Miami’s Historic La Brisa

Miami’s new gorgeous property selling for $65 million is located in the heart of Coconut Grove, aka “the original Miami.” Known as La Brisa, the historical mansion is the most expensive residence currently for sale in Miami-Dade County.

The 6.9-acre waterfront property features 13,800-square-foot residence and two-bedroom guest house. La Brisa offers 9 bedrooms, 8 full baths, three partial baths, and 16,500 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space. This amazing property offers views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, over 3,000 square feet of outdoor living space, a pool, a spa, and a private port that can accommodate a 70-foot yacht and offers direct ocean access.

The nine-bedroom residence sits upon an ancient coral reef approximately 23 feet above sea level. There are also the four-car garage, Key West-style quest cottage, the pool and sunken fire pit surrounded by an expensive patio made from coral stone.

La Brisa boasts a very colorful history. The land was first deeded in 1886 to Kirk Munroe, a famous author of children’s novels and book about Florida, and his wife Mary Barr Munroe. In 1920 they sold the land to John B. Semple, a Pittsburgh lawyer. Later the property was purchased by Henry Field, a grand-nephew of the founder of the Marshall Field’s department store chain.

Patek Philippe unveils $2.6 million watch

Patek Philippe unveils $2.6 million watch

Patek Philippe unveiled the extremely impressive Grandmaster Chime timepiece. The new $2.6 million watch features 18-karat gold and sapphire crystals and it’s the most expensive wristwatch Patek has ever built.

This absolutely stunning watch has two faces. The front dial tells the time, while the second on the back is for the calendar. The Grandmaster Chime is the most complicated wristwatch ever, featuring 20 different complications. On front dial at 12 o’clock is alarm sub dial and located at six o’clock is date and moon phase, while the second dial displays the month, date and leap year cycle and the day of the week. It’s a limited edition watch, meaning that only seven timepieces will be produced, and Patek will hold one that will be kept in the company’s private collection in Geneva.

There is also a special procedure about purchasing the watch. Buyers must apply to purchase one of the watches and then they will have to prove their passion for Patek to the company’s president. “I would like to chat with the client and make sure he’s a watch lover and make sure he’s going to enjoy the watch for many years,” said Thierry Stern, President of Patek Philippe.

The 47.4 mm rose gold case features hand-engraved intricate art on every surface. It is powered by the Caliber 300 movement which is larger than most of the Patek’s watches, measuring 37 mm.
The case turns on a vertical axis to alternate between the two.

Tushek TS 600

Tushek TS 600

The company from Slovenia, Tushek & Speigel, introduced its all new model T600 at the 2014 Top Marques Monaco. Slovenian supercar startup Tushek has been rebranded Tushek & Spigel and is now based in Austria. The previous model was the Renovatio T500, revealed to the world at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco.

The Tushek TS 600 is an update of the previous T500 and it features a lot of different elements which make it completely unique. The car will be built by hand and can be individually tailored to meet the desires of its buyer. T600 will feature its own V-8 engine, producing 620 horsepower and presumably around 400 pound-feet of torque. Given its relatively modest weight, that translates to an incredible 4-to-1 pound:horsepower ratio.

The company also says the car weighs 2,470 pounds. It is made exclusively from lightweight racing and aviation-spec materials, as titanium, carbon and aluminium.

Production of the car will begin later this year limited to 60 units. But not all 60 cars will be the same, half will be road-going models, half track-only “Pista” variants with an additional 50 horses. Alcantara, leather, aluminium and carbon adorn the interior.

Power is not all the T600 offers either, as its chassis allows it to hold a massive 1.8 G on a skid pad.
