Join Me on My Vacheron Constantin Overseas East Coast Tour (Slide show)

 |  September 30th, 2016

Earlier this year we brought you news about the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Collection, its revamping and the introduction of the Overseas World Time watch. We also introduced you to images taken around the globe by famed photographer Steve McCurry, who shot a dozen key locations around the world for the brand’s Overseas World Tour campaign. That campaign was designed to appeal to today’s travelers — the ones who take but a few true necessities on trips with them: their phone, their passport, their credit card, camera and watch.  Last week we brought you a candid and exclusive interview with Steve McCurry about the challenges he faced when shooting the campaign. Now, we bring you a behind-the-scenes look at the three-day…

A Close-Up Look at the Luxurious Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille and at the Richard Mille RM11-03

 |  September 28th, 2016

Recently, at the invitation of Richard Mille, I had the wonderful opportunity to experience Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille. Held annually in the lace and equestrian region of France – not too far outside of Paris – this event is billed as a luxurious pastoral day in the country. And, the French certainly do understand the meaning of luxury and pastoral. With the Domaine de Chantilly chateau – complete with moat, towers, gardens, fountains and gargoyles – as the backdrop, the event is all about vintage cars, art, fashion and history. Attending is almost like stepping back in time. People dress in wonderful attire, with hats and feathers as accessories. They open the trunks of their vintage cars and…

In its ongoing effort to make its “Hublot loves Football” theme truly meaningful around the world, the brand turns to the good old-fashioned century-plus game of American football while on American soil.

Swatch Surfs the Big Waves with New Swatch by Coco Ho

 |  September 15th, 2016

  Competitive surfing was the highlight at Trestles Beach in Southern California, where the Swatch Women’s Pro Trestles was held, September 9 through 12. Swatch has been a sponsor of women’s pro surfing, and competitive surfer Coco Ho, a Swatch brand ambassador since 2010, was on hand to formally introduce the watch she designed, Swatch by Coco Ho. As part of the Swatch Pro Team, she partnered with the Switzerland-based brand to create a timepiece she “could wear straight from the ocean to the street.” “Time to me is a constant reminder to get the most meaning out of each day,” explains Coco, who apparently doesn’t waste a lot of it. She began surfing at just seven years old and…

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…
