Oris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited Edition

HomeWatch ReviewOris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited Edition Watch ReviewOrisOris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited Edition Oris turns the class up to 11 with a jazz-influenced model from its Artelier collection by Ben HodgesFebruary 13, 2020 MIN READOris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited EditionWe previously announced the Oris Artelier James Morrison Academy of Music on Fratello here. And now we have the chance to test drive it on the wrist. The Acadamy of Music slots into the existing jazz collection, but this time, it is inspired by a living trumpeting legend, James Morrison.
After the announcement, and the excellent article by my fellow Fratello, Andreas, on the Art Blakey, I just had to get my hands on this piece. I applaud Andreas for combining the Oris Art Blakey review with his passion for percussion. I’m a guitarist, and although I’ve chosen a piece intended for a trumpet player, James Morrison regards himself as a multi-instrumentalist. I’m hoping that cov..

Swatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch Collection

HomeWatch ReleasesSwatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch Collection Watch ReleasesSwatchSwatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch Collection But is it to die for? by Rob NuddsFebruary 12, 2020 MIN READSwatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch CollectionThank goodness for Swatch. Whenever we might find ourselves taking everything a bit too seriously, everyone’s favorite plastic-peddler shows up with a joyous dollop of color to remind us that watchmaking is supposed to be fun. The new James Bond collection is exactly that.
The new James Bond film, No Time To Die, will mark Daniel Craig’s final outing as the British super-sleuth. To mark the occasion, Swatch has released six new watches. There’s some low-hanging fruit (hello Moonraker and Casino Royale), alongside some odder, niche choices (who would’ve predicted Licence to Kill and The World Is Not Enough making the cut when this idea hit the drawing board?).
Six new models will hit the market towards the end of February, a few weeks ahead ..

Meet The James Bond Superyacht Concept That Can Disappear

For anyone who grew up dreaming of James Bond’s ’63 Aston Martin’ now has something new to dream about—the Carapace. As with any James Bond vehicle, the Carapace will be capable of things beyond the imagination, including disappearing.

Designed by Naval architect Elena Nappi of the Italian shipbuilding company, Fincantieri, the superyacht concept is a hybrid vessel engineered to cruise the high seas above and below water. The 256-foot boat is capable of diving to depths of 985 feet for up to 10 days at a time.

As with any luxury yacht, the Carapace features several beautiful on-deck entertainment areas, including a beach club complete with a pool, a spa, a gym and VIP cabins. However, what makes this dreamboat standout is its aluminum superstructure, which can be completely sealed up so that it can operate underwater. Talk about secret lair, diplomats and business bosses will be able to hold meetings in complete secrecy. When completely submerged, guests and passengers alike will b..

We thought it would be interesting to share some impressions of that event, as Omega also took the opportunity to talk about their connection with military watches.
In the past years, I’ve had many experiences which I would have never had if I would still be working in real estate. Visiting NYC twice for two cool Omega events (one being our own Speedy Tuesday event in collaboration with Omega and the other this James Bond launch) is a privilege. Enjoy my report.

Purchaser’s Information: Omega Seamaster Watches of James Bond

Author: Rob NuddsWhen watch lovers hear the word ‘Seamaster’, it is likely the first model to pop into their head would be the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m. Given that model’s exposure (on the wrist of James Bond for the past 24 years, no less), it is totally understandable. However, the term ‘Seamaster’ actually refers to an entire range of tough, ready-for-anything watches that includes dressy pieces as well as highly refined tool watches, suitable for use in professional diving situations.
There are sub-families too, like the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, the Bullhead, the Ploprof, and even the independently iconic Railmaster. Each sub-family has their own identifiable characteristics and aesthetics, as well as target demographics. But none comes close to matching the importance of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m. While the world needs a hero like 007 to save the day once in a while, watch brands occasionally need a willing soldier to step into the fray and clear a path towards success. ..
