Baselworld’s Best 2015.


Brikk-Lux-Watch-Omni

Responding to a barrage of smartwatch launches from tech brands including Samsung, LG, Sony and now Apple, a few traditional watchmakers have developed their own connected timepieces.  These innovative horological creations are on display at Baselword, which is taking place through March 26.

The Frédérique Constant Horological Smartwatch

Frédérique Constant and Alpina have partnered to develop their first smartwatches, two devices combining traditional Swiss horological craftsmanship with technological innovation. Both are compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and offer analog activity and sleep tracking functions, along with a quartz movement. Battery life is advertised at over two years. The Frédérique Constant Horological Smartwatch has a rose gold plated case and a sleek silvered dial. This analog smartwatch is due to launch in late May/early June for just under €1,000 (under $1,080).

Alpina chose to repurpose the design of its Comtesse watch for this smartwatch aimed at women. Housed in a 39mm steel case that is waterproof up to 100 meters, the device features a black dial adorned with diamond indices. The Alpina Horological Smartwatch will also be available by June for less than €1,000 (under $1,080).

Like the Withings Activité, the Helvetica 1 has a dedicated subdial showing the wearer’s progress towards a given goal. The model is due to launch this fall at an unannounced price.

Unveiled in a world premiere in Basel, the first smartwatch from the Italian brand is a ceramic and magnesium model that is still in the prototype stage. The Diagonon Magnesium stands out for its NFC chip, which Bulgari is touting as a security key that would allow users to securely and easily unlock a smartphone. Bulgari has stated its intention of launching a production model before the end of 2015.

McLaren P1 Broke Record on The Nürburgring Ring


McLaren-P1-600x375

A video posted to YouTube shows the UK supercar company’s latest flagship, the P1, setting an unbelievable lap time of just 6 minutes 47 seconds. If true, then that would make the P1 the fastest street-legal production car in history to lap the historic and terrifying circuit, known in the trade as the Green Hell. The 12.8-mile (20.6km) undulating track has in recent years become the proving ground for any car with sporting aspirations. As a result, those that know base their supercar and hypercar buying decisions not on acceleration or top speed, but on that all-important lap time. Currently the production car lap-time record is held by the equally rare and exotic Porsche 918 Spyder. In September it became the first such car to lap the circuit in less than seven minutes, posting a confirmed time of six minutes, 57 seconds. To put that into perspective, the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1 managed it in seven minutes 19 seconds and the mighty Ferrari Enzo in seven minutes and 25 seconds. All of which would make the McLaren time — it shaves a whole 10 seconds off the record — even more remarkable.

Exotic Beetles

Chinese artist Kebel Li exposes the magnificence of earth’s insect species in his sculptural work with beetles. The already deceased bugs are reproduced to appear as if in their habitat, closely mimicking their instinctual gestures. Li collects extremely rare and visually fascinating beetles from around the world, which exhibit incredible physical characteristics like gleaming metallic exoskeletons and razor sharp horns. In order to properly and optimally conserve the specimens, they undergo a lengthy preservation process: the dried insects are put into a relax chamber filled with wet paper and anti-molding chemicals, which makes their joints movable again. They are then carefully pinned and posed onto an organic branch base and left to dry there for 4-5 days. The insects are chemically stable and, without physical damage, will stay preserved in this state for hundreds of years.

What started as a photographer trying to capture as much as he could while traveling while his girlfriend pulled him along has now become an internet sensation. Russian producer Murad Osmann and his gorgeous girlfriend, Natalia Zakharova, have been traveling the world together for quite some time. Beginning in Barcelona in September of 2011, Osmann started labeling his Instagram photospictures “Follow me” where he takes beautiful pictures of his girlfriend pulling his arm through exotic and familiar locations around the world. In the small breaks between his busy work schedule, the jet-setting lovebirds have travelled to Singapore, Bali, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, England, and China and continue to document their journeys.
