32 mm and 38 mm) presents a slightly different dial composition, as this natural material is unique by nature. Each piece is hand-assembled to form lively designs where the dial endlessly plays with the light, shifting from shades of blue to green and then to grey.

说到昆仑手表 (Corum),其标志性的泡泡博彩 (Bubble) 和金桥 (Golden Bridge) 系列很可能是大多数手表收藏者会先联想到的。

然而,这个自1955年以来领先的奢侈手表品牌在高档手表制作上正在回归本行初心。全新的8款海军上将传奇作品的表盘装饰是采用天然材料珍珠母或木质制造,这品牌重新结合了传统艺术工艺,尤其是集合以航海概念打造的海军上将系列。这8件新的传奇作品以三重表扣和日期,计时码表或小秒钟为特色,拓展海军上将系列的收藏视野。它们将可搭配缎子、钢或硫化橡胶材质的表链,大小分别为32毫米,38毫米或42毫米。

全新 Admiral Legend 保持海军上将精神中真实质朴的一面。十二角形斜切面边框,太妃指针,自动上链机芯,12个盆形小时标记和螺旋把头的表壳底盖。每一个珍珠母材质的型号(32毫米和38毫米)表盘都将呈现略微不一致的形态,因为这种天然材料是独一无二的,每一件皆为手工组装而成的活力设计,表盘不断与光线形成互动,从深浅蓝渐变为绿色,然后再显现灰色。

Lamborghini Urus

First to appear is the Lamborghini Urus. The 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 is probably a conceptual marriage between Huracan and Aventador. A new breed super fast and super stylish SSUV that is currently the benchmark for those to join the club.

首先登场的是兰博基尼 Urus,所搭载的 4.0 升双涡轮 V8 引擎可能是 Huracan Aventador 在概念上的结合。而这款新型的超快超时尚 SSUV,目前是加入俱乐部的标准。

Roll-Royce SUV ‘Cullinan

Who in their wildest imagination will think that Roll-Royce will be rolling out a SUV? Details are scarce and yet to have an official name, Project Cullinan is the working title for this mysterious beast. ‘Cullinan’ is the name of the largest diamond ever found.

而无论大家想象力再丰富,谁会想到劳斯莱斯会推出一款 SUV?虽然细节欠缺,还没有正式的名字,Cullinan 计划是这个神秘野兽的标志。“Cullinan” 这个名字是至今最有价值的“钻石”。

Bentley Bentayga W12

Meanwhile the Bentley Bentayga W12 still helms the fastest In this luxury turf. A 2.4-ton car with a top speed of 300km per hour, the W12 Bentayga has been on the throne of the four-wheel drive sector since it was launched in 2016 and still showing no sign of retirement.

与此同时,宾利 Bentayga W12 仍是这一豪华领域中速度最快的车款。一辆 2.4 吨的汽车,最高时速达到 300 公里,自 2016 年推出以来,一直占据越野跑车的宝座,至今仍未有退休的迹象

Aston Martin’s DBX

On the other hand, Aston Martin’s DBX concept was revealed at the Geneva motor show in 2015 but production is only expected next year in 2019.  The concept and drawings suggested a svelte and more stylish assault on the crossover market than that offered so far. James Bond will probably have the first drive.

另外,阿斯顿·马丁的 DBX 概念车曾于 2015年日内瓦车展上亮相,但预计 2019 年才会投产。概念和设计定稿显示,这是目前跨界市场上,最有全新时尚攻击力的车型,而 007 占士邦可能会是首个试驾司机。

Land Rover – SVAutobiography Dynamic

Last but not least would be the SVAutobiography Dynamic. This is the most prestigious model in the Land Rover’s series that maintain its reputation of being smooth on roads and a pro when it ventures off roads with its supercharged 5.0-liter V8 producing 557bhp. With a big price tag, this model has a luxury interior that includes remote control four zone climate control and perforated leather seats.

最后重点推介SVAutobiography Dynamic。这是路虎系列中极负盛名的车款,保持了在公路上顺畅无阻的声誉,同时也是一款专业的车型,配备了马力5.0升的增压V8发动机,最大功率为557bhp。当然,这款车价格不菲,内饰豪华,包括遥控四区气候控制和穿孔皮革座椅。

Hobby impressed visitors and potentials in Stuttgart CMT trade fair with its wide range of leisure vehicles. Hobby customers can now choose from a completely redesigned caravan series ONTOUR, the vans from the VANTANA programme, the semi-integrateds from the series OPTIMA DE LUXE and OPTIMA PREMIUM and the family-friendly SIESTA alcoves. Other trade fair highlights are the “50 Years Anniversary Edition” models, which Hobby is offering in both the motorhome and caravan segments.

The OPTIMA DE LUXE is graced with a smooth rear in flawless white, while the OPTIMA PREMIUM is a beauty on which the cab paintwork is coordinated with the two-tone rear section. There are other differences in the interior, with each having its own furniture decor. A very special in the family-friendly OPTIMA series is the T65 GQ, which comes in OPTIMA DE LUXE and OPTIMA PREMIUM trim. The T65 GQ primarily shows its luxury in the rear, where a comfortable Queen-size bed can be found. The sanitary rooms are in the centre section – between the bedroom and living/dining area. Two in number, because the shower and WC/washroom are separate units in the T65 GQ. The washroom is also accessible from two sides, from the bedroom and the living area. Design for living areas and the kitchen are very well thought off not only to provide a home in four wheels but also to ensure owners and families are comfortable when on board.
