When two supreme artistry join efforts to boost the elegance of a watch, it’s also the time to celebrate the exclusive nature of this collaboration – a limited edition of 100 pieces of the Reverso Tribute Duoface watch by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Partnering with Argentina’s greatest bootmakers, the warm-toned pink gold case matches with the two-tone cordovan leather strap specially designed and hand-crafted with its own unique patina and finishes making it a one-off. A family business running since 1892, Casa Fagliano works a soft and supple leather known for its great strength, following techniques handed down by long tradition.

This Art Deco design reflects its 1931 inspiration and will be sold exclusively in Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques. Driven by the Duoface concept, this watch offers two contrasting dials – both equally refined and each displaying a different time zone. Echoing its hand-applied hour markers – the Dauphine hands – on its slate grey sunray dial, it also features a small seconds in a round minute track softening the pure geometrical linearity of the watch. The words “Limited Edition – One of 100” engraved on its back emphasise the exclusive nature of this watch and its refinement will not escape those who appreciate craftsmanship at its authentic and original best. The pursuit of perfection by the Grande Maison and the renowned bootmakers is truly an inspiration to all.

The new Cartier boutique’s recent opening in Roppongi Hills will evolve along with times, people, and society while staying true to the unchanging essence of the maison. Following one in Cannes, France, this is the second boutique that comes with a new format where furniture can easily and freely be rearranged. The limited-time gallery “TANK 100” – celebrating the TANK watch’s 100th anniversary – will be held in conjunction with its grand opening in line with its concept to present the space sometimes as a gallery, sometimes as a conceptual boutique. The opening saw the performance of Berlin-based electronic DJ Victor Tricard. Artist Shingo Katori has produced two original works of art inspired by Cartier’s legendary TANK watch, which is now being exhibited at “TANK 100”. While one will be displayed as a key visual at the gallery, the other, a luminous object conveying an image of TANK’s century-long history titled “TANKOTHEQUE” is displayed in the main room. The store interior is produced by Studios Parisien.

Lost & Found 失而复得

BVLGARI celebrated the homecoming of the two stolen masterpieces of Vincent van Gogh at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam almost fifteen years after their theft from Naples, Italy. Thanks to the invaluable efforts and contribution of the Italian Guardia di Finanza and other competent authorities, the Embassy of Italy in The Netherlands was aware that major brands of ‘Made in Italy’ could contribute to the Museum’s efforts to restore the two masterpieces.

A special treat for BVLGARI invitees, the paintings “View of the Sea at Scheveningen” and “Congregation leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen” were displayed at the Van Gogh Museum for one night only. BVLGARI’s most iconic and divine collections were inspired by Serpenti’s motif found in ancient Rome. The Diva collection, inspired by the Caracalla thermal baths’ mosaic floors, offers the perfect example of how BVLGARI is, and has always been, in tune with the world of arts.

Van Gogh Museum Celebrates Van Gogh Paintings宝格丽 (BVLGARI) 在阿姆斯特丹梵高博物馆欢庆梵高的两幅画作回归。这是它们当年在上述博物馆遭失窃15年之后失而复得,这两件杰作是从意大利的那不勒斯 (Naples) 寻获。

由宝格丽贡献并联合意大利大使馆与意大利金融警卫队,特别为归还这两幅珍贵的名画举办了一场庆祝会。至于重见天日的“斯海弗宁恩海景”和“离开尼厄嫩教堂”这两幅画作仅在梵高博物馆展出了一个晚上,受邀参观这个私密庆祝会的客人们过后也在博物馆里享用晚餐。宝格丽最具代表性和神秘的系列设计灵感来自于古罗马的蛇形 (Serpenti) 系统图案,还有从罗马卡拉卡拉浴场的马赛克地板启发的Diva系列提供了一个完美的例子,彰显宝格丽永远与艺术世界一致的步伐。
