The World's famous watch returns to market

The World’s famous watch returns to market

- Patek Philippe Supercomplication -

One of the world’s most expensive watches goes up for sale again!

The sale of the Henry Graves Supercomplication will take place in Geneva on November 14th, fifteen years after it was sold for a record-breaking sum of $11 million. The last time the watch went on auction in 1999, it became the most expensive watch ever sold in an auction.

The gold pocket watch that features 24 complications was originally created by Patek Philippe in 1933, specifically for Henry Graves, a prominent New York banker and probably the most famous watch collector of the last century. The Patek Philippe Supercomplication measures and displays 24 different pieces of functions — including a perpetual calendar, moon phases, sidereal time, power reserve, and indications for time of sunset and sunrise and the night sky of New York City. It is one of the most sophisticated pocket watches every manufactured and it took 5 years to make and features over 900 individual parts!

The Supercomplication is a gold, open-face clockwatch complete with Westminster chimes, also known as the ‘Mona Lisa’ or ‘Holy Grail’ of watches. The supercomplication was born of Graves’ desire to outdo the Grande Complication pocketwatch of American auto maker James Ward Packard.

This time Sotheby’s will offer the 18-karat gold pocket watch with an estimate in excess of $17 million. The upcoming sale coincides with the Swiss watchmakers’ 175th anniversary.

Koenigsegg One:1 world's first megacar

Koenigsegg One:1 world’s first megacar

Koenigsegg Automotive AB is a Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars. New Koenigsegg one:1 is one of the most exclusive production car programs ever envisaged.

The Swedish specialists are taking the hypercar to the next mega level. New Agera One:1 is the first production car with a one megawatt of power (1,341 horsepower). The horsepower to kilogram ratio is a perfectly balanced 1:1, so it goes beyond super or hyper and is actually the “world’s first megacar.”

The extraordinary power are generated by twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 from the Agera R. Redesigned seven-speed dual clutch transmission is connected to the massively powerful engine, and takes a single technician three weeks to build. The seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and electronically-controlled differential makes sure all that grunt gets to the wheels.
Top speed is around 273mph, and it go from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds, 0-300km/h in about 12 seconds and 0-400 km/h in 20 seconds. The engine is flex-fuel-capable and able to run on gasoline, race fuel, or E85.

Only six examples of the extreme hypercars were built, and they’ve all sold out already. But you’ll be able to buy a form of it. “We’ll have the 2015 Agera up next – essentially a facelift – but it will feature a lot of the One:1 technology: the active chassis, the rear wing, the suspension, everything,” says Koenigsegg spokesman Andreas Petre.

Unfortunately you can not buy this megacar, but the magnificent Koenigsegg Agera R is available for purchase, and you can check it out in our shop. The One:1 actually is extreme model based upon the Agera model series.

BMW Concept Roadster

BMW Roadster bike

The historic car show Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is an elegance competition for classic and vintage cars, but it is also a place where makers take advantage of the event to showcase some of their upcoming models.

Automotive concepts like the Gran Lusso Coupé, BMW Zagato Coupe and motorcycles like the Concept 90, and just-revealed the gorgeous Mini Superleggera Vision are not all that BMW has to offer. At the recent Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance on Lake Como, BMW unveiled a stunning new bike called the Roadster Concept.

Ultra-modern motorcycle is built around the latest air- and liquid-cooled boxer twin, an 1,170cc engine officially rated 125 horsepower and 92.2 pound-feet of torque. That power is routed to the rear wheel via a cardan drive.

Roadster Concept’s beautifully styled seat is fabricated in aluminum and wrapped in Alcantara to provide a modicum of comfort. Up front there is a thin swath of LEDs for the headlights. A spoiler under the engine hides the huge resonator/muffler at the core of the Roadster Concept’s exhaust system. As on the HP2 Megamoto, triangulated steel-tubing trellis are painted metallic blue. Details with the colors (such as this one) give this motorcycle remarkable look.

Currently there are no words on production plans but this powerful BMW’s urban bike deserves to be on the street. More information about extreme motorcycles you can find in our shop. Who knows, you might find one that really suits you.

Omega Constellation Pluma 2014

Omega Constellation Pluma 2014

Omega is a Swiss luxury watchmaker. In 1917 Britain’s Royal Flying Corps chose Omega watches as its official timekeepers for its combat units, as did the American army in 1918. This year Omega unveils extremely elegant new watch for ladies and managed to go one step further in the production of women’s watches.

Beautiful Omega model – the Omega Constellation Pluma is a gorgeous ladies’ watch. The “Pluma” took its name from the Latin word for feather.

The 27mm timepiece comes in three colourways, white and gold mother-of-pearl with a red gold bezel, a blue mother-of-pearl dial or a champagne mother-of-pearl dial with a yellow gold bezel which.
The blue dial is created using a technique that coats the underside of a white mother-of-pearl with a black paint. The blue model has a case, bezel, and bracelet all in stainless steel. The dials of the Constellation Pluma have 11 diamond indices set in 18-carat gold holders and a date window at 3 o’clock.

Pal-V One – flying car

Pal-V One – flying car

Ever dreamed of owning a flying car? Well, from dreams to reality, the world of the flying cars is here! You can now purchase your own personal flying car PAL-V One for $395,000 with deliveries starting in 2016 with a maximum production capability of 150 units per year for the first two or three years. Now you can fly-drive to almost any destination!

This spectacular machine promises an unforgettable ride on the road and in the air! Technically it’s a three-wheeled motorcycle that transforms into a gyrocopter. Pal-V One can reach speeds of up to 112 mph and goes from 0 to 60 in under 8 seconds when driven on the road, and takes just 10 minutes to convert between modes. Personal Air and Land Vehicle (Pal-v) uses an autogyro flight system, with a 230-horsepower gasoline engine spinning a rear-facing propeller and an auto-rotating, retractable main rotor to generate lift. So if the engine fails, the craft still can land safely thanks to the lift generated by its auto-rotating main rotor.

Fly out of a traffic jam is not so simply because Pal-V requires 540ft of runway to take off and 100ft to land. But it flies below 4,000ft, so interfering with commercial air traffic is not an issue. Once the engine stops, the propeller folds itself automatically into the driving position.

A main requirement was to create a land-air vehicle that anyone could use. For that reason, the company has created a 3D simulator so people can practice take-offs, landings, and steering, before getting behind the stick of the real thing. They even simulate many real airports around the world that people might take off from.
