Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Time, Charity and Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatches

 |  November 3rd, 2016

Today, thanks to Frederique Constant, I helped to buy books and novels for young students in America. The novels, I believe, will help open their eyes to other worlds, to themes that can be their mantras, or just to adventure. Without books, I would never have become the writer and dreamer that I am today. The effort came via a gift card given to me – and all others in attendance — at last week’s unveiling of the brand’s new Horological Smartwatch for women by Frederique Constant. The card was for use on the charitable site DonorsChoose.org. Here, you can choose the project you want to fund, so you know exactly where the donation is going. I found it both…

Jaeger-LeCoultre and Marc Newson Unveil $28,000 Atmos 568 Clock

 |  October 13th, 2016

For eight years, Jaeger-LeCoultre and famed commercial and architectural designer Marc Newson have worked together on multiple collaborations revolving around the famed Atmos watch – the clock that “lives on air.” Now the duo announces the newest fruit of their combined labor: Atmos 568 Marc Newson.

With a decidedly Newson spirit, the new design is startlingly open and pure when it comes to a contemporary appeal. However, it also has an incredible blend of heritage and technical virtuosity that emanate from Jaeger-LeCoultre, and also from the material that forms the outer crystal globe: Baccarat. Now, before I launch into a close up look…

Interview: Photographer Steve McCurry Talks About the Challenges of Capturing Vacheron Constantin Overseas Locations

 |  September 23rd, 2016

Recently, we announced the second set of six locations that famed photographer Steve McCurry shot for the Vacheron Constantin Overseas adventure. You can see some of those amazing images here. We also had the chance to talk with McCurry about the challenges he faced when selecting and shooting the locations.  Q: What was the biggest challenge you had in this project? SMC: “The entire project was a challenge, because it was all about human ingenuity and human architecture. As we went through the possible locations, I looked for how people were trying to solve problems with design – such as how to get water from the deep wells of India, or how to heard sheep across vast lands. So the…

Interview: Miami Marlins Right Fielder, Giancarlo Stanton, and TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador

 |  September 7th, 2016

Recently, I joined TAG Heuer on a trip to Miami for a host of events. Not only did I get to join the brand in its celebration of 100 Years of Innovation (with its involvement in auto racing and with the anniversary of the Carrera), but also I got to take in a Miami Marlins baseball game in the enclosed stadium and I got to spend some quality time talking with Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton. A TAG Heuer brand ambassador, Stanton’s reputation is varied. He has been called “injury prone,” as well as being called a modern day “superman.” In fact, Stanton does seem to be accident- or injury prone. It was recently announced that the Marlins lead…
